Bond does not himself feature until quite late in this novel – the opening chapters, one of Fleming's most amazing fantasies, creates the nightmare world of SMERSH – the Russian counter-spy organisation, its sickeningly foul section head Rosa Klebb and her top assassin Grant. When the action shifts to Istanbul and Klebb's plot to destroy the unsuspecting Bond one of the most brilliant chase sequences in fiction (unrivalled even by Buchan or Greene) unfolds. One of the defining books of the Cold War (and one of President Kennedy's favourite books) „From Russia with Love” is perhaps even more enjoyable to read now than when it first became a huge international bestseller.

Ian Fleming: From Russia with Love

Az egyik legjobban megírt darabja a 007-es történeteinek, összeesküvéssel, fordulattal, kulináris élvezetekkel és az eddigi regényekben is előforduló pszichológiai és személyiségi leírásokkal. A film hasonlóan jól sikerült darab; ugyan vannak eltérések, de tökéletesen egyenrangú a kettő.

'The English are not interested in heroes unless they are footballers or cricketers or jockeys. If a man climbs a mountain or runs very fast he also is a hero to some people, but not to the masses. The Queen of England is also a hero, and Churchill. But the English are not greatly interested in military heroes. This man Bond is unknown to the public. If he was known, be would still not be a hero. In England, neither open war nor secret war is a heroic matter. They do not like to think about war, and after a war the names of their war heroes are forgotten as quickly as possible. Within the Secret Service, this man may be a local hero or he may not. It will depend on his appearance and personal characteristics. Of these I know nothing. He may be fat and greasy and unpleasant. No one makes a hero out of such a man, however succesful he is.'

From the first, Istanbul had given him the impression of a town where, with the night, horror creeps out of the stones. It seemed to him a town the centuries had so drenched in blood and violence that, when daylight went out, the ghosts of its dead were its only population. His instinct told him, as it has told other travellers, that Istanbul was a town he would be glad to get out of alive.

Never job backwards. What-might-have-been was a waste of time. Follow your fate, and be satisfied with it, and be glad not to be a second-hand motor salesman, or a yellow-press journalist, pickled in gin and nicotine, or a cripple – or dead.
