    "Very interesting Autobiography."

    It is always a pleasure when you read/listen to a book that has something that you can relate to, Roger Moore is one of those people, someone we all know and like.

    A great listen, thoroughly enjoyabe and as with most Autobiogs there is always a little something you get to find out that you never knew.

    Well worth the listen.

    "Superb!"

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book, Roger Moore is as smooth and witty as ever, will now look for other books narrated by him, his voice is very easy to listen too - an essential skill for audio books!

    Story
    "Too short and (sorry) too old"

    I came away from this with two impressions. Firstly, that this Abridged version has cut Mr Moore's life story down to the bare minimum in order not to strain his voice during the recordings. It just left too much out of what's been an interesting life. It doesn't help that a big chunk at the end is devoted to his work for UNICEF - a charity that he is deservedly passionate about, but for the listener it means even less of his film career is covered in this brief 2hrs 40mins. My second impression was (sorry to be cruel) that at 80 years old Mr Moore's voice is too far gone to bring the necessary energy to the telling. He starts with a bounce at each new section but then quickly dies away into a slowish slur. The same fault applies to his 'Bond on Bond' recording.

    For those who want a slice of Roger Moore's wonderful wit and bonhomie, I recommend instead 'Last Man Standing' - interesting and funny tales from his movie and TV career - which is both Unabridged and read in a decent Moore--ish drawl by the excellent Jonathan Keeble.

    "Timely exit"

    Interesting story but sadly Roger Moore a little bit too old now. Humour a little strange and lacking. On the whole disappointing as in no mind he is a middle aged James Bond not an old man. Basically enjoyed it though

    "Bond Lite - But A Delightful Listen"

    Roger Moore's abridged biography is, like his Bond films, easy going. Moore infuses the read with natural passion, in his exquisite voice which his fans will no doubt enjoy. Note that this is more memoir lite than in depth stuff - probably because it's abridged. Moore also remains the impeccable Gentleman, which perhaps explains why he isn't the gossiping type. He admits dissing Grace Jones in Octopussy - in a rare flash of anger. While this is not a salacious read, it is certainly for those who grew up on Roger Moore as Bond or the Saint. 5 stars for the enjoyable read. 3.5 stars for the story. And 4 overall!
