Re: Casino Royale-First Time

One of the great joys of watching Casino Royale in 2006 was that it was the only opportunity I've ever had of watching an adaptation of a Fleming novel after having previously read the book.

It is a great novel, definitely one of the strongest in the Bond canon. And while I certainly think the film adaptation is excellent, nothing beats the original Bond novel. I hope you will enjoy reading the rest of the Bond series. There are are some excellent literary Bond adventures in store for you.

As a slice of history. Basically Britain in the 50s. Oddly enough that's one of my personal

I'm old, so I've had that pleasure before. I loved seeing FYEO for that reason.

It's the same for me really.  Reading Casino Royale and Moonraker really is like taking a step back in time, and is all the more appealing for it.  ajb007/martini

Not even close. They didn't do Mathis wrong in the book, the torture scene traumatizes Bond, and they made up the first hour of the movie!
