IAN FLEMING The Man Behind James Bond

by | Read by Robert Whitfield [Simon Vance]

Biography & Memoir • 24 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1995

A rich life story is matched with an ideal reader. Andrew Lycett’s literate, well-researched biography of Ian Fleming--whose string of James Bond novels capped an exciting life that included wartime service, espionage and love affairs--is an absorbing account of one of the most fascinating figures of popular culture. Lycett’s sure grasp of the Bond novels also allows him to refer to pertinent and familiar scenes that reflect Fleming’s many travels and earlier experiences. Robert Whitfield narrates the text in clear, crisp BBC English. His brisk pace fits Lycett’s trim, balanced sentences. Fleming loved privilege, and his life story is served well by a reader whose performance connotes a patrician equanimity and style. G.H. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 98]
