Review: Casino Royale

2007 Finishes: Books

Casino Royale by Ian Fleming
Genre: Mystery, espionage
Pages: 213
Rating: 4

I've seen several James Bond movies and liked them, but I wouldn't say I was a huge fan. I was curious to see what the books were like, though. This turned out to be a decent spy novel - somewhat dated, as you'd expect, but entertaining enough. It was interesting to see the origin of the phenomenon. Bond himself was somewhat different in the book than in the movies I've seen. (I have not yet seen the recent Casino Royale movie.) The book was well-written and atmospheric. It's certainly not the best spy novel ever, but it's worth a read.
