Casino Royale
Casino Royale by Ian Fleming
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Another bookclub selection. I have only ever seen the movies, so I wasn’t sure what to expect.

I also didn’t realize that this was Fleming’s first book (nor did I realize that he wrote what became Chitty Chitty Bang Bang).

I may read other later books in the series, but this was definitely a first crack at writing. There were some interesting events and the Bond character was larger than life. But, the descriptions were sometimes overly stylized for my taste and the focus on minutiae made the book hard to get through at times.

Still, it was a fun read and very interesting in how different from the more modern versions of the movies that I’ve seen.
