and that criticism straight out of the mouth of the bond girl in this installment is probably one of my favourite lines in the series so far Whoever said they were all shallow In fact, Domino is another kick ass leading lady, who first stumps Bond with her driving skills yeah, between Domino, Ms Galore, and Tilly Masterton, Bond may have a thing for women drivers , calls him out on bullshit, engages with him on her own terms, and finally saves his hide.
Of course, Bond is still Bond, and the sexist, chauvinist comments are there in abundance throughout the book, but one wouldn t set out to read a Bond novel without a bucket of salt at hand, and this one is nowhere near as horrible as other Bond novels However, the story i The Girl Looked Him Up And Down He Had Dark, Rather Cruel Good Looks And Very Clear, Blue Grey Eyes He Was Wearing A Very Dark Blue Lightweight Single Breasted Suit Over A Cream Silk Shirt And A Black Knitted Silk Tie Despite The Heat, He Looked Cool And Clean And Who Might You Be She Asked Sharply My Name S Bond, James Bond When A Stranger Arrives In The Bahamas, The Locals Barely Turn Their Heads, Seeing Another Ex Pat With Money To Burn At The Casino Tables But James Bond Has Than Money On His Mind He S Got Less Than A Week To Find Two Stolen Atom Bombs Hidden Among The Coral Reefs While Acting The Playboy, Bond Meets Domino, Sultry Plaything Of Secretive Treasure Hunter Emilio Largo In Getting Close To This Gorgeous Italian Girl, Bond Hopes To Learn About Largo S Hidden Operation The best part about any of the original James Bond novels is the fact that there is no Q other than being mentioned peripherally, Q Branch and all that That s to say, the novels aren t as gimmicky as the films This is important, since it elevates the story above the zany pop culture status of the films There is at least some gravitas here, which is as it should be in a spy thriller.
And yet, the novels are every bit as entertaining as the films Thunderball was recommended to me by my wife In fact, it was part of our annual must read agreement I believe it is her favourite, just edging out Live and Let Die, which I also read on her recommendation previously Thunderball does contain all the ingredients we have come to expect exotic location check, undersea adventuring check, beauti Thunderball is the ninth book in Ian Fleming s James Bond series, and the eight novel, after a seriously good collection of short stories This book now bears the authorship of Fleming on most editions, but it was really the collaboration of several people, and a legal agreement at one time insisted that Kevin McClory and Jack Whittingham be given co author status It is really the novelization of an unfilmed screenplay which over borrows scenes from and ideas from previous novels.
So we have reason to be suspicious this will stink, but I found it pretty readable, with a familiar cartoonish pulpy plot Ernst Blofeld, leader of the terrorist organization SPECTRE Dr Evil in Austin Powers , has hijacked an American plane loaded with atomic weapons Unless h Rating 4 of fiveI am viewing the Bond films on Prime 20 are available on Prime for free viewing until 1 Sept This entry in the book series is a little odd, because the story and the book were the subjects of prolonged litigation among the writer of the story, the author of the book, and the producers of the film As a result, this film was made again in 1983 by the title Never Say Never Again, Sean Connery s swansong as Bond That was a better film.
This one also has a crap theme song sung by Tom Jones I remembered it not at all from the first time I saw the movie in a theater, probably 1966 or 1967 I was much impressed then by the underwater fight sequences Now they just make me claustrophobic.
So nuclear bombs stolen by Blofeld, pretty girl tries to kill Bond, Blofeld s second in command screws up and hires the only white men in the Bahamas as henchrats and all of them screw up Thundball the Bond book so good it was made into two movies, both of which starred Sean Connery Obviously the 1965 film of the same title and 1983 s Never Say Never Again How that happened is a fascinating story involving copyright Standard disclaimer this book contains sexism, racism, colonialism and adult language Onto the story Bond has been Bonding it up so M decides to send him to a health farm called Scrublands whilst there he encounters a strange man named Count Lippi who is a tong member This seemingly useless knowledge nearly gets Bond killed When he returns to London and improved health he is called into the office only to learn that a sinister organization has stolen two 2 atomic bombs and are demanding a ran Thunderball trailer.
Book 9, movie 4, we re moving right along High hopes for this one because, according to my sources, the movie was the most successful of the Bond franchise at that point People aren t stupid, right O.
garsh It was really boring, guys Really boring The preview shows all the exciting parts from the movie, including my favorite in which Bond smacks someone with a phone and then wraps it around his neck Yeah, you tell im, Bond Kick his ass Um.
The book is surprisingly just as boring If I m going to read a Bond book, I expect Bond to be in it, but there s this whole sequence that doesn t involve him and it s technical not in a good way and quite the snooze fest.
But then this leads me to question myself Why do I care if Bond is in a sequence or not He s a dick I ve learned from this book that women are horrible driver
Now this is a great Bond story First published in 1961, this was the 9th Bond novel for Ian Fleming and is a rip roaring good time for fans.
This has it all Criminal villain mastermind While Fleming has come up with several great villains before, we are finally introduced to THE criminal, Blofeld, the Number 1 of SPECTRE and who was without a doubt the template for Austin Powers parody Dr Evil especially Donald Pleasance s portrayal of him in You Only Live Twice We actually get a villain double billing as SPECTRE agent Largo is the central antagonist and we meet Blofeld as the arch enemy behind the scenes.
Plot to destroy the world Not just a spy v spy, SPECTRE is rolling the dice on a big and dastardly plan and its up to our hero to save the day.
Action Lots Some of the earlier Bond novels were oddly cerebral and even romantic, Thunderball is all about the fight sce A voice said quietly, close up against his ear, You will not meddle again, my friend Then there was nothing but the great whine and groan of the machine and the bite of the straps that were tearing his body in half Bond began to scream, weakly, while the sweat poured from him and dripped off the leather cushions to the floor.
Then suddenly there was blackness.
This is a bit different from the previous 8 Bond novels A bit serious SPECTRE gets hold of an atomic bomb and threatens to detonate it in a major city if he doesn t receive 100,000,000.
WHAT I DIDN T LIKE 1 Bond calling women bitch all the time It doesn t matter whether he likes them or not He just refers to women as bitches quite frequently It s disturbing, and I can t really see any rhyme or reason behind it Term of endearment Verbal tic I wish he d stop doing it, it takes away a lot of my enjoyment of these novels.
