T cards Bond has just five days to uncover the sinister truth behind a national hero in Ian Fleming’s third 007 adventur. I have to say MOONRAKER didn t have as much action as either of the two previous Bond novels At least at the beginning anyway Sure there was the consummate card game and torture scene but neither hit as hard or as fast as what happened in CASINO ROYALE But this was certainly an entertaining read even though the female characters seemed to wilt at the first sign of trouble or at least gave the distinct impression of the likelihood of such an occurrenceI know it s too much to ask and it s certainly not going to stop me from reading the rest of said novels but just once I d like to see a woman kick some serious butt in this series I d have to say the closest female so far has been Vesper Lynd and even she had her flaws Gala Brand held a certain amount of intrigue and promise but I felt like the afterburner element was missing from her characterBond does show a bit of his human side in this one by not actually getting the girl being just a mere mortal like the rest of us which does make his character a bit interesting even if said girl Gala does notice his ample charm And he in turn notices her abundant curves Yes these novels might be called fluff but like Bond these novels hold a sophisticated air and charm that isn t easily uantifiable and that s what makes them so gosh darn entertainingCross posted at Robert s Reads

    Why do all the men wear moustaches? asked Bond ignoring Drax's uestion Again he had the impression that his uestion had nettled the other manDrax gave one of his short barking laughs My idea he said They're difficult to recognize in those white overalls and with their heads shaved So I told them to all grow moustaches The thing's become uite a fetish Like in the RAF during the war See anything wrong with it?Of

    So far I've given the Bond books I've reviewed 3 stars They walk a sort of thin line They seem to appeal to younger males but have slightly adult content though in todays market they might be thought a bit tamer than they were when published They are enjoyable straight adventure yarns and may deserve a 35 at least one will get a 4
