Read À bientôt… Online Free - In À bientôt..., which he was still writing days before he passed away, the late, great Sir Roger Moore looks back on his life – and gives it his trademark sideways glance. Nostalgic, funny, charming and, most importantly, very human, his reflections on age and ageing encompass all aspects of this universal experience, from reminiscences on childhood and ‘what might have been’; keeping abreast of the ever-changing times; senior moments, memory and getting to grips with technology; the joys – and frustrations – of travel; work and play. Along with these he tells of the intense happiness – and some equally intense sadnesses – of family life.
Featuring his own drawings throughout, this book sees Roger at his most open and forthright. The true stories and situations he shares reveal a ‘Bond Unbound’, the human being inside the action-adventure character that made him so famous the world over. Always upbeat and – as ever – endearingly self-effacing and unpretentious, in À bientôt… Roger shares the joys he experienced every day along with the tiny triumphs that life brings to us all at the most unexpected times.

I first met Roger Moore as Ivanhoe on the Saturday afternoon t...

This is the third memoir (of sorts, only “My Word Is My Bond” is a full autobiography) by Sir Roger Moore and was delivered to the publisher just two weeks before the great man passed away. That knowledge - and the title, ‘see you soon’ - add a sense of poignancy to this book which is another won...

This is a short and breezy little read. It’s also very funny. As a person, Roger Moore seemed incredibly decent, and surprisingly aware of how he was perceived. I mean, parts of it are a bit Alan Partridge (which isn’t a bad thing). He talks candidly about the ups and downs of ageing, the decline...

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and completed it in one sitting as I could not put it down. Sir Roger Moore made me laugh and cry with his humbling wit and touching praise and love for his wife. I am sad that this is his last but so grateful for all of the wonderful work he has shared.
