On Her Majesty’s Secret Service by Ian Fleming

On Her Majesty's Secret Service by Ian FlemingSummary: Ernst Bloefeld (of SPECTRE) is back and has come up with a new scheme.

When I was a kid I loved James Bond movies.  And I still mostly like new James Bond movies.  But as I re-watch old ones the cartoonish villains bug me. Lasers to shoot down rockets, stealing all the gold in Fort Knox, etc. are just a bit silly.

I stumbled on the movie of On Her Majesty’s Secret Service sometime last year and made it through 20 or 30 minutes.  The set up is a bit ridiculous.  The bad guy has a lair in the Alps where beautiful girls go to get rid of their allergies.  James Bond sneaks in find out what is going on.

The movie was a bit silly, but the book was actually the best of the Bond books I have read.  And from a story perspective, it seems to be one of the more realistic.  It involves bioterrorism, but I won’t reveal the actual story.

This is also the book that is famous for Bond getting married.

As much as I enjoyed it, this is the last of the Bond books I have purchased and I think it is the last I will purchase.
