Description

For James Bond and the British Secret Service, the stakes couldn’t be higher. 007’s mission is to neutralise the Russian operative Le Chiffre by ruining him at the baccarat table, forcing his Soviet masters to ‘retire’ him. When Le Chiffre hits a losing streak, Bond discovers his luck is in – that is, until he meets Vesper Lynd, a glamorous agent who might yet prove to be his downfall.

Includes an exclusive bonus interview with Dan Stevens.

Ian Fleming was born in London in 1908. He was educated at Eton and worked as a journalist in Moscow and a banker and stockbroker in London before becoming personal assistant to the Director of Naval Intelligence during the Second World War. He wrote his first Bond novel, Casino Royale, in 1952 at Goldeneye, his home in Jamaica. Since then James Bond has gone on to become a global phenomenon.

Dan Stevens is internationally known for his role as Matthew Crawley in the hit television drama Downton Abbey, and more recently he has starred in films including Summer In February, The Fifth Estate, A Walk Among the Tombstones, The Guest, The Cobbler and Night At The Museum 3. Dan’s other screen work includes Vamps, Hilde, Sense & Sensibility, Maxwell and The Line of Beauty, and his theatre work includes The Heiress on Broadway, and Arcadia, Every Good Boy Deserves Favour, The Vortex and Hay Fever in London.

Critiques

"Ian Fleming writes with a kind of pushing, bloodcurdling elegance. His thrillers are models of fastidious murder." ( New York Times)
"From the first evocative words to the last savagely ironic sentence, this is a novel with its own flavour." ( Sunday Times)
"Hums with tension." ( Time Magazine)
"A superb gambling scene, a torture scene which still haunts me, and, of course, a beautiful girl." (Raymond Chandler)
"A first-rate thriller…with a breathtaking plot." ( Manchester Guardian)

Nice Spy Drama

Dan Stevens is excellent. Didn't see much of him on Downton Abby but now I have a new respect for him. Damn good he is. Ian Fleming's writing is worth studying. His use of action direct verbs is excellent. He really knows how to move the story along at the right pace. James Bond is a product of the early Cold War and the left over days of WWII. Still, it is believable and fun to listen to. I like the way Ian Fleming treats characters, not as clichés but as interesting real people, well all but the Bulgarians. This book is worth the read, but as for listening to it, Dan Stevens really does an excellent job.

Much more of a literary effort than I expected

What did you like best about this story?

I have not read any Fleming before and was probably judging him unfairly based only on the movies, but the book was well constructed and the writing much better than expected, I think I thought it would be more comic book style. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

Any additional comments?

Dan Stevens does a good job of the narration - maybe even a little hint of Connery about the phrasing and cadence every now and then.

The classic that introduced James Bond

James Bond is one of the characters that have survived its creator. In Casino Royale, Ian Fleming introduced this 00-agent for the first time and he does a splendid job of it. You don't meet the assured machine-man super-spy of later books, but a very vulnerable and human James.

Personal tragedy mixed with patriotism and revenge drives 007 to make the decision between good and evil. He is not as cold and clinical as he initially seems and he is blinded by his very human emotions. For me, this is much better than the Film and not yet contaminated by high-tech gadgets and action scenes.

Dan Stevens deserves a 5 star performance. It does seem that when you read James Bond, as the narrator you have to put on a clandestine voice that initially has a bit of a monotonous ring to it or maybe a whisper. Stevens' success in reading this story is that the characters doesn't speak with this same type of voice. His impersonations are first rate.

I enjoyed this audio book and must hand another 5 points for Audible making the 'original' James Bond available in unabridged format.

Bond - A Stranger To Present Generations!

Well narrated but not really familiar to Fleming's Bond and his world. The unfamiliarity comes through in the narration and lack of passion for values shows through.
Otherwise, nice experience.

1000 times better than the movies

Was hat Ihnen am allerbesten an Casino Royale (with Interview) gefallen?

The book is much better than the movies. You get insights into Bond's feelings that a camera or actor never could deliver in this detailed way. The audio book is compelling, and Dan Steven's voice is a pleasure to listen to.

Hätten Sie das Hörbuch am liebsten in einem Rutsch durchgehört?

Of course!

Fantastic James Bond story and terrific narrator

Hat Ihnen Dan Stevens an der Geschichte etwas vermittelt, was Sie vielleicht beim Selberlesen gar nicht bemerkt hätten?

definitely! I bought the book many years ago. But now with the audio book the story comes alive

Hätten Sie das Hörbuch am liebsten in einem Rutsch durchgehört?

Yes, I kind of binge-listend the audio book.
