Most people were introduced to James Bond in Dr. No, the first Bond feature film. However, Dr. No was Ian Fleming's sixth Bond novel, picking up after the author had seemingly killed the super-spy in the previous book. Much like the film, Dr. No is working with Russians to disrupt American rocket tests. But is the truism that the book is always better the case, or No? As part of James Bond's 50th Anniversary, the podcast Now Playing is reviewing all of the James Bond films and we at Books & Nachos are looking at all of Fleming's original Bond novels and short stories. In this episode, join Stuart as he reads and reviews Dr. No.
