Cathal Reynolds This is a very subjective question, but I personally loved it, and you might as well. Particularly if you like middle-grade series such as the Alex Rider series by Anthony Horowitz. If you are a die-hard fan of the original Ian Fleming James Bond series, however, you may enjoy this less. I hear many people saying that it isn't true to Fleming's style, but I believe that that is because Higson's writing style is very different from Fleming's. I myself did not enjoy Fleming's books that much, and preferred to stick to the movie adaptations, whether they do it justice or not.
