A not-bad novelisation,
This review is from: Tomorrow Never Dies (James Bond 007) (Paperback)
As Raymond Benson's first Bond movie novelisation this is an entertaining, but workmanlike, read. This is one of the few movie books that does not simply ape the movie, as it is based on a version of the script that was not used, and contains many interesing sequences and sub plots that never made it to the screen. The area where the book fails is mainly in the action sequences, which are too vaguely described and never really come together. This is made up for somewhat in the excellent dialogue and a genuine effort on the part of the author to flesh out the characters.
On the whole, I would say this book is inferior to the novels of GoldenEye and The World is not Enough, but would reccomend it over the book of Die Another Day.
