Customer Review

on 27 July 2008
A very polished continuation of the James Bond series, which is better than the worst of Fleming's offerings, but does not quite live up to the best. In some ways it is rather too good and lacks the cheesy charm of the real stuff, which is absolutely essential for the full Bond experience. Amis lacks that vague homo-erotic admiration of his hero, that is always apparent when Fleming describes James Bond between action sequences. Amis's aphorisms and humour (there is one very good joke) are rather too good, as well. The girl is rather too psychologically complicated for a Bond girl. But the main villain is very good - the torture scene excellent. Recommended.
