    " Proto-James Bond and not very good. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Becky | 12/17/2013

    " made me laugh out loud in many places, a really great crime novel "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Matt | 10/23/2013

    " Rather an amusing tale of daring-do. The writing was actually of a better quality than expected for the era and the type of book it was. Bull-dog Drummond really is a prototype for James Bond. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Daniel | 10/2/2013

    " A refreshing start, great narrative and vivid descriptions throughout. It might have, however, been dragged on too much without much of a climax and some of the events seemed a bit far fetched to be believable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carmelina | 9/30/2013

    " After reading this book I now understand why Bulldog Drummond is the pre Bond. He is witty, brave, nerves of steel, moral and laughs in the face of danger. A thoroughly enjoyable read - will be reading the rest of the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Martina | 9/21/2013

    " For the Historical Mystery Book Group, July discussion. A real adventure yarn with all the post WW I rah rah Brits in action. A bit derogatory about 'others', but nothing as egregious as John Buchan's 39 Steps. Very enjoyable read/ "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 psm | 9/6/2013

    " one of the better sort of 'shilling shockers'. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Donna | 7/31/2013

    " Written in the 1920s Bulldog Drummond was an inspiration to Ian Fleming for the James Bond books. While some of the slang is a bit difficult to understand you can still enjoy the caper while being assured that our hero will live to fight another day. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael | 6/5/2013

    " Terribly old fashioned but a romp of a read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sem | 2/25/2013

    " I bet Sapper wished that he hadn't saddled Drummond with a wife at the end of his first outing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Phil Leech | 1/26/2013

    " Good romping old yarn, though definitely of its time. Not hard to see why Ian Fleming seemingly based some of Bond on Bulldog. A true British hero in the days when the empire could still strike back. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kenneth | 11/29/2012

    " OK, OK it's dated and very politically incorrect but it's great fun. The very British hero defeats all those beastly foreigners. Plus the image of the baddy's girlfriend, the chain smoking Irma, stayed with me through my teenage years. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda Allen | 11/3/2012

    " 4.5 stars! This book was utterly delightful brain candy and I enjoyed every minute-- though minus half a star for a gorilla. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sion Smith | 8/30/2012

    " Totally not what I was expecting given what's been said about it in the past. Umm... not awful, not great. possibly just not in the mood. Maybe I need to revisit this one and subsequent stories again. Why do I feel bad for not loving the s**t out of it... "
