James Bond – You Only Live Twice – by Ian Fleming

The twelfth book in Ian Fleming’s James Bond series. It holds the distinction of being the last novel by Fleming to be published in his lifetime. You Only Live Twice is the final chapter in the “Blofeld Trilogy”.

The story begins after the murder of Bond’s wife, Tracy, by ‘Ernst Stavro Blofeld’, which occurred at the end of the previous story and on their Wedding Day. Bond begins to drink and gamble and is making mistakes in his assignments and is sent to Japan on a diplomatic mission. He is asked by the Head of the Japanese Secret Service to kill Dr. Guntram Shatterhand. Bond realises that Shatterhand is ‘Ernst Stavro Blofeld’ and sets out on a revenge mission to kill him and his wife, Irma Bunt.

The novel deals with the change in Bond from a depressed man in mourning, to a man of action bent on revenge. Through the characters, Fleming also examines the decline of post-World War II British power and influence.

James Bond – The Living Daylights by Ian Fleming

From “Octopussy and The Living Daylights” the fourteenth and final James Bond book written by Ian Fleming. The book is a collection of these 2 short stories published in June 1966. This story is the latter.

James Bond is assigned to safeguard British agent 272 in his crossing into West Berlin by eliminating a top KGB assassin code named “Trigger” who has been dispatched to kill him. Bond takes up a position on the edge of the border. In a hotel overlooking the no man’s land of broken, brightly lit ground that 272 will have to cross, he sees a female orchestra arrive for rehearsal and leave, taking particular notice of a beautiful blonde cellist. Once 272 starts to cross the border, Bond sees Trigger get in position to kill him and realizes that it is the beautiful blonde cellist. He adjusts his aim at the last moment and shoots her rifle instead of her, allowing 272 to reach safety.

Afterward, Bond admits to his spotter that he did not try for a kill shot only because Trigger had been a woman. He muses that even though 272 is safe, the mission will be considered a failure because he did not kill Trigger. He hopes that M will fire him for it.
