This book is spectacular. The best Fleming book in the series. It feels very up to date in many aspects and the characters are round and have depth in them.
Jason Isaacs performance is superb and enjoyable.
Would you consider the audio edition of Thunderball to be better than the print version?
What about Jason Isaacs’s performance did you like?
Jason's ability to capture the accents and personalities for all of teh characters added so much to the enjoyment of this book.
I could listen to this narrator for a long time, Great story and perfect narration. Probably my favourite narration so far, I'm listening to these Audio Go releases in order of the original releases.

I don't recall the film so there are no comparisons here. Bond is surprisingly rich as a character. For those with particular sensibilities they will find Fleming's language and attitudes dated. Remembering the time it was written it gives a flavour for the contemporary attitudes and language. Like others I find the book surprisingly satisfying in terms of both the hero, his accomplices and the villains. The last of these being far more plausible than the films suggest.
This is the first time I have heard Jason Isaacs read and would listen to him again.

I am so glad that Audible has made the James Bond Series available. I love these books. In many ways they are different than the movies, however, the basic story is similar. I think Bond is portrayed as a more believable character who is human and not as "bulletproof" as in the movie. I thoroughly enjoy the obvious expression of the time in which these event may have occurred. I simpler time but faithfully reproduced in this and the other Bond stories.I intend to work my way through the entire library of Bond stories. The performance of Jason Isaacs is excellent too. Highly recommended.
