About the Author
Ian Lancaster Fleming was born in London in 1908. His first job was at Reuters news agency after which he worked briefly as a stockbroker before working in Naval Intelligence during the Second World War. His first novel, Casino Royale, was published in 1953 and was an instant success. Fleming went on to write thirteen other Bond books as well as two works of non-fiction and the childrens classic Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. The Bond books have sold over sixty million copies and earned praise from figures such as Raymond Chandler who called Fleming the most forceful and driving writer of thrillers in England and President Kennedy who named From Russia with Love as one of his favourite books. The books inspired a hugely successful series of film adaptations which began in 1962 with the release of Dr No, starring Sean Connery as 007. Fleming was married to Anne Rothermere with whom he had a son, Caspar. He died in 1964.

Notice how the characters are characterized by their ciragettes -- Felix Leiter only smokes Chesterfields, Bond smokes a Turkish/Balkan blend made by Morelands on Grosvenor Street, Le Chiffre smoke...
The literary Bond is far darker than the cinematic Bond. In his debut book this is no more apparent than when he roughly seduces a fellow agent and enjoys the fling for the "sweet tang of rape" that he gets out of her. Despite and maybe because of the blatant misogyny, James Bond comes off as muc...
Very disappointing read as far as this diehard, not even joking, James Bond fan is concerned. (I should probably point out I'm referring to movies only.) For some reason I never picked up a Bond book, that was until this one. Oh boy, oh boy, oh how I wish I never would have. The chauvinistic, sex...
