Book Description:

Octopussy and The Living Daylights is a short story collection by Ian Fleming. It was collected and published after Fleming's death. The book is very short and only contains four stories. "Octopussy" Is a story about a former British officer who is now in retirement. All seems to be well until a man named Bond shows up and exposes an old crime. "The Living Daylights" has Bond using his skills as a sniper to protect a spy who is trying to escape from East Berlin. In "Property of a Lady" Bond has to trap a mole inside the office. Finally in "007 in New York" Bond spends an evening in the Big Apple.

The stories are short and are not exactly his best work. Fleming was a great writer of novels. His novels were never long, almost all coming in at under 200 pages. Somehow that format better fits his style. "Octopussy" is an interesting morality tale of murder and greed. "The Living Daylights" is an interesting story because it shows Bond at odds with his duties as a 00 agent. The other two stories are below par for Fleming's work. Overall the two title stories are alright. If you want to own all of Fleming's Bond Books then you will need to get this book. Don't make it your first Bond book though.
