    Diamonds are Forever

    James Bond is back as he uncovers a diamond smuggling ring. It is a little different from the movie which here is a good pace as you get more indepth with the characters. It is an enjoyable read.

    Fabulous Fun

    I've got to say that I'm pretty jealous of Mr. Bond. Tiffany Case is quite a gal. Fleming's writing, as usual, is tight and precise and wonderfully descriptive. You won't want to put it down.

    Completely different from the movie...in a good way

    So far, I've read 7 of the 14 James Bond novels and Diamonds Are Forever is the most interesting and diverse of the books. The movie is nothing like the book. Other than most of the characters and the location being in Vegas, the movie goes off on its own plot line. Blofeld is not in this book and hasn't even been introduced in the series at this point. There is also no satellite of diamonds that shoots a laser beam. The book is solely about diamond smuggling and gang wars in the US. For writing in the time period that he did, Ian Fleming uses a very diverse group of characters, especially in this book. There are many different gangs represented in this story from many different backgrounds. Also, two of the main villians are refered to as being homosexual. A very bold way to write for the 1950s. If you want to experience the way James Bond was meant to be, I strongly recommend Diamonds Are Forever.

    Looking for excitment

    Out of the first 4 Bond Diamonds are Forever is by far the most action packed! Sure the start is slow and a little boring, but before you get sick of the book you get pulled right back in. The book is filled with loads of action so far only seen in the movies

    Diamonds are Forever-The review

    Bond is back! In the story, Bond must follow the trail of stolen diamonds which lead to the long time archenemy:Ernst Starvo Blofeld. With the famous license to kill, Blofeld is finally killed. With him dead, Bond faces new enemies in later books written by Ian Fleming. The plot's good. A lot of detours. A good story.
