Ian Fleming ”Thunderball” (James Bond (Original Series) book 9)


Grāmatas apraksts no Goodreads/Synopsis from Goodreads:

“The girl looked him up and down. He had dark, rather cruel good looks and very clear, blue-grey eyes. He was wearing a very dark-blue lightweight single-breasted suit over a cream silk shirt and a black knitted silk tie. Despite the heat, he looked cool and clean. ‘And who might you be?’ she asked sharply. ‘My name’s Bond, James Bond …'”

When a stranger arrives in the Bahamas, the locals barely turn their heads, seeing another ex-pat with money to burn at the casino tables. But James Bond has more than money on his mind: he’s got less than a week to find two stolen atom bombs hidden among the coral reefs. While acting the playboy, Bond meets Domino, sultry plaything of secretive treasure hunter Emilio Largo. In getting close to this gorgeous Italian girl, Bond hopes to learn more about Largo’s hidden operation…

Mana recenzija/My review

In the 9th book about James Bond he is facing new enemy and instead of SMERSH it is SPECTRE(the Special Executive for Counter-intelligence, Terrorism, Revenge, and Extortion). Controlled and empowered by money and not government of some country – introduction of Blofeld and it is his first appearance in this book. As a villain he was better than few others previously.

A bit more believable Bond girl Domino motivated by revenge for hers brother. But still there are stereotypes like women can’t drive + if she’s talking to another with you can be almost sure to expect certain death.

What I liked was the more or less plausible threat from SPECTRE. Also involving some facts about NATO(that could be one of many minuses for this story).

Here and there we can see participation of Felix Leiter : ) But before and between that poor James Bond is forced by M to think more about his health and habits(smoking, drinking) – understandable.

Ending!? What was that? – mystery to me.
