About the Author

We asked Sol Weinstein, author of the Hebrew Secret Agent Israel Bond (Oy Oy Seven) thrillers to describe his fulsome career in three sentences. They are: 1 1/2 – 3 months for kiting checks … 2 1/2 months for illegally checking kites at a Tokyo kids’ fair … and 1 week for pushing Stepan Novotny, infamous forger, from the top of the Prague National Bank. (The Czech bounced.) In addition to Oy Oy Seven’s capers in Loxfinger, Matzohball, On the Secret Service of His Majesty the Queen, and You Only Live Until You Die, he wrote a highly sentimental set of music and lyrics to “The Curtain Falls”, sung by Kevin Spacey in the biopic Beyond the Sea in his role as Bobby Darin. Sol currently resides in New Zealand, is a member of Temple Sinai in Wellington, and pronounces a favourite ethnic food as “kiegel”, not “kugel”.

For someone like me who's watched the whole James Bond phenomenon from the fringes and thought "Srsly?!" this novel was quite fun, and much more intelligently written than other modern JB spoofs like the Austin Powers movies or Johnny English. I probably would have enjoyed it even more if I were a little more in-the-know about the details of 007's world, but it was still a page-turning, amusing read.

Oy-Oy-7 # 1

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.

Take off on James Bond, 007. An Israeli spy who is a take off and does it all for laughs. Well written, but dated. I lived through the time, but am sure that I still missed some things related to the 60s that I should have gotten. Entertaining short book.

Granted "The Hebrew Hammer" is one of my favourite movies, but when I saw this book, I had to buy it and it did not dissappoint at all. I'm already looking forward to reading more of Weinstein's Bond-inspired books. This one kept me laughing throughout and more than that I cannot ask for!

Okay, it obviously takes place in another time so there are definitely some scenes where the hero is a product of his times and therefore a tad.... well, I just kinda wanta give him a poch in the punim....
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.

It was a quick read but I confess it becomes somewhat boring and the funny parts are sometimes trite. The title got me but the book would be great for a teenager perhaps.

Format: Paperback
Step back into the Cold War with Isreal Bond, spy for the pre-Gaza Isrealis. Bond, a.k.a. Hebrew Secret Agent Oy-Oy-7, is not only licensed to kill, but also to perform a memorial service over the victim, already. Bond is dark, sinewy, and cruelly handsome.. he is a dashing, unstoppable spymaster mixed up in the most insanely sinister plot ever unleashed against the tiny nation of Erets Israel, fabled Land of Milk and Magnesia.

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!
