Description du produit

Revue de presse

"A most compelling story-teller" (The Times) --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition CD .

Présentation de l'éditeur

For James Bond, British secret agent 007, international espionage can be a dirty business. Whether it is tracking down a wayward major who has taken a deadly secret with him to the Caribbean; identifying a top Russian agent secretly bidding for a Fabergé egg in a Sotheby's auction room; or ruthlessly gunning down an unlikely assassin in sniper's alley between East and West Berlin, Bond always closes the case - with extreme prejudice. --Ce texte fait référence à l'édition CD .

Format: Poche
Publié en 1966 de manière posthume, ce quatorzième et dernier livre de Ian Fleming ("Meilleurs voeux de la Jamaïque" en VF) est un recueil de trois nouvelles: "Octopussy", "The Property of a Lady" et "The Living Daylights", auxquelles est venue s'ajouter, dans les éditions les plus récentes, "007 in New-York". Ce qui est intéressant, dans ces courts récits, c'est que Fleming nous y montre un autre visage de 007. Pas d'intrigue globale ici, pas de super-méchants, peu d'action. Place à l'atmosphère, à l'introspection. La première nouvelle, "Octopussy", qui se déroule à la Jamaïque et traite de l'honneur perdu d'un officier anglais, baigne dans un climat très Somerset Maugham. La deuxième, "The property of a Lady", évoque une vente aux enchères un peu particulière chez sotheby's. Quant à la quatrième, "007 in New-York", très brève, c'est surtout l'occasion pour Bond de s'y livrer à quelques réflexions bien senties sur la Grosse Pomme et ses habitants. Mais le bijou de ce recueil, c'est à mon avis "The Living Daylights" qui nous plonge au coeur de la Guerre Froide, à Berlin, où l'ami James doit superviser le retour à l'Ouest d'un agent britannique. Une mission en apparence banale mais qui va lui poser un terrible cas de conscience! Bref, voilà des nouvelles tout à fait intéressantes qui s'attachent à nous montrer un Bond fragile, vulnérable, un Bond qui doute, médite, philosophe, un Bond qui désobéit aux ordres qu'on lui donne quand ceux-ci heurtent son éthique personnelle. Un espion à visage humain, quoi!

Such a pleasure to hear the great Tom Hiddlestion read this book, as if he was on stage... It makes you believe you're in a theater, watching this talentuous actor interpreting a master piece.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A Decent Short Story Collection 20 juin 2013
Par David I. Williams - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Octopussy and The Living Daylights is a short story collection by Ian Fleming. It was collected and published after Fleming's death. The book is very short and only contains four stories. "Octopussy" Is a story about a former British officer who is now in retirement. All seems to be well until a man named Bond shows up and exposes an old crime. "The Living Daylights" has Bond using his skills as a sniper to protect a spy who is trying to escape from East Berlin. In "Property of a Lady" Bond has to trap a mole inside the office. Finally in "007 in New York" Bond spends an evening in the Big Apple.

The stories are short and are not exactly his best work. Fleming was a great writer of novels. His novels were never long, almost all coming in at under 200 pages. Somehow that format better fits his style. "Octopussy" is an interesting morality tale of murder and greed. "The Living Daylights" is an interesting story because it shows Bond at odds with his duties as a 00 agent. The other two stories are below par for Fleming's work. Overall the two title stories are alright. If you want to own all of Fleming's Bond Books then you will need to get this book. Don't make it your first Bond book though.

I received Titan Books’ new release, Spectre, and came to give my thoughts but saw that Stephen Vincent Kempton had essentially beat me too it. I agree completely with most everything he said.

The book is a nice hardcover and while I prefer the “Library of American Comics” format this volume uses, these are all strips Titan has reproduced in the past in paperback albums. This book utilizes a three per page format rather than the 4 of the earlier version, so they are larger but, as Mr. Kempton mentions, the source material appears no better here than their previous releases. So, if you have those earlier volumes, there is no reason to buy this book, and I do wish that the initial description in Amazon (or from Titan) was clearer. When I first read the title, James Bond: Spectre: The Complete Comic Strip Collection, I also thought I was getting a complete run of the strip when it was just the stories that mentioned Spectre. So that was disappointing and doubly so as the description now says exactly that.

