If you read and enjoyed Ian Fleming's original 1959 "Moonraker" Bond novel and watched Albert R. Broccoli's 1979 Film but were left wondering why the original was so different, well here's the answer....
Fleming's original novel was re-written by Christopher Wood to bring it twenty years on into the late 1970's (the age of the Boeing 747, NASA's Space Shuttle and clever, emancipated and empowered women), and his book, "James Bond and Moonraker", is the screen-play of the Broccoli film written down as a very readable novel. It pays homage to Fleming's original and is actually great fun as well as being surprisingly descriptive and exciting
His plot differs to Fleming's original plot in that a space shuttle is stolen en-route to London so that M sends Bond (Roger Moore) out to apologise to the shuttle creator, billionaire Hugo Drax (Michael Lonsdale).
As he visits Drax's plush historic estate several attempts are made on Bond's life and he subsequently meets Dr. Holly Goodhead (Lois Chiles) the NASA Shuttle scientist. Together they investigate the evil Drax who is plotting to destroy the world's population so that he can repopulate the planet in his image (in true 1970's genetics-mutation-style!)
Predictably, the chase takes Bond all over the world - London, California, Brazil, the Amazon Jungle and, finally, to Drax's huge space-metroplois over the Earth (in a Shuttle and wearing the Space-Suit featured on the cover of the book).
Not to be outdone, the evil Drax, hires an old adversary of Bond to take care of this inconvenience - the steel-toothed killer - Jaws (Richard Kiel).
All in all, a very clever adaptation of Fleming's Moonraker by Christopher Wood and is recommended reading if only to complete your Bond collection.
