So James Bond heads to a small war torn African republic Fair enough What s the point in William Boyd writing a Bond novel if he doesn t do the stuff which interests himIt s 1969 and Bond is sent to Zanzarim a fictional country caught up in a drawn out civil war Oil has been discovered and it s up to Bond to bring this conflict to a swift conclusion From there we have double agents triple agents psychotic South African mercenaries mistaken identity drugs torture and some good old fashioned James Bond brutality This is the tired Bond of The Man with the Golden Gun the same version that Sebastian Faulks explored in Devil May Care I really must read Colonel Sun Devil May Care and Solo back to back one uiet fortnight just to see if there are any allusions and jokes which link them all It opens with Bond s 45th birthday and from there it s a late sixties spectacular but one experienced by a middle aged man So Bond is happy with the latest fashions if it means the women don t wear bras but he s a little befuddled by the new cars and sounds and you get the impression of a man who would be happy if the world hadn t changed since 1958 There is though a Hammer Horror scream princess to keep his bed warm and really you can t get 1960s than thatWhether this is Fleming s voice or Fleming s vision is up for debate the Bond of the later books is far angrier and prone to ranting about the modern world and that doesn t really come through these pages while if Fleming was going to write about Bond in an African republic then one can t help thinking that there d be than one unfortunately racist remark which would make the modern reader wince So it s Boyd than Fleming and that s fine as it s a swift paced and entertaining read although with perhaps an unexpectedly abrupt ending Next up is Anthony Horowitz and from what I ve heard of it I m a little disappointed Not that Horowitz isn t a good writer but because he s using some mouldy old flea bitten idea that Fleming himself couldn t be bothered to turn into a book It seems like the stifling of originality Come on Ian Fleming Estate if we re going to hire literary authors then let s really go for it If you want someone who s already a genre specialist then let s get James Ellroy to explore what that Felix Leiter is really up to By why stop at genre specialists Let s see what Hilary Mantel makes of this imperialistic secret agent or discover how expansive James Bond s vocabulary gets when Will Self has a turn

Solo by William Boyd Download Ý PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Free read Ì PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ð William Boyd Read Solo by William Boyd It is 1969 and James Bond is about to go solo recklessly motivated by revengeA seasoned veteran of the service 007 is sent to single handedly stop a civil war in the small West African nation of Zanzari. HmmIt s not that I didn t like this book it s well plotted and the writing is perfectly competent it s that it turns out I really don t like James BondThis came as something of a shock I ve always enjoyed the films especially Skyfall starring the immensely talented Daniel Craig Bond is glamorous witty strong loyal balletically violent looks great in a tux everything I could want in an action hero The thing is though is that with a movie you re carried along by the spectacle You are invited to enjoy and then a couple of hours later to basically forget all about it Action flicks don t invite you to reflect on the psychological realities of a life of sustained violence They don t bring you inside the protagonist s head or confront you with the effects of a life devoid of meaningful personal relationships Solo does all of these things It s not pleasant James Bond is basically a humourless misogynist substance abusing psychopath I did not enjoy being in his head or seeing the world through his eyes I did not find him attractive or admirable in any way His disassociation from humanity is chilling and the paranoid lies he tells himself to justify his self induced isolation are creepy The title is well chosen Bond is utterly aloneThe really disturbing thing is that the Bond of the movies and the Bond of this book are actually one and the same at no point does William Boyd deviate from canon And since I always found movie Bond pretty attractive I have to ask myself what does this say about meI fear my days of drooling over Daniel Craig may be over
