This was a lot of fun. I am a sucker for the Bond films (seen all but 2 so far), and I like reading about them at least as much.

This is all about the movies, and many of the things and events that swirled around them, as well as their reception by critics and fans around the world.

Factoid that blew my mind: Octopussy was written (at least in part) by George MacDonald Fraser, of "Flashman" fame.

FWIW, the author tried hard not to favor one actor over another, but his "original" or sentimental favorite seemed to be Moore. I'm torn between the last 3, myself.
