Sebastian Faulks’ hugely successful James Bond novel, Devil May Care, has clung to its number one spot in the UK, reports theBookseller.com.
In its second week of release, booksellers sold 27,842 copies of the centenary novel, just 17 more than the week’s number two title, Kate Morton’s The Forgotten Garden.
Last week, CommanderBond.net reported that Devil May Care was Penguin’s bestselling hardback fiction title of all time, shifting 44,093 copies in its opening week.
In the United States, however, sales have slipped more substantially. K1Bond007 reports Devil May Care slipped 20 places to #56 on USA Today’s bestseller list.
On other charts, it performed more admirably. The New York Times pegs Devil May Care at #11 (down from #8), while the Chicago Tribune places it in ninth place (down one spot from last week).
The results make Devil May Care the most successful James Bond continuation novel in years.
