"More exciting than the movie!"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I have always been a fan of the James Bond movies. I feel that even the worst Bond film is better than a lot of regular action films. After seeing the series made great with the release of Casino Royale in 2006, I decided to go back and read the original Ian Fleming novels starting with Casino Royale. I found this book fantastic. The movie was for the most part faithful to the novel and I appreciated it being made in a contemporary setting. I thought the Cold War setting of the novel was a great time capsule to me, being born in the 1980s. Fleming really knew how to tell a story. Sometimes a book is hard for me to get into during the first few chapters, but he really knows how to set up characters, actions and ratchet up tension. And I knew all this had happed because I saw the movie and it felt new just the same. I have already bought From Russia with Love and am trying to decide what to buy after that. I cant wait to move on to the next book.

Description

This title introduces James Bond: charming, sophisticated, handsome; chillingly ruthless and very deadly. Spymaster M has sent Bond on a mission to neutralize a lethal, high-rolling Russian operative called simply 'Le Chiffre' - by ruining him at the baccarat table and forcing his Soviet spymasters to 'retire' him. It seems that lady luck is taken with James - Le Chiffre has hit a losing streak. But some people just refuse to play by the rules, and Bond's attraction to a beautiful female agent leads him to disaster and an unexpected saviour.
