Ian Lancaster Fleming was an English author, journalist and naval intelligence officer who is best known for his James Bond novels. The Bond books were written in post-war Britain when the country was still an imperial power. As the series progressed, the British Empire was in decline; journalist William Cook observed that "Bond pandered to Britain's inflated and increasingly insecure self-image, flattering us with the fantasy that Britannia could still punch above her weight. Live and Let Die is the second novel in Ian Fleming's James Bond series of stories, and is set in London, the US and Jamaica.

This is the second James Bond Novel authored by Ian Fleming. James Bond comes to America, Harlem, then Florida, then Jamaica. It is a decent spy action thriller. I have never been a very big fan of James Bond movies, but this novel seems, pretty much like a literary version of a James Bond film.

The book was written by a British author in 1954. Coincidentally, 1954 is the same year of the historic United States Supreme Court Decision "Brown versus Board of Education". So what? The modern Civil Rights movement was just gaining traction in America. This novel is more consistent with the pre modern Civil Rights viewpoint. James Bond, as a white person, does battle with American black organized criminals. There is a LOT of dated ethnic nomenclature and stereotyping that could offend some readers. I do not believe in censorship or rewriting of novels such as this. I actually find a novel such as this provides much fuel for inner contemplation. Just be advised there is a lot of ethnic references in this novel.

Personally, the above observation aside, I think this is a somewhat better written novel than the first James Bond novel, "Casino Royale". There is a lot of descriptive narrative that I felt was more sophisticated than the prior novel. This novel can be read without having read the first novel. There is one character, an American, Felix Leiter, who makes an appearance in this novel, who had also been in the first novel. Obviously, "M" and Miss Moneypenny are ongoing characters.

When I was a youth growing up in America in the 1950s and 1960s, I was not allowed to read James Bond novels. I had friends of my age who did read them. All they talked about was the sexual aspects of these novels. By today's standards, I do not find these novels are not to be particularly salacious. But as a parent and grandparent, I would be very careful about allowing a child or grandchild to read these novels.

In summary, I am glad I read this novel, I liked it, but did not love it, I would not read it again without good cause. Thank You...

I've read a couple of the books, always been a big fan of the movies. This book influenced at least 3 of the movies, but the perspective and the times when this was written makes Ian's handling of race issues cringeworthy. If you're willing to ignore that, the Bond character in the books seems to get hurt more frequently, it even impedes his lovemaking occasionally. There's also a bit of travelogue and cooking channel in here. All of that is in the movies, but when Bond offers a culinary critique in the movies it's a one liner, and when he travels to exotic locations it's a visual stimuli; however, in the book you learn about ingredients, recipes, and techniques, and you get a description of the type of grass blowing in the wind while the characters sleep on the train. Definitely a different experience, but I shall continue on. Proceed according to your palate.

For some reason the Complete James Bond collection isn't available for Kindle, so anyone who wants to read these light weight action packed books has to buy them individually. I'm not complaining, because I remember when I got my first iPad and tried to find the Bond books they weren't available at all.

You'll notice that price-wise they tend to hover around $8 each so when I saw this one at 99c I was ready to jump on it-- then I saw SPANISH EDITION and was glad I did-- I'm looking for these in English. Well, I decided to click on the LOOK INSIDE anyway and sure enough it was in English. Now that means either the book is in English or Amazon made a mistake in the listing (shocking!)-- so I took a chance and ordered it for 99c figuring that it was worth the risk-- and sure enough I just downloaded it and it is in English!

Woo! Great books these Fleming Bond's are-- they are racist, they are sexist, they are action oriented, they were written in a different time. Great summer reading.

Unbunch your panties and get ready for some fun.

A great spy novel about the greatest fictional spy (sorry Bourne). Fleming's James Bond is slightly different than the film version. The book allows you to get inside his head, showing him cold and professional at times, then overcame by emotions at others. The book is very violent and does not shy away from gory details. It was a fun adventure and at times it was "edge-of-your-seat" reading.

To those of you upset about the book's racial slurs and discrimination, understand that this was very much a product of its time. I will leave you with a blurb that I borrowed from the Looney Tunes Golden Collection DVDs (of all things) that always comes to mind when I visit things from an earlier generation.

"The cartoons you are about to see are products of their time. They may depict some of the ethnic and racial prejudices that were commonplace in the U.S society. These depictions were wrong then and they are wrong today. While the following does not represent the Warner Bros. view of today's society, these cartoons are being presented as they were originally created, because to do otherwise would be the same as claiming that these prejudices never existed."

If you plan on reading this, I hope you enjoy Bond's adventure and continue with the other books. They are definitely a treat for fans of the movie or spy genre.

One of the many iconic lines from a masterful author. Sadly most now aren't familiar with this series except from the James Bond movies, which often had only the title in common with the book. The Bond character of the books, while quite ruthless, nevertheless suffered from normal human sensitivities that were rarely shown in the movies, making him a very interesting protagonist. This coupled with the amazing world of Mr. Big and Bond's struggles to bring his empire down make for a great read.
