4.0 out of 5 stars Rock 'n' Role, 12 Jan 2010
This review is from: Role of Honour (Coronet Books) (Paperback)
I'm currently reading all of the James Bond novels by John Gardner, and Role of Honour is certainly the best of the first four books (Licence Renewed, For Special Services and Icebreaker are the others). According to Gardner, he was ill when he wrote this and felt he had let himself down - I, on the other hand, happen to this it is a gripping read and I read it within 24 hours. The first hundred eighty or so pages are a bit slow, granted, with Bond being given a tutorial in computers. This being 1984, personal computers are called "micros". Without giving too much away, this novel sees Bond resigning from SIS, getting kidnapped and finding himself in many tight situations. The terrorist training camp in the middle of the book is a notable highlight. Mainly set in Oxfordshire, this is a terrific adventure novel and the late John Gardner wrote it - as ever - brilliantly.
