Welcome back to Her Majesty’s Secret Podcast! The Boys of Bond-age are back again with an all new episode.

200px-IcebreakerFirstThis week, we tackle and little Gardening… John Gardner to be precise. We read and review 4 out of John Gardner’s first 5 James Bond novels (one was reviewed in an earlier episode). We talk about Gardner’s writing style, the plots, the characters and the overall readability of the books.

Starting with his first 007 book, Licence Renewed, we talk about Gardner’s vision of the “80’s Bond” and how he stacks up to the 60’s bond of the Fleming novels. We then discuss his third, fourth, & fifth books; Icebreaker, Role Of Honour, and Nobody Lives Forever.

Listen to find out which of these books we would recommend, and which we would only wish on our worst enemy!
