Dr No by Ian Fleming
Dr No

Really very good indeed. Been a long time since I’ve read any Fleming but, despite some slightly stilted prose in places, this really is an exciting roller-coaster ride in the classic Bond tradition. Much more hard-edged than the movie representation of 007 too. Interestingly, and perhaps surprisingly, Honey (famously played by Ursula Andress in the film) is a much more interesting, rounded and complex character here.
