Casino Royale | Ian Fleming

I chose this when aimlessly searching Libby for an audiobook. I‘ve never read a James Bond book and I learned through a little digging that there is a set of audio editions read by British celebrities. This is not in and of itself a thing to be sought out. But so far, Dan Stevens of Downton Abbey fame has just the right sort of smooth purr I would associate with James Bond. #audiobooks #jamesbond

callielafleur Casino Royale has the best explanation of the rules of baccarat that I've ever come across. Very helpful when watching the older Bond movies! 1mo
AlaMich @callielafleur I will have to be on the lookout for that! I have less than no idea how baccarat is played. 😊 1mo
Suet624 That‘s great! 1mo

Fun book, but damn it is a tough read. Fleming was not a modern man.

#Better

The first thing that came to mind was the song "Nobody Does It Better" the theme to the James Bond movie The Spy Who Loved Me. Now I can't think of anything else.

Nobody does it better
Makes me feel sad for the rest
Nobody does it half as good as you
Baby, you're the best

CarolynM Oh boy, that is an amazing cover! It certainly picks up some of the stuff in the book! 2mo

Forever and a Day | Anthony Horowitz

I‘ve wanted to read Anthony Horowitz for awhile (specifically the ‘Magpie Murders‘, or ‘the Word Is Murder‘, among others) and this is my first foray, so hard to say whether it‘s much different than his usual stuff. A really fun little novel. It‘s supposed to be James Bond‘s first case upon getting his 007 license. It really does feel like a first case, rather than an epic, fate of the world type story that come later.

This is the book that started it all. It was nice to be introduced to the characters I know so well. First published in 1953 this book is dated and rather chauvinistic. I enjoyed the adventure of it all and it ended in typical Bond fashion.

Went to an awesome book-themed bar in San Francisco. I had a Miss Moneypenny from Ian Fleming‘s Casino Royale! 🍸 📚🍸

EclecticBookLover That looks delicious! My husband and I had the Vesper as our signature drink for our wedding. 4mo

This one has good moments: I enjoyed the foreshadowing of the plot, which nicely built tension before Bond appeared, and Fleming's glimpses into Bond's inner life rounds him out somewhat. But, obviously, the sexism and rape culture palls.

Either Fleming was getting formulaic by book five, or I'm losing interest in the series, but this didn't seem as good to me as it's predecessors.
3/5🌟
