As the Bond Watch Brands Elimination game is coming to an end, thanks for those who are still participating in the game.....

I've realized this would be an interesting choice for elimination games.

So for now, I will not include the continuation novels first for anyone to play, And I'm interested to see how the overall ranking of the Mi6Community would have looked like (though I'm not expecting it to be the most accurate).

After this, there'll be an elimination game for continuation novels (separate).....

Let's see which Bond novel would be eliminated first.....

Still same rules, but instead of 20 or 10 (too short), I've made it only 15 because it's too many.

Casino Royale: 15
Live And Let Die: 15
Moonraker: 15
Diamonds Are Forever: 15
From Russia With Love: 15
Doctor No: 15
Goldfinger: 15
For Your Eyes Only: 15
Thunderball: 15
The Spy Who Loved Me: 15
On Her Majesty’s Secret Service: 15
You Only Live Twice: 15
The Man With The Golden Gun: 15
Octopussy and The Living Daylights: 15

    I'm sorry that I won't participate in this one since I welcome all initiatives on games like that. But I have only read (besides the Fleming works) maybe four or five of the continuation novels, don't remember most of them, and don't feel I should judge 27 of them. It would be arbitrary and not fair.

    It's fine even if you've read just a few of them, you can upvote or downvote those books that you've read so far.

    It's fine, it's not necessarily that you've read them all, you can still join the game even if you've just read few of them. 😊

    Okay, I'm going to do Fleming books first 😊, the continuation novels would be later.

    Interesting to me that Goldfinger has had the brunt of the negative votes so far, I'd have thought TMWTGG would be the first out. Not that GF the novel is very good really, the improvements brought by the movie went a long way towards fixing the novel's missteps...

    Voting against any of these always hurts a bit, there’s some really exceptional stuff in there, but even the lesser ones are still very good reads.
