James Bond

(On Topic: | Diana Princess Of Wales | James Bond | Zulu Rebellion | Index )

The name's Bond, James Bond ...the classic character. He's a bit of a misogynist but keeps on saving the world from certain doom. Daza's interest in the character was prompted by reading a copy of the novelization by Christopher Wood of Moonraker that was given to him by his Mother when he was about 12 years old. Space shuttles, fights on the top of cable cars, gadgets - it had it all. From there Daza moved onto the Ian Fleming novels and then the films, most of which he has only seen on video - some great, some not. Always worth a look though.
