Perhaps an idea for another game...?  Baby Bond Quotes!


I'll have a Cow & Gate... shaken, not stirred.

Miss Anders! I didn't recognise you with your nappy on.

Now pay attention, 00.7 months, here is your new pram.

You put your clothes on and I'll buy you an ice cream.  (Oh, wait, that didn't need changed)

Do you expect me to talk? (Think about it...)

Re: Anthony Horowitz's Trigger Mortis (2015) Discussion Thread

I am going off tangent here, but I have been dipping into Alan Clarke's Diaries.

Alan Clarke was a Minister in Thatcher's Govt, under Tom King, Defence Minister. Clarke was an unPC Old Etonian with a maverick streak (aka a narcissist) who had an eye for the ladies, despite being married, and for outdoor sports and racing cars. A drinker, not a smoker, he found the bureaucracy of office life stultifying and much of the book is suffused with melancholy about his own life and the passing of the years. I mention all this because in his interesting philospophical observations of life, I found his Diaries very much like reading a Fleming Bond book, it is not so much the storyline but the way he alternates between excitement and sheer boredom, as well as railing against the jobsworths and pen pushers. But they don't seem to make them like that anymore.

Bond: Mr. Mathis, there's something that's been worrying me...
Mathis: Yes?
Bond: Well, you're a French police inspector, yet you speak with an Italian accent.
Mathis: Mamma mia, it worries me, too.

Enjoy Chris, I'm struggling to finish it, not due to any problem with the book, I have it on an e-reader and enjoying the read, but just don't seem to get chance much at the moment!

It was either that.....or the priesthood

I think it's one of the best continuing  novels.  ajb007/martini

Just recently downloaded the unabridged audio book of TM courtesy of my public library...now, when to actually have a good listen?!

Yes, I too find that to be a real problem with new books of all sorts these days! Just another annoying example of general dumbing down?!  ajb007/mad

Re: Anthony Horowitz's Trigger Mortis (2015) Discussion Thread

Thanks chrisno1, your reviews are always very well considered and illuminating. I think your experience with Trigger Mortis was similar to my own. Flawed, but as entertaining as any of the continuation novels with some sequences that were very enjoyable. Trigger Mortis is certainly my favourite continuation novel of any published after John Gardner's tenure.
