Book Club - For Your Eyes Only

mi6cafebookclubfinal (1).png

Welcome to book club! Get your drinks, snacks, and any notes you have, and gather around for the whole book discussion on For Your Eyes Only! (If you're here and you're not sure where to find the book, check the resources post in the sidebar on the right!) For Your Eyes Only is a short story collection, and for this post we're discussing the whole book, with an emphasis on the last two stories, Risico and The Hildebrand Rarity.

Book club is designed to be a place where you can go beyond the Bond movies and delve into another medium with our favorite secret agent. We have questions to help get things started, but there are no set discussions. If you have anything interesting that you want to discuss about your reading experience, comments on the text, or thoughts about how reading the book might have changed your view on the characters in the movies, then do share!

Questions to get us started:
1) What was most memorable about Risico for you?
2) Am I imagining it, or was the Risico story incorporated into the plot of the last Bond movie we watched, which also included Judy with her arrows?
3) The Hildebrand Rarity was one of Fleming's less typical Bond stories. Did you enjoy the departure, or miss the action?

4) What did you think of this short story collection in general?

This is the whole-book post, and as such it's a spoiler-friendly zone!

Happy discussing!
