Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Bond is what every man would like to be and what every woman would like to have between her sheets.” Raymond Chandler
“From the first evocative words to the last savagely ironic sentence. this is a novel with its own flavor.” Sunday Times
“Mr. Fleming has produced a book that is both exciting and extremely civilized.” Times Literary Supplement
“Narrator Dan Stevens, of Downton Abbey fame, perfectly captures the joie de vivre of Bond and, even more important, his humanity. While images of Sean Connery are inescapable, Stevens creates his own version of the secret agent…And what Bond book would be complete without a woman? The femme fatale in this work is one of the more fully realized women in the Bond series and has surprises of her own.” AudioFile
“An intense, fascinating, and moody piece of fiction.” Raymond Benson, author of High Time to Kill

Wow...the first one is the best so far!

The audio book of Casino Royale is GREAT! I wasn't expecting it to be as tense as it was and Dan Stevens really understands the tension in the writing. The "cane chair" scene that stands out in the film is not just fully intact here, but actually is MUCH more brutal.

A wonderful surprise

I was actually surprised at how much I enjoyed this book, even though the recent film based on it is one of my favorite movies. I just wasn't expecting them to be so similar considering the number of decades between them. There is plenty of suspense and intrigue, and Dan Stevens is a phenomenal narrator. All of his character voices are distinct and interesting, and he sounds intimately familiar with the story, giving his performance a nice, easy flow. There is a rather brutal torture scene, so be forewarned if that type of thing bothers you. But this is a marvelous audiobook.
