Loxfinger: An Israel Bond Oy-Oy-7 Adventure, Book 1 Audible – Unabridged
Top Customer Reviews
An Israeli secret agent is assigned to protect a famous Jewish philanthropist.
I picked up this book free during an Amazon giveaway. Since I'm not a Bond fan, I figured this would either put me in stitches or put me to sleep. Sadly, it turned out to be the latter. It quite accurately reproduced the feel of the Bond stories, but I didn't find this Lothario any more intriguing than Fleming's original, and quit about a quarter of the way through. Spelling and grammar were acceptable, and the title was both a good spoof and relevant to the plot.
At any rate, it was just super funny and at times kinda weird... would you swim in a pool filled with soup?
I enjoyed this parody quite a bit though.
Before the events of 1967 and beyond, Israel was much easier seen as the "underdog" to people in the United States. Sol Weinstein capitalized on all that and more. His writing style is a great parody of Ian Fleming's, and the ethnic "in-jokes" are pure borscht belt.
So enjoy, already!

It's a funny take-off on Ian Fleming's James Bond series and set in the '60's. The younger folks may not get all the references and inside jokes but they're cleverly over the top.Published on December 13, 2013 by Carl Lakatos
If zero stars were available, that's what I would have given this. Yes, it's tongue-in-cheek. A spoof. But a foolish spoof. One of the few books I've ever just put down. Read morePublished on September 21, 2013 by LittleCrow
