I found this to be an enjoyable beach read. A lot of Bond purists turn up their noses at Moonraker but I have always enjoyed it, with one major caveat, the inclusion of Jaws, which was a terrible mistake. He should have never returned for a second outing as a Bond villain. He is popular with audiences,but the character is ridiculous.In this novelization, there is mercifully less of Jaws. Hugo Drax is a marvelous villain. He is given some wonderful lines: "See to Mr Bond. Make sure some harm comes to him." and "You defy all my attempts to plan an amusing death for you, Mr Bond." All in all, not bad.
