  • Interesting results and great to see what real Fleming aficionados think.
    That said, the only thing that really surprises me in the rankings thus fare is that YOLT ranks ahead of DN.

    There's a lot of MR love on here. For me although the book is well written...The UK based plot is less larger than life and exotic than many others. However, voting wise, it may well win.
  • Final update of all the polls for today :-O. Sjee, it's a lot of work. But one has to have some passion for its hobby no ;-). 31 people have casted their ballots. And here is the ranking so far. As you can see, a VERY close race between "FRWL" and "OHMSS":

    Surprised Goldfinger is so high. I was under the impression it was one of the less popular novels.

    Me too. I never really gotten into it. The whole plot where Auric uses Bond as an employee.....for me is too farfetched.

    Hah, what a goof, I forgot to include Casino Royale in my list! Shame on me!

    It should be placed in between From Russia and Moonraker, but oh well, my vote has been cast, not much to do.

    Another myth that is perpetuated by a very small and very vocal crowd.
