Although Dr. No was the first movie made in the Bond series, it was actually Fleming's sixth novel in the series, so some of the differences in the book have to do with the fact that there were five other books previous to the story. For example, Bond survived being poisoned in the previous book (#5) From Russia With Love thanks to quick thinking on Rene Mathis' part. Bond had previously met Quarrel and Strangways in book #2, Live and Let Die. Strangways wears an eye patch. Felix Leiter is not in the book, neither is Professor Dent. The photographer wasn't a Chinese/African mix, she was completely Chinese. Her name was also revealed as "Annabelle Chung". Bond was never in a relationship with Ms. Taro. The Three Blind Men were killed by Bond in a shootout at Doctor No's lair, not killed in a car crash as shown in the film. The tarantula was originally a poisonous centipede. There was no radiation on Crab Key. Honey was originally nude except a sheathed knife in a belt. Her nose is also broken. Dr. No was bald and his robotic hands were pincers. Dr. No's human hands weren't destroyed by radiation, but were cut off by Tong hitmen after he made off with their money, and survived from being shot because his heart is also revealed to be on the left side of his chest. Dr. No wasn't working for SPECTRE but for the Russians. He wasn't toppling rockets but missile prototypes. Bond was put on an obstacle course in the air vent suffering through heat, cold, and poisonous animals before being dumped into the ocean and doing battle with a giant squid that he overcame with a table knife and a lighter he had stowed away in his clothes. In the novel, Bond defeats Dr. No by taking over the guano-loading machine at the docks, and dropping the guano (bird dung) on him as opposed to drowning him in a reactor coolant. In the movie, after defeating Dr. No, Bond finds Honey tied to a spill basin, and the two escape in a motorboat with help from Felix Leiter, and make love. In the novel, Bond finds Honey who was tied to some rocks allowing crabs to eat her alive. However, she is aware that the crabs do not like human flesh and they won't attack her unless she moves. She manages to escape, and meets up with a badly injured Bond and they leave the island. Back on the mainland, Honey takes James to the basement of her ruined house to treat his wounds, and after having dinner, they make love.
