Bond is in real danger until help comes from an unlikely quarter, the ice-maiden herself.

Ian Lancaster Fleming was a British journalist, naval intelligence officer, and creator of the fictional British spy, James Bond. Educated at Eton, Sandhurst, and at universities in Switzerland and Germany, Fleming s failure at the Foreign Office entrance exams led to brief careers with Reuters and as a stockbroker before he joined British Naval Intelligence in 1939.

I am not a literary reviewer, but I will share that I had some curiosity about the original Ian Fleming books and his protagonist James Bond. Having seen all of the movies, I wanted to understand what the original stories were like before they got the Movie Studio treatment. The earlier Movies followed along the books in a good and positive way, but of course the later movies diverged a great deal, and often for good and commercial reasons. Diamonds are Forever was a good read, as our Hero winds up in the Desert Southwest on the trail of a large Diamond smuggler, in the company of the lovely Ms. Tiffany Case. Enjoyed this Story.

I have to admit, going into "Diamonds are Forever," the fourth James Bond novel from the pen of creator Ian Fleming, I had my prejudices. Up to this point everything I had known about the novel had been influenced by the 1971 film version with Sean Connery and Jill St. John. For that matter, everything about Fleming's novels were influenced by the film releases. So, going into the original novel (as with the first three books), what Fleming wrote and what was adapted for the screen are two vastly different animals.

For example, the novel is not the campy schlock that was put
on screen. It's straightforward drama and action throughout. It's as if the screenwriters took the basic premise of Bond versus diamond smugglers, threw in the tasty dish that is Tiffany Case, added a quick reference to the mud baths, and made the henchmen Wint and Kidd' s gay relationship (only briefly hinted at) more flamboyant in the final film, and cooked up everything else (even the whole Blofeld angle). Granted, this was at a time in the Bond film franchise where producers Broccoli and Saltzman began to stray more from Ian Fleming's original intent and make the James Bond character even more flamboyant on the screen than in the pages of the books.

Having said that, I was really surprised by the pacing of the novel, at this point Fleming's longest. It is a more carefully constructed yarn filled with accurate descriptions of locale and realistic moments of gambling and horse racing and action. And there's the sad yet very real back story that is Tiffany Case's past, which makes her an attractive foil for our hero. He does more than just physically rescue her, he saves her inside and out. And Bond's motives for saving his friends and defeating the bad guys are to the point and not the markings of a flashy secret agent with quick jokes and gadgets. It's a simpler yet more significant character who relies on his thinking and attention to duty.

I can understand why some people are not as big a fan of "Diamonds are Forever" (the novel) if they had the movie on the brain. Fortunately, I have not seen the film version all the way through, only a few clips here and there plus the trailer, so my reading the novel is not as influenced by the film version as, say, "Casino Royale" (which they got right in 2006). And it's as different as the book and film versions of Fleming's third installment, "Moonraker".

Still, it makes for good solid storytelling through and through from Bond's creator. And as opposed to the later cycles from John Gardner and Raymond Benson, I'm going through the Fleming originals as he meant them to be read.
This wasn't one of the best Bond books so far, but it was enjoyable. There wasn't as much villain and Bond conversations that are among the best part of these novels. The villain wasn't really known and didn't seem fully developed.

I like that they are on the shorter side and easy to read. I do wish (for all these novels) that were was more conclusions at the end, instead of just ending. Seems that is Fleming's writing style, at least for these novels.
If I were a woman, I might conduct a séance, and then throttle the spirit of Ian Fleming. He's not a bad guy, mind you, but just once, I'd like to see a female character give James Bond a run for his money. So far I'm still waiting for a return on my initial investment. And I know this is one investment that probably won't pan out, but I can still hold onto a faint glimmer of false hope.

Vesper Lynd did come close, but she ultimately failed when paired next to Bond's wit and charm. Tiffany Case, however, pales in comparison. But you don't read James Bond to gain profound insights into the female psyche, unless you want to end up several miles in the wrong direction with a broken radiator and a flat tire.

I do find it interesting that once again Bond is tortured, and once again the reader completely misses out on the experience. Mr. Fleming must have decided that he couldn't top the scene in CASINO ROYALE, which brought a whole new meaning to the word punishment, so he decided to not even try. Life, though, proves a whole lot more interesting and fun and exciting, when you toss a cement wall in the middle of the highway every once in a while.

While I enjoyed DIAMONDS ARE FOREVER, the main bad dude felt a bit nebulous, almost like an evil presence more than an evil person. And while the action was present and accounted for, it felt a bit less than full throttle, and the scenes seemed to end much too quickly.

I've enjoyed the Bond study thus far, simply because of his vast influence, and I'm happy to continue my journey, but I am thankful there's no test at the end.
