Heads You Die (Young Bond, #7) Reviews

  • Andrew Farley

    3.5 stars.Action packed, but has its ups and downs.James is still weary of using guns, but there was some key commentary on it in this book. James makes a point to declare that he will never shoot someone in cold blood, and a villain declares James will shoot people. This is very important because up to this point the only gun young Bond would consider is a pop-gun. As we go through the books he is learning that sometimes it is a necessity, and seeing that growth is a lot of fun. So if he's not [...]

  • R.W. Mitchell

    Not my favourite one of the series. A few entertaining parts but this time the pace was too slow and the characters weren't as entertaining as usual. Must try harder Bond!

  • Carson

    When I read a 007 novel, I need it to stand out in the canon to really merit its existence in the mythos. Some are really good at this - like Fleming's (of course), Raymond Benson's, a couple of Gardner's and some of the Young Bond's. This one was good but not great - it played it safe, did not leave an impression on me I couldn't live without, and the characters and story were average. The story had a lot of potential; the title is strong, the villain and the villain's motive/ mechanism of evil [...]

  • Bill Lynas

    I wanted to like this novel, I really did. Steve Cole's second Young Adult James Bond novel starts well, with an action packed opening. In fact there's plenty of action throughout the story, but unfortunately the more that the novel progresses the duller it gets. I appreciate that it has been written for teenagers, but having read many YA novels over the years this is by far the weakest. OK, it's not the worst 007 novel ever (in my opinion that position is held by William Boyd's Solo), but it sa [...]

  • Martyn Perry

    This is another Bond adventure which is enjoyable enough, yet doesn't match the quality of the Higson adventures.Readable, packed with action, yet far too lightweight to be fully appreciable as an adult reader. Where Higson had the balance and appeal sorted equally for young and old, Cole unashamedly aims straight for the twelve year olds with not enough depth to satisfy fully.

  • Jack Lugo

    Heads You Die is the 7th novel in the Young Bond series and the second book written by Steve Cole after Charlie Higson’s monumental first five novels in the series. This book picks up right after Cole’s last offering, Shoot to Kill, where Bond thwarted a dangerous Hollywood blackmail scheme. James (about 14 or 15) and his new school friend Hugo, a 16-year-old fellow student afflicted with dwarfism, are now in Cuba staying with family friend of Aunt Charmian, Dr. Hardiman prior to embarking o [...]

  • Steve

    As Bond and his friend Hugo work their way back to England they make a stop with an old family friend in Cuba and are drawn into a plot for world domination. There was lots of action in this book but this version of Bond has been toned down for the YA reader and feels like a step backwards for the character compared to the Bond of the earlier young Bond novels. This book was a fun YA read with exotic locations and action pieces but the main villains were fairly unmemorable although there was one [...]

    I really enjoyed this book it had a good plot and I recommend it

  • Art

    Heads You Die by Steve Cole is book seven of the Young Bond series and Mr. Cole's second entry with the first five penned by Charlie Higson. Heads You Die does a rare thing for the Bond literary cannon and that is it takes place almost immediately after the events in Shoot To Kill. The beauty and cryptic nature of Cuba is the back drop for this adventure. James Bond is loosely tied to this adventure at best by a longtime family friend who the reader first meets in the pages of this novel. Bond d [...]

  • Scott

    Fast-paced and a tight plot makes Cole's next instalment of Young Bond even better than Shoot to Kill. While still not up to the standards of Fleming or even Higson in his earlier Young Bond novels, Cole does not disappoint. In Heads You Die, Bond finds himself in Cuba with his friend Hugo, who is similar to Tyrion Lannister. As always, James Bond meets attractive females and evil villains and needs to save his country from certain doom. Watch out for all the mahogany. It seemed to be mentioned [...]
