I have been an avid follower of the James Bond for some time, though I have had issues keeping the faith alive in recent years. This latest installment is true to Fleming's form. The vivid imagery was matched only by the continual excitement that is James Bond's life. Set in a modern day and surrounding modern events this book captures the original author's voice and pace. I thoroughly enjoyed every page and only was saddened when it ended. Take my word this is worth the read, even if your not a Bond fanatic.
