    M calls this case a "soft option". He sends Bond to Jamaica to investigate the disappearance of the head of the Kingston station. Jamaica is luxurious, and the seductive Honey Rider is beautiful and willing, but they are both part of the empire of Dr. No.

    Doug says: "A classic James Bond thriller"
    "One of the better Bond books."

    If you could sum up Dr. No in three words, what would they be?

    Great villain/setting.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Dr. No?

    Bond is closer to death in this book than any other. A couple of old characters from Live and Let Die return for this adventure.


    Which character – as performed by Simon Vance – was your favorite?

    Definitely Bond.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Hard to put this one down.


    Any additional comments?

    I recommend all of the bond books, especially read by Simon Vance. This is certainly one of the best ones.

    When James Bond rescues a beautiful, reckless girl from self-destruction, he finds himself with a lead on one of the most dangerous men in the world: Ernst Stavro Blofeld, the head of SPECTRE. Blofeld is conducting research that could threaten the safety of the world. To thwart this evil genius, Bond must infiltrate Blofeld's base of operations while avoiding the agents of SPECTRE.

    Adam Shields says: "Ernst Bloefeld (of SPECTRE) is back"
    "Fun book!"

    The first time Bond is in a snowy surrounding, still hunting Dr. Blofelt. I love and would recommend all of the Bond novels....but I'd say this is one of the better ones. In a small way, this book ties into Octopussy as well.
