Most of the the one and two star reviewers of this book were sadly disappointed, expecting that the glitzy movie version of Bond would be found in Fleming's actual books.
But, with the exception of Sean Connery's Bond in the first three movies, and Daniel Craig's back-to-basics interpretation in the first three of the current series, the movie Bond character for the most part has been nothing more than escapist fantasy.
The literary Bond isn't the superhero of the movies. He's a flawed, cold killer in the service of his country in a dangerous time.
Written during the height of the Cold War, Fleming's Bond novels were based on actual people and operations that Fleming had first hand knowledge of because of his highly placed role in British Naval Intelligence during WW II.
Rather than judge Casino Royale, or any of Fleming's Bond novels, by what you've seen in the movies, instead first learn about the real Operation Goldeneye; the real Operation Tracer; the real Operation Ruthless; the real No.
The tradecraft, operations, units, events, and involved individuals were the very real WW II sources that Ian Fleming used in creating Bond and the world in which he moved.
Fleming's romanticized works have a ring of authenticity recognizable to anyone familiar with or who may have participated in events that occurred during those times.
Read Casino Royale; travel back to a time when French was the only international language; a time when Joseph Stalin and the Soviet NKVD represented a very real threat; a time when people feared that threat; and a time when the governments of the Free World had very real people on the payroll like Fleming's fictional James Bond to counter that threat.
Perhaps you'll see the same things in it that caused the first three printings to sell out quickly in the U. At the time of Casino Royale , Bond is about 30 years old and has held the 00 number for about six months.
He earns the U. He spends what he earns. This structure accounts for the unevenness of the novel, with the three set pieces highly effective and the intervening chapters serviceable at best.
Fleming was a big believer in writing fast and not looking back, and it shows in his novels. Poorly written, oddly structured, but with some great scenes.
It would be a shame for any spy-thriller fan to miss out on it. The electrifying set-piece scenes more than make up for its faults.
There have been three adaptations of Casino Royale , one television version and two movies. Nelson was miscast, the screenplay was unexceptional and it was swiftly forgotten.
The main legacy of this first version of Casino Royale was that CBS, who thought the Bond character could support a television series, asked Ian Fleming for more story outlines.
After the Sean Connery films ignited the James Bond phenomena, attempts were made to get Casino Royale filmed as part of the franchise.
It is generally regarded as a dismal failure. It was one of the most successful Bond films ever, both critically and commercially, and Daniel Craig and Eva Green were both praised for their acting.
Two of the core scenes of the novel occur during the second half of the movie: The ending is thematically similar to the book but much more action-packed and visual.
Interestingly, the parts of the film that really work are the ones inspired by the novel. The first half, which is an origin story for Bond unrelated to the novel, is much more formulaic.
The chase in the airport in particular could have been taken from a Roger Moore Bond movie. That the three highlights of the novel still work half a century later in a different medium shows how powerful they are.
You can read the opening here: The first two chapters of A Kill in the Morning. Fleming had previously mentioned to friends that he wanted to write a spy novel,  but it was not until early , to distract himself from his forthcoming nuptials, that he began to write Casino Royale at his Goldeneye estate in Jamaica on 17 February; he typed out 2, words in the morning, directly from his own experiences and imagination,   and finished work on the manuscript in March In May he wrote a piece for Books and Bookmen magazine in which he said: I never correct anything and I never go back to see what I have written By following my formula, you write 2, words a day.
Back in London, Fleming had his manuscript—which he described as his "dreadful oafish opus"  —retyped by Joan Howe, his red-haired secretary at The Times on whom the character Miss Moneypenny was partly based.
At first they were unenthusiastic, but were persuaded to publish on the recommendation of Fleming's older brother, Peter , an established travel writer whose books they managed.
Although Fleming provided no dates within his novels, two writers have identified different timelines based on events and situations within the novel series as a whole.
John Griswold and Henry Chancellor—both of whom have written books on behalf of Ian Fleming Publications —put the events of Casino Royale in ; Griswold allows a possible second timeframe and considers the story could have taken place in either May to July , or May to July Casino Royale was inspired by certain incidents that took place during Fleming's wartime career at the Naval Intelligence Division NID , or by events of which he was aware.
Because of Portugal's neutral status, Estoril's population had been swelled by spies and agents from the warring regimes.
