5.0 out of 5 stars A pleasure and a thorough interest to read, 5 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
All I can say is wow! As a neuroscience student with a lot of interest in psychology, this book was a pleasure to read. All bases are covered in an approachable layout and format to make all topics an interest to read and learn about. The links to learn more information are a superb inclusion and the music and the brain link and chapter has proven to be a popular topic of interest for myself now! A great read for anyone interested in psychology at any level!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad but not th best, 1 Sep 2013

Four short stories from Fleming to end his 007 adventures with and they all highlight his knowledge of the world and abilities as a novelist. However short story novels aren't for me, and3 of the 4 lack the action of precious novels. However, The Living Daylights chapter was a great read and would have made a brilliant novel itself.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Fleming masterpiece, 26 Aug 2013

Quite a lot of Fleming's 007 book have received high praise but YOLT is the best I have read yet! Brilliantly continued on from OHMSS with surprises and action throughout with another superb cliff hanger to finish the novel to make me want to read on. If Fleming's final books are anything like YOLT then I'm in for a treat!

Once again a great 007 novel from Fleming! An interesting and new plot created against the British from Fleming provides suspense, excitement and ends with a cliff hanger which leads nicely onto the next book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Bravo Mr.Fleming!!!, 6 Aug 2013

I am amazed at the literary abilities of Ian Fleming. TSWLM is a book completely different from his others but shows his abilities as a novelist to be of the highest quality! The difference in approach to writing TSWLM is matched with action and adventure of his previous novels to make another outstanding 007 novel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book, 31 July 2013

Back to the longer story from the previous short story book, Thunderball doesn't disappoint! The great part to this book is the secrecy held by Fleming all the way to end which keeps the reader wanting to read on and kept me on the edge of my seat.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the best Fleming novel, 20 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
In comparison to the previous Fleming books I've read, this one does not live up to expectation. The book is essentially 5 short stories with no/little connections in between. This is just a personal view but there was no flow to the book which I didn't particularly enjoy. If you enjoy short stories then this will suit you, as the stories themselves were quite good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just brilliant, 6 July 2013

I'm starting to run out of superlatives for Ian Fleming and his work now. Dr.No is another brilliant book in the series, filled with suspicion and secrecy of the title character and the adventure 007 goes on to unearth the secrets of Dr.No. Onwards to Goldfinger now!

Next on the list of Fleming's 007 novels and another super read! What I find good about this book is the uncertainty and anticipation of what is to come later in the series. I can't wait to find out!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another fine novel from Fleming, 20 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The fourth book of 007 from Ian Fleming once again does not disappoint. If anything, DAF has more action and clever sub-plots that come together well than the three precious novels. Still, all 4 have been worth every penny and I look forward to the next adventure Fleming creates for 007!
