Casino Royal by Ian Fleming

Paperback Edition
I've seen most, if not all of, the James Bond films made at some point in my lifetime... But, I've never read a James Bond/007 novel by Ian Fleming, until now!

I decided to read Ian Fleming's Casino Royale as it's the first novel to introduce James Bond to the world at large.

No surprise, but James Bond is very different in the novel than in the movie versions! In Casino Royale, James Bond drives a Bentley instead of an Aston Martin. He looks differently than I expected and behaves differently too.

I am glad that I took the opportunity to read a James Bond novel by Ian Fleming, but to be honest, I won't be rushing out to read another Ian Fleming novel. His writing style just wasn't for me. 

I am giving Casino Royale a rating of 3 stars out of 5 stars.

Until my next post, happy reading!!
