Book review - "Bond on Bond: Reflections on 50 Years of James Bond" by Roger Moore (2013)
I really enjoyed Roger Moore's memoirs, which felt very much written in his "voice" - this one doesn't, which is a shame. There are some good bits, which really feel like an inside look at the series, but for the most part it feels like a stock retread of facts that most serious Bond fans already know. Maybe I'm trying to make the book into something it was never meant to be - but why else do it? It's good natured and affectionate like you'd expect any book to be with Moore's name attached.
