Publisher's Summary

A game of canasta turns out crooked and a golden girl ends up dead. It seems that Auric Goldfinger is a bad loser when it comes to cards. He’s also the world’s most ruthless and successful gold smuggler. As James Bond follows his trail, he discovers that Goldfinger’s real game is the heist of fifteen billion dollars of US government bullion. The final hand is played at Fort Knox, in a spectacular display of deception and intrigue.
Includes an exclusive bonus interview with Hugh Bonneville.
Ian Fleming was born in London in 1908. He was educated at Eton and worked as a journalist in Moscow and a banker and stockbroker in London before becoming personal assistant to the Director of Naval Intelligence during the Second World War. He wrote his first Bond novel, Casino Royale, in 1952 at Goldeneye, his home in Jamaica. Since then James Bond has gone on to become a global phenomenon.
Hugh Bonneville is perhaps best known for his role as Robert Crawley, Earl of Grantham in the hit series Downton Abbey. Other TV credits include W1A, Twenty Twelve, Lost in Austen, Bonekickers, The Silence and Rev. On the big screen he’s been seen in Monuments Men, Iris, Notting Hill, and the James Bond movie, Tomorrow Never Dies.

Surprisingly different from the movie

Great story with a no less great interpretation from Hugh. Was surprised to see a difference in the final narrative that climaxed the story as opposed to the movie, but nonetheless effective at keeping me interested in the story. Goldfinger is still my favorite movie in the franchise, and the book is by now my favorite as well.

Bond at His Best

Where does Goldfinger rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It's up there among the best. I've listened to this read by Rufus Sewell in the past which was excellent, and I feared listening to the 'Earl of Grantham' do Bond may feel odd, but the narration was great.

What did you like best about this story?

This Flemming at his best. Bond is on excellent form having been on night duty for a number of months and when he gets his chance to head out into the field again he grasps it. The golf scene is a real classic.

What about Hugh Bonneville’s performance did you like?

I liked the fact that I barely noticed it was wasn't Connery. Hugh Bonneville doesn't attempt any awkward Connery impression, he does it in his own style and it works.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Um... The name's Bond, James Bond.

Any additional comments?

Well worth a listen. You know what you're getting if you're a Flemming fan, if you're not, this is a great place to start.

great story great pace

Would you listen to Goldfinger (with Interview) again? Why?

well read, well written really engaging story

What other book might you compare Goldfinger (with Interview) to, and why?

nearly as good as from Russia with love - in my opinion

What about Hugh Bonneville’s performance did you like?

good pace, narration doesn't distract from the story but his performance draws you in.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Bond better than Reacher

Any additional comments?

one of my favourites - if they made the Bond films more like the books we would have much better films

Bonneville is exceptional!

I enjoyed this book more than any I've listened to in ages.
Not because of Flemings sexist, homophobic, lesbophobic story (I do appreciate it was the 50's) but because of the fantastic story telling of Hugh Bonneville. He was brilliant! Loads of different character voices done well and repeated well. I honestly thought there were more actors that just him!
