That's like saying Ringo is your favorite Beatle.

He's definitely the Lennon of the Bond bunch.

It really just depends the degree with which you want the character to draw on the source material. Moore is the least like the literary Bond (though overall better than Lazenby, of course).

Well, I don't know if I'll find the inspiration but this, I couldn't not send this sketch, drawn this summer, while France was having a great great and verrry important debate about the burkini. 

So this was my version of the tuxini 

 

 

A new scandal on a Mexican beach, where this swimmer, recently radicalized, was seen with a swimsuit directly inspired by the most extremist sartorial ayatollahs. Stay tuned for more informations about this #tuxini gate

Reading the books (or at least some of them; I think I got through 6-7 on my free trial of Kindle Unlimited) definitely gives an interesting perspective on Bond. Connery's always been my favorite, though seeing some of Timothy Dalton's other work as an actor (see The Lion in Winter) and reading the books has given me a strong appreciation for his take on the character. Moore can be entertaining, but I often find him too campy. Brosnan is better than Moore as Bond, but his film's aren't great. Craig I appreciate, but I still am bothered by reading that he couldn't drive a stick shift when he was announced as the next Bond.

That is strange. Don't almost all the euros drive stick? I know requesting an automatic rental car in Europe is pretty much laughable. Or did he just not drive?
