YOU ONLY LIVE TWICE is a departure from the more familiar James Bond installments; in this one Fleming gives Bond a bit more character development. And no matter how dated the material, with its references to President Kennedy, Khrushchev, and the Cold War, the plot stands the test of time and never fails to deliver pure entertainment. Robert Whitfield carries the exact measure of British inflection while delivering the famous Bond "off-the-cuff" humor. He deftly transforms the precise narrative and dialogue into the distinctive characters of the Japanese Tiger Tanaka, the Aussie Dikko Henderson, and Bond's nemesis, the German Blofeld. Whitfield IS James Bond. M.F.D. © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 03]
