ABOUT THE BOOK James Bond Casino Royale Pdf
I’ve been late in getting around to reading Fleming’s Bond novels…was fairly happy to watch the films, until now.
The fact that Daniel Craig’s first outing in ‘Casino Royale’ is my favourite Bond film (possibly sharing the honours with ‘From Russia With Love’), and the fact that it’s the first novel in the collection, encouraged me to pick up ‘Casino Royale’ first.
All I can say is that this book is exceptionally (and being of fan of Tolkien, I mean exceptionally) well written and the story, the characters and the twist are utterly compelling and thoroughly worth growing attached to.
In hindsight, I was quite impressed by how much the modern film took from this truly vintage book. But I can say with all honesty that this book doesn’t feel ‘old’. It doesn’t feel dated or out-of-touch or from a bygone era. There is a truly timeless quality to it, and Ian Fleming deserves credit not just for Bond himself but for the truly superb quality of this story.
I have read a great many books in my time (and plan on reading a great many more). I do not exaggerate when I say that this is quite possibly one of, if not THE, best..
In the novel that introduced James Bond to the world, Ian Fleming’s agent 007 is dispatched to a French casino in Royale-les-Eaux. His mission? Bankrupt a ruthless Russian agent who’s been on a bad luck streak at the baccarat table.
One of SMERSH’s most deadly operatives, the man known only as “Le Chiffre,” has been a prime target of the British Secret Service for years. If Bond can wipe out his bankroll, Le Chiffre will likely be “retired” by his paymasters in Moscow. But what if the cards won’t cooperate? After a brutal night at the gaming tables, Bond soon finds himself dodging would-be assassins, fighting off brutal torturers, and going all-in to save the life of his beautiful female counterpart, Vesper Lynd.
Taut, tense, and effortlessly stylish, Ian Fleming’s inaugural James Bond adventure has all the hallmarks that made the series a touchstone for a generation of readers.
The text in this edition has been restored by the Fleming family company Ian Fleming Publications, to reflect the work as it was originally published.
About the author
“Ian Fleming was born in London on May 28, 1908. He was educated at Eton College and later spent a formative period studying languages in Europe. His first job was with Reuters News Agency where a Moscow posting gave him firsthand experience with what would become his literary bete noire—the Soviet Union. During World War II he served as Assistant to the Director of Naval Intelligence and played a key role in Allied espionage operations.
After the war he worked as foreign manager of the Sunday Times, a job that allowed him to spend two months each year in Jamaica. Here, in 1952, at his home “Goldeneye,” he wrote a book called Casino Royale—and James Bond was born. The first print run sold out within a month. For the next twelve years Fleming produced a novel a year featuring Special Agent 007, the most famous spy of the century. His travels, interests, and wartime experience lent authority to everything he wrote. Raymond Chandler described him as “the most forceful and driving writer of thrillers in England.” Sales soared when President Kennedy named the fifth title, From Russia With Love, one of his favorite books. The Bond novels have sold more than one hundred million copies worldwide, boosted by the hugely successful film franchise that began in 1962 with the release of Dr. No.
He married Anne Rothermere in 1952. His story about a magical car, written in 1961 for their only son Caspar, went on to become the well-loved novel and film Chitty Chitty Bang Bang.
Fleming died of heart failure on August 12, 1964, at the age of fifty-six.”
