Nice One, Charlie

Guardian Unlimited Books | Review | James Bond's schooldays

Philip Ardagh says, "Nice one, Charlie" - apropos the new book about Bond's schooldays, Silverfin by Charlie Higson:


This is a most enjoyable, well-written book which is well worth a read even if you're not a James Bond fan. There are a few in-jokes (the "female interest", Wilder Lawless, has a horse called Martini, for example), but Higson is sparing with these and very skilfully melds the known elements of Bond's childhood with those of his own invention. In SilverFin, Higson gives us that little extra something ... in much the same way that, say, a bay leaf does to a bolognese sauce. Nice one, Charlie.
