The Spy Who Loved Me is the ninth novel in Ian Fleming's James Bond series, first published by Jonathan Cape on 16 April 1962. It is the shortest and most sexually explicit of Fleming's novels, as well as a clear departure from previous Bond novels in that the story is told in the first person by a young Canadian woman, Vivienne Michel. Bond himself does not appear until two-thirds of the way through the book.

I was running away from England, from my childhood, from the winter, from a sequence of untidy, unattractive love-affairs, from the few sticks of furniture and jumble of overworn clothes that my London life had collected around me; and I was running away from drabness, fustiness, snobbery, the claustrophobia of close horizons, and from my inability, although I am quite an attractive. rat, to make headway in the rat-race. In fact I was running away from almost everything except the law. He kissed me gently and whispered that he loved me and that I was the most wonderful girl in the world

Home Ian Fleming The Spy Who Loved Me. He kissed me gently and whispered that he loved me and that I was the most wonderful girl in the world. But I sat up and away from him and dabbed at my eyes and tried to watch the film and reflected that I had lost my virginity, or some kind of virginity, and that now he would never respect me again. But then the interval came and he bought me ice cream and put his arm round the back of my chair and whispered that it was being the most wonderful day of his life and that we must have the same day over and over again.

Note: This review discloses some details about how the book ends (as usual the good guys win and the bad guys lose).

After just finishing rereading "Dr. No" and "From Russia with Love" I was ready for something different from Fleming, and this book certainly is that. The story is told with flashbacks from the perspective of the young French-Canadian woman Vivienne Michel. During the first part of the book Vivienne's character is well developed, with much more detail and nuance than for female characters in the other Bond books that I have read. I don't know whether a woman would find Vivienne's character credible, but I certainly did. In the middle of the book two gangsters show up at the deserted motel where Vivienne acts as temporary caretaker, and I found their characters to be completely credible and genuinely creepy. Up to this point the book is an excellent mystery of the "damsel-in-distress" type.

When James Bond shows up and the "action/adventure" portion of the book begins, I started to fell a little disappointed. The gunfight at the burning motel is stereotypic, and after the "bad guys" are suitably dispatched Bond and Vivienne head for the sack. Vivienne doesn't get the role of heroine here, but she does pretty well for someone who has been coshed earlier in the evening. Bond on the other hand is not at his best: why did he not think to have Sluggsy and Horror kneel before asking Vivienne to disarm them? Why did he ask her to move between him and the gangsters?

The contrast between how Vivienne and the other characters are handled highlighted a feature of the Bond books that I hadn't thought about when caught up in the action: Fleming's bad guys are a little cartoonish, sometimes resembling the villains that Dick Tracy had to contend with (e.g., Coffyhead, Flyface, Wormy Marron). Sluggsy and Horror are a little like that, but people like them still might plausibly jump out at you from a dark alley.

I was left wondering what would become of Vivienne. Was Bond really an improvement over Derek and Kurt? Is it her tragic flaw that she is doomed to a series of relationships with guys like that? The ending makes me wonder whether she will ever break out of this pattern.

The people giving this book a poor review (1-star? Really?) clearly aren't open to experimentation in writing. After the prior nine novels, where Bond is troubled, reckless, but ultimately an unstoppable force to the people around him, it's interesting to read a novel from someone else's perspective to see just how people view him. It's like reading a first hand account of someone who meets this whirlwind of a human, and it's fantastic. The first third of the novel functions as way to create an attachment to a regular young woman who will one day be on a collision course with 007. The second act raises the stakes and introduces the palpable threat of two psychotic thugs that pose a plausible threat to her (and Bond, for anyone who pays attention to the type of mortal danger these men represent). The third act introduces Bond in a very mythological sort of way, as he appears under cover of night to even the odds. Anyone who's read Bond novels before knows that even small time thugs are a threat to him because he isn't as cartoonishly calm and immortal as he is in the films. He's just more clever and better trained than others. Having low level crooks, rather than SPECTRE elite, be the foil makes sense because they would be to this woman, and Bond is uniquely suited to intervene. Her story is rather cliché, but nothing that wouldn't compose the plot of an indie or foreign romance story, and it's more impressive that it came from Fleming, who by this point had already devolved from a fairly progressive writer in the 50s to a downright misogynistic one in the 60s. Bond's still a white knight figure, and fairly two-dimensional here, but at least it makes sense being from someone else's perspective. In the handful of books prior, he went from being a complex character with very real and respectable views of women and the world around him, but by the 60s, he had become the woman smacking clown that appears in the films. The nature of the story redeems Fleming somewhat, in that he at least attempted to tell a woman's story where she wasn't just an object to be bedded, even if he falls back on his own trope of her ending up a (nigh) rape victim. Overall, it's a jarring, but welcome experience that is served tremendously by being read after all the prior novels build the myth that is literally displayed before this woman's eyes.

This was the second time I've read the book (the first being when I was in my mid-teens, many years ago). It's been interesting to see how attitudes and customs have changed and how they've stayed the same over the years. The thugs speak in slang common to the gangster movies of that era, and the attitudes towards women are quite accurate for that time. However, that too human feeling of being caught in a situation beyond one's control is just as universal now as when the book was written. Even though this is not anything like his other Bond books, I found the story just as enjoyable as when I read it the first time. Kudos to Mr. Fleming for trying something different.

This one is OK, but it definitely is NOT one of Ian Fleming's better James Bond novels (and I've read them all). The famed 007 doesn't show up until later in the story, his character is not as well-developed, there are none of the fantastic techno-gadgets or spy-craft of found in the other Bond novels, and frankly, the heroine of the story is kind of a pitiful lost soul; it's hard to root for her. It was a nice break from usual non-fiction reading fare, though.
