Benson adds interesting background narrative padding out necessary scenes but alas not over developing the familiar characters.
By adding the missing, opening & important scene he explains why M sends 007 to Bilbao to collect King's money. Strangely it is not until towards the end (?) when he looks into the Renard & Elektra kidnap relationship and explains why the terrorist is so devoted to her. Actor Robert Carlyle who played Renard stated in an interview that he made the character's nationality Bosnian but here he is Russian. Meanwhile Zukovsky's assistant 'The Bull' due to his gold teeth has become a 'Jaws' baddie with his height increased to 7 feet !
The book also explains that Q Branch sent James his old DB5 as back-up to the disposable Z8 for his travels around the Caspian Sea and this helps locate him ( with satellite tracking ) for the final love scene in Istanbul which isn't made too clear in the movie. A light & enjoyable read which recreates the movie's success and is worth a visit to the library or book shop.
Slightly puzzled by the 7 blank pages between chapters to help reach the magical 200 - paperback version.

Benson has done such a wonderful job in writing from screenplays. I do that as well, and it is not easy. Read morePublished on 29 Mar. 2000
A fan of the film, I decided to read the book, also, and I wasn't disappointed. The book goes into far more detail than the film, and makes it much more of a thriller. Brilliant.Published on 27 Feb. 2000
