Descripción del producto
"Ian Fleming keeps you riveted. His narrative pulls with the smooth power of Bond’s Thunderbird" (Sunday Telegraph)
"Vivian Michel is far the most attractive of Bond’s heroines to date" (Sunday Times)
"Imaginative and revealing... frightening... Fleming has succeeded in creating a true sense of terror... the most escapist fantasy of the series" (Raymond Benson)
Reseña del editor
WITH A NEW INTRODUCTION BY DOUGLAS KENNEDY
‘You take a wrong step, play the wrong card in Fate’s game, and you’re lost in a world you had never imagined, against which you have no weapons. No compass.’
Vivienne Michel is running away – from pain, from rejection, from humiliation. When she stumbles into a criminal plot, her life seems over... until a chance encounter with James Bond turns her world upside down. Ian Fleming’s tenth 007 novel is a unique view of Bond, through the eyes of a woman who loves him.

After just finishing rereading "Dr. No" and "From Russia with Love" I was ready for something different from Fleming, and this book certainly is that. The story is told with flashbacks from the perspective of the young French-Canadian woman Vivienne Michel. During the first part of the book Vivienne's character is well developed, with much more detail and nuance than for female characters in the other Bond books that I have read. I don't know whether a woman would find Vivienne's character credible, but I certainly did. In the middle of the book two gangsters show up at the deserted motel where Vivienne acts as temporary caretaker, and I found their characters to be completely credible and genuinely creepy. Up to this point the book is an excellent mystery of the "damsel-in-distress" type.
When James Bond shows up and the "action/adventure" portion of the book begins, I started to fell a little disappointed. The gunfight at the burning motel is stereotypic, and after the "bad guys" are suitably dispatched Bond and Vivienne head for the sack. Vivienne doesn't get the role of heroine here, but she does pretty well for someone who has been coshed earlier in the evening. Bond on the other hand is not at his best: why did he not think to have Sluggsy and Horror kneel before asking Vivienne to disarm them? Why did he ask her to move between him and the gangsters?
The contrast between how Vivienne and the other characters are handled highlighted a feature of the Bond books that I hadn't thought about when caught up in the action: Fleming's bad guys are a little cartoonish, sometimes resembling the villains that Dick Tracy had to contend with (e.g., Coffyhead, Flyface, Wormy Marron). Sluggsy and Horror are a little like that, but people like them still might plausibly jump out at you from a dark alley.
I was left wondering what would become of Vivienne. Was Bond really an improvement over Derek and Kurt? Is it her tragic flaw that she is doomed to a series of relationships with guys like that? The ending makes me wonder whether she will ever break out of this pattern.
