His first job was with Reuters news agency, followed by a brief spell as a stockbroker. On the outbreak of the Second World War he was appointed assistant to the Director of Naval Intelligence, Admiral Godfrey, where he played a key part in British and Allied espionage operations.
After the war he joined Kemsley Newspapers as Foreign Manager of the Sunday Times, running a network of correspondents who were intimately involved in the Cold War.
The first print run sold out within a month. Following this initial success, he published a Bond title every year until his death.
His own travels, interests and wartime experience gave authority to everything he wrote. The Bond novels have sold more than sixty million copies and inspired a hugely successful film franchise which began in with the release of Dr No starring Sean Connery as He married Anne Rothermere in Fleming died of heart failure on August 12, , at the age of fifty-six.

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. He knows that statistically he will have at least 10, probably 20, and as many as 30 very tough assignments before the mandatory 00 retirement age of He knows the odds of his surviving the coming ten years are slim to none.
And that depresses him. And I understand why people love the books - adventure, torture, being a spy who is rich, beds tons of women, and travels to exotic places.
It's not that I don't understand the appeal of this pulp fiction. Wholly unrealistic, it's a fantasy. Real, actual spywork I'd imagine is NOTHING like the government giving you millions of pounds to gamble away, pairing you up with a sexy female agent that they are fine with you having sex with, and setting you up in a resort-like location where your every whim is catered to.
Because that's your 'cover. However, as a woman in I just can't ignore the screaming, in-your-face racism and sexism that permeates every page of this novel.
Fleming is a good author - there are some gems in here, some great lines and some deep philosophical pondering on Bond's part this surprised me, he's usually very shallow.
Also, no one can write a long villain speech like Fleming can. Le Chiffre's long speech to Bond about how he's going to torture him and there's no hope is wonderful and can be perfectly imagined playing out on the big screen.
Tl;dr - Exciting spy novel drenched in misogyny and racism. I'll include some of the more inflammatory passages here. Don't read them if you're easily upset.
And then there was this pest of a girl. Bond saw luck as a woman, to be softly wooed or brutally ravaged, never pandered to or pursued.
When Vesper gets kidnapped: This was just what he had been afraid of. These blithering women who thought they could do a man's work. Why the hell couldn't they stay at home and mind their pots and pans and stick to their frocks and gossip and leave the men's work to the men?
And now for this to happen to him, just when the job had come off so beautifully: Bond boiled at the thought of the fix he was in. She gets kidnapped and he's annoyed because it throws a wrench in his plans.
How dare she inconvenience him like this?!?!? Doesn't she know how annoying it is? Here's the part where he's being tortured and thinks about her being gang-raped: Through the red mist of pain, Bond thought of Vesper.
He could imagine how she was being used by the two gunmen. They would be making the most of her before she was sent for by Le Chiffre. He thought of the fat wet lips of the Corsican and the slow cruelty of the thin man.
Poor wretch to have been dragged into this. When Vesper's bound in the car with her skirt over her head and Bond's also kidnapped, next to her: The appeal of raping the woman you "love": And he knew that she was profoundly, excitingly sensual, but that the conquest of her body, because of the central privacy in her, would each time have the tang of rape.
Loving her physically would each be a thrilling voyage without the anticlimax or arrival. Bond often talks in this book about getting the "arrogant, private, cold" Vesper to bend to his will in bed.
Not only is he talking about spicy rape condiment to make sex more appealing always like the first time, when they fight you a bit, I guess he's saying but in an earlier passage he says he wanted her cold and arrogant body.
He wanted to see tears and desire in her remote blue eyes and to take the ropes of her black hair in his hands and bend her long body back under his.
Crying during sex is just such a turn-on. Her lover is a captive and they'll kill him if she doesn't obey. She ends up nobly killing herself in order to 'save' Bond, to which he responds with deep hatred for her and referring to her as a 'bitch' again.
In the name of research, I re-watched the Casino Royale movie. I must say I find it vastly superior to the book. It embraces all the same plot points and basic ideas, but manages to make both Bond and Vesper Lynd into much better people than they are in the book.
Also, Eva Green as Vesper brings some much needed cheekiness and teasing to the role. This creates a sexual tension between her and Bond that was stronger than that of the book.
Neither of these attitudes is as charming as her pretty, sassy, and smart character in the film. The gambling is not as boring as it is in the book, and you don't have to endure Bond's snide comments about anyone who's not white.
