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.

It was with a touch of sadness that I began reading A Bientot, knowing that it was Roger Moore's final book. However, only one chapter in & I was laughing out loud as Moore's legendary humour worked its magic once again.
While the former 007/Saint/all round action hero/UNICEF ambassador had wr...

My sincere respect and admiration to Sir Roger Moore. It really has been a very good read. I admire the way he faces old age and I wish I was as strong as him. He reminds me of my father, another great person who knew how to behave with dignity when death came.
In his memoirs, Sir Roger Moore show...

Staring with this book I was pacing myself knowing very well that this is the last time we get to hear something new for Sir Roger Moore UNICEF ambassador and movie-star extraordinaire as he no longer toils on this mortal environment.
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...

Short and sweet, if you want to know about Roger Moore and his life in the movies, you're better off with his other efforts; my word is my bond, bond on bond and last man standing. This is more Roger's views on life, old age and mainly, what annoys him about modern day living!
That said, there's a...

REVIEW OF AUDIOBOOK; FEBRUARY 17, 2018
Narrator: Jonathan Keeble
Not narrated by Moore. I wish it was, but Keeble did a good job, nonetheless. This is just a little over 3 hours and is mainly Moore rambling on about the things old people ramble on and grumble about. I haven't read any other biograp...

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...

It’s always a pleasure to spend time in the company of Roger Moore, who has always seemed one of life's true gentlemen.
This book however was a little too brief, scattergun, and lightweight, to be a rich and satisfying read.
It's clearly written by his associate who has transcribed Roger's musings...

A quick and easy but highly enjoyable read, with some sad and touching moments to balance the funny ones. Very grateful to have seen Sir Roger, my Jimmy Bond, live on stage on his 2015 'An Evening with' tour.

I was one of the legions of Sir Roger's fans who were gutted when we heard of his passing last year. A gentleman to the end. His kindness, humor, and authenticity are greatly missed. How lucky were we that he finished up this book just prior to his passing.
