This Blackstone Audio unabridged edition of LIVE AND LET DIE by Ian Fleming comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available, powered by the Folium enhancedAudio™ engine (see below for full feature descriptions).
“SIMON VANCE'S POLISHED VOICE IS AN ENCHANTING ACCOMPANIMENT to Fleming's exotic settings and stories. His English accent is as smooth as a dry martini—shaken not stirred—and he slips into other accents as easily as the fictional 007 slips out of a dangerous situation and into the bed of a beautiful woman.” (AudioFile Magazine)
Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves.
NOTICE: This app includes the same 5-star recording that is available through other online outlets at higher prices. It is unabridged and professionally recorded at Blackstone Audio by award-winner Simon Vance, a perennial listener favorite. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here.

“Live and Let Die is one of Ian Fleming’s best plots, hard-hitting and violent in a way that none of the others are. The writing displays the author’s confident ability to sweep the reader along at a breakneck pace with an engaging rhythm and flow.”
—Raymond Benson, author of High Time to Kill.
RATING: We chose to rate this app 12+ due to fictional danger and other lifelike situations used throughout the book.
