Book review : For Your Eyes Only

For Your Eyes Only (James Bond, #8)For Your Eyes Only by Ian Fleming
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

For Your Eyes Only is a departure for the James Bond books so far, as this one is not a single story rather a collection of five short stories featuring the exploits of James Bond. The stories were all very different in style which made for a very eclectic collection of stories some of which worked much better than others. You don’t learn much more about the character of Bond in these five stories than you already know and, as these are short stories, you don’t really get the interesting sub plots and characters that you have come to expect from the Bond stories rather scenes from longer stories which might be more interesting with a little more meat on their bones as they later did with some of these stories into the James Bond movies themselves.
