Our customer reviews
Yes Bond is back and Sebastian Faulks does a truly remarkable job of standing in for the late Ian Fleming. I have read a few of Faulks' novels and he has a unique style which effortlessly transports the reader to each scene in the story. This time however, while he paints a real picture the style is distinctly different. No doubt Fleming was guiding his hands at the keyboard. Darryl Greer Author "The Election"show moreby Darryl Greer
