"Devil May Care" will be published in May 2008 to celebrate the Centenary of Ian Fleming's birth. This new installment in the adventures of the world's most iconic spy has been written by one of Britain's most admired novelists, Sebastian Faulks. 'My novel is meant to stand in the line of Fleming's own books, where the story is everything' said Faulks, 'In his house in Jamaica, Ian Fleming used to write a thousand words in the morning, then go snorkelling, have a cocktail, lunch on the terrace, more diving, another thousand words in late afternoon, then more Martinis and glamorous women. In my house in London, I followed this routine exactly, apart from the cocktails, the lunch and the snorkelling'.Picking up from where Fleming left off in 1966 with "The Living Daylights / Octopussy", Faulks has written the perfect continuation of the James Bond legacy. "Devil May Care" is set during the Cold War and features all the glamor, thrills and excitement that one would expect from any adventure involving Bond...James Bond.

And who better to write it than one of the most popular British authors of the contemporary crop, Sebastian Faulks? As an avid Faulks fan,...

3.0 La esencia del mal (Seix Barral)
Continuación directa de las novelas de Fleming. Bien adaptada a la época mantiene el ritmo copiando fielmente el estilo del original, incluso alguna que otra innecesaria y kilométrica descripcion a las que acostumbraba el autor. Para los fans de las primeras novelas de Bond.

3.0 Devil May Care
Some interesting stuff about Persia/Iran in this otherwise highly conventional thriller (I suppose that's a compliment, since presumably the point of a Bond sequel is to demonstrate the conventions that fed the movie series). Interesting, however, to read it in conjunction with seeing the latest in ...
