Most Helpful

Classic Bond superbly narrated

Would you listen to You Only Live Twice again? Why?

The book has so many interesting aspects and themes to it, I would certainly listen to it again.

What was one of the most memorable moments of You Only Live Twice?

The final showdown with Blofeld is classic Bond and classic Fleming.

What does Martin Jarvis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Martin Jarvis really puts in a superb performance. His rendition of Tiger Tanaka is as good as it gets.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Bond visiting the stone pedestal bodies prior to the showdown at the castle, and the reading of Bond's obituary.

Any additional comments?

It's not the best best Fleming Bond novel, but it is part of the classic Blofeld/SPECTRE trilogy and is still highly enjoyable. The narrator really does a good job with this.

Better than Simon Vance

The narrator is better than on the generic audible recordings, but I was not pleased with his Bond voice, it felt to old.
