Publisher's Summary

Almost before the last echoes of the famous guns have died away, the three Navarone heroes are parachuted into war-torn Yugoslavia to rescue a division of partisans and fulfil a secret mission, so deadly that it must be hidden even from their own allies.

What the Critics Say

''Could hardly be bettered.'' (Sunday Times)
''Its strength comes from the speed of its narrative, its vivid creation of tensions and its power in handling descriptions of action.'' (Evening Standard)
''Action sustained at a high pitch. From the outset there is a feeling of suspense: a problem that can only be solved by action involving danger and demanding courage...an insistently gripping tale.'' (Scotsman)

    Story
    "Better than the Guns of Navarone"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Great version and Jonathan Oliver does a great job in portraying the voices of the the individual characters


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Much better than the movie the ending was thrilling but other parts were slow in developing


    Which character – as performed by Jonathan Oliver – was your favorite?

    Miller and Mallory you could visualize from the movie


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I had a tear in my eye at the end of the audiobook


    Any additional comments?

    Alistair Maclean always treats the German soldiers with respect and as a note he died in Frankfort, Germany. The old schoolteacher was in the Royal Navy during WWII. He entered a contest about the sea and won. He moved to Switzerland because of the high taxes at home. Really admire his work

    Story
    "Sequel to the Movie, Not the Book"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Someone who has not yet read "the Guns of Navaronne" or who can take this as a stand-alone novel.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Alistair MacLean again?

    Yes. I like his books.


    What three words best describe Jonathan Oliver’s performance?

    Uneven, unlikely in spots.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Confusion. MacLean keeps the final objective secret until the very last part of the book.
