I though this was a great book about young James bond. The story is very moving and the ending is fantastic. In some parts of the story it become gruesome with some blood but there are fantastic chapters about James getting in sticky situations. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys books with a lot of action and a good plot to them to.
Jul 16, Claire Russell rated it really liked it. James Bond is a pupil at Eton and finds life a little pedestrian with the exception of the Danger Society he is a member of. When the Society is almost discovered after a meeting, James escapes over the rooftops of Eton.
He finds himself in an area he has never been in before, overhears two men speaking Latin and stumbles across a temple with the initials MM on a painting. Meanwhile in the Greek islands a boat is hi-jacked and the English army captain on-board with his crew are killed, whilst th James Bond is a pupil at Eton and finds life a little pedestrian with the exception of the Danger Society he is a member of.
The two strands of the story join together when James realises that the kidnapped sister of his school friend is being held at an Italian counts fortress that James and his Uncle are visiting. As can be expected from a young James Bond, danger is never far away and James is soon caught up in a World of art thieves.
Will he be able to rescue the girl and find out who are the members of the secret MM society with Etonian links? The book is as fast paced and adventurous as an Ian Fleming novel. It was a real page-turner and I enjoyed it much more than I thought I would. The characters are well formed and interesting and the plot is not sanitized. James endures some horrific situations such as being tied up and tortured by mosquitos, being beaten by the art thieves as well as an attempt to drug him and push him off a cliff.
I think the book would be enjoyed by all readers, but would particularly appeal to boys who are reluctant readers — it talks to the reader as an adult. James is a brave, reckless and honourable character who would appeal to readers in Years 5 and 6. I think the ideal way to use this book would be firstly for independent reading specifically targeting the reluctant reader. Then use for a Big Write, asking children to imagine themselves as trainee spies and to think of an adventure they could have.
Encouraging them to think about how they would confront dilemmas they encountered in dangerous situations. View 2 comments.

But now his thoughts change. He thinks differently about what he had thougt before. But the biggest mystery is revealed around the end of the book whwn James finds out something that he least expected. Read through the book to find out how this book twists and turns your brain. Each page has a mystery that is revealed around the end of the story.
Each detail is important because as I later found out, the least bit of information becomes the most interesting part of the book.
If you push yourself to read through the few boring parts of the book, then you will find out that the overall book is very interesting. I would definitely recommend this book for any teenage readers. Next book Dec 29, Carson rated it really liked it.
If anyone thought that a Young Bond book would lack the action, adventure, bloodshed and body count of a Fleming thriller, think again. Frankly, I would love to see what Higson could do with a story in Bond's later years. Even still, his version of teenage stories are incred If anyone thought that a Young Bond book would lack the action, adventure, bloodshed and body count of a Fleming thriller, think again.
Even still, his version of teenage stories are incredible as they set the stage for what's to come. Furthermore, they are very emotionally-charged; I got caught up in the events of both Books 1 and 2 in key scenes in ways that many former Bond books never got me. Another strong entry.
