Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

A departure from the full-length James Bond novels, For Your Eyes Only is a stunning collection of five stories that sends 007 to Bermuda, Berlin, and beyond, and places him in the dangerous company of adversaries of all varieties. Titular

From a View to a Kill whisks Bond to the French countryside where he must go undercover to expose a deadly secret-intelligence plot, and in For Your Eyes Only, 007 is absorbed into a private vendetta of M's, blurring the lines between the personal and professional. In Quantum of Solace, Bond attends a dinner party in the Bahamas and learns how passion can soon twist into cruelty, while Risico forces the secret agent to fight for the lesser of two evils in a smuggling war set amid the Mediterranean. Finally, The Hildebrand Rarity lands 007 in an old-fashioned murder mystery at sea, where even he has a secret to keep.

A collection of both classic intrigue and intrepid self-examination, For Your Eyes Only packs full, vibrant worlds into five classic tales.

The text in this edition has been restored by the Fleming family company Ian Fleming Publications, to reflect the work as it was originally published.

   Bond Short-stories
Not my favorite of the books, however the miniseries that works nicely.
   ... knowledge of plants and marine life got a bit boring. Never been a fan of short stories
Has never been a fan of short stories. Especially when they jump all over the place.
Currently I read all the Ian Flemming James Bond novels in the order he wrote them From the first I read, Casino Royale to for Your Eyes Only they keep the reader glued to the page. GREAT READS : This book, For Your Eyes Only, is a collection of five short stories by BRILLIANT! I'm just sorry that I didn 't discover them sooner and I will be disappointed when I read the last one without any left to read.
   Short story collection, not a novel.
Bond flexed his creative mind muscle to present Fleming in a different way in these five novellas. From a view to a Kill Bond, a courier is sent to investigate the murder of a kill bond. In For Your Eyes Only Bond is sent by M to avenge the double murder of a couple that M was Best Man years before. He meets a surprise that has echoes of Dr. No and Goldfinger. In Quantum of Solace, Bond spends an evening with a bureaucrat who chills Bond with a story of normal people and extraordinary revenge. In Risico Bond, Danger Falls almost victim to a sinister plot by a supposed friendly agent. In the Gildebrand Rarity, Bond encounters a very ugly American and his beautiful wife and must deal with a mysterious and vicious murder at sea.
   Good but not his best
A good read overall, but not up to par with the full length novels. It was nice to see a different side of Bond.
Fleming was a big fan of the Bond series from John Ross. I look at this deviation from the usual full-length novel style adventure as a way of fleshing the character beyond the great missions we all know. That being said, it seems to me slightly short of the other works, which is why I was only able to give it 3 stars. It was a fun read not the less and I would recommend it to any serious fan of the series.
   Good short stories
Interesting to get a glimpse of Bond in all these different scenarios without having to read a bunch of novels.
   Great read.
Great read! These books are read in high school first. According to James Bond, Ian Fleming was his.
   I Enjoyed it a Lot!
This is the first Bond book that I can remember, where it is not a story, but a collection of 4 or 5 novelettes. This story format works really well. The more I read, the more I come to appreciate Ian Fleming's writing skill. It's too bad that he passed so young. This book has a lot of good stories, none of which seem to have much to do with any of the films.
   Delightfully Entertaining
In addition to the description, character development and storyline, Fleming does a great job in them all.
