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.
This is one of the best James Bond books I have read. I enjoyed it. I particularly liked Bond's description of women drivers. Read morePublished 1 month ago by RH - Atlanta
The books are surprisingly good every time I read them! Much better than the screen play every single time! But!Published 1 month ago by Chester Terry
This Bond book has a decent plot and remains moderately entertaining throughout. If you like James Bond you will enjoy this one just as much as the others.Published 3 months ago by Brent Andrew Petre
I found myself comparing the book to the movie and as seems the case the movie version had more action then the book. Read morePublished 3 months ago by Charles
Fleming is a fun read. He's very knowledgeable about espionage, so his plots are plausible (if too far-fetched to be believed).Published 5 months ago by Fred Elgin
I read all of the James Bond books back when I was a teenager in the 1960s and loved them. They were, after all, quite racy for their time. Read morePublished 6 months ago by R E Hoares
