I listened to this mainly because I'm a fan of Toby Stephens and thought his narration of From Russia with love was fantastic, but I can't say I'd recommend this book. Toby does a good job, although some of the accents are slightly dodgy, but the narration can't really save this story. It has potential but the plot drags and the writing is clunky. Deaver's characterisation of Bond is terribly boring and frankly a bit embarrassing. The novel picks up a bit towards the end but overall I'm not too impressed.
Lackluster, sporadic action and suspense. Too much narrative details. Trying to establish more of Bond's life and character but it just gets boring.
Not bad! As it was my first audio book I had to adjust not seeing Bond on the big screen. Enjoyed listening!
Ok since the review must be 50 characters long I will say it again.
