British Secret Service agent James Bond, a.k.a. 007, is called into action when a new threat, the terrorist group SPECTRE, hijacks a pair of nuclear bombs and tries to use them to hold the world ransom. Bond has to team up with an old friend, CIA agent Felix Leiter, to stop them. James Bond is one of the most iconic characters in 20th-century literature. In addition to the 12 novels and 9 short stories written by Ian Fleming, there have been over 40 novels and short stories written about the spy by other authors, and 26 films produced, starring actors such as Sean Connery and Daniel Craig as 007.

Blofeld is a very smart man! As was Fleming. Quite prescient.

I just enjoy the hell out of these despite all the horrible problems for a modern audience.

#QuotsySept18 Day 1: Not sure how I feel about James Bond‘s assessment of women‘s supposedly #Meticulous driving skills.

QuietlyLaura But then why does Bond wreck so many cars? I‘m a woman and an excellent driver. I take pride in my driving skills. 😎 4y

But don‘t be fooled...this little angel had a reign of terror in the last 24 hours:
Lucius = 3
vacuum cleaner, air-con unit and motorcycle helmet = 0

I really don‘t like book James Bond!!!! I love movie James Bond, but book 007 not so much! Book James Bond is an ass and in the famous words of Sam Axe: “You know spies, a bunch of bitchy little girls.” And that is so book Bond... 😒😒😒

The phrase Mr #kisskissbangbang was first used by an Italian journalist to describe James Bond. John Barry then used it as a song title to be the ‘Thunderball‘ theme. Both Shirley Bassey and Dionne Warwick recorded #kisskissbangbang but last minute they switched to ‘Thunderball‘ by Tom Jones.
This gorgeous coffee table book was a Birthday gift last yr and the 1961 Pan paperback was my Dads, that I rescued from a donation box!

Robothugs well done!! 😁👏🏻 5y

KarenUK @Cinfhen @Robothugs I am full of utterly useless James Bond trivia! I actually wrote my final written work at Art school (aged 21) on Bond girls! ...‘Feminist Icon or Brainless Bimbos?‘ 😂 5y

Taking a short break from all the reading. Watching Ian Fleming documentary. This makes me want to read James Bond books. His life was so interesting and the books sound so good! #24in48

ReadingEnvy I liked the documentary! Maybe more than James Bond books. But they are fun in audio. 6y
Martta @ReadingEnvy I haven't read any of the Bond books yet even though I have couple of them waiting on my TBR list. Hopefully get to do that soon! I just love documentaries about the lives of writers! ❤ I've seen documentaries atleast about Astrid Lindgren, Enid Blyton, J. K. Rowling, Sofi Oksanen and Mary Shelley. I'm always looking for more. 6y

I listened to the audiobook with Jason Isaacs narrating. The first half bored me with all the technical bits so glad the second half was better.

Decided to watch Thunderball tonight, which is one of just three Ian Fleming 007 books I haven't read. I started it, but found it moved too slow. Plus I knew it was the rare Bond book that is actually similar to the film as it was based on the screenplay and not the other way around. Maybe someday I'll read it, just because I'm a completist. For now, I have the movie.