My other comments pretty much echo Mr. Kempton.
1. In this volume, the stories were not published in the order they appeared in the Daily Express, but in the order the Fleming novels were published. So, you get a mixture of artistic styles and qualities of adaptations and lose whatever continuity there was in the strips..
2. This volume begins with Thunderball which is a bizarre anomaly in the James Bond strip since (as anyone remotely familiar with the story will quickly realize) the final two-thirds of the story is jammed into less than a dozen strips. Domino disappears completely; the climactic underwater battle is one strip, and the battle of wits between Bond and Largo is essentially gone. This happened because Lord Beaverbrook, who owned and ran the Daily Express, had a disagreement with Fleming on royalties. Beaverbrook decided to end the strip post haste and it was rapidly drawn to an end. So while it did deal with Spectre, it is a poor representative of the strip.
3. The introduction is written not by a Bond-o-phile or even a comic strip historian, but by John Logan… who worked on the production of several of the Bond films. To me, while he gives some insights on the movies, the two pages he wrote gives no new insight into either the strips or the history other than to say that the Bond of the films is different from the Bond of the strips… which were fairly faithful to Fleming’s stories. I believe anyone that has actually read Fleming's books will know that the bond of the books and the one of the films are two different animals.
4. My final comment goes to the point Mr. Kempton used as a title for his post. Why was this book published? If it was to tie-in with the Spectre film, why release it months after the film was released? Wouldn’t Titan be better served to have this out in anticipation of the film? That boat may have sailed already.

In summary, if you don’t already own the original Titan collections of the James Bond strips by John McLusky and Henry Gammidge and the ones by Yaroslav Horak and Jim Lawrence (the adaptation of The Spy Who Loved Me was always one of my favorites) this is a nice introduction to the strip (skipping Thunderball) in a reasonably priced hardback. If you do have those earlier volumes, you already have these stories and the reproduction (while smaller) is no better here. I really like the new format Titan is using. It is not, however, The Complete Comic Strip Collection and I suppose I should never have expected it to be for this price.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 This collection of 'James Bond' short stories is good, but not Ian Fleming's best work. 16 février 2016
Par Stephen P. Lopez - Publié sur Amazon.com

"Octopussy and The Living Daylights" was published after Ian Fleming's death. The book originally contained just two stories, "Octopussy" and "The Living Daylights", with later editions also carrying "The Property of a Lady" and eventually including "007 in New York". The stories were first published in different publications. "Octopussy" was first serialized in the Daily Express in 1965. "The Living Daylights" first appeared in The Sunday Times in 1962. "The Property of a Lady" was published in 1963 in The Ivory Hammer. "007 in New York" first appeared in the New York Herald Tribune in 1963. I bought "Octopussy and The Living Daylights" to complete the series of Ian Fleming's 14 'Bond' books. These short stories are good, but not his best work. I feel that the collection of short stories tied together in his "For Your Eyes Only" are better. Please note that this is only my opinion, and should not dissuade anyone from purchasing it. I'm sorry that Ian Fleming didn't live longer to write more of his beloved 'James Bond' adventures.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 Hiddleston does a turn reading James Bond shorts - well-written stories well read 27 décembre 2016
Par Laurie Ochsner - Publié sur Amazon.com

Tom Hiddleston puts in another quality performance, this time reading short James Bond stories. (Foreshadowing future life events? Time will tell.) The pacing is snappy, the plots engaging; well-written stories well read.

I was glad to find out the REAL origins of the name "Octopussy," from the short story read here - a nickname for a "pet" octopus, as opposed to the uncomfortably sexist, exploitative innuendo of the Roger Moore movie of the same name.

Author Ian Fleming's daughter reads the last piece in the collection, which is a nice touch.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 A quick, fitting finale from Ian Fleming 2 octobre 2013
Par Bill Williams - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
It's really sad and disappointing that Ian Fleming's final novel in the James Bond series, The Man with the Golden Gun, seems rushed off and incomplete, with a dirty and violent quality that is almost atypical of his previous books. He embodied them with vivid, real descriptions of the locations that put the reader right in the center of the action. Golden Gun lacked them a lot.

This final book, a series of four previously unreleased short stories that were written in the years prior to Fleming's death, returns Bond to true form, with vivid back stories, real locations, and tight plots that, while brief, still fall into the 007 spirit.

The first tale, Octopussy, finds Bond in Jamaica again, this time with orders to bring in a former British military officer for killing a German sympathizer and harboring his gold. (This tale bears absolutely zero resemblance to the cheesy 1983 Roger Moore movie of the same name.) The second, The Property of a Lady, has Bond attempting to locate a party interested in buying a Faberge egg.

In The Living Daylights, Bond must travel to Germany and stop a hit man from taking out a Service agent... only to give Bond a real dilemma in his heart. (This tale translated quite well to screen in the opening moments of the Timothy Dalton film of the same name.) Finally, 007 in New York is, well, 007 in, well, New York, locating a fellow agent who has apparently been sleeping with the enemy. It's less about the mission and more about the sights and sounds of the Big Apple. (And you even get a recipe for scrambled eggs, Bond style! Hope you have a big appetite!)

As this book was released two years after Fleming's death, it's almost an attempt to right a serious wrong for Bond fans who may have felt a bit betrayed by the lack of quality in Golden Gun. While on the slim side, this is still classic Fleming that leaves you wondering how far he had planned to take the character or even if there are any unpublished plots lingering in a vault somewhere waiting to be discovered.
