Carte Blanche (007) is a Fantastic Modern Bond

Carte BlancheThis is not your parents’ James Bond. Jeffery Deaver brings 007 into modern times in Carte Blanche! Re-imagined as a 30 something veteran of the Afghan war, James Bond is a member of a new organization protecting a post 9/11 world.

Once I started reading I could not put this book down. The book read like a modern Bond movie with cool technology, exotic locales, interesting women, and fast cars. It is action packed and it shares my title of “Favorite Book of the Year” (an award I just made up) with Chronic City.

I am now going to have a hard time reading 007 novels that aren’t set in modern times. Side Note: The next book coming out, Solo, is set back in 1969. So if you like the recent James Bond movies you will love this book (which will hopefully be made into a movie).
