Review è Casino Royale ✓ E-book, or Kindle E-pub This the first of Fleming's tales of agent 007 finds Bond on a mission to neutralize a lethal high rolling Russian operative called simply 'Le Chiffre' by. To MFrom Jane MoneypennySubject An assessment of Agent 007 s conduct during operation Casino Royale Dear SirI am aware of concerns raised by certain members of the Service regarding Agent 007 s performance during the abovementioned operation Therefore I would like to offer my personal assessment based on the debriefing reports and my own long familiarity with the subjectIt is true that Agent 007 had somewhat compromised the operation by letting himself getting caught by the Target otherwise known as Le Chiffre It is also undoubtedly true that he might have compromised the integrity of the valuable intelligence that we gathered by becoming an intimate of No 3030 aka Vesper Lynd However despite all of that he had managed to accomplish all of our objectives in the operation as well as unmasking a potentially dangerous double agentI can personally vouch that the errors that Agent 007 had allegedly committed stemmed not from gross negligence or willful disobedience but strictly from certain aspects of his character which are regrettable but perfectly understandable in a man of his persuasion The most obvious of these is his antipathy toward female operatives best illustrated by these uotes from the debriefing report And there was this pest of a girl Women were for recreation On a job they got in the way and fogged things up with sex and hurt feelings and all the emotional baggage they carried around One had to look out for them and take care of them And also These blithering women who thought that they could do a man s work Why the hell couldn t they stay at home and mind their pots and pans and stick to their frocks and gossip and leave men s work to the men Isn t it patently obvious sir that such preconceived notions caused him to fall for the Target s devious trap However he had subseuently paid dearly for such deplorable misogyny by suffering the worst kind of torture known to the male of the species a ghastly affair that involved a cane chair with cut out seat a 3 foot long carpet beater and Agent 007 s naked nether regions the details of which is available in the medical report attached to Head of S s memorandumFurther on his psychological condition during the long convalescence led him to develop certain feelings for Miss Lynd to the extent that he was prepared to propose marriage to her I can assure you that such feelings were genuine even though he later rather callously repudiated them and that he truly had honorable intentions toward her It is obvious from Miss Lynd s unfortunate reaction that the feeling was mutualBased on the aforementioned reasons I propose that we keep Agent 007 in active duty as he had proved that he was able to overcome his personal weaknesses for the good of the Service Besides we now have incontrovertible proof that Agent 007 is irresistible to enemy females a uality that might come handy in future missions that might reuire such abilitySigned Second Officer Jane Moneypenny WRNSPS Please disregard any insinuation from certain members of the Service you know who they are sir that I have a crush on James Agent 007

The scent and smoke and sweat of a casino are nauseating at three in the morning Then the soul erosion produced by high gambling a compost of greed and fear and nervous tension becomes unbearable and senses awake and revolt from it James Bond suddenly knew that he was tired He always knew when his body or his mind had had enough and he always acted on the knowledge This helped him avoid staleness and the sensual bluntness that breeds mistakesThus begins Casino Royale which in 1953 launched the exploits of British Secret Service agent James Bond Until Harry Potter appeared in the rearview mirror of his Aston Martin Bond may have been the biggest literary franchise of the 20th century thanks in large part to the success of twenty five and counting official movies In terms of film franchises Bond is second in sustained popularity only to Godzilla with the jolly green giant generating twenty nine Japanese produced movies and six American ones Interestingly Godzilla arrived in cinemas less than a year after Bond made his debut in booksellers As a kid I loved both characters I still doThe debut novel by Ian Fleming is stark and claustrophobic with a handsome visual splendor spareness of description and a bitter dose of nihilism Racist and sexist epithets are occasionally thrown in like firecrackers but rather than come off as moral defects for Fleming or date the novel give James Bond texture and combustibility Compared to the comic book styling of some of the sillier movies this is a gambling tale that features spycraft rather than a spy story that features a casino At 48000 words I was able to shoot through it in forty eight hours roughly the amount of time one of Bond s missions might lastBond s assignment begins in the fictional town of Royale les Eaux on the coast of northern France a resort town and site of an elegantly dilapidated casino Bond takes a break from the roulette wheel where he s actually been keeping an eye on the baccarat table and a gambler named Le Chiffre He walks to his hotel and learns that ten million francs have been wired to him approved by M the head of his department in London Bond s working capital at the casino now stands at twenty seven million francs After checking his room carefully for signs of intrusion he goes to bed alone one hand on a38 Colt Police pistol under a pillowAccording to a dossier prepared for M Le Chiffre is a chief agent of the USSR in