Auric Goldfinger- cruel, clever, frustratingly careful. A cheat at Canasta and a crook on a massive scale in everyday life. The sort of man James Bond hates. So it's fortunate that Bond is the man charged by both the Bank of England and MI5 to discover what this, the richest man in the country intends to do with his ill-gotten gains - and what his connection is with SMERSH, the feared Soviet spy-killing corps. But once inside this deadly criminal's organization, 007 finds that Goldfinger's schemes are more grandiose - and lethal - than anyone could have imagined. Not only is he planning the greatest gold robbery in history, but mass murder as well...… (mehr)

The plot of Goldfinger is excellent and has many challenges that Bond must puzzle his way out of. Goldfinger himself is one of the most interesting Bond villains so far.

Having said that, I also think that the movie version is the only one so far that improves on the book. The ending is much cleaner in the movie and improves on some minor plot details.

Like all Bond books, this one contains sexism and, in this book, some racism against Asians. This is also the first book with gay characters and there are some passages that haven't aged well with regard to that.

Overall, the Bond of Goldfinger is a harder, less vulnerable, and more stereotypically masculine secret agent than that of Dr. No, which happens to be my favorite book so far.

I also want to touch on the female characters of Bond. As I've commented in previous reviews, I find it interesting that yet another female character has a history of sexual assault or rape. That's at least 3 out of 7 books so far that use this as a way of characterizing women and explaining their reluctance around men.

I've come to think that Fleming uses that as a way to "prove" Bond's virility. To Bond, women are a conquest and if he can convert a lesbian or convince a woman who has been assaulted to let down her guard, then he has accomplished quite a feat. As Ms. Galore said, "I'd never met a man before", until Bond, that is.

I am slowly making my way through the Ian Fleming Bond books and this was the next one up (number 7). I am working through them slowly because so far I have enjoyed all of the them and I don't want the end to come too soon. Goldfinger is one of my favourite Bond movies and I think is widely regarded as one of the best ones despite the some times far fetched story line. As is usual, the movie story line deviates from the book and in one particular case I think that the approach taken by the movie is better.

I find that reading one of the Bond books is like slipping into an old comfortable jumper on a cold day. Everything feels familiar and I know that I can rely on the book to deliver. The characters are well formed, probably in no small part due to the movies, and the exchanges between the characters are very well written. Due to the time period in which the books were written there is a sexist element and very superior British attitude at times but the same can be said of the movies. I never have an issue with these things as long as they are in context and appropriate for the time.

I really enjoyed the book and my only minor grumble is down to the ebook version which I read. I suspect that some OCR software had been used because there were some typos which looked very much like OCR errors. ( )

Solid. A fantastic book, especially considering it's the origin of probably my favorite of the Connery films (which, excepting the new Casino Royale, I'd put head and shoulders above all the others). There's a lot more going on here than in the book, and it's a real treat.

The thing that struck me here, though, and in the others I've read this past couple weeks, is how very tame they are by modern standards, especially sexually. There are suggestions of what's going to happen after the stories end, the occasional hard kiss, but nothing _happens_ between Bond and the women he meets. So not what I was expecting, but it does not in any way detract from the book. Great fun. ( )

4.5 stars perhaps. One of the best in the series, so far. ( )

This is my favorite Bond book so far out of the 7 I have read. Goldfinger is an amazing villain with a very unique personality. I enjoyed the travels through France and Switzerland. 4.6 ( )
