Right. Now pay attention, 007. I doubt anybody can write a Bond

I doubt anybody can write a Bond book as good as Fleming did, and to be fair, I don’t get the impression that anyone is trying to. These books, like the movies, reflect a different Bond for whichever decade in which they appear. These were written during the Brosnan era and reflect those sensibilities.
All three of these stories, and the two bonus shorts, are solid and fun. Why they don’t make movies based on the modern books I don’t really understand. I appreciate the die hard adherence to Fleming ideas, but there is some good stuff here that we’ll never see on the screen. But as least it’s somewhere. The films of James Bond have eclipsed the literary origins to some extent, but I’m pleased to see them continue.
Don’t miss this author’s previous Omnibus: The Union Trilogy.
