What I Read

The Ian Fleming Files: Operation Armada - No ordinary historical thriller!

The Ian Fleming Files: Operation Armada
This was such an awesome read. Wonderfully descriptive writing, by descriptive I don't mean hundreds of pointless words I mean, beautifully crafted and to the point, not a wasted word in sight.

It follows the tale of Ian Fleming - a young intelligence officer during World War II. The novel starts at a frenetic pace and never lets up until the very last page, very James Bondish!

I'm not usually one who likes historical novels, but this one just didn't read like a 'boring history retelling of factual events' at all.

Fleming is sent, laden with gold, to France with a tempting offer for the commander of the French navy. The question is whether Fleming will get there before the devious commander sells out to the Germans. Really don't want to say more except read it for yourself to see what happens next.

Twists and turns ensue that usually feature in a Bond movie. If you love great thrillers you'd be foolish to miss out on this one.
