    Updated 8 4 2019In anticipation of Bond 25, I am re reading all Fleming Bond novels and now some of my favorite continuation novels High Time To Kill was remembered as my favorite continuation novel.I downed my review from 5 stars to 4 with a second reading, solely because there are moments that are a bit cheesy and non Fleming Bond.Benson is a master of his craft he did the impossible follow Fleming and created a hybrid of the literary 007 and the film one The comma of black hair, scar, Updated 8 4 2019In anticipation of Bond 25, I am re reading all Fleming Bond novels and now some of my favorite continuation novels High Time To Kill was remembered as my favorite continuation novel.I downed my review from 5 stars to 4 with a second reading, solely because there are moments that are a bit cheesy and non Fleming Bond.Benson is a master of his craft he did the impossible follow Fleming and created a hybrid of the literary 007 and the film one The comma of black hair, scar, cruel mouth, yet the Aston Martin we only see him drive in the films save literary Goldfinger and the gadgets from Q Branch High Time to Kill features golf, a rival, multiple Bond girls who frankly submit too easily and are not really written as characters of strength and one of the greatest physical tests of James Bond mountain climbing to 8,000 meters 30,000 feet I ve been in the mountains since my last reading review, so I can say Bond s choice of Patagonia and Merrell brands rings true Roland Marquis is an interesting character I kept picturing the mean lawyer on Boston Legal with blonde hair who was always antagonizing our heroes The plot has dire and important consequences for Britain Our new M played by Dame Judi Dench is in full effect The year is 1999 and yet we ignore the fact James Bond is 70 years old the ambiguity of his age is glorious For Bond is timeless And High Time To Kill is a FANTASTIC READ __________________________With no offense to John Gardner, who wrote some worthy 007 entries, Raymond Benson s Bond stories, symmetry and descriptive captivation gets better with each chapter Not only does this solitary rogue feel like Fleming s agent but he fully embraces his solace and demons as he hurls himself into danger and is restless when his life isn t on the line This story was engaging from beginning to end, through twists and turns and up the mountain where the story climaxes 5 stars

    Bond sat on the wooden seat, enjoying the sense of well used oak against his buttocks, as he evacuated his bowels into the porcelain splendour of the Armitage Shanks toilet bowl he had purchased from Blades club when they had carried out their last refurbishment in 76 He relished the thought of all of the characters who had once used the same seat, who had propped up the oak bar in the same establishment, where he had sipped many a fine Martini, made with Stolichnaya and the barest trace of Bond sat on the wooden seat, enjoying the sense of well used oak against his buttocks, as he evacuated his bowels into the porcelain splendour of the Armitage Shanks toilet bowl he had purchased from Blades club when they had carried out their last refurbishment in 76 He relished the thought of all of the characters who had once used the same seat, who had propped up the oak bar in the same establishment, where he had sipped many a fine Martini, made with Stolichnaya and the barest trace of Noilly Prat, served in a Reidel glass He turned, and noted with approval that May, his aged housekeeper, had purchased the correct brand of Kleenex Double Velvet toilet paper for him to clean his buttocks with, laid out next to the monogrammed Ferguson s hand towel, woven from the finest Irish linenApologies, the level of product placement isn t quite as bad as this, but it s pretty close It seems Bond cannot open a door on this novel without noting the brand of lock with approval I did wonder if we might start to get details of his favourite corn plasters The plot revolves around that tired saw of a criminal organisation that is so mysterious it is known only by its name And I am a bit worried that Bond relies on briefings in a visual library apparently compiled and narrated by Alan Whicker Although it seems to fit with the basic premise that Bond only goes on top secret missions to places where the local 5 hotel restaurant chef knows him by name Perhaps Judith Chalmers is actually M Still it all rattles along efficiently enough Although sex in a survival bag in a blizzard at an altitude to require supplementary oxygen is just plain stupid

    An interesting variant of the usual 007 story Serious mountain climbing plays a significant role The Bond Girl is still sexually available, but also independent and strong.

    Typical Bond romp complete with his satyriasis and saving the western world from a nefarious cabal.

    The best of the Benson Bonds At least so far Three down and three to go Half way there yeah, I m not counting the adaptations This opened like the other two Benson Bonds rather mediocre and almost clich It not that they re bad, there just wasn t much in their to make them feel original But this one hit a nice point where everything shifted and went in an interesting direction The second half was muchenjoyable and made me really want to jump input the next book in the series Th The best of the Benson Bonds At least so far Three down and three to go Half way there yeah, I m not counting the adaptations This opened like the other two Benson Bonds rather mediocre and almost clich It not that they re bad, there just wasn t much in their to make them feel original But this one hit a nice point where everything shifted and went in an interesting direction The second half was muchenjoyable and made me really want to jump input the next book in the series This is what the best Fleming and Gardner Bonds did Hopefully the last three original Bonds by Benson will match the quality of the second half of this one As a personal note Has anyone else noticed that Donald Trump acts and talks like a stereotypical megalomanic villain in a James Bond film

    I love the old James Bond and I ve somewhat enjoyed the other authors who continue the series But personally, I think they should go back to writing about Bond in the 1960 s Some of the Bond mentality just doesn t fit today s age.As far as Benson goes, High Time To Kill is a decent read, just not great I felt the story lagged at times, but I did like aspects of the setting, putting Bond in a unique situation.

