James-Bond-Fest continues in order with Thunderball, an entertaining book with the first introduction of SPECTRE and Blofeld.  This book, if I'm not mistaken, is also the one which caused a lot of headaches for the author, who lost part of his control over Bond to a man who sued (and won, again, I believe) saying the story was his idea.  You shouldn't take my word for any of this, and a quick internet search would no doubt provide the proper details.  But as this site is just a place for me to note the books I've read and my musings, it hardly seems worth the trouble.
