When you're done with the Fleming ones, start the John Gardner ones. IMO, just as good. If you can find the Kingsley Amis Bond, read it. If not, you aren't missing much.

Yeah I'm trying to read them all in order and so far I've read Casino Royale through Thunderball (only 5 more left) and each one has been excellent. So I'm really hoping the John Gardner Bond is just as good, because my bar is set so high now. But that gives me hope that you found it just as good!

I'm hoping the author tones it down a bit on the conspiracy parts of it and sticks to actual facts from declassified materials.

Just started re-reading the Wheel of Time saga. Started these when I was about 14 and the damn series dragged out so long I couldn't stick with it. Now the final book, book 12 I believe, is coming out so I figure I can start all over again. Pretty remarkable for a series that was supposed to be a trilogy. Robert Jordan dragged it out so long that he actually died before he could finish it...now someone else is writing the last two books.
