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 bland Bond adventure

Having Sir Roger Moore reminiscing about Bond does seem perfect on paper but its more of a man rambling on sometimes sounding incoherent at times that makes this audiobook hard to stay focused.

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

Thankfully a short listen

Just awful, lots of recounting of who did or didn’t play Bond for whatever reason ect ect combined with Mr Moore and his very slow delivery this is truly dull.
A few bits of interesting information but not much you wouldn’t already know with a quick scan of the Bond Wiki page. Save the credit and move on Double O Seven.

A Well-Rounded Retrospective of Bond

It's amazing how much juicy substance can be stuffed into an audiobook that falls short of five hours in length. Roger Moore's retrospective account of James Bond's legacy is rife with stories and amusing little moments that makes the time fly by. It's not the funniest or most interesting audiobook but it serves its purpose very well and does exactly what it sets out to do.

Interesting with some good anecdotes

For a mild Bond fan this was an interesting read. There was some behind the scenes info and a few stories about characters like Cubby Broccoli that were nice. Roger Moore has a very dry and often self deprecating sense of humour that comes across in his reading.

Part of this are a bit formulaic and there is some overall with The James Bond Diaries: Filming Live and Let Die but overall I would still recommend it.

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.
