Fast paced but too far fetched,
This review is from: The Facts of Death (James Bond Spy Series) (Mass Market Paperback)
To start with I was enjoying the story with plenty of action and gadgets but as I read on it became a bit tiresome they way Bond just kept getting captured, escapes, captured, escapes again and again. Sometimes it felt more Austin Powers then Ian Fleming as the villians kept having Bond at gun point or tied up and then he unrealistically escapes. The villians were not really believable as they were too mad and incompedent to be taken seriously. If you simply want loads of action, gadgets, villians and their lairs and missiles and you couldn't care about realism then its fine but I prefere more gritty believable action.
