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.

Flemings effort to wow us with his knowledge of plants and marine life got a bit boring. Never been a fan of short stories. Especially when they jump all over the placePublished 1 month ago by Bill Fenwick
An easy read, short stories and interesting to see how the script writing team took parts from a number of them to add to the movie.Published 2 months ago by Donal

Ian Fleming does it again with a great spy novel. If you want to read a truly complex spy thriller pick with 007s adventure in the past.Published 6 months ago by Thomas Parsons
