    1. The first of the Moneypenny diaries was already great fun to read and actually did deliver a far better story than any of the James Bond continuation writers had delivered. This 2nd volume of this series does an even better job. As 007 plays only a marginal role in this installment. This is when 007 has dissapeared after his final meeting with Blofeld in Japan and untill he returns and tries to kill M. He spends time in a hospital before he gets send out to the caribean to kill a certain Scarama [...]





    2. The second volume of The Moneypenny Diaries covers the period from the end of Ian Fleming’s You Only Live Twice until after the end of The Man with the Golden Gun; and in real life, Kim Philby’s defection to Moscow from Beirut and the assassination of JFK. If you are a Bond fan - like me - then this is a good read: if you are a female Bond fan - unlike me - then this book is a must read. Once again, Miss Moneypenny turns out to have been much more than just M’s devoted secretary; but a loy [...]


    3. This is a roller coaster spy story based on Ian Flemming's characters in his series about James Bond. Miss Moneypenny's diaries were inherited by her niece who is a historian. The niece prepared the diaries for publication despite being warned off by MI5. So there are two stories. Miss Moneypenny's account of working for MI5 and the niece's story of publishing the diaries and realising that there was a double agent at work in the 60's who was never caught. Can the Niece work out who it is? You c [...]


    4. The 2nd of 3 in the Moneypenny Series. Still not released in the US, but I found them in the UK last month and brought them all back with me! The story continues with Jane Monepenny taking on more of a spy roll within MI6 and her experiences are exciting! I always thought the Bond movies from the 60's and 70's were incredibly cheesy and ridiculousbut now I see that they perfectly mimicked the books that they were made from, and reading it is just plain fun!


    5. I really enjoyed this book, more so than the first in the series, "Guardian Angel". The book covers the period in the Ian Fleming books from You Only Live Twice until The Man with the Golden Gun.A good, fun book that focuses more on the female staff of MI6. Miss Moneypenny is much more than M's secretary


    6. I like these, but I'm a sucker for James Bond and spies. And the Cold War. I lisetned to the first two (and have the third) as audiobooks and the narrator does a good job. Too bad there are only three, but maybe she's written others?!


    7. This book was really, really fun. I'm converted and plan on reading the rest in the series. I expected it to read like Chick Lit, but that was not the feeling at all. It's actually rather dense. I would recommend this book for male and female Bond fans!



    8. I can see why this was in a bargain box at Borders for $2. Got mildly interesting after about 200 pages, but that soon disappeared. Wouldn't bother.
