Ian Fleming and John Le Carre were contemporaries in the "service." Fleming took the entertainment road while Le Carre delved much more deeply into his characters.
Everybody likes Fleming more mostly because of the Bond character (Especially with the toys and the women- Ah- I repeat myself!)

I guess it depends on how old you are when you read the Bond series. The later stories reflect much of Fleming's fear of ageing and death, giving them added depth.

Which story would people recommend to someone who's never read a Bond? I'd go with Moonraker: short, snappy and exciting.

What did people make of Sebastian Faulks Devil May Care Bond pastiche? I thought it was the best Bond novel since the death of Fleming, though not put to Fleming's highest standards.
