Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
This collection of short stories complements the For Your Eyes Only collection and gives true fans a very deep insight into the character of Bond. For non fans they are a great collection of stories and well worth a listen.
Forget the gadgets and commercial nature of the films, here Bond is a normal man who suffers from the same moral dilemmas as the rest of the world. The stories are very politically incorrect in places, which was acceptable back in the day.
For fans of the movies they will initially fail to see the connection between the films and the stories of the same name. However as the stories progress the characters and plots from the movies are revealed tangled up within several of the stories.
Well worth it for fans and novices alike.
