review â Colonel Sun 106 S the globe to a volcanic Greek island where Colonel Sun Liang tan of the People's Liberation Army of China collaborates with an ex Nazi atrocity expert in a world mena. I d say 25 stars but I can t uite give it 3 The plot is somewhat uninspired Not bad just typical Bond and nothing too intriguing in the story Not bad and not a waste of time though with the audio I did find my mind wandering on occasion The villain Colonel Sun is fairly typical for an old school Bond villain but he s kinda cool He has a couple of sidekick sultry gorgeous women and an interesting torture techniue that made things a little interestingThe Bond girl Ariadne was pretty good but not a lot to write home about either as far as uniueness The reader on the audio was kinda blah Not horrible but some of his accents and voices were annoyingThis was written in 1968 as the first of the non Fleming novels published after his death Not bad but not particularly engaging Really this story would have probably been interesting if there weren t already a bunch of similar Bond novels and films out there even by 1968Perhaps the best part of this book was a glimpse into the Cold War at the time It s interesting how it was perceived then when you look back at how the world has changed so much over the years since
