Licence To Thrill???
Licence Renewed is a mid-point book, neither stunning or awful. Most of it is down to the formulaic writing of the author rather than the performance. However, this is James Bond and formulaic isn't necessarily a bad thing (and definitely not unexpected).
I have listened to two John Gardner - James Bond books and read one too. All diverting and better than listening to the radio.
I enjoyed the bits set in Scotland, even if I had to put up with a few stereotypes along the way. Definitely a 1980s James Bond.
I did listen to this book in one sitting as I was driving to Paris.