Fleming claimed that while there he was cleaned out by a "chief German agent" at a table playing chemin de fer. The failed attempt to kill Bond while at Royale-Les-Eaux was inspired by Fleming's knowledge of the attempted assassination of Franz von Papen , Vice-Chancellor of Germany and an ambassador under Hitler.
Both Papen and Bond survived their assassination attempts, carried out by Bulgarians, because trees protected them from the blasts. Fleming also included four references in the novel to "Red Indians", including twice on the last page, which came from a unit of commandos , known as No.
Fleming initially named the character James Secretan before he appropriated the name of James Bond , author of the ornithology guide, Birds of the West Indies.
Fleming decided that Bond should resemble both the American singer Hoagy Carmichael and himself,  and in the novel Lynd remarks that "Bond reminds me rather of Hoagy Carmichael, but there is something cold and ruthless.
Bond's order, to be served in a deep champagne goblet , was for "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 peel. Speaking of Bond's origins, Fleming said that "he was a compound of all the secret agents and commando types I met during the war",  although the author gave many of his own traits to the character.
Fleming used the casino to introduce Bond in his first novel because "skill at gambling and knowledge of how to behave in a casino were seen William Cook in New Statesman .
Bond's superior, M, was largely based on Godfrey, Fleming's NID superior officer;  Godfrey was known for his bellicose and irascible temperament.
Fleming later said of his work, "while thrillers may not be Literature with a capital L, it is possible to write what I can best describe as 'thrillers designed to be read as literature ' ".
The semiotician and essayist, Umberto Eco , in his examination of the Bond books, "The Narrative Structure of Ian Fleming", considered that Fleming "has a rhythm, a polish, a certain sensuous feeling for words.
That is not to say that Fleming is an artist; yet he writes with art. Casino Royale was written after, and was heavily influenced by, the Second World War;  Britain was still an imperial power,  and the Western and Eastern blocs were engaged in the Cold War.
In parts of central London, including Oxford Street and High Holborn still had uncleared bomb sites and, while sweets had ceased being rationed, coal and other food items were still regulated.
Casino Royale deals with the question of Anglo-American relations, reflecting the real-world central role of the US in the defence of the West. Amis, in his exploration of Bond in The James Bond Dossier , pointed out that Leiter is "such a nonentity as a piece of characterization The treachery of Le Chiffre, with the overtones of a fifth column , struck a chord with the largely British readership as Communist influence in the trade unions had been an issue in the press and parliament at the time.
Benson considers the most obvious theme of the novel to be good versus evil. In light of Bond's conversation, Butterfield identifies a crisis of confidence in Bond's character, where he has "moved beyond good and evil" to the point where he does his job not because of principles, but to pursue personal battles.
Black also identifies a mechanism Fleming uses in Casino Royale —and in subsequent Bond novels—which is to use the evil of his opponents both as a justification of his actions, and as a device to foil their own plans.
Black refers to the episode of the attempted assassination of Bond by Bulgarian assassins which results in their own deaths. Casino Royale was first released on 13 April in the UK as a hardback edition by publishers Jonathan Cape,  with a cover devised by Fleming.
John Betjeman , writing in The Daily Telegraph , considered that "Ian Fleming has discovered the secret of the narrative art Thus the reader has to go on reading".
The critic for Time magazine examined Raymond Chandler 's The Long Goodbye alongside Casino Royale ; he praised Casino Royale , saying that "Fleming keeps his incidents and characters spinning through their paces like juggling balls.
Writing for The New York Times , Anthony Boucher wrote that the book belongs "pretty much to the private-eye school" of fiction. You should certainly begin this book; but you might as well stop when the baccarat game is over.
For this Americanised version of the story, Bond is an American agent, described as working for "Combined Intelligence", while the character Leiter from the original novel is British, renamed "Clarence Leiter".
The agent for Station S. Feldman represented Ratoff's widow and obtained the rights to make a film version. Casino Royale was the first James Bond novel to be adapted as a daily comic strip ; it was published in The Daily Express and syndicated worldwide.
McLusky felt that Fleming's looked too "outdated" and "pre-war" and changed Bond to give him a more masculine look. Following the adaptation, the rights to the film remained with Columbia Films until when the studio, and the rights to their intellectual property portfolio was acquired by the Japanese company Sony.
This led to Eon Productions making the film Casino Royale.
