More fun than reading as the narrator does a super job of bringing the characters to life. Quite enjoyable!
Having never read a Bond book before, I was pleasantly surpsired by character development and depth. The pacing was slower than a typical Bond movie, but That allows for insight and developement into James Bond--the man--versus the spy. The ending fit the book and I liked it. Although I did not confirm this, I feel that this must be an early volume in the overall Bond storyline. The movie was quite different and I liked them both for different reasons.
I chose this book because I loved Simon Vance in the Dragon Tattoo series. I missed the ol' chap and wanted to enjoy his company again. Plus there's was the Daniel Craig movie role link between these works;)
While I always enjoy spies and mystery and action, as a woman, I can't resist a love story either. The book's love interest plot line was much deeper than explored in most Bond movies.
I only wish the author wasn't so free with F word. Because of that I can only recommend it cautiously--which is sad bc the story was really, really good. Also loved narrator.
