Talk about Licence Renewed


Syleazahad
This was the first of 14 or so books about James Bond written by John Gardner. John Gardner had already started his own series about Boysie Oakes (The Liquidator series) There was much furor at the time of original publication about the choice of automobile (Saab) and toning down of the sexual activity in the books. This was done in order to appeal to the newer generation of readers.

The book is good and moves fairly quickly throughout. There are a number of better entries in the series and I'll just have to read them all to remember which ones they are... oh, what a shame.....

Enjoy the continuing adventures of the world's most famous spy...

I don't know... Maybe it was because it was Gardner's entry into the Bond world or maybe it just seemed dated (this is over 30 yeas old. All the elements are there... The evil mastermind with his diabolical plot, his burly henchman, the damsel, and the femme fatale. Also the lack of a huge amount of gadgets (one of the distinguishing factors of literary Bond vs cinematic Bond (the classic Bond movies anyway). It just did not grab me until about the last quarter. Look forward to gong deeper into Gardner's Bond.

If you're a fan of Ian Fleming's novels, steer clear of this tripe; indeed, all of the Gardner Bonds. To say they don't hold a candle to the original is to be extremely polite. Weak on all levels. p.s. The best post-Fleming Bonds are: Colonel Sun (by Robert Markham, aka Kingsley Amis); The Man with the Red Tattoo (by Raymond Benson); and Solo (by William Boyd).

Five stars is not to indicate that it is nearly as good as Fleming's work. But if the category is only post-Fleming Bond novels, this is the place to start. The first book in the best post-Fleming Bond series. Solid action. Bond's inner commentary clearly tries to mimic Fleming's work, and somehow it comes closer to succeeding than any of the work by other post-Fleming Bond writers. Bond gets roughed up, and there is no overindulgence of silly gadgets. Gardner does Bond very well, and this is one of his better ones.
OCARO
This is Gardner's first work in Bond since being tapped by the Fleming estate to carry on the double-0 legacy. Good plot development. Isolated from the social context in which Gardner writes, there are some strange character-development choices. Fleming purists, among literatis, will struggle with the intimacy level Gardner affords the reader. There are kitschy moments in this read, but it's a worthwhile escapist piece.
The ebook transfer is flawless. Reading the text on Kindle is a great experience; quite bookish.

Gardner mimicked Fleming's style, along with all his weaknesses (implausible actions by bad guys; letting Bond live so that he can escape again). Melted the Fleming narrative with some added effects from the movies (gadgets). He seemed to think that a nuclear meltdown would emerge somewhere on the Earth; did he really take the "China" syndrome literally?

The 1970s saw the two excellent James Bond continuation novels by Christopher Wood “James Bond, The Spy Who Loved Me” in 1977 and two years later “James Bond, Moonraker”. Although these two books owed much of their basic plots to the movies that Wood helped write, they were in fact much more than that with fully rounded characters and an entertaining narrative. In short, of all the writers to tackle the difficult task of following in Ian Fleming’s foosteps, Christopher Wood was the most successful, effectively managing to channel Fleming. The same cannot be said for John Gardner.
Although I enjoyed reading “Licence Renewed” I am not entirely convinced that I was reading a James Bond novel. Aside from some brilliant sections, the story seems more fitting to a movie. In what is truly an ironic twist it does more so than Wood’s two efforts. The plot involves Bond’s investigation into a Scottish Laird and his plan to cause a nuclear catastrophe to highlight the danger inherent in the use of nuclear power.
I enjoyed that Gardner’s books took us to Scotland. Having grown up on the Scottish border I am always in favor of some Highland fun and we get a particularly well done scene when Bond must spar with the villain’s henchman Caber and thrilling night chase through the Scottish countryside. But without the rich flavor that was so evident in Fleming and Wood’s work we are left feeling that these scenes could have just as easily taken place anywhere else.
Gardner’s first foray into the world of James Bond is a valiant effort and reads perfectly well as a thriller, it just doesn’t read well as a James Bond thriller.
A note of caution. The Amazon listing states that an introduction is included by Raymond Benson. This must be the print edition because I purchased the Kindle version and no introduction was included.
Loved the back plot history and how it blends in. The back grounds scenes of what bond's life was like and of course the adventures he had gotten himself into, truly all bond.
