FRWL is a classic espionage tale but in YOLT, Fleming aims for something much different and writes Bond into something much more mythic and elaborate.

NOTE: This applies only to the KINDLE version and not the story!!

The Kinlde version appears to be simply a compilation of page-by-page image files. It is UNREADABLE on my Kindle and cannot be resized! In the online app, the print/image quality is horrible, unreadable, and again ... cannot be resized. When I attempted to return for a refund, I got a message that said "item ineligible for refund."

Thanks a lot Amazon. A totally unreadable piece of c r a p for which you will not let me return.
For many reasons, I consider this the last of the series. Fleming didn't finish "The Man With The Golden Gun" and was ill when writing the rough draft that was left behind at his death. It was simply awful, especially given Cmdr. Fleming's own experience with British Intelligence.
"You Only Live Twice" finds Bond in a slump, unable to recover from the murder of his wife of only a few hours on their honeymoon. He's been eased back into work, but has literally made a mess of 2 missions and M is seriously considering revoking his Double-O status.
The Service consulting physician is fond of 007, and suggests an alternative. He states a man of Bond's psychological makeup cannot rise unless he is challenged against overwhelming odds, so he suggests giving him a literally impossible mission to accomplish and free reign to do it.
Unlike the usual assassination assignments, Bond is asked to travel to Japan and make contact with the head of the Japanese Intelligence Service, a mysterious man of which little is known other than his name; Tiger Tanaka. This is to be primarily a diplomatic mission, and he is to offer to trade British Intelligence resources & information in exchange for the treasure trove of Japan's Russian spy network. It is thought highly unlikely Japan will work with the British and will be a coup if Bond pulls it off. Bond accepts, and begins his adventure to the Far East; another routine assignment with more than meets the eye, scores settled with Ernst Blofeld, ninja training, and a second chance at life.
The final Bond book by Fleming to be published in his lifetime, You Only Live Twice ties with From Russia With Love as my favorite of his novels. FRWL is a classic espionage tale but in YOLT, Fleming aims for something much different and writes Bond into something much more mythic and elaborate. Written after the hit Bond films were released, Fleming writes his most cinematic book, full of elaborate detail and outlandish concepts such as Bond training to be a ninja, a villain decked out in samurai armor, and a "Castle of Death" built on a volcano, filled with poisonous flora and fauna, a theme park of sorts for the suicidal and a grim setting none of the films have attempted to bring to life.

The book is a character-driven story that sees Bond grow from a broken failure of an agent to a man with a purpose and a will to live again under the tutelage of Tiger Tanaka when he is, as a last resort before firing him, given a mission that MI6 deems impossible. The theme of death and rebirth is used throughout much of the book with Bond himself being reborn numerous times but the book never repeats itself or grows stale and in its final third is impossible to put down.

Unlike many of the films, Bond is a fascinating character and a flawed man and as outlandish as the story may grow Fleming ties it together with a strong dose of humanity and tragedy. The book goes places I never saw coming and is not once predictable. At one point the villain claims to have reduced Bond to "human dimensions." Fleming however does just the opposite and makes Bond a mythic figure and a hero for the ages.
In his last adventure James Bond met with the greatest tragedy of his life. He was able to destroy the base of his enemy Blofeld, but his foe escaped. Then within only a few hours of getting married, Blofeld struck back and Bond's new bride was killed. Back in London Bond has let himself go. He is drinking too much and his mind is not on the game. He was nearly killed when he botched a mission. M believes that he may have to let James go. He is advised to give Bond a task that is impossible, but not dangerous. M decides to promote Bond to the diplomatic mission and send his to Japan. His job is to meet with M's counterpart in Tokyo and try to get access to the Russian signals that the Japanese are decoding. The Japanese have a special relationship with the Americans and they are reluctant to share with others. Bond now has to learn the ins and outs of the Japanese culture in order to win over this reluctant ally. That turns out to be the least of his problems. The Japanese have their own trouble in the form of a foreigner who has created a bizarre landscape full of creatures and plants that kill. The suicide culture of Japan has embraced this new place and it is causing embarrassment to the government. There is nothing legal that can be done, but someone with Bond's particular skills may be able to deal with this in his own way. Bond accepts the trade and is soon involved with an enemy that he knows all too well. He has to pull himself together if he is to survive this mission. The ending is quite a surprise. More great Cold War spy pulp from the great Ian Fleming.
The old Bond is back! No more American gangsters. Well SPECTRE is back and the old Bond is hiding in a bottle. This is part of the SPECTRE sub-series and should be read in order after "Thunderball and "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" it is not vital, but will help eliminate any spoilers.

The action in this book is minimal; Fleming takes his time building a Zen garden like picture of Japanese culture after the war. Bond is different too, he mopes and wallows after Tracy's death and is not the same as we have seen in earlier works. This is one case where the movie was so vastly different from the film that the two don't compare which is just fine with me.
Forgot how elegant and simple was Flemings works.. James Bond is a man not a cartoon figure and the book is way better than the movie. This was the last book that Fleming wrote before he died. The man with the golden gun was published after his death but was unfinished and uneven
