Read from May 13 to 20, 2013 — I own a copy, read count: 2

Another tried and true Bond adventure. This was the first Bond movie I saw back when I was a youngster. I remember walking home afterwards and waiting for OddJob's metal hat to come flying out of the woods at me.. Well-crafted and paced story; Fleming wastes no time getting into the adventure and keeps it moving right along. Great villain in Goldfinger and his henchman and interesting scheme..

Lynne King Bill, Of course I've seen all the films. I don't know why, but I'e never been inclined to read Ian Flemings books. Seeing your three star rating, I'll continue with the same thoughts.

Goldfinger really was a great villain though. I'm always partial to those...And OddJob'e metal hat...Scarey.
