Fleming Is Forever: Why You Should Read the James Bond Books
I first saw Sean Connery as James Bond when Dr No came out in the early 1960s. I loved the film so much that I went on to read Ian Fleming's novels. I was pleased to discover that his thrillers were darker and more complex than the films and I've been a Fleming aficiando ever since..
I often tell fans of the Bond film series that they ought to read the Fleming novels as well. Edward Platt at Newsweek is telling his readers the same thing.
