We all know who he is thanks to that nifty little credit in the Bond films, but how many here have actually read his work?

I first picked up Casino Royale two years ago and I was incredibly impressed by its quality over the films. I gradually worked my way through the novels, my final conclusion being that not only did he create a wonderful character in James Bond, but also wrote possibly the best thrillers I have ever read. His style has far more flare than Forsyth, his plots and characters far more exciting than Le Carre (who to be honest I find pretentiously boring), the imagery is rich and vivid - everything seems to come to life.

Any fans? haters? Is he underrated? overrated? Discuss.

WHY THE HELL DID HE KILL VESPER?!

She was so hott and they had to kill her D=<!

I hate it when people kill the fanservice off!

But I guess then James Bond couldn't become the 00Pimp that he is and sack every girl he meets...
