My Take

I barely got started, only up to page 37, and I can’t read anymore. It’s driving me bats with all the information dumps, all the telling, and worst of all, Bond is treating me like I’m six years old and need to be informed of every frigging little detail. Gawd. Spare me.

Bond is writing up this latest mission as though it were some heavy-duty, top secret, way dangerous adventure that has to be on the hush-hush. Well parts of that are true…-ish. I assume that if I were to persevere and struggle further, I’d finally find a reason for the melodrama, but I don’t want to waste my time.

The final straw was Mitchell’s heading down to meet up with Richards, and Bond is talking about how little space there is onboard. As if Mitchell is aboard a submarine for the first time in his life. MAJOR eye roll. Give. Me. A. Break.
