Goldfinger by Ian Fleming
James Bond is the world’s most famous spy the world has ever known but before the movies there were the books and the most of which is Gold finger.
After a dangerous mission trailing a heroine drug gang Bond changes planes in Miami and under the request of an acquaintance he is asked to make sure that the man he is playing cards with (Auric Goldfinger) isn’t cheating after a brief investigation Bond does indeed find that Goldfinger is indeed cheating with the aid of his female assistant who was spying on their cards from an above balcony. After forcing Goldfinger to pay all of his illicitly gained winnings back to his victim’s. On his return to England Bond is ordered to determine how exactly Goldfinger is managing to smuggle his gold. However Goldfinger is not to be underestimated and Bond will soon have to realise this or face the consequences.
This book is a hands down classic. It has aged in a way that allows anyone no matter what their age to enjoy it for the literary achievement that it is. I enjoyed reading this book and it was interesting to judge the comparison between one of the finest bond films ever made and one of the greatest bond novels ever written.
Teen Rating: A timeless classic that almost everyone will enjoy 4/5 14+
