Review: Devil May Care

Jacob Allred

Just finished Devil May Care by Sebastian Faulks. Being a James Bond book, I wasn’t expecting a very deep plot and I was not disappointed. The entire premise of the book is ridiculous, and the “surprise” twist at the end was a bit contrived and unrealistic (even for a James Bond novel). The action scenes felt like they should have had “pow!” and “bang!” written in the margins. Maybe this will make a good movie (if the plot is strengthened a little), but as it is, I wouldn’t recommend reading it.