    After finishing my third of the six James Bond novels by Raymond Benson, I have to say that I m sad that there won t bethan six I have thoroughly enjoyed each one of these books they re definitely better than the John Gardner ones, and I would venture on the edge of blasphemy and say they re even better than the original Ian Fleming stories Benson knows how to tell a crisp, clear story without being too technical, yet at the same time giving the reader a sense of thrill and adventure After finishing my third of the six James Bond novels by Raymond Benson, I have to say that I m sad that there won t bethan six I have thoroughly enjoyed each one of these books they re definitely better than the John Gardner ones, and I would venture on the edge of blasphemy and say they re even better than the original Ian Fleming stories Benson knows how to tell a crisp, clear story without being too technical, yet at the same time giving the reader a sense of thrill and adventure.These books are essentially nothing like the movies The movies show James Bond as a suave sophisticated bon vivant, that never seems to break a sweat even if he s sledding down a snow covered mountain in a cello case The literary Bond is muchrealistic after he fights off some thugs, this Bond actually has to go to the hospital for cracked ribs and a bruised kidney I doubt any lover of the movies would be disappointed, however, at least with Benson s bond Plus, there are still the familiar characters Moneypenny, M now a woman, just like the movies , Q, and Tanner Had Benson created his own unique character other than James Bond along with a strong supporting cast, it still would have worked The books are simply that good.The one thing that is similar between the two Bond mediums is sex Sex, sex, sex It can be a bit much sometime When Bond is getting ready to go on a mountaineering rescue mission about halfway through this story, the author quickly describes the team for us and casually tells us that the team consists of one female So you already know what s going to happen Then, when the noted female she s a ravenous blonde doctor exposes her breasts towards Bond at one point in the frigid below zero temperature and later confesses to him that she became to doctor to overcome her addiction to sex , well, it s a bit much, and you tend to roll your eyes.Still, though, it s an exciting ride Without going into the plot, the majority of this story takes places on a rescue mission to the top of the third largest mountain in the world I forget its name So, there s a lot of intense mountain climbing, bad guys that are really good, good guys that are really bad, a lot of mysterious shootings, not enough oxygen, and let s not forget the oversexed doctor.Benson has stated that this book was his favorite I don t know if I would rank it as my favorite of the three that I have read so far, but like his other two, he gets an A from me Nice work 007

    Four novels into his tenure at the Bond scribe, Benson finally hits his stride and delivers a stream lined and taught thriller obviously influenced by The Eiger Sanction His handling of Bond s love encounters, however, is still clunky as if a middle school kid who has just discovered his dad s stash of adult magazines decides to start writing sexual fan fiction and there are a few groan worthy moments of film styled one liners which work great on the Silver Screen, but fall flat on the pag Four novels into his tenure at the Bond scribe, Benson finally hits his stride and delivers a stream lined and taught thriller obviously influenced by The Eiger Sanction His handling of Bond s love encounters, however, is still clunky as if a middle school kid who has just discovered his dad s stash of adult magazines decides to start writing sexual fan fiction and there are a few groan worthy moments of film styled one liners which work great on the Silver Screen, but fall flat on the page , and he has a villain quote the title of the book in the final act really, dude But overall, this is a solid yarn that is compelling and page turning

    Just to be clear, this is 5 stars not because it s the Greatest Novel Ever Written, but because it gives you exactly what you want a fun, riotous James Bond story, complete with a ridiculous plot and an evenridiculous sex scene Car chases, gun battles, a unique Bond story unlike any else, you definitely get what you paid for with this book It was also refreshing to read a modern Bond novel not rampant with racism like the Fleming books, classic they may be High Time to Kill was a vast Just to be clear, this is 5 stars not because it s the Greatest Novel Ever Written, but because it gives you exactly what you want a fun, riotous James Bond story, complete with a ridiculous plot and an evenridiculous sex scene Car chases, gun battles, a unique Bond story unlike any else, you definitely get what you paid for with this book It was also refreshing to read a modern Bond novel not rampant with racism like the Fleming books, classic they may be High Time to Kill was a vastly entertaining read and I look forward to the second book of the trilogy
