Book Description

Ian Fleming's stories about "Bond...James Bond" are not just popular spy thrillers. They're also a collection of secret codes.

The Bond Code is the remarkable story of how Fleming's association with the occult world led him to create a masterful series of clever clues, ciphers, and codes within his books. Philip Gardiner finally unravels the secret of James Bond piece by piece from the novels and films used to create his aura of mystique. This book introduces not just new material, but radically reappraises everything we thought we knew about James Bond--and his creator.

Gardiner reveals a plethora of fascinating clues that have been hiding in plain sight. For example, Bond's famous 007 designation--a sacred numerological code--was the way Dr. John Dee, an infamous 16th century magician, occultist, and spy, signed his letters. And Queen Elizabeth I signed her replies to Dee as "M"! Dee was thrown out of his university for claiming to create a flying machine. Unknown to many, it was Ian Fleming who wrote Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, featuring, of course, a flying car. Was it a coincidence that Fleming was reading a biography of Dee while he was writing Casino Royale, the first Bond novel?

In You Only Live Twice, Fleming's final novel published while Fleming was alive, Bond is "promoted" and given a new number--7777, which, numerologically, means "it is done." This novel also has a very Japanese flavor because interestingly, in Eastern numerology, 7777 represents the absolute limit or the end.

There are numerous references throughout the books to Gnostic, mystic, and alchemist symbols. Even character names are often clues to Fleming's secrets. Auric Goldfinger, for example, is an alchemical term. Auric means "gold" and the golden finger indicates the alchemist himself, who turns lead into gold. Hugo (mind, spirit, or heart) Drax (dragon or winged serpent) means the "mind of the serpent"--in alchemy, the serpent is the symbol of regeneration and wisdom, but also of negative energy.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 The "thinking man's Da Vinci Code" 6 avril 2008
Par Mrs. R. H. A. Wenner - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
This literary deconstruction is at least as entertaining as its subject. I compare it favorably to studies of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle with regard to autobiographical influences on his creation of literature's greatest detective, Sherlock Holmes. Ian Fleming was--like A. Conan Doyle-- a complex and jaded educated man with both a sense of history and a spiritual dark side which seem to have deliberately informed his idealized, fictional alter ego.

At the very least, Gardiner demonstrates that Fleming's James Bond adventure series is an elaborate literary conceit with private jokes and allusions Fleming didn't care whether the average reader discerned or not--which makes it even more piquant than his most devoted fans could desire. Whether one buys Gardiner's premise or not --and he seems to have done his homework--fans of the Bond oeuvre will enjoy this book. It's the thinking man's "Da Vinci Code".

On a personal note, besides having taught English, I am a retired ornithologist who worked for years in the (formerly British) West Indies. When I was starting out in my early 20's I had the great good fortune of having the REAL James Bond, THE legendary West Indian ornithologist, then living in Philadelphia in his late 80's, --as a kindly and brilliant mentor. Fleming's fictional spy caused him no end of inconvenience, ("What's your REAL name sir?" ) as recounted in a delightful informal memoir "Far Afield in the Caribbean" by Dr Bond's wife, Mary Wickham Bond. If your interest is birdwatching, the Caribbean, or the eccentricities of marriage to a field naturalist, it's worth looking up this charming, out-of-print book.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Not really James Bond 10 avril 2009
Par DaleBr - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
He talks about James Bond and Bond's Dark Side,
but doesn't really say anything. Several movie/book facts are incorrect, e.g., he talks about the "dragon" in Live and Let Die. In reality, the dragon he is describing was in Dr. No (the tank with wings and a flame thrower). If you are looking for Bond, stay away from the book: you'll be disappointed.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The Secret Behind James Bond's Creator 3 janvier 2009
Par Steve Sora - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Leave it to Philip Gardiner to pierce the veil of Ian Fleming's James Bond series so convincingly. While I always enjoyed the adventure side of Bond movies, it was interesting to find first that Fleming played a role, a most significant role, in British intelligence, and second that he had a darker role as student of the occult. The book was an enjoyable and quick read the first time. Then I read it again as I went out and rented Casino Royale, You only live Twice and View to a Kill.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Fascinating reading to any Bond fan or any who want to understand the man behind the phenomenon 10 mars 2009
Par Midwest Book Review - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Inspiration has to come from somewhere. "The Bond Code: The Dark World of Ian Fleming and James Bond" takes a look behind the man behind the icon of pulp spy fiction, Ian Fleming. Touching on a long list of facts and how Fleming came across them ranging from the moniker 007, Fleming's final novel, and more, "The Bond Code" is fascinating reading to any Bond fan or any who want to understand the man behind the phenomenon.

This book is very good for us Bond fans as it goes into some of the
background on the placces and things used in the Bond Movies.
