Publisher's Summary

When 007 goes to Harlem, it's not just for the jazz. This is the kingdom of Mr. Big, master of crime, voodoo baron, and partner in SMERSH's grim company of death. Those Mr. Big cannot possess he crushes - like his beautiful prisoner, Solitaire, and her would-be saviors James Bond and Agency man Felix Leiter. All three are marked out as victims in a trail of terror, treachery, and torture that leads from New York's underworld to the shark-infested island in the sun that Mr. Big calls his own.
This audiobook includes an exclusive bonus interview with Rory Kinnear.

Most Helpful

Double "O" old-school racism, weak narration

What would have made Live and Let Die better?

Better narrator. Wandering accents from the main characters, cringe-worthy character bits, lacked conviction overall.


What do you think your next listen will be?

Another James Bond! Casino Royale was a surprise and a joy. Still hopeful for the rest of the series.


Would you be willing to try another one of Rory Kinnear’s performances?

Nope.


If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Live and Let Die?

Not a fan of abridged versions or censorship.


Any additional comments?

Nope.

Preposterous second half

Dated in an illuminating way. Interesting example of British mid-century racial views. Once they get to Jamaica things get completely ridiculous. Ian Fleming 's fish ignorance is displayed at excruciating, pointless length.
