I think it s important to remember when a new Bond book comes out that this isn t and never will be an Ian Fleming Bond book What Faulks did with his writing as Ian Fleming was a nice gimmick for want of a better phrase but i ve always felt that the continuation of the Bond franchise in book form always works best when authors put their own spin on the writing style If anything it s a little bit like a comic book series writers artists and inkers all come and go but the comic book character lives on is instantly recognisable but is always slightly different in each runFollowing Amis Gardner Christopher Wood Benson Higson Faulks and Deaver Boyd takes on the new story for James Bond and manages to achieve only what few of the authors preceding him have done created a brand new Bond story which is undoubtedly the character that Fleming created but in an original story which is a real page turnerFrom the first chapter right through to the story s conclusion I found this to be a really enjoyable book and a magnificent example of a Bond story Sure 5 stars is completely over the top when comparing it to other books even Boyd s own but in the context of the Bond franchise this is as good a book as you could hope for Bond in Africa really does come across as completely original and filling in on of his backstory from the World War 2 years is a brilliant idea ensuring that his acts in the 1969 African civil warzone come across as realistic considering his history Shoving Bond into the middle of a war zone is a great way of exploring different sides of Bond s character and abilities without reverting back to the evil henchman on an exotic island that Gardner absolutely loved to doOnce the story moves away from Africa it inevitably loses some of that really enjoyable originality that Boyd did so well to tap into However once back in familiar territory Washington DC Boyd keeps the twists coming and the story continues to engage A twist is sown into a double twist into a feasible yet completely surprising third twist It s all managed much feasibly than Deaver s somewhat forced efforts in Carte Blanche and ensures that the action and characters within the story continue to entertainFor Bond literary fans that are willing to conceed that Fleming is never going to return and this is the best that they can hope for they will absolutely enjoy this new Bond adventure I m uncertain as to what Boyd fans or just general thriller fans would think however it can t be less than a 3 star thriller story for a non Bond fanAbsolutely recommended 007 is back and I d welcome another Boyd story continuing on from 1969 Rules of the Knife Fight renegade actio.

free read Solo author William Boyd William Boyd ✓ 3 read & download free read ò eBook or Kindle ePUB ✓ William Boyd N leads him to Washington DC where he discovers a web of intrigue and witnesses fresh horrorsEven if Bond succeeds in exacting his revenge a man with two faces will come to stalk his every waking moment. So James Bond heads to a small war torn African republic Fair enough What s the point in William Boyd writing a Bond novel if he doesn t do the stuff which interests himIt s 1969 and Bond is sent to Zanzarim a fictional country caught up in a drawn out civil war Oil has been discovered and it s up to Bond to bring this conflict to a swift conclusion From there we have double agents triple agents psychotic South African mercenaries mistaken identity drugs torture and some good old fashioned James Bond brutality This is the tired Bond of The Man with the Golden Gun the same version that Sebastian Faulks explored in Devil May Care I really must read Colonel Sun Devil May Care and Solo back to back one uiet fortnight just to see if there are any allusions and jokes which link them all It opens with Bond s 45th birthday and from there it s a late sixties spectacular but one experienced by a middle aged man So Bond is happy with the latest fashions if it means the women don t wear bras but he s a little befuddled by the new cars and sounds and you get the impression of a man who would be happy if the world hadn t changed since 1958 There is though a Hammer Horror scream princess to keep his bed warm and really you can t get 1960s than thatWhether this is Fleming s voice or Fleming s vision is up for debate the Bond of the later books is far angrier and prone to ranting about the modern world and that doesn t really come through these pages while if Fleming was going to write about Bond in an African republic then one can t help thinking that there d be than one unfortunately racist remark which would make the modern reader wince So it s Boyd than Fleming and that s fine as it s a swift paced and entertaining read although with perhaps an unexpectedly abrupt ending Next up is Anthony Horowitz and from what I ve heard of it I m a little disappointed Not that Horowitz isn t a good writer but because he s using some mouldy old flea bitten idea that Fleming himself couldn t be bothered to turn into a book It seems like the stifling of originality Come on Ian Fleming Estate if we re going to hire literary authors then let s really go for it If you want someone who s already a genre specialist then let s get James Ellroy to explore what that Felix Leiter is really up to By why stop at genre specialists Let s see what Hilary Mantel makes of this imperialistic secret agent or discover how expansive James Bond s vocabulary gets when Will Self has a turn
