    DNF @ 15 %I may re-try this sometimes, but it totally failed to grab me now. What if James Bond was real and boring? ...

    5 STARS. Simply put, the greatest non-Fleming Bond book ever written. I cannot believe I only just discovered it as a result of reading Raymond Benson’s Bond Bedside Companion. He mentioned this boo...

  • Mark McCallum

    I never knew, or even believed that James Bond was a real character until I read this book. Many of the Ian Flemming novels are largely based on the real life of James Bond, as hard as that is to beli...
