Oh, James: Fleming 'Diamonds are Forever'

‘Oh, James’ is a catchphrase from the Bond films, said by hot girls in breathy, sexy voices. When the love interest says it in ‘Diamonds are Forever’, she is disappointed. A bit like me, reading this book.

 

  • As critics have pointed out, the function of the Bond girl it to reflect Bond back to himself – she’s more a plot device than a character.

 

  • I found novel Bond repellent for precisely the same reasons film Bond is interesting.

 

  • Belsen? is there a prize for most inappropriate holocaust metaphor?
