Danger Society: The Young Bond Dossier

This book contains much information about the young years of a boy called James Bond. James Bond once lived with his parents in a village until his parents died in an accident on a mountain hike. James was then forced to live with his aunt. He then went to a boarding school in London called Eton. This school had many rules and traditions. In the beginning James felt uneasy at Eton, but was later chosen to be part of a secret society which meant breaking some school rules and sneaking out. But James was too clever and managed to get out easily. James also had to conquer many villains on his holidays. He also met many people who helped him solve every problem during his missions (including both boys and girls). It also talks about gadgets and cars. This book was fantastic in so many different ways because it contained many pieces of information, it was interesting and he travelled to many different destinations. Although I like the James Bond movies in this case I prefer the book. I really hope that I will be able to read more books about his life and about his missions. Noemie


  1. This novel sounds really interesting and adventurous. It makes me want to shoot off to the book store to purchase it.

  2. @ Noémie -> I think it's great that the James Bond stories are being adapted for a younger audience too. Well done for your review. And look, already James wants to read it!

    @ James -> Hello, so far away! I hope the move has gone well! Write to us.

  3. WOW sounds like a great story. Because i am into story's when peoples mum and dad have died. and very interesting.

  4. @ Seth -> That's interesting, "stories when people's mum and dad have died"... There are a lot of them. Often an author wants there to be just children in the story. Sometimes he wants to introduce loneliness or sadness. I'm trying to think of examples... James and the Giant Peach, by Roald Dahl. Alex Rider...
