4.0 out of 5 stars Out Of This World, 22 Jun. 2013
This review is from: James Bond and Moonraker (Kindle Edition)
By the late 1970's, the James Bond films had very little to do with the Ian Fleming books they were adapted from. The only element of Fleming's novel that was carried over to the film was the name of the villain - Hugo Drax - everything else, including the name of the Bond girl (Gala Brand in the book, the more suggestive Holly Goodhead in the film) was rejected.

So Christopher Wood's second and last James Bond novelisation, based on his screenplay, is an interesting beast. Like his previous book James Bond: The Spy Who Loved Me it is designed to appeal to readers of the original Fleming stories.

So the Bond of this book is Ian Fleming's Bond - complete with all of his fads (clothes, food, etc). The novelisation sticks quite closely to the screenplay, but there's enough links to the Fleming books to appeal to the literary Bond fan.

It's not such an overt Fleming pastiche as the TSWLM novelisation was, but James Bond and Moonraker is still well worth a read.
