This fantastic novel is the direct continuation of You Only Live Twice, in which Bond loses his memory. The story’s beginning is action-packed, with James Bond attempting to kill his boss, M, after having disappeared and being declared dead. He is given treatment to wear off the brainwashing and his neurologist, sir James Molony, tells M to send him on another mission: to kill Francisco Scaramanga, ‘the man with the golden gun.’

Something I like a lot about Fleming’s style is his way of ending chapters. Always, at the end of chapters, you are given some revelation, or something unforeseen happens. This is demonstrated quite a lot in this novel, since there are interesting revelations as pages keep turning.

The Man with the Golden Gun has become one of my favorite books, along with Casino Royale, which is the first James Bond novel.
