The story is split into three parts: the Baccarat game, the torture, and the love affair with Vesper. The Baccarat game is the best part of the book and Fleming does an excellent job of explaining the game and creating tension even for those who don't understand how it's played.

Compared to the movie, the book is slower paced, less linear, and has more tangents and characterization.

The last part of the book is the weakest, and is tarnished by some blatantly sexist and unnecessary remarks. For example, when Bond is thinking about having sex with Vesper he excitedly thinks that "the conquest of her body, because of the central privacy in her, would have the sweet tang of rape." ( )

My first Ian Fleming and James Bond book and where better to start than at the beginning. Having seen the Daniel Craig movie I was pretty interested to see how it differed from the book and where I felt each one was the better approach. Initially I was surprised at how small the books is, off the top of my head I think its not much more than 200 pages.

The first thing that jumped out at me is that the Bond in my head is Sean Connery and not Roger Moore or even Daniel Craig given the book I was reading. At no point did I feel that this spoiled the book although it's worth noting that neither Le Chiffre or Vesper Lynd were their respective actors in my head. Maybe decades of watching Bond had ingrained him on my mind.

Le Chiffre in particular is different to the movie and I think that the movie villain is a far better fit physically. I suspect that Fleming wanted him to be a more physically imposing figure than the movie required. He comes across in the book as more of a strong but slightly simple villain instead of some super evil baddie.

The casino descriptions were top notch and I really love the idea of 1950's European casino's. They some how capture a certain time and class for me and somewhere I would love to visit if I had a time machine. Given that the book was written in 1953 I was pretty surprised about the torture scene and how brutal it was in it's detail. This just makes me wonder if the peril levels in later books remain as gritty as this and where merely toned down to slightly comical levels for the movies.

I really enjoyed this read, it was quick and easy going with just enough going on to keep me constantly engaged. It did feel a little lacking in places but given that Bond is such a prominent character in modern life that's hardly surprising. I am looking forward to reading all the Bond books in the future. ( )

I thought it was a fairly fun book to read. I've never read a Bond book before and think I've only seen one or two movies and remember nothing about them. If it weren't for the horrible, absolutely terrible sexism, I would have likely loved it. Yes, I completely understand that it must be taken in context of the time and the sort of man Bond is and his profession. I get all of that but it still took away from my enjoyment of the book.

I don't think I'd read another but I'm glad I read this one. I don't know. Maybe I would read another. Maybe. ( )

First James Bond.... pleasantly surprised with this James Bond story... not at all like the cheesy movies that are churned out.. this is definitely more gritty and gives a good initiation into the world of 007.. ( )

The extremely famous start to the legendary spies career, starts with a captivating gambling scene and moves full throttle through the initial set up. It is an act of three parts, and each part is well contained, exciting, and engaging. At the time of publication in the early 1950s, this was described as sadism for snobs. I can understand why that was felt given austerity Britain’s outlook at this point. However, the dinner suit clad agents, the high stakes gambling, the car chases, the inevitable denouncements, all contribute to a gripping narrative. If you’re new to the bonds novels then I envy you as this is one of the best. ( )

The Devil has no prophets to write his Ten Commandments and no teams of authors to write his biography. His case has gone completely by default. We know nothing about him but a lot of fairy stories from our parents and schoolmasters. He has no book from which we can learn the nature of evil in all its forms, with parables about evil people, proverbs about evil people, folk-lore about evil people. All we have is the living example of the people who are least good, or our own intuition.
"surround yourself with human beings, my dear James. They are easier to fight for than principles. But don't let me down and become human yourself. We would lose such a wonderful machine."
“Your own injuries are serious, but your life is not in danger... If all goes well, you will recover completely and none of the functions of your body will be impaired... But I fear that you will continue to be in pain for several days...”
