Thoughts on finishing On Her Majesty's Secret Service - RonO's Ramblings

Feb. 20th, 2008 01:11 pm Thoughts on finishing On Her Majesty's Secret Service

This afternoon, just after leaving for work after my exam and lunch, I finished On Her Majesty's Secret Service. After this I had a couple of quick thoughts.

First, I have to agree with an assessment I heard sometime back. Of the Bond books I've read (I've been working my way through, but am on hold at the moment since I somehow forgot to get a copy of You Only Live Twice), the movie of On Her Majesty's Secret Service is the closest adaptation. However, Thunderball is a close second.

Second, during the final chapter -- and I won't go into more details on the off chance you've neither seen the movie nor read the book and would want to some day -- I kept hearing the song "We Have All the Time in the World" starting. Mostly because Bond says this line several times. In fact it is the last line of dialog in the book (and movie).
