Ian Fleming (1908-1964), creator of the world's best-known secret agent, is the author of fourteen James Bond books. Born in London in 1908 and educated at Eton and Sandhurst, he became the Reuters Moscow correspondent in 1929. In the spring of 1939, Fleming went back to Moscow as a special correspondent for the London Times. In June of that same year, he joined Naval Intelligence and served throughout World War II, finally earning the rank of Commander, RNVSR (Sp.). Much of the James Bond material was drawn directly from Fleming's experiences as an intelligence officer. Later, Fleming became a consultant on foreign affairs for the London Sunday Times, by which time he had become far better known as the creator of James Bond.
Like this one much better than the movie. The details sections in the middle add so much color to the story.Published 4 days ago by Chester Terry
Chose 5* because this tale holds up exceptionally well. Bond is a far more interesting character in print than in some of his smirking "pretty boy" screen incarnations. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Glenn B.
I was a little surprised how well the movie followed the book. The book is better than the movie, to me, because I can visualize it better myself. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Matt Thomas
Loved it. Made me appreciate the movie more than before. I took my time in reading this to really enjoy it.Published 6 months ago by SciFi Mama
Reviewing Ian Fleming if really beyond my capabilities. Best spy thrillers going. They all all real page turners without foul language, gratituous violence or excessive sex.Published 7 months ago by David Allen Holmes
