I'm not sure that the books are actually getting better or that I'm getting used to their mediocrity. Perhaps it was just that the last one was so bad. Whatever it is, this one eeked out 3 stars but still pales to the movies. How often can you say that about a book? However I did like that it shows a side of James Bond not seen in the movies or previous books. His typical work week meandering around the office and after it's all over, how sore and tired he is. It wasn't stupidly unrealistic, he didn't go to space, he didn't kill anyone, and he doesn't actually get the girl in the end. Maybe I'm just getting used to Ian Fleming's writing style and away from my movie expectations and learning to enjoy the books, but I don't take back that the first too weren't very good though, because they were.
