5.0 out of 5 stars Which Benson Bond Book Should I Read First?, 2 Jun. 2001
This review is from: Zero Minus Ten (James Bond 007) (Paperback)
ZERO MINUS TEN is Benson's first Bond novel and it's quite good. I particularly enjoyed the lengthy description of the Mahjong game, Bond's ordeal in the Australian outback, and that fact that his villain is kind of a drunk. Having read and re-read all the Fleming and Gardner Bond books, and I can tell you Benson really knows his Bond! But if you're looking to just sample a Benson/Bond, I recommend you leap right to his latest book, NEVER DREAM OF DYING, which is his best so far. Then, if you get hooked, read the first two books of his "Union Trilogy," HIGH TIME TO KILL and DOUBLESHOT which are both excellent (NDOD is the concluding chapter of that trilogy, but it's not critical to read the books in order -- unless you want to). Then come back and read ZERO MINUS TEN and THE FACTS OF DEATH which are equally good. Benson has also written novelizations of two Bond films, TOMORROW NEVER DIES and THE WORLD IS NOT ENOUGH, but I think his original work is far superior. Enjoy!
