Library JournalHere DeMichael (Armchair Reader: The Amazing Book of History) chronicles every incarnation of Bond, every villain, every girl, every gun, car, and gadget. If it’s been in a Bond movie, you’ll find it in this book! More encyclopedia than FAQ, this title is a compilation of all things Bond from Dr. No to Skyfall. Honoring the 50th anniversary of “everyone’s favorite superspy,” DeMichael assesses characters, actor portrayals, plots, music, and gizmos. Essential for the enthusiast, this title offers detailed information on all the Bond films. And while DeMichael does discuss Ian Fleming’s character development of Bond in a few short pages, it is truly the film franchise that fuels this text. Additional information on Bond spoofs and rumored projects from 1954 to the present are included.
Verdict A complete and appealing volume of information. Bond aficionados, movie buffs, and trivia junkies will enjoy this title and refer to it often. Recommended for enthusiasts.—Rochelle LeMaster, Medina Cty. Dist. Lib., OH
