it was ok
Read in August, 2009

I don't know why I keep reading these James Bond books. They are never as good as the movies. There's no real emotional connection with the characters. The action scenes just don't work when written. The plots are very simple and yet James Bond can't figure them out. The only one of these that has been worth my time is Casino Royale. The rest have been uninspired.

Although, admitedly, the last page of this book is interesting. If the rest had been at that level, it would ahve been a much better book. Unfortunately, it's like Fleming just wasn't trying.
