LIVE AND LET DIE James Bond: The Collection, Book 2

by | Read by Adjoa Andoh

Mystery & Suspense • 7.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1954

Adjoa Andoh, a Shakespearean-trained actress and Golden Voice, is a great choice to narrate this James Bond classic. Andoh scales back the superhero image associated with the bombastic Bond films and returns 007 to his literary roots, dry and elegant. The second in the Ian Fleming series takes Bond on an underworld journey to Jamaica via New York City as he tracks Mr. Big, a gangster selling pirate booty who may be working for the Russians. Andoh highlights Fleming's literary strengths: economy of language, cleverly constructed and occasionally meandering plots, and willingness to go lurid--as when Bond has his finger broken by Tee Hee, Mr. Big's henchman. Thanks to Andoh's sophisticated voicings and strong pacing, Fleming's work retrieves its dignity. R.W.S. © AudioFile 2024, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2024]
