    About "Christopher Wood"

    1. Christopher Wood

      Librarian Note There is than one author by this name in the database.Christopher Wood graduated from Cambridge with degrees in economics and law before doing military service in Cyprus and Africa.In the late sixties, Wood was working as an advertising executive He used the long daily commute to London from his home in Royston to write books His first, Make It Happen to Me, was inspired by his time in Africa, and his second, Terrible Hard, Says Alice, by his military service in Cyprus The paperback rights to the first of these books were picked up by Sphere.Wood felt trapped by the expectation that he would produce serious novels like his first two He wanted an idea that would be profitable enough to allow him to write full time This is when he came up with the idea of a series of books which combined his own experience of doing manual jobs as a youth with the mythology of the randy window cleaner Thus was Timothy Lea born Timothy Lea was the hero of, and Wood s pseudonym for, a series of nineteen bawdy comic novels beginning with Confessions of a Window Cleaner in 1971 and finishing with Confessions from a Haunted House in 1979 In each book, Timmy would relate his misadventures in a new occupation, often using his own eccentric terms as well as traditional Cockney rhyming slag These books were so popular that, in 1974, Wood invented a new characer pseudonym Rosie Dixon which he used for a series of nine novels, beginning with Confessions of a Night Nurse and finishing with Rosie Dixon, Barmaid in 1977 Rosie Dixon was his second female character pseudonym The first was stewardess Penny Sutton whose series of five novels began in 1973 with The Stewardesses Wood also created another character pseudonym in 1974 Oliver Grape a sexually frustrated 14 year old whose adventures ran to three volumes And he wrote one novel Soccer Thug under the pseudonym Frank Clegg Wood wrote the screenplays for four movies adapted from his Timothy Lea novels and one from the first of the Rosie Dixon books.Wood co wrote the script for the 1977 James Bond film The Spy Who Loved Me with Richard Maibaum and scripted its follow up Moonraker in 1979 And he became the first person to write a film tie in novel for a James Bond film James Bond, The Spy Who Loved Me, followed by James Bond and Moonraker Wood s other screenwriting credits include the sitcom Lovely Couple in 1979 and the movie Remo Williams The Adventure Begins 1985.

    1. Easily the best continuation novel from another author than Fleming. This book and its sister (the moonraker one) are often overlooked due to the cultstatus of the movies they are based upon. That said mr. Wood was in both cases responsible from the stories and screenplays. But both books are more and more considered by fans of the writing of Ian Fleming as the best there is after Fleming.TSWLM is the movie told in far more detail, it also takes away some of the Roger Moorish fun in favor of a m [...]

    2. One of the first and still very best of the Bond continuation novels. Even hampered by the unenviable chore of having to turn a frivolous film script into a novel Christopher Wood manages to evoke Fleming as no-one else ever has. He went on to repeat this amazing feat a few years later in the Moonraker film/novel tie-in. Alas there are no more and Christopher Wood was only commissioned by the film companies to produce these because he was employed as a writer on both movies. If only the keepers [...]

    3. Few novelizations of scripts work as novels. There are exceptions and this novel is one of them. Christopher Wood, who also co-wrote the screenplay, takes one of the more fantastic Bond films and brings it down to Earth. The result is a tense and action packed Bond novel. Wood starts with James Bond himself. This 007 is smarter and more human then his counterpart in either the previous novels or in the film for that matter, He has one liners, but not many and does that appear in the novel actual [...]

    4. Christopher Wood is the second author to rake on the Bond series, having to actually focus on the film novelized versions. I usually dislike novelized film books, finding most of them miss directing either the back story additions, or creating more action than was in the movie.However, Wood surprised me on several accounts, adding the history of the film's Bond villain JAWS into a believable history, while also comparing Anya the Russian spy to Bond's only true love in Fleming's series Tracy. Th [...]

    5. Without question the very best of the James Bond continuation novels. Wood perfectly manages to channel Fleming and add complexity and character to the novelization of his screenplay. A real triumph this book is compulsive reading.

    6. Quiet a good novelisation , I quite liked it at the time , also liked the Roger movie . Chris Wood is better known for his Confessions series of books , but here stays true to the movie Bond . The book contains a torture scene not in the movie , quite good scene too .

    7. Novelised by Christopher Wood (who wrote the screenplay), presumably taking a break from his 'Timothy Lea' stories, this is a decent, sharply played little thriller that differs from the film.

    8. A very readable novelization of the iconic movie. This was written to be grittier than the movie, which for me, makes it more appealing for fans of the novels.
