The accout of a gentleman

In this book the self deprecating Roger Moore tells the story of the screen hero, James Bond from the first Eon production of Dr No through to the second Craig outing, Quantum of Solace. Moore is generous to a fault, no only in his praise of all of the movies and people involved through to his donation of part proceeds to UNESCO.



What you loose on the plates you gain on the warmth and wit of Moore's voice as he tells us about his and others experiences on the movies. Being a personal friend of both producers, Saltzman and Broccili he has insight into the franchise that no other person has and he brings this into his narrative. Being invited to every opening screening and also being on the set for his seven outings as well as his personal connections makes this a unique account.



This audiobook is a must for any Bond fan or even Moore fan, even if you have the paper version if only to experience that wit and warmth that Moore is now famous for.

Shaken not stirred

I love James Bond and I love listening to Sir Roger Moore, he was my first James Bond and who better to ask to cast his wry eye over the Bonds. He reads his book superbly, giving us all insights into the world of Bond with his humour coming across at all times. Excellent.

A great insight into Bond

A short enough audio book that didn't take too long to get through. There are lots of good stories from behind the scenes. Roger Moore was easy to listen to.

Apologies dear Roger

Even at full volume it's hard to hear the audio. Someone else should have read the book

Entertaining and witty

An enjoyable listen, more so than I expected, with lots of interesting background information. Warning - don't repeat Roger Moore's pronunciation of Japanese drinks and names, they are frankly atrocious and no native speaker would have any clue what he's saying.

The 00 files

Sir Roger Moore narrates his bond book well, giving glimpses down the barrel into the extended world of 007. Amongst the more taster tit-bits are an amazing collection of lists with statistics or rankings for all sorts things from which film outgrossed which another title, the number of times this or that happened in a film, but where the book wins is in the intermate stories about the cast and crew that have made the Bond franchise such a premiere brand. Covering all the film, even the two that are outside the cannon up until Quantum of Solace. Why read, when the great Roger Moore will whisper it into your ear.

a bit too factual

Just loved the indomitable Sir Roger Moore, felt I'd heard most of it before in his other book unfortunately.

Moore or less what I expected

Didn’t expect to hear new insights as an avid bond fan but enjoy his class, self deprecating humour delivered in his charming voice. During his run through of Bond it was easy to imagine he was still alive. The only downside was the book ending and coming back down to earth sans Sir Roger Moore.

An absolutely delightful treat

Roger Moore reads and is warm, self deprecating, realistic and a lovely gentleman as he tells hilarious and fascinating tales of life before, during and after Bond from his perspective. The Desmond Llewelyn / Q stories had me roaring with laughter especially. His praise for others is generous as is his self awareness of his own shortcomings. I'd just wish his grace and good manners had not prevented him from revealing the names of the on set baddies (apart from Grace Jones, who must have been particularly bonkers to rattle Rog) he instead holds back as a real gentleman should. Also, so refreshing to be immersed in his 20th century culture, attitudes and humour which in these grim days of the PC Marxist cultural war would be condemned for being something "....ist" in every sentence (and of course it is not) Funny, sad in places and thrilling - everything a Bond book should be!

Bond is still Bond

What did you like best about Bond on Bond? What did you like least?

Roger Moore is a pleasure to listen too, some humor that is almost over your shoulder and missed if you do not listen too closely. What did I like the least, I suppose I just expected more regarding the making of the movies, back of set fun and games. This does go into that but seemed to lack. It was too much like a dictionary for my liking

Would you be willing to try another book from Roger Moore? Why or why not?

Yes, a great voice, one I could listen too over and over.

Could you see Bond on Bond being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

I have always been particular to say each actor who played Bond was the right one for the moment however, if a movie or TV series of this book would have to be someone with a great wit. Maybe Rowan Atkinson, John Cleese (yes I know he's been in the movies) or even, as this is a book like a dictionary of history, David Tennant or Matt Smith. You can take Bond Seriously but its best done, in my opinion as a retrospective tongue in cheek.

Any additional comments?

This was enjoyable, but be a big fan to listen all the way through. I am glad I did.
