RE: RARA-AVIS: The 111 (James Bond)

I'd say James Bond was as hard-boiled as an Englishman can get. He was very cold and matter-of-fact and didn't waste any time when in action. The last line of Casino Royale always stands out for me. Also his taking revenge for Felix Leiter in "Live and Let Die". The local Borders has new British imports of the Fleming books and I can't wait to read them again as all my old copies are falling apart. The non-Fleming books are horrible. Avoid them except for the first two Gardner books (License Renewed and For Special Services - absolutely wild with great twists). Benson, the new guy, does nothing but write wanna-be movies with lots of sleazy sex. Pass. --Brian
