A joy to hear – Dr No

I read Dr No when I was in form 2 in 1978. Hearing it read out by an excellent reader gives a new dimension of enjoyment after so many years have passed.

This novel is famous for its opening assassination scene, involving 3 blind men walking in a single file. There is also an interesting discussion between M, OO7 and the armourer Major Boothroyd between the advantages of 007 using a Beretta and a Walther PPK. This is indeed a fine acquisition to any admirer of Ian Fleming ‘s James Bond series, even if one won’t have the sensory sensation of seeing Ursula Andress emerging from the sea in her now-iconic white bikini, with apology to Homer Foon.
