Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok! Being almost raised on the James Bond movies(seeing them only a hundred times), I decided to read this before the movie came out. It is alright, but did not interest me as much as the Hollywood version, although the torture part is alot more detailed and had me squirming. I guess because I've seen all of the classic Bond movies, I expected the same atmosphere in the book. I don't want to sound like i'm criticizing it, but If your in to Bond don't expect the same type of intrigue from the book.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A ripping good yarn. As if owning this book series for it's cover art weren't enough, it tells the story of everyones favourite gentleman spy from the very words of the man who first dreamed him up. Until of course they re-vamped the Bond series with Daniel Craig and left more of the original material intact (a brilliant move in my opinion). I personally love the late 40s setting of the novel and its descriptions of baccarat, a game now difficult to find in many casinos but is still quite riveting. And like the film, the fact that this is the telling of the events that created the worlds greatest spy were as great an origin story as you'd be able to find.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fleming's first Casino royale is the first James Bond book by Ian Fleming. It is the most atmospheric and darkest in the series in my own opinion. The villain, classic. Vesper Lynd is also a great Bond girl, and the twist in the end is excellent. And of course, James Bond is introduced, perfectly by his creator. 4/5
