The book opens with a chapter where Bond looks back on the first time where he as a young soldier in the aftermath of the invasion in Normandy 1944for the first time faces death And is actually fine Tunnel Through Time reading and shows a promise for the bookThen 007 gets shipped of the Africa where he is supposed to end a civil war by taking out the leader of one of the parties involved It all goes of course horrible wrong and Bond ends up being terrible hurt The 2nd part of the book is Bond going solo on a one man mission to avenge his wounds and the awefull behaviour of a mercenary and his bossI Game of Bimbofication, Part 3 really wanted to like this book due to some of the extreme critism I did Game of Bimbofication, Part 2 read on some Bondfora and Sermons Preached Upon Several Occasions, Vol. 1 of 5 re adress the attitude that Fleming never did write as bad as Boyd did And perhaps it would be honest to admit that while Boyd is a good writer he has shown with this novel that he lacks the writing skills to write a convincing 007 novelKnowing that mr Boyds The Fatima Century roots were in Africa I expected some of the brutality that would Leah Starrs Revenge reign there in a civil conflict in an oil Pieces 8 (Pieces, rich country We get a Time Flies and Other Short Plays rather boring travel through an African country in conflict Having Fall (VIP Book 3) (English Edition) read the writings of the French novelist G Drawing Dead (Faolan OConnor Book 1) rard de Villiers I always admired his skill of writing about the geopolitical authenticity of conflicted and exotic places And the post colonial Africa would be the place to show us some insight And while his stories of a Austrian prince hired by the CIA does often showcase ond dimensional characters and gratious sexscenes they offer a lot of excitement as well With Boyds vision of Africa we get some polished in my view political correct version of the place It never gets very authentic or even exciting and even the plot does not offer any clarityThe villain is some former Rhodesian mercenary that has some nasty way of hanging dead soldiers on tree branches like dead fish ANd of course he has his facial handicap So far Boyd ticks all the Fleming boxes but he never gives the man any feeling of threathening menace Jakobus Breed feels like a man who enjoys his sadist kicks but is a mer man that can be easily taken out And Bond does eventually do just that The big financier is a one dimensional character that comes nowhere to his Trails & Tales of Yosemite & the Central Sierra rightThe Bond women are fine in this novel but fail to impress at any level and nowhere you feel that Bond has any attachment with them Even if the voyeuristic episode concerning one of them is easily the most exciting part written in the bookThis book is about Bond doing a job in post colonial Africa where the big cooperations after all those declarations of independencies were scrambling like mad to get some lucreative contracts And James Bond goes into that situation without any idea of view it is only in the aftermath you get an opinion on that matter in a talk between Leiter Bond For me Bond never walked so shallow into any affairmission written by Fleming Amis Gardner Benson Faulks or Deaver And in the aftermath it felt out of place and as some conservative fans said that it was amazing that the British paper the Guardian had a positive Chinas Son review so something must be wrong The only uestions Bond asked himself were not so much about the situation he was placed in and what his purpose might be but about the attractiveness of his female companions And untill the end of the book where Leiter pops us I kind of missed the male bonding Bond seems to have with male characters these last Bondbooks written and are already called the celebrity trilogy are interested in placing women in important Welcome to the Desert of the Real roles based upon a certain euality WHich is something that would be frowned upon by most in 1969 where this tale does plays and it annoyed me for some time in thsi bookWilliam Boyd commented on Fleming that he has written some sexist and Dead End Bluff racist aspects in his books Which is a fair thing to say if one is fameliar with Flemings books But perhaps Boyd should have used some edgier approuch to actually spice up this 007 story It falls kind of flat and is sometimes a boring story that makes the King Noah Blindness and the Vision of Seers reader frustrated with the lack of action Instead we get another foodpornish episode which Boyd writes very well but are to much put in the novel instead of some straitgh action with some sadistic overtonesAs Bondnovel a failure for me although it is uite an easy Factory of Death rard de Villiers service to write a perhaps less PC version of 007 And the man has the skills and knowledge to make it fun and Thirteen Plus One (The Winnie Years, realAnd don t get me started on the Rapid Math Without A Calculator recipe for Bonds saladdressing foodporn taken one step too farThis novel has 007 enjoying the good things in live and while he does so the adventure passes by and he is a spectator than a participant He is kind like an elderly English gentleman that sits around waiting which might be possible the idea Boyd wanted to give in this post colonial Africa

    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
