Who is Carl Hiaasen?

American journalist, Carl Hiaasen became a novelist by the late 1970s, writing novels in his spare time. He writes books for adults and but also for young-adult readers—and two of his novels made into films: Striptease with Demi Moore and Hoot with Luke Wilson, Logan Lerman, and Brie Larson. 

Most of Carl Hiaasen’s novels—the ones for adults—are crime thrillers set in Florida featuring eccentric characters and (most of the time) talking about environmentalism and political corruption. They are humorous books that often satirize American popular culture. Also, Hiaasen is a talented fly fisherman!

James Bond - Books in Order

James Bond Books in Order: How to read Ian Fleming’s series?

  • Carole 

His name is Bond. James Bond.

Who is James Bond?

If you lived under a rock during the past 50 years, you maybe haven’t heard about the famous Bond. James Bond. Created by the British novelist Ian Fleming in 1953, James has been immortalized on the big screen by Sean Connery, David Niven, George Lazenby, Roger Moore, Timothy Dalton, Pierce Brosnan, and Daniel Craig. The handsome secret agent, and maybe the least discreet agent working for Her majesty, enjoys food, drinking, smoking, cars, and women — in no order in particular. He fights rich megalomaniac and evil organizations and saves regularly the world.

It is said that women want him, men want to be him. James is not the most respectful human being on this earth, but with time some of his traits have been diminished on screen, like his more than questionable treatment of women and his smoking habits. He is, no doubt about, one of the most famous spy ever, fictional or not, still living new adventures on screen, and even on paper, more than fifty years after the publication of Ian Fleming’s last book about him. Let’s explore James Bond’s bibliography!
