1. CBn Reviews Young Bond Book 1: 'SilverFin'

    By The CBn Team on 2005-03-05

    Today CBn offers readers not one but three reviews of Young Bond Book 1: SilverFin by Charlie Higson. One review is by a 16-year-old Bond fan, another by a 40-year-old Bond fan and yet another from a 31-year-old Bond fan who is an old Etonian. Equal in their passions for 007, but clearly of three distinct perspectives. Does SilverFin reach all brand of James Bond fans? Read & find out:

    Touchy. Feely. Eely.
    A PUZZLED review by Jacques Stewart
