Carte Blanche: The New James Bond Novel

Unabridged Audiobook

Duration: 13 hours 31 minutes

Summary:

Jeffery Deaver has been selected to pen the newest installment of the Bond series, an adrenaline-fueled thriller set in the present day, with a thirty-year-old James Bond going head-to-head against perhaps the most compelling and horrific villains in modern thriller fiction. This isn’t the Cold War Bond; it’s the best of Fleming and Deaver in one seriously sharp and stylish novel. Bond’s license to kill meets Deaver’s razor-sharp storytelling and shocking plot twists in a cat-and-mouse game that takes Bond from the Balkans to London and ultimately to a searing climax on the African Continent. Deaver has outdone himself in re-creating the iconic character of Bond, his uncompromising courage and style, his wit and seductiveness, in a novel that captures everything beloved about the classic books, along with an international thriller plot that moves with breathtaking speed from page one to the final paragraph.

Genres:

  • Anonymous

    Lackluster, sporadic action and suspense. Too much narrative details. Trying to establish more of Bond's life and character but it just gets boring.

    Not bad! As it was my first audio book I had to adjust not seeing Bond on the big screen. Enjoyed listening!

    meh... Ok since the review must be 50 characters long I will say it again. meh...
