James Bond seems unable to function after the death of his wife. Determined to restore 007 to the effective agent he used to be, M sends him on a mission to Japan, to the mysterious "Castle of Death", and into the lair of an old and terrifying enemy. For Bond and Blofeld, this will be their final encounter. Only one of them can survive.

    Story
    "Classic Bond superbly narrated"
    Would you listen to You Only Live Twice again? Why?

    The book has so many interesting aspects and themes to it, I would certainly listen to it again.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of You Only Live Twice?

    The final showdown with Blofeld is classic Bond and classic Fleming.


    What does Martin Jarvis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Martin Jarvis really puts in a superb performance. His rendition of Tiger Tanaka is as good as it gets.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Bond visiting the stone pedestal bodies prior to the showdown at the castle, and the reading of Bond's obituary.


    Any additional comments?

    It's not the best best Fleming Bond novel, but it is part of the classic Blofeld/SPECTRE trilogy and is still highly enjoyable. The narrator really does a good job with this.

    "Better than Simon Vance"

    The narrator is better than on the generic audible recordings, but I was not pleased with his Bond voice, it felt to old.
