i just finished the audiobook MoonRaker by Ian Fleming (cant find the book in any book store i have looked in) it was a great book. Bond is back in the 3rd book in the series, the basic plot is, the Moonraker is being built by a man by the name of Sir Hugo Drax he put up the money to build the Moonraker but hes a bit of a bad egg. He enjoys card games and fast cars and also he enjoys being very wealthy enjoys it very much. Sir Hugo Drax meets Bond over a card game and Bond finds Drax isn't the "good guy" others think he is, after a very thrilling game of bridge the story picks up a bit. Something has happened to someone working on the security team of the MoonRaker project. Enter Bond, James Bond. He goes to the sight of the MoonRaker and finds that things are a bit of a miss. The head of security has been killed and Bond must find out what happened, also why on earth do all the workers who are building the MoonRaker have odd Mustache Styles and shaved heads? The answer may solve all the questions he has. Man M (Bonds supervisor) has really gotten him in to a very odd case. Does it have something to do with the way Sir Hugo plays cards? Luckley Bond has the help of a member of MI5, but will that be enough? The story picks up considerably and leads to a bit of a nail bitter near the end leading to a very thrilling ending. Over all this book was wonderfully written and very detailed. I love a book i can read or listen to and actually see the story in my head. I would love to actually Read the books instead of hearing them but i do enjoy listing to audiobooks very much also, so it will do for now.
Thank you for reading my Review of MoonRaker By Ian Fleming ...more
this book is wonderfull i love Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson they are what true mysterys are about. Sherlock is a peculiar fellow he sees the smallesthis book is wonderfull i love Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson they are what true mysterys are about. Sherlock is a peculiar fellow he sees the smallest details in every case he takes on. He dosent work for scotland yard he is a consulting private detective people come to him and he helps them always beter then the police because the police have to go off facts and evidence Mr. Holmes goes off his instinct and like i said the smallest details maby it would be the ash of a pipe or the tobacco smell in a room or even the way a man looks toward a room or at a book shelf hes verry smart and most of the time to cocky for his own good witch is why he dosent really have many friends . Dr. Watson is his roomate and comes with him to document the crimes as the storys progress he (Dr. Watson) forams a friend ship with Holmes and also begins to write of the cases Holmes have solved and in doing so holmes becomes a bit of a celebrity . this like all of the Sherlock Holmes books is a wonderfull book for the mystery buff and good for young adults because there is not the kind of content that would be bad for older children if full of wonderfull storys i love Sherlock Holmes and enjoy reading them over and over again
I just finished reading Dracula by Bram Stoker it was a very good book i have always waned to read it because everyone has seen some small clip in a I just finished reading Dracula by Bram Stoker it was a very good book i have always waned to read it because everyone has seen some small clip in a movie or cartoon . But untill you read the book you cant understand them clips... any way ...
The book took a little bit to get used to considering your reading journal entrys thru most of the book and letters from one to another the book was set up diferentaly then most books but thats what makes it different then most books. the book is your basic Original Vampire book ...vampire comes in at night as a bat sucks your blood turns you in to a vampire they use garlic cause vampires hate garlic they say to kill a vampire you got to use a wooden stake the vampire can turn in to a bat(also a wolf,mist,and things like that) All the things you learn about when your a kid. Vampires are bad not good shiny or good or can fight crime (if some do..not sure lol) Eather way they are bad and this is the reason vampires are such a big part of history/pop and modern culture they are almost like aliens from outter space at the end of the day you sit back and say "i wonder if they (vampires/aliens/monsters/wearwolfs) are real?" then you go to bed thiking about it and maby check your closet and under bed one more time .
Over all the book was good i did like it. It was a little bit slow and written so long ago some people may not be used to the words that were used here and there. I enjoyed this book very much and enjoy vampire books and im glad i could read this and and like it more then i thought i would so i give this book 5 starts ...
thank you for reading my review i hope it helps. :-)...more
I have read this book and i loved it. I dont usualy read short storys so to speak, these range from short to kind of long i enjoyed it very much likeI have read this book and i loved it. I dont usualy read short storys so to speak, these range from short to kind of long i enjoyed it very much like all stoys in books like this you may like some more then others. Witch is very true. Sherlock Holmes is a very complacated man. He drinks,smokes, fights, and on ocation enjoys a bit of herion. His mind and eyes are very sharp, for the fact that he can see even the smallest detail or clue. witch usualy helps him solve the crimes he works so hard to solve. Ofcorse with the help of hes roomate and friend Dr. Watson. ...more
