Whilst this may not be Fleming strongest work, it does have his hallmarks of action, adventure, pacing, and a cartoonish sense of fun. This is James Bond versus the American gangster genre. Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler would’ve done this proud. Tiffany case is a more interesting bongo than we’ve seen for some time and her backstory makes her the typical born girl with a huge degree of emotional hurts.

Unfortunately Flemings rather limited understanding of emotional connection becomes very evident here. The chapters and sections that are related to when bond and Tiffany become a couple are nauseatingly naive and unpleasant. I think if you can get past those and accept this is a tiny part of the book, you will enjoy that. ( )

In Bond's latest adventure, he goes undercover in the US to infiltrate a diamond-smuggling group. Personally, I didn't find this book as interesting as the others. The plot wasn't organized around a central mystery, like Moonraker, for example, so I think it lacked some of the propulsion that one wants in a good novel. ( )

Time for the next novel in Ian Fleming's James Bond series of books. I have one more left after this on my TBR so I will have search out the next books soon. I have enjoyed the previous books and discovered that often, the title is the only thing in common with the movies.

There are relatively few characters who feature a lot in this book. There is obviously our hero James Bond, the girl, Tiffany Case and the ever reliable Felix Leiter. The bad guys are an American mafia organisation called 'The Spangled Mob'. Initially, Bond doesn't take the threat posed by them too seriously as he thinks that they cannot pose as much danger to him as Smersh have in earlier missions. Needless to say, his initial attitude changes the more he has dealings with them.

The plot follows a relatively typical Bond storyline and the book was fairly enjoyable. In particular, old Las Vegas is superbly brought to life by Fleming. I did find the action lacking a little which is a shame as there could have been more done with the mafia angle. I also really didn't like Tiffany Case, I found her to be really quite annoying. She was up and down all the time and I wouldn't have been bothered if she had been killed off.

This was a decent enough read but I preferred the earlier books. ( )

Diamonds, a fixed horse race,Las Vegas, the mob, a steam locomotive, and of course, Bond. ( )

Diamonds Are Forever (1956) (Bond #4) by Ian Fleming. This is one of the lesser Bond outings. Sent to uncover and destroy a diamond smuggling operation, Bond must work his way into the good graces of his contact, Tiffany Case. Together they are to smuggle a grouping of diamonds into the U.S. Along the way he meets some interesting characters including a diabolical duo of killers who mask their true identities. In doing so, they keep their features hidden from the world, including Bond.
While the story is a competent one, I find the process flawed. The story is about rich people keeping their riches while those who work for them are kept as near prisoners. I don’t know how much has changed over the years but I assume there isn’t a great difference in how the workers are treated. So much suffering inflicted so a few people can fill their bank accounts.
And Bond, as usual, is merely a tool the powerful use to keep their positions. ( )
