Moonraker II Goldfinger: Because entangling Bond in a nefarious plot masterminded by the ginger-haired millionaire with a bizarre face whom he caught cheating at cards worked so well the first time. How often in his profession had it been the same – the tiny acorn of coincidence that soared into th...

"Casually, one hand reached out to the control panel and pressed down a switch. There came a slow metallic growl from the end of the table on which Bond lay. It curved quickly up to a harsh whine and then to a shrill high whistle that was barely audible. Bond turned his head wearily away. How soon c...

* The seventh Bond book.* Fourth appearance of Leiter (briefly).* Kind of Moonraker meets Live and Let Die, in the fact that the story begins with a millionaire who cheats at cards and is about a man who is more criminal than government operative.* The most implausible of all Bond books to date. The...

Probably the least-creepy of all of the Bond books I've read so far, I actually really enjoyed Goldfinger. Lots of fun intrigue and, of course, the super-villain for Bond to out-wit.I think I liked it more because it was more about out-thinking the bad guys than about surviving their disgusting meth...

We watched Goldfinger last night on DVD - I'd seen it once before, around 1975, but I could hardly remember a thing about it. Really quite interesting! Some reactions:The womenOMG. There are some scenes one could hardly believe. This was our favourite. Felix Leiter, Bond's opposite number from the C...
