I'm not sure what to make of this. It's enjoyable for the most part and a relatively quick read. However, there are places that seem long-winded and boring. It's very descriptive. How does it compare to the film? It's fairly close, but there are several differences (I'm not going to go into them here). Overall, an enjoyable book, just maybe not my cup of tea.

A sharp, really quite brilliant and even thoughtful masterpiece of a genre that Fleming elevated to a new stature. A very good read indeed, that has passed the test of time with top marks, especially because of its elegant, classy, style that is such a trademark of well-educated British authors in general and Ian Fleming in particular. An excellent book to be put into the hands of young and old.

I liked this book. The last few chapters had some acronyms I didn't understand, but other than that, it was enjoyable. A bit different than the movie.
