I haven't actually finished the book, but I'm still going to write a review.

The book is about a boy whos parents died, and he has to go to a school, and later in the book he is trying to figure why is a person I forgot his name, but he wants to find out why a character has been missing. 


I can't actually explain why I like this book. It may be, because of how it may be about something very mundane, but it is very intresting. The plot is intresting because there is conflict between James Bond, and George Hellebore you sometimes forget about it, but there is conflict. It is also interesting, because there is always something happening in the book, which makes it even more intresting. The part in which I stopped was the part that felt a lot like filler which was very boring.

I really think you should consider reading this book, because you would get what you payed for or got from the library.

This is a book which should be read as a supplement to the masterful 007 series. The plot was Okay and so were the characters but really who can resist a James Bond book with all the action [and girls] of the original series. This has to be the best 'kids' james bond there is.

young James Bond in his first adventure. In this adventure, he faces people and eels with super human strength. Will he survive his encounter?

The best part of this book was...
the way it's written. It keeps you on the edge of your seat. The chapters and their titles keep you interested throughout the whole book.
This book is similar to...
teenage spy books like Alex Rider series. Or, simply enjoy thrillers.
The best place to read this book is...
in bed at night. For it would give you the creeps. However, if you can't, simply read it in a chair.
The soundtrack of this book should be...
like the 007 theme song, for after all, it is young James Bond.