Not to mention the beautiful, amazing, talented, gorgeous, brilliant, superb Dame Judi Dench is in the film as M. If you know me at all, you'd know that me saying that the film is better than the book is absolute blasphemy.
This is only the second time I've ever thought this in my life. So you know it's serious. View all 52 comments. Still one of the best book buys I have ever come across!
Casino Royale did not blow me away - it is a bit dry and slow. I wasn't going to let that deter me from my quest to work th I think I read From Russia With Love first and, FRWL will always be my favorite Bond book and movie , but I had to go back to the beginning a read the Fleming bond books straight through.
I wasn't going to let that deter me from my quest to work through the series, but it did take some getting used to. I am not sure if it is just that it is from early in Fleming's writing career or if it is just tough to feel comfortable with my image of Bond as I was reading words from his creation.
I am reminded of when you go back to watch the first episode of a sitcom while you are 8 or 9 seasons in and none of the characters are developed or comfortable yet.
One thing that surprised me was that the more recent Casino Royale movie did include most of the story from the book view spoiler [trading Texas Hold-Em for Baccarat hide spoiler ].
It had been years since a bond movie include plot lines or plot points from Fleming's works, it was kind of cool to see! If you just want a taste of Fleming's Bond, go to From Russia With Love , but if you want to experience the whole adventure, be sure to start at the beginning!

Then the soul-erosion produced by high gambling--a compost of greed and fear and nervous tension--becomes unbearable and senses awake and revolt from it.
James Bond suddenly knew that he was tired. He always knew when his body or his mind had had enough and he always acted on the knowledge. This helped him avoid staleness and the sensual bluntness that breeds mistakes.
Thus begins Casino Royale , which in launch The scent and smoke and sweat of a casino are nauseating at three in the morning.
Until Harry Potter appeared in the rearview mirror of his Aston Martin, Bond may have been the biggest literary franchise of the 20th century, thanks in large part to the success of twenty-five and counting official movies.
In terms of film franchises, Bond is second in sustained popularity only to Godzilla, with the jolly green giant generating twenty-nine Japanese produced movies and six American ones.
Interestingly, Godzilla arrived in cinemas less than a year after Bond made his debut in booksellers. As a kid, I loved both characters.
The debut novel by Ian Fleming is stark and claustrophobic, with a handsome visual splendor, spareness of description and a bitter dose of nihilism.
Racist and sexist epithets are occasionally thrown in like firecrackers but rather than come off as moral defects for Fleming or date the novel, give James Bond texture and combustibility.
Compared to the comic book styling of some of the sillier movies, this is a gambling tale that features spycraft rather than a spy story that features a casino.
At 48, words, I was able to shoot through it in forty-eight hours, roughly the amount of time one of Bond's missions might last.
Bond's assignment begins in the fictional town of Royale-les-Eaux on the coast of northern France, a resort town and site of an "elegantly dilapidated" casino.
Bond takes a break from the roulette wheel, where he's actually been keeping an eye on the baccarat table and a gambler named Le Chiffre.
He walks to his hotel and learns that ten million francs have been wired to him, approved by M, the head of his department in London.
Bond's working capital at the casino now stands at twenty-seven million francs. After checking his room carefully for signs of intrusion, he goes to bed, alone, one hand on a.
His loose spending habits--investing fifty million francs of Moscow's money in a failed chain of brothels--and embezzlement have likely drawn the attention of SMERSH, the Soviet umbrella organization dedicated to smashing agents the acronym translates to "Death To Spies".
With operating capital of twenty-five million francs, Le Chiffre desperately seeks to refill the plundered union funds at the Casino Royale, where efforts to compete with the neighboring casinos has resulted in a well-publicized and anticipated baccarat bank this June.
Intrigued by the prospect of destroying Le Chiffre at the baccarat table, M selects Bond, one his agency's feared double 0's, a designation earned by agents who kill a man in the line of duty.
Veteran of a casino assignment in Monte Carlo and a talented gambler in his own right, is tough as well, a skill he may need if he comes into contact with the two bodyguards Le Chiffre keeps.
Bond passes himself off as a fop gambling away a family fortune made on tobacco and sugar in Jamaica. Mathis and Bond exchanged cheerful talk about the fine weather and the prospects of a revival in the fortunes of Royale-les-Eaux.
