Bond Vs. Bond

Bond Vs. Bond
The Many Faces of 007
Paul Simpson
James Bond is a character that is universally known. He first came to the world's attention as a character in a book. Then later he presented in the movies. Played by several different actors who each brought their own flair to his character, he still is an iconic figure who loves women, martinis, guns, and catching the evil villains. The author begins the book by taking a small peak into the life of the man who brought this iconic figure to life - Ian Fleming. He then mentions other writers who wrote about 007 and then delves into the movies and characters that made him a household name.

A large heavy coffee table book that is sure to delight everyone who picks it up, this book is filled with pictures, inside glimpses of the movie sets, and behind the scenes information about the people who helped create the character. As a Bond fan, I enjoyed every moment that I spent in this book. It's a book I would highly recommend to fans of the movies and to anyone who enjoys learning the history behind a legend.

I received this book free of charge from Quarto Publishing Group in exchange for my honest review.
