Bond's latest mission takes him to Harlem, Tampa, and Jamaica, and he trades the casual sexism of Casino Royale for casual racism and caricatures of the "negro race".

It's got it all: referring to Black women as "negress". Trying to mimic the Black voice / slang. Talk about the "negro race" as if it was one unified body. "The sixth sense of negroes". "Negroids". Voodoo and Juju. It's got a lot of elements of a Blaxploitation film.

Having said all that, this book (unlike Casino Royale) is where we can see the Bond formula start to develop. Fleming does an excellent job weaving multiple scenes and locations into a well-paced plot that maintains tension and keeps the interest of the reader. It's the same well-balanced amount of plot and action that people come to love about the Bond films.

Literary bond continues his adventures through the 1950s glitterati and is Jetset. It’s hard to describe the effect that these books would’ve had on a austere and depressed populous trying to seek their way in the world when this came out. Once again Flemings I for detail, and he’s journalists potions for fine detail means that this is an evocative fantasy that very much stays in its times. It must be read as a period piece and the rather unpleasant overt xenophobia and racism must be disregarded. In terms of the development of bonds “character“, not much more goes on. The relationship with his friend Felix Leiter deepens, but he find himself on a personal Vendetta. There is a lot of action here. Indeed there is a higher body count them Casino Royale! A very worthy sequel had a must for any true bond or Fleming fan. ( )

Em Viva e deixe morrer (Live and let die) – um dos clássicos de Ian Fleming – James Bond sai das brumas de Londres rumo ao Harlem, em Nova York, o bairro negro onde a vida de um homem não vale mais que uma dose de Bourbon. Lá ele se defronta com o malfeitor Mr. Big, o rei do Harlem, ligado a organizações internacionais lideradas pela então União Soviética.

Neste livro você verá o talento de Ian Fleming ao combinar a ideologia da Guerra Fria com exóticas práticas de vodu no mar das Antilhas, passando pelos legendários clubes de jazz no velho Harlem. Muito superiores aos filmes, os livros de Ian Fleming são hoje considerados peças da melhor literatura, e James Bond ocupa – como diz Anthony Burgess no prefácio deste livro – ao lado de Sherlock Holmes, a galeria dos grandes personagens policiais deste século.

Having read Casino Royale earlier this year I decided it was time for book number 2 in the Bond series. Fortunately I managed to pick up a copy for cheap from a charity shop along with the next 3 in the series.

The first thing that really jumped out was the fact that Fleming uses a hell of a lot of racial slurs in this book. I was prepared for some but not as much as there ended up being in the book. I had decided before hand to let it be what it was but to be honest I found it a little difficult.

That aside, the story is a great one even though it is not quite up to the level reached by Casino Royale. There is a lot of detail wound into the story and there is a vulnerability about Bond which is simply ignored in the movies. The Bond in the movies is one who makes women weak at the knees and is so very smooth and suave. He is also far more injury prone than the movie, he regularly gets a pasting and is hurting a lot. There is also a fair chuck of nakedness.

I enjoyed this book but it wasn't quite up to Casino Royale. ( )
