The book is nothing like the movie which is exciting in many ways because I had no idea what was going to happen, sadly the book takes way way WAY too much time on Japanese culture before it gets to Bonds true mission. I did thoroughly enjoy experiencing Bonds softer side and the climax was excellent just be aware it has its short comings.
This is my 12th book of Fleming's Bond series and my favorite. I was born and raised in Japan, and most books and movies that take place in Japan annoy me because the country and the culture are almost always inaccurately depicted. This book is different. Except for the amas swimming naked, descriptions are accurate and not exaggerated. I wonder if Fleming lived in Japan for a while.
