From Russia With Love (James Bond 007) by Ian Fleming - A Review

From Russia With Love is Ian Fleming's fifth James Bond novel and it was published in 1957. 

I am slowly making my way through  the James Bond novels by the incredible Ian Fleming. This one was a little different from the previous ones because we got to see James Bond after page 130, which was a little odd. That of course didn't bother me and it didn't affect the way I enjoyed the book. 
It had all the classic James Bond tropes that I love and all the necessary adventures. It is full of action and intrigues. 

Rating: 4 Stars

Synopsis from Goodreads
James Bond is marked for death by the Soviet counterintelligence agency SMERSH in Ian Fleming’s masterful spy thriller.
SMERSH stands for ‘Death to Spies’ and there’s no secret agent they’d like to disgrace and destroy more than 007, James Bond. But ensnaring the British Secret Service’s most lethal operative will require a lure so tempting even he can’t resist. Enter Tatiana Romanova, a ravishing Russian spy whose ‘defection’ springs a trap designed with clockwork precision.
Her mission: seduce Bond, then flee to the West on the Orient Express. Waiting in the shadows are two of Ian Fleming’s most vividly drawn villains: Red Grant, SMERSH’s deadliest assassin, and the sinister operations chief Rosa Klebb-five feet four inches of pure killing power.

See you in the next post and don't forget to keep reading!!!
