Good narrative but very slim/unbelievable story

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

It is fast moving story and it does keep your attention. The narration reminded me of the original Bond books, so it was a relatively pleasant experience. The dumb story line took way form that enjoyment.

Would you ever listen to anything by John Gardner again?

Yes

Which character – as performed by Simon Vance – was your favorite?

Bond

Do you think Win, Lose or Die needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

No. There is not much story to follow up on. Whether Bond hooks up with the heroine could be woven into any future story - not a follow up to this one.

Any additional comments?

No

simply awful

so many basic holes. a lazy pastiche. cashing in on the series.
thoughtlessly put together . a set of random words would have been better.
