"Not at all like the movie."

Purchased on Mighty Ape

I’ve set myself the goal to read all the Bond books this year. These editions are nicely bound (for a paperback) and are good value for money. In some cases the only similarity with the movie is the title and some of the character names. In some cases that could be limited to Bond himself. If you are a Bond fan but have never read the books I’d strongly suggest you do. Easy reading and gives a Bond fan an insight to the real 'Bond’ and how he really gets on with characters such as M.

Description

The Man with the Golden Gun, Paco Scaramanga, is one of the deadliest hit men in the world and the British Secret Service want him eliminated. A brainwashed James Bond tried, and failed, to kill his boss, M. It's time for him to prove he can be trusted again. Bond finds his man in the sweltering heat of Jamaica. His plan is to infiltrate Scaramanga's gang of criminals to get close to the man himself. But if he fails, Bond will be the next target for the golden gun.

Author Biography

Ian Lancaster Fleming was born in London in 1908. His first job was at Reuters news agency after which he worked briefly as a stockbroker before working in Naval Intelligence during the Second World War. His first novel, Casino Royale, was published in 1953 and was an instant success. Fleming went on to write twelve other Bond books as well as two works of non-fiction and the children's classic Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. The Bond books have sold over sixty million copies and earned praise from figures such as Raymond Chandler who called Fleming 'the most forceful and driving writer of thrillers in England' and President Kennedy who named From Russia with Love as one of his favourite books. The books inspired a hugely successful series of film adaptations which began in 1961 with the release of Dr No, starring Sean Connery as 007. Fleming was married to Anne Rothermere with whom he had a son, Caspar. He died in 1964.
