4.0 out of 5 stars great fun - a real pageturner, 26 Mar 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Young Bond: SilverFin: A James Bond Adventure (Paperback)
This book is great fun and can confidently be recommended for young readers (girls or boys) from, perhaps, nine up to twelve (though I, five times that age, enjoyed it a lot). Young James Bond goes to boarding school where he creates a stir, from his point of view not entirely positively (this is Harry Potter territory, and will have the same kind of appeal as that has) and becomes entangled in an adventure involving an eerie Scottish castle, skulduggery therein, the mysterious Loch Silverfin and very unpleasant eels. Some of the book, taken realistically, is impossible to accept, but that does not matter at all. It's well crafted, original, quite spooky in places, has a couple of interesting plot turns and moves at great pace. Bond is befriended by a resourceful East End lad and an equally resourceful girl, so the book covers class divide and is not exclusively male-centred. None of that will matter to young readers, but it's nice to see. Good fun, a good read, and a good present for any young friends or relatives you may have!
