Throwback Thursday meme is hosted by Renee@Itโ€™s Book Talk and is a way to share some of your old favourites as well as sharing books that you want to read that were published over a year ago. You know, the ones waiting patiently on your TBR list while you continue to pile more titles on top of them ๐Ÿ™‚ These older books are usually much easier than new releases to get a hold of at libraries and elsewhere. If you have your own Throwback Thursday recommendation feel free to jump on board, youโ€™re welcome to use Reneeโ€™s pic as well. If youโ€™d just link back to her @ Itโ€™s Book Talk sheโ€™d so appreciate it.

My choice this week is: SilverFin by Charlie Higson the first book in the Young Bond series.

From Goodreads:


Paperback, 372 pages
Published March 3rd 2005 by Puffin Books



Before the name became a legend. Before the boy became the man. Meet Bond. James Bond.

Thereโ€™s something in the water at Loch Silverfin. Something deadly. Something that must be kept secretโ€ฆ

Itโ€™s James Bondโ€™s first day at Eton, and already heโ€™s met his first enemy. This is the start of an adventure that will take him from the school playing fields to the remote shores of Loch Silverfin and a terrifying discovery that threatens to unleash a new breed of warfare.

This is a great book to start of a fun series that I had the pleasure of discovering whilst on holiday in Brittany a few years ago. Charlie Higson does a wonderful job revealing Bond as a teenager before he became theย  chauvinist we know so well from the original Ian Fleming books.
