To be fair, the biological warfare angle would have obviously been a lot more novel and compelling in the mid-60's. The expectations and level of understanding would've been a lot different than those of a modern reader. But I feel like an opportunity was wasted here. I'm used to reading from the perspective of the time these things were written in, that's part of the charm; but it seemed like Hamilton just tried to stretch himself another half-step into a James Bond sort of tale, but couldn't commit, and we end up with a sort of interesting countryside scenario (which Hamilton is regularly and rightly praised for in his books) housing just about the most boring James Bond bad-guy location imaginable, which itself houses a villain and henchmen we barely get to know at all.
But by trying to explain all this at length, I'm probably being too negative.Read more ›
