By far, the saddest of the Bond books...

Bond is hot on the trail of Blofeld and SPECTRE. He gambles, meets a girl, learns about family trees, and ends up on a Swiss mountain top surrounded by beautiful women who are being treated for allergies! He also makes a new enemy, Irma Bunt! There follows skiing, bobsledding, explosions and avalanches. And after it all, Bond marries Tracy. And then...

"you see, we've got all the time in the world."

Bond penetrates the stronghold of Spectre chief Blofeld disguised as a herald. Being a herald, I enjoyed the concept. ( )

Of all the Bond books, I think I like this one the most. The movie with Sean Connery was great & it blended in my mind perfectly with the book. I guess it's the romantic streak in me that made it so hard hitting. ( )

It’s one of the best Fleming-penned Bond adventures
