Melissa (mrsmelissa) Okay, you have all convinced me...
I'll be reading 'From Russia with Love' followed by Jeffery Deaver's Carte Blanch :)


message 2: by Mike (new)

Mike Wazowski (mikequist1) I have "Live and Let Die" on the queue for July followed by "Moonraker" in August.


message 3: by Melissa (new)

Melissa (mrsmelissa) Based on comments in another thread, I'm avoiding Jeffrey Deaver's version of events, and going with an audio book of 'Colonial Sun' by Kingsley Amis...


message 4: by [deleted user] (new)

I am currently reading 'Casino Royale' and I plan on reading all of the James Bond books in order.


message 5: by Melissa (new)

Melissa (mrsmelissa) Read Colonel Sun and thoroughly enjoyed it :)

Andrew Philip (saga33) | 1 comments From Russia with Love, and then onto You Only Live Twice. Is it blasphemy to also read a Harry Palmer book?

Tommy Surette (tommysurette) | 2 comments I've been a huge film Bond fan for years. After becoming a fan of Craig's version, because of his emotional arc, I just decided to read them all in order. I just read Casino Royale (and I loved it) and I have Live and Let Die on the way, in the mail.

I was planning on picking up all of the Fleming books, Colonial Sun then going ahead to Devil May Care (since it takes place in the original series, trying to replicate Fleming). Then I plan on sticking with the series as William Boyd is supposedly writing the next one in the 60's - so I'll be skipping out on Deaver's reboot.

Are the Garnder, Benson books worth picking up? There's just so many of them, I'm a little overwhelmed just starting out.

Melissa (mrsmelissa) @ Tommy
Check out the discussion about 'Post-Fleming' books. There's some pretty clear opinions about the non-Fleming authors :)

Tommy Surette (tommysurette) | 2 comments Okay, will do. Thanks for the heads up!

Cosmic Dwellings | 6 comments Currently reading 'Colonel Sun' by Robert Markham (Kingsley Amis) which I'm thoroughly enjoying as the first continuation novel. Planning to read 'Devil May Care' by Sebastian Faulks next followed by the Gardner and Benson books as I've never read any of these - Tony.

Mike Wazowski (mikequist1) I just finished Moonraker today. Great book!

Alan Castree (acgalaga) | 3 comments Moonraker was pretty good. It's up there among the ones I enjoyed most.

Just finished Goldfinger myself. Although I did like it, it seems I didn't enjoy it as much as others seemed to.

I'm reading through them chronologically so the next up to bat is the collection of shorts, "For Your Eyes Only."

Shawn Hogan | 1 comments I just finished the authorized biography. It had it's moments. It was an interesting read for anyone who enjoyed the Fleming novels and just wants more Bond. Time to move onto the next set of books. Hopefully license renewed starts things off for Gardner on an up note.

Alan Castree (acgalaga) | 3 comments Rox on man! I love the books and have been trying to read all of them myself. Been working my way through the books in chronological order, but probably only reading one a year... One day I'll make it!

message 19: by Bob (new)

Bob (Bobgeo) | 2 comments In the last year I've read Solo, Colonel Sun and Trigger Mortis. I just ordered the Bonded Fleming collection for lots of choice on what to read next.
