I have mixed feelings about this book. I didn’t really take much of it in, but it was an enjoyable enough read for what it was. Fleming himself never took it particularly seriously, but it sold well enough when it was first released and there was even talk of turning it into a movie.
The book is basically a short, journalistic piece based on a series of interviews that Fleming held with a diamond smuggler. It’s interesting in its way, but it’s not as purely entertaining as his Bond novels. It’s only really worth reading if you’re a big fan of his or if you’re really into diamonds. It’s your call.
