Moonraker by Ian Fleming

August 17, 2012

Moonraker, the James Bond film, is a black mark on 007's film history--a shameless Star Wars rip-off that takes Bond to the final frontier. But in the original Ian Flemming novel, Moonraker is a much more Earthbound tale pitting Bond against Drax, a nuclear arms manufacturer. 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 Moonraker.
