Book Review: 'The Man with the Golden Gun' by Ian Fleming (Reblog)

Many people know a lot about Bond movies. 

What about the Bond books?


  • "Casino Royale" was the first Bond book published in 1953. 


  • After that, Ian Fleming, the creator of James Bond, wrote a book a year. This brilliant writer died of a heart attack in 1964. That's a little over ten years!! 

  • Bond novels were published between the years 1953 – 1966. 

It is not often that I come across a review of one of the Fleming books. Lots of movie reviews but not book reviews. 


Sharing a link to a book review of "The Man with the Golden Gun" from The Friendly Shelf.  It might tempt to want to READ all of Fleming's originals. :)
