I was not disappointed, the book gripped and did not let go until the last word.
You can try to look for the bond nods to the past/future or you can enjoy the book for their own sake as either work equally as well.
I may not be this bonds target but to paraphrase the end of all the bond movies bond will be back and I'll be reading it.
James starts out at a new boarding school at the age of 13. He quickly makes a couple good friends, but has his share of bullies. When he goes home for break, James and another boy decide to investigate a missing boy from the area. But the missing boy seems to have disappeared on the land of one James' meanest schoolmates.
While the story is written for youth, it's a fast-paced thriller with fun characters and evil bad guys. A few times during the book, science and technology is explained in detail, so it could be considered almost educational as well.
James hasn't become a spy yet, but this is a fun look at his early years and what helped shape him into the man he will become.
