IAN FLEMING    Book Number: 86281    Product format: Paperback

Vintage classic paperback reprint of the 1958 original bestseller. Ian Lancaster Fleming (1908-1964) first introduced the world to James Bond, Special Agent 007, in 1953 and Raymond Chandler hailed him as 'the most forceful and driving writer of thrillers in England.' The fifth title, From Russia with Love, was particularly well received and sales soared when President Kennedy named it as one of his favourite books. The Bond novels have sold more than 60 million copies and inspired a hugely successful film franchise to this day. The books were written in Jamaica, a country the writer fell in love with and his only story for children about a magical car was Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. Dr No is the sixth book in the Bond series. "All the greatest men are maniacs." "You're out of luck, Dr. No." A gripping read, 329pp on which page is the following: "She came to Bond and took him by the hand and lifted him up. She undid his shirt and slowly, carefully took it off. Her body, close to him, smelled of new-mown hay and sweet pepper. She led him away from the table and through a door..." "Do as you are told." She said.
