First off, the box. It's a very nice continuous design and collects every Ian Fleming story in one set. Each book fits the overall design but is given it's own personal image. The stories themselves are in a nice font and size that makes it easy to read.
Secondly, the delivery. I got a fantastic deal on this collection, and it was delivered almost a week earlier than estimated. It came in perfect condition and still wrapped.
Overall was very impressed.

This book set was delivered fast and in perfect condition. The james bond books are an amazing read. For this price it would be rude not to.

Ok so not read them yet! But this review is about the package. Delivered well boxed and padded arrived in perfect condition. Thanks the book people. The covers of the books are of a nice retro design. The box design is a bit plain and disappointing but is of sturdy quality. Just got to read them now!

More accurately, my uncle loved it. This was a gift for his 50th birthday, he is a big Bond fan like I am, so this made 100% sense. Ny uncle was thrilled and read a few on his recent holiday to Cornwall. Superb value.

Though some of opinions/language seem amusingly very dated, it was interesting to read about Bond and get a very different picture from the too-smooth actors who have played him, to see a lack of gadgets and more human/vulnerable side and not so pleasant side to his character. Also interested to see when Quantum of Solace was picked for Bond film title it was panned a bit but the title is one of the short story titles in Fleming's original books - one featuring Bond without any spies/shootings/chases or any of the things associated with Bond at all. And he doesn't always get the girl!

Really happy with this book set. The haughty attitude of Fleming's Bond towards other nationalities, ethnicities and women may be offensive to some but the stories are consummately well written and Fleming does not require me to act as apologist for reflecting the attitudes of his time. I much prefer the (relative) realism of these books to the fantastical scripts of the films. The retailer delivered the set promptly and well packaged to protect it from damage. Bond at his best!

I bought this set having been brought up on the movies, but never being made aware they were based on books. Now having just finished them I can honestly say they are amazing and surpass the films (which is saying something saying as most of the films are well made). I highly recommend this to anyone who loves the films and anyone who loves good old fashioned thrillers.

Ridiculously impressed with these. Tried to find this book set a year ago but couldn't find anything for less than the RRP so couldn't believe my luck with these! Ordered as a gift, expecting them to be second hand with signs of use, but they were brand new, still in the plastic packaging. Amazing value for money, fast delivery - couldn't be happier.

Ordered and arrived 2 days later, exactly as advertised and fantastic value. Having read a few of the James Bond books I was put off buying more as they tend to be £6 or £7 pounds each and are quite short.

However at £14,99 + postage these come in at about £1,50 each which is great value and definitely the way to get the full set!

Arrived quickly, the only big disappointment was that they arrived loose in a cardboard box - whereas the picture depicts them all together in a presentation box. Fine if they were for me, but as this was a Birthday present it was not so nice to hand them over loose and explaining that they should have come in a presentation box.
