CHARACTERS Casino Royale î PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Chiffre has hit a losing streak But some people just refuse to play by the rules and Bond's attraction to a beautiful female agent leads him to disaster and an unexpected saviour. Surround yourself with human beings my dear James They are easier to fight for than principles He laughed But don t let me down and become human yourself We would lose such a wonderful machineJames Bond Secret Agent for M16 007 with a license to kill This was the 1st entry in Ian Fleming s James Bond series and introduces the world s most famous fictional spy in great fashionBond is in France gambling his nights away at the Royale Casino It all sounds enjoyable however this is part of a very dangerous and highly expensive mission that could cost the UK Treasury 20 million An agent of the infamous Russian intelligence outfit SMERSH Death to Spies Le Chiffre is in a bit of dilemma He invested 50 million of his employers money without their approval into brothels and prostitution hoping to make a uick profit even though the initial funds weren t his It should have been a sound investment well until prostitution was outlawed 3 months later Le Chiffre as an expert gambler is looking to recoup his losses by acting as the playerdealer in a super high roller Baccarat tournament Bond as the secret services finest gambler is given the objective to play in this game under the guise of a Jamaican playboy millionaire and bust the SMERSH agent The outcome of which would be tragic and fatal for Le Chiffre SMERSH is not an agency you want to be on the wrong side ofIn the novels James Bond is very different from what he has morphed in to in the recent movies Here we see an attractive but scarred secret agent Smoker of 70 cigarettes a day huge drinker misogynist cold and brutally efficient whenever given a task for his country I m not saying I agree with his sexist nature but when reading classics I take a step out of our socialisation norms values and reality and try and place myself in the era of when it was written Many of characters and trademarks of the series are introduced here for the first time such as dealing with the Chief of Security M his receptionist Moneypenny the famous Bond James Bond line At this point 007 s tipple of choice is not a Vodka Martini Shaken not Stirred but the Vesper As a professional he only allows himself one drink before he does his duty but he makes it as large as possible as seen belowGoogle Here s how to make the Vesper according to Ian Fleming and James Bond Three measures of Gordon s one of vodka half a measure of Kina Lillet Shake it very well until it s ice cold then add a large thin slice of lemon peelAs the first thriller in the series it features a plethora of elements that have become part and parcel of Fleming s Bond adventures Car chases kidnappings torture betrayal showdowns and lovely ladies The Baccarat showdown is far intense and realistic than the Poker match in this novels Holywood cousin I knew nothing about Baccarat but Fleming explains the rules to the reader as Bond is reiterating how the game is played to one of his colleagues The supporting cast is highly likable including Mathis of the Deuxieme Bureau Vesper Lynd from M16 Russian Division and my favourite recurring character from the books CIA agent Felix Leiter The torture scene presented here however infamous is uite famous now as it is presented almost identically in Daniel Craig s first Bond film The main narrative is completed in about 180 pages The remaining 48 pages are about Bond reflecting on potential retirement and maybe finding love with someone he has crossed during this harrowing mission Just as Bond s icy shell starts to melt and he lets someone in the worst thing possible happens and the ending is unpredictable and pretty heart wrenching I had a great time re reading Casino Royale It just missed out on a 5 star rating because I don t think it is uite as good as On Her Majesty s Secret Service Goldfinger Dr No or From Russia With Love A exhillirating and extremely entertaining spy classic that introduced James Bond arguably the world s most popular fictional character Gargoyles of Gaylord
