Moonraker is the third novel by Ian Fleming to feature his fictional British Secret Service agent James Bond. According to the author Raymond Benson, Moonraker is a deeper and more introspective book than Fleming's previous work, which allows the author to develop the characters further. In Moonraker, Millionaire Hugo Drax cheats at cards, the highest offence in polite English society. Categories: Classic Literature, Mystery, Thriller & Suspense. Reader: Robert Whitfield

Octopussy and The Living Daylights is a short story collection by Ian Fleming. It was collected and published after Fleming's death. The book is very short and only contains four stories. "Octopussy" Is a story about a former British officer who is now in retirement. All seems to be well until a man named Bond shows up and exposes an old crime. "The Living Daylights" has Bond using his skills as a sniper to protect a spy who is trying to escape from East Berlin. In "Property of a Lady" Bond has to trap a mole inside the office. Finally in "007 in New York" Bond spends an evening in the Big Apple.

The stories are short and are not exactly his best work. Fleming was a great writer of novels. His novels were never long, almost all coming in at under 200 pages. Somehow that format better fits his style. "Octopussy" is an interesting morality tale of murder and greed. "The Living Daylights" is an interesting story because it shows Bond at odds with his duties as a 00 agent. The other two stories are below par for Fleming's work. Overall the two title stories are alright. If you want to own all of Fleming's Bond Books then you will need to get this book. Don't make it your first Bond book though.

"Octopussy and The Living Daylights" was published after Ian Fleming's death. The book originally contained just two stories, "Octopussy" and "The Living Daylights", with later editions also carrying "The Property of a Lady" and eventually including "007 in New York". The stories were first published in different publications. "Octopussy" was first serialized in the Daily Express in 1965. "The Living Daylights" first appeared in The Sunday Times in 1962. "The Property of a Lady" was published in 1963 in The Ivory Hammer. "007 in New York" first appeared in the New York Herald Tribune in 1963. I bought "Octopussy and The Living Daylights" to complete the series of Ian Fleming's 14 'Bond' books. These short stories are good, but not his best work. I feel that the collection of short stories tied together in his "For Your Eyes Only" are better. Please note that this is only my opinion, and should not dissuade anyone from purchasing it. I'm sorry that Ian Fleming didn't live longer to write more of his beloved 'James Bond' adventures.

It's really sad and disappointing that Ian Fleming's final novel in the James Bond series, The Man with the Golden Gun, seems rushed off and incomplete, with a dirty and violent quality that is almost atypical of his previous books. He embodied them with vivid, real descriptions of the locations that put the reader right in the center of the action. Golden Gun lacked them a lot.

This final book, a series of four previously unreleased short stories that were written in the years prior to Fleming's death, returns Bond to true form, with vivid back stories, real locations, and tight plots that, while brief, still fall into the 007 spirit.

The first tale, Octopussy, finds Bond in Jamaica again, this time with orders to bring in a former British military officer for killing a German sympathizer and harboring his gold. (This tale bears absolutely zero resemblance to the cheesy 1983 Roger Moore movie of the same name.) The second, The Property of a Lady, has Bond attempting to locate a party interested in buying a Faberge egg.

In The Living Daylights, Bond must travel to Germany and stop a hit man from taking out a Service agent... only to give Bond a real dilemma in his heart. (This tale translated quite well to screen in the opening moments of the Timothy Dalton film of the same name.) Finally, 007 in New York is, well, 007 in, well, New York, locating a fellow agent who has apparently been sleeping with the enemy. It's less about the mission and more about the sights and sounds of the Big Apple. (And you even get a recipe for scrambled eggs, Bond style! Hope you have a big appetite!)

As this book was released two years after Fleming's death, it's almost an attempt to right a serious wrong for Bond fans who may have felt a bit betrayed by the lack of quality in Golden Gun. While on the slim side, this is still classic Fleming that leaves you wondering how far he had planned to take the character or even if there are any unpublished plots lingering in a vault somewhere waiting to be discovered.

Really, the only thing keeping this book from being 5 stars is the short story 007 in New York. The other ones have a clear focus and conflict being worked through. And the stories are quick reads. 007 in New York just appears to exist, not really offering much in terms of story, conflict, or anything else to justify itself, at least in comparison to the rest.

As much as I love these, they have some nerve publishing this 93 page book by itself and charging $15 for it. They could have bundled some of these shorter books together into an omnibus, but don’t let that sour you, these stories are great and worth paying for.

This book compiles four stories, Octopussy, The Property of a Lady, The Living Daylights, and 007 in New York (worst title ever?). As fans know, almost none of these stories bear any resemblance to the movies of the same name, not like you would expect anyway. The Property of a Lady was transformed into a scene within Octopussy, whereas the events of the Octopussy short were left out of the movie entirely. The Living Daylights short story comprises only part of the beginning of the film. And 007 in New York I don’t recognize from any movie and weirdly contains a recipe for James Bond Scrambled Eggs (seriously).

Sadly, this is the last Bond book that Fleming wrote, and while it’s nowhere near as good as Casino Royale, it’s still a fine book which I will treasure and enjoy forever.
