You could try youtube,  they have several audiobooks to listen to, which could help.  The
audio books can be bought on ebay quite cheaply.
for youtube  type in the search function " James Bond audio books "

This is a good idea I think. It will allow me to listen to someone as if they are reading the books then I can enjoy. Thank you.

a thread called " Worst Fleming Bond Novel "  ajb007/rolleyes

Even through my insane 50 year love of Fleming's Bond novels I can admit that some are better than others* (which is true of any author)- perhaps titling the thread "Weakest" rather than "Worst" would have been less confrontational?

* reading them in order, I think most would agree that DAF is weaker than its immediate successor FRWL, for example.

This is a question i ask of my ajb friends. I wonder if you could recomend any James Bond books that would be easy for some one who is not good with the written english language? I tried to read casino royal but I could not understand and apprectiate it. I would like to read a James Bond book.

I tend to recommend Moonraker, as it's fairly short and quite a straightforward adventure story, plus you get to learn the rules of Bridge!

ajb007/martini  Good choice  ( and what a card game it is )  ajb007/wink
The Books were written in a different time, so they're not
PC  by today's standards. Infact the use of the 'N'  word
In some of the Books ( LALD, DAF  for example )
Makes me cringe. ajb007/crap
