Ce que les auditeurs disent de You Only Live Twice
impeccable story of another 007 adventure
First the reading: you can perceive the different characters as being told and imagine their appearance in your own visual mind as the reader portrays the different vocal expressions of the characters in the story. second the story: amazing and incredible. taking my mind across a world never imagined and yet giving my visual references to relate to the scenery. leading the reader to the last word. which I can only imagine if one was reading the physical book would want to turn the last page for more. thank you to the reader and audible and Ian Fleming for this book. thank you
