Originally published on my blog here in July 1998I don t think that the existence of this book is terribly Well Known It S A known It s a #Bond book written in the late sixties and is not by either Ian Fleming or John #book written in the late sixties and is not by either Ian Fleming or John who was licensed to continue the series by the Fleming estate In fact Robert Markham is a pseudonym used by Kingsley Amis of all people a big fan of Ian FlemingBond goes to meet M at his home in Surrey and is surprised there by a gang of thugs who have idnapped M and want to take James as well Escaping from them with a superhuman effort he returns later to find clues pointing to Athens Knowing these to have
"Been Planted By His Attackers "
planted by his attackers decides he has to put his head into the trap in order to be able to save M from themThe No Place Like Home kidnapping is part of a complex Chinese plot to sabotage a conference of Middle Eastern countries taking place on a remote Greek island the conference is run by Russians without thenowledge of the Greek government The idea is to attack the conference with British made weapons and then leave the bodies of Bond and M to make it look like a British attack causing a loss of esteem for British interests and embarrassment for the RussiansThe book is exciting and Amis as Markham has rather of a sense of humour than Fleming I would say its standard is at least on a par with the majority of Fleming s own novels and better than the worst of them such as The Spy Who Loved Me The tension drops a little bit in the middle which describes what is basically a short cruise in the Aegean perhaps exotic to readers in 1968In the end I felt the book reminded me rather strongly of Peter O Donnell s Modesty Blaise series than the Fleming Bond books There. The life of secret agent James Bond has begun to fall into a pattern that threatens complacency until the sunny afternoon when M is idnapped The action ricochets acros. Colonel SunIs a slight tendency towards pornography of violence in that series and here there is an extremely unpleasant torture seuence conducted by the half mad Chinese Colonel Sun on Bond to test the theory of the Maruis half mad Chinese Colonel Sun on Bond to test the theory of the Maruis Sade that torturing another human being would make him feel like a god He later admits that it made him feel evil and ashamed which is perhaps better than expected from this genre of fiction Robert Markham is a pen name for Kingsley Amis who was commissioned by Ian Fleming s estate to write this James Bond seuelIf you like Bond then you will Like COLONEL SUN It Offers COLONEL SUN It offers one expects in a Bond novel And yet it is better than the average Bond book That is because Amis is a polished author than Fleming or Gardner His story follows the Bond formula but his prose is better than Fleming s or Gardner s And that is nice Where do I startBecause Kindles let you do crazy stuff like this I bought all of Fleming s Bond books and binge read them This was interesting as an exercise as it revealed Fleming s preoccupations booze misogyny and bigotry very much included They bear down on the reader with considerable weight You stagger away from the experience with the impression that Ian Fleming was a really unpleasant wee man who had discovered much as had Elizabeth David the rewards of offering escapism to the post war BritishCasino Royale happened to a generation of people still coping with rationing to whom Bond s Krug guzzling leggy blonde fondling avocado scooping lifestyle was wonderful indeed As we started to face the realities of the End of Empire Bond made us feel relevant In the 1950s we needed heroes and leggy women in fast cars to liven up our brown world of.
