I totally agree with the other reviewer. Extremely upset and disappointed. They did a terrible job of actually describing what I was getting - I just wanted to read Ian Fleming’s first James Bond book, instead I got a comic book version ... there is no way you would know that that is what the book was from the description. I just wasted $14+ and now need to go to Amazon.com and order it. Ridiculous.
This is not a novel, but more of a comic book. Don't buy if you were expecting a novel. Disappointed.
