[ Pdf Shoot to Kill ↠´ sustainability PDF ] by Steve Cole º So, a full six years after Charlie Higson last wrote a Young Bond novel, and the story finally gets to continue at the hands of Steve Cole.
Cole is an author I ve never read before and nor should I have to be honest, thanks to his previous specialty being pre teen fiction But considering his limited experience writing in this genre and for this Young Adult age range, I was really surprised at how eloquently written parts of this book were Sure it s simple with a nice fast pace and elementary Bond story, but there s plenty of nice phrasing, descriptions and dialogue in here to offer muchthan just tributes to Fleming and Higson as you d expect LA gets a lavish description, from the burning neon of the lights to the smoky, dimly lit backstreets It s nice to read about Bond being somewhere different to the usual BEFORE THE MAN BECAME THE LEGENDFORE THE BOY BECAME THE MANET BOND JAMES BOND Young James Bond Is Back In His Most Action Packed, Explosive Adventure YetExpelled From Eton And Determined Never To Trust Again, James Bond S Plans For A Solitary Summer Are Dashed By The Discovery Of A Gruesome Film Reel A Reel Someone Is Willing To Kill ForTravelling From The English Countryside To Los Angeles, James Finds Himself Caught Up In A Sinister Plot Of Blackmail, Murder And Revenge That Goes Way Beyond Any Hollywood Gangster MovieHis Friends In Danger, His Life On The Line, James Must Find A Way OutOr Die TryingThe First Five books And Companion Novel In The Series Are Written By Charlie Higson, With The Rest Being Written By Steve Cole The Series Consists Of The Following Titles SilverFin Blood Fever Double Or Die Hurricane Gold By Royal Command Shoot to Kill Heads You Die Strike Lightning Red Nemesis Shoot to Kill by Steve Cole is the sixth Young Bond novel, but Mr Cole s first entry in the series For the uninitiated, Young Bond is the childhood adventures of James Bond 007 The first five books were written by Charlie Higson and for new readers that s where you should begin Shoot to Kill begins shortly after the events of By Royal Command and his expulsion from Eton Bond s aunt Charmaine sends her young charge to Darrington Hall while she is on an archeological dig James along with a group of students get selected to go to a school in America to compare curriculum Before that happens though, he s invited by a girl to come to there film group and in doing so see a film that could get them killed That is the basic premise that Cole uses as his catalyst for a fast paced action packed roller coaster adventur I was a little disapointed I was expecting better, after reading great teen spy series like Alex Rider and Jason Steed, this lacked speed, action and excitement It was little old fashioned, stiff upper lip The author tried to be Ian Fleming, FAIL We have possibly 4 great teen spy writers alive today and for some reason Steve Cole who writes Kids books was given Bond.
Okay, Anthony Horowitz Robert Mucha Mark A Cooper Eoin ColferOkay okay Anthony Horowitz is now writing the next adult Bond book, but he and the others listed are fantastic at writing Teen Spy Novels Steve Cole tried but it failed.
The story lacked teen antics, jokes, fun and wit That is what makes The Alex Rider series, Jason Steed Series, CHERUB series and Artemis Series so good and popular.

It was with some trepidation that I started this book, as having read every Bond book prior to this one, including all of the Charlie Higson Young Bonds, which got better with every book, I was wondering whether Steve Cole could move the character on.
I shouldn t have worried, as Steve Cole has continued where Charlie Higson left off, and has written a very good novel, which moves the character forwards from his Eton days, and has also delivered amature story to boot The villains are very earthy and are never too over the top, and some of the scenes of violence are very grown up.
Everybody knows when they pick these novels I can honestly say that it is not very often that I win any competitions, so thank you goodreads for my early release copy.

Everybody knows when they pick these novels While I had started the Young Bond series without much in the way of expectations, the Charlie Higson series was fantastic.
Steve Cole s Shoot to Kill is lackluster throughout I never really find myself caring much for the other characters in the story, which feels unnecessary in Bond s journey His stories at Eton felt like they really filled in gaps in his past and they had strong references to his preferences in vehicles and his parents, Hannes Oberhauser and the reason he fled Eton Shoot to Kill takes James to the United States for the first time and thrusts him into a story about a movie director who kills people and films it for kicks and power I just couldn t get into it like I wanted to.
There were a few satisfying moments and twists, yet many missed opportunities in the way of opportunities for Bond one liners or better character development.
3 s I found this very disappointing I really enjoyed the Charlie Higson Young Bond novels and for me, this was nowhere near on par Yes this was a different author, but had a completely different feel to the earlier books in the series It was a chore to read.
A great book none stopping action A good easy read, lacked something, but not sure what and perhaps slightly off its target readership.
This book was received for free through Goodreads first reads Thanks Many readers, including myself, were nervous about the handover of the Young Bond books from Charlie Higson to Steve Cole Higson s five books were superb, muchentertaining and faithful to the spirit of Ian Fleming than the so called adult Bond novels being published at the same time Devil May Care Ugh Could a new author maintain the magic that Higson created Cole certainly knew what he was up against, so on the very first page of Shoot to Kill he sends a signal to old school Bond fans that he knows his 007 The title of the prologue is You Asked for It When Casino Royale was first published as a paperback in the United States, an editor who didn t think Americans knew how to pronounce royale changed the title to You Asked for It As someone who sprinkled his I think it was a good book, it had lots of action, i would recommend this book if you like the James Bond films, it is the 1st book in an amazing trilogy, However the series was first written by a different author, under a different name, so it is actually around the 4 6th book in the series It was an exiting book full of romance action funny parts and exiting and sad parts It was a good ending don t want to spoil it Over all it was a good book, i would recommend it to all ages above 8 or 9.