France and paymaster of a Communist trade union there His loose spending habits investing fifty million francs of Moscow s money in a failed chain of brothels and embezzlement have likely drawn the attention of SMERSH the Soviet umbrella organization dedicated to smashing agents the acronym translates to Death To Spies With operating capital of twenty five million francs Le Chiffre desperately seeks to refill the plundered union funds at the Casino Royale where efforts to compete with the neighboring casinos has resulted in a well publicized and anticipated baccarat bank this JuneIntrigued by the prospect of destroying Le Chiffre at the baccarat table M selects Bond one his agency s feared double 0 s a designation earned by agents who kill a man in the line of duty Veteran of a casino assignment in Monte Carlo and a talented gambler in his own right 007 is tough as well a skill he may need if he comes into contact with the two bodyguards Le Chiffre keeps Bond passes himself off as a fop gambling away a family fortune made on tobacco and sugar in Jamaica He s assisted by Ren Mathis of the French Deuxi me Bureau and Felix Leiter of the CIA and to his chagrin a girl from headuarters personal assistant to the chief of Section M Mathis and Bond exchanged cheerful talk about the fine weather and the prospects of a revival in the fortunes of Royale les Eaux The girl sat silent She accepted one of Bond s cigarettes examined it and then smoked it appreciatively and without affectation drawing the smoke deeply into her lungs with a little sigh and then exhaling it casually through her lips and nostrils Her movements were economical and precise with no trace of self consciousnessBond finds the girl to be professional and easy to converse with He recognizes their sexual chemistry and would like to sleep with her but only after their assignment Bond later learns her name is Vesper Lynd Fleming not only pauses to show 007 and Vesper at work the pair communicate vast amounts of information about each other in the way Bond offers her a glass of vodka before her amused glance forces him to suggest a cocktail but also illustrates the sensory experience of a European casino in the 1950s and how baccarat is played with a round of twelve players dealt two cards with the option for a third a winning hand adding up to nine and face cards uselessTo separate the novel from the movie I should state that while Goldfinger 1964 or On Her Majesty s Secret Service 1969 are the films typically cited by Bond connoisseurs as the best of the series with Sean Connery and George Lazenby playing Bond alternately I m actually most enad by Daniel Craig s debut as 007 in Casino Royale 2006 In addition to Bond being reintroduced as rougher and muscular a killer than ever before Vesper Lynd Eva Green and Le Chiffre Mads Mikkelsen nearly eclipse 007 in intrigue The bevy of beauties or deranged villains are interchangeable in a lot of these movies but not this one Casino Royale functions succinctly and beautifully as a world parallel to the film series beginning in the wake of World War II rather than the Swinging Sixties and with a slightly rougher and wayward Bond For the 007 of literature and the men who defeated the Axis Powers Asian stereotypes are simply a matter of professional experience and women belong at home cooking or gossiping not interfering in men s work At least one of these prejudices the one about women s work being in the home are admirably and tenderly subverted in the course of the novel while the other is an aside that demonstrates Bond s self isolation than it does a belief by FlemingFleming s writing is like an Esuire Magazine article without any of the hooptedoodle or parts for men to skip over Luck was a servant and not a master Luck had to be accepted with a shrug or taken advantage of up to the hilt But it had to be understood and recognized for what it was and not confused with a faulty appreciation of the odds for at gambling the deadly sin is to mistake bad play for bad luck And luck in all its moods had to be loved and not feared Bond saw luck as a woman to be softly wooed or brutally ravaged never pandered to or pursued But he was honest enough to admit that he had never yet been made to suffer by cards or by women One day and he accepted the fact he would be brought to his knees by love or by luckFleming adorns the novel with twenty seven splendid chapter titles 8 Pink Lights and Champagne 9 The Game Is Baccarat 15 Black Hare and Grey Hound which is something I always like The story surges in momentum from team building to the big game then view spoilerBond s torture by Le Chiffre hide spoiler

I think I read From Russia With Love first and FRWL will always be my favorite Bond book and movie but I had to go back to the beginning a read the Fleming bond books straight through I was afforded the opportunity a few years ago when the entire Fleming collection in paperback was available for 20 at Sam s Club Still one of the best book buys I have ever come acrossCasino Royale did not blow me away it is a bit dry and slow I wasn t going to let that deter me from my uest to work through the series but it did take some getting used to I am not sure if it is just that it is from early in Fleming s writing career or if it is just tough to feel comfortable with my image of Bond as I was reading words from his creation I am reminded of when you go back to watch the first episode of a sitcom while you are 8 or 9 seasons in and none of the characters are developed or comfortable yetOne thing that surprised me was that the recent Casino Royale movie did include most of the story from the book view spoilertrading Texas Hold Em for Baccarat hide spoiler
