    Solo PDF EPUB ´ Hardcover solo ebok, Solo PDFHmmIt's not that I didn't like this book it's well plotted and the writing is perfectly competent it's that it turns out I really don't like James BondThis came as something of a shock I've always enjoyed the films especially Skyfall starring the immensely talented Daniel Craig Bond is glamorous witty strong loyal balletically violent looks great in a tux everything I could want in an action hero The thing is though is that with a movie you're carried along by the spectacle You are invited to enjoy and then a couple of hours later to basically forget all about it Action flicks don't invite you to reflect on the psychological realities of a life of sustained violence They d

    Solo PDF EPUB ´ Hardcover solo ebok, Solo PDFThe 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 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 really wanted to like this book due to some of the extreme critism I did read on some Bondfora and re adress the attitude that Fleming never did write as bad as Boyd did And perha

    Solo PDF EPUB ´ Hardcover solo ebok, Solo PDFI 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

    Solo PDF EPUB ´ Hardcover solo ebok, Solo PDFSo 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

    Solo PDF EPUB ´ Hardcover solo ebok, Solo PDFIt wasn't EXACTLY like reading a James Bond novel or watching a James Bond movie but it was very good and a real page turner And I enjoyed that it was written by a real literary author I had been a little put off initially that it's set in Africa I sometimes find Africa thrillers to be so brutal and grim that it's hard to bear but Boyd writes about it in a way that's gritty without being painful