The girl sat silent. She accepted one of Bond's cigarettes, examined it and then smoked it appreciatively and without affectation, drawing the smoke deeply into her lungs with a little sigh and then exhaling it casually through her lips and nostrils.
Her movements were economical and precise with no trace of self-consciousness. Bond finds the girl to be professional and easy to converse with.
He recognizes their sexual chemistry and would like to sleep with her, but only after their assignment. Bond later learns her name is Vesper Lynd.
Fleming not only pauses to show and Vesper at work--the pair communicate vast amounts of information about each other in the way Bond offers her a glass of vodka, before her amused glance forces him to suggest a cocktail--but also illustrates the sensory experience of a European casino in the s and how baccarat is played, with a round of twelve players dealt two cards with the option for a third, a winning hand adding up to nine and face cards useless.
To separate the novel from the movie, I should state that while Goldfinger or On Her Majesty's Secret Service are the films typically cited by Bond connoisseurs as the best of the series, with Sean Connery and George Lazenby playing Bond alternately, I'm actually most enamored by Daniel Craig's debut as in Casino Royale In addition to Bond being reintroduced as rougher and more muscular--a killer--than ever before, Vesper Lynd Eva Green and Le Chiffre Mads Mikkelsen nearly eclipse in intrigue.
The bevy of beauties or deranged villains are interchangeable in a lot of these movies, but not this one. Casino Royale functions succinctly and beautifully as a world parallel to the film series, beginning in the wake of World War II rather than the Swinging Sixties, and with a slightly rougher and more wayward Bond.
For the of literature, and the men who defeated the Axis Powers, Asian stereotypes are simply a matter of professional experience and women belong at home cooking or gossiping, not interfering in men's work.
At least one of these prejudices--the one about women's work being in the home--are admirably and tenderly subverted in the course of the novel while the other is an aside that demonstrates Bond's self-isolation more than it does a belief by Fleming.
Fleming's writing is like an Esquire Magazine article without any of the hooptedoodle or parts for men to skip over. Luck was a servant and not a master.
Luck had to be accepted with a shrug or taken advantage of up to the hilt. But it had to be understood and recognized for what it was and not confused with a faulty appreciation of the odds, for, at gambling, the deadly sin is to mistake bad play for bad luck.
And luck in all its moods had to be loved and not feared. But he was honest enough to admit that he had never yet been made to suffer by cards or by women.
One day, and he accepted the fact, he would be brought to his knees by love or by luck. Fleming adorns the novel with twenty-seven splendid chapter titles 8.
Pink Lights and Champagne , 9. The Game Is Baccarat , Black Hare and Grey Hound which is something I always like.
The story surges in momentum from team building to the big game, then view spoiler [Bond's torture by Le Chiffre hide spoiler ] and then view spoiler [Bond's romantic duel with Vesper Lynd hide spoiler ].
Fleming makes the stakes clear in each conflict, articulates both the physical environment and emotional environment succinctly and carries the characters honestly through to their inevitable fate.
In contrast to some of the sillier movies in the series, the action is very grounded and there are barely any pyrotechnics, with playing cards and vodka taking precedence to gadgets.
My complaint--and where I think this novel comes up short in satisfaction to the best films of the series--is Fleming's habit of hewing too close to reality.
Of the four characters who are killed, only one of them dies in front of Bond. The other casualties occur off the page and seem a bit perfunctory.
If you're stuck on a door stopper of short fiction like I was Edgar Allan Poe or reading non-fiction that's particularly heavy or deep, I highly recommend giving Ian Fleming a try to blast some cool fresh air through the musty corridor.
My reading docket is being revise to make way for the second novel in the series: Live and Let Die.
View all 6 comments. Ian Fleming has some poetry in his veins! I would never have guessed that. In his mind he fingered the necklace of the days to come.
The moonlight shone through the half-closed shutters and lapped at the secret shadows in the snow of her body Bond awoke in his own room at dawn and for a time he lay and stroked his memories.
I'm not sure if I'd call him a misogynist. Vesper visits him and treats him with kindness and empathy, and no mockery. Bond is a walking hard-on when he thinks about what's to come: She was thoughtful and full of consideration without being slavish and without compromising her arrogant spirit.
And now he knew that she was profoundly, excitingly sensual, but that the conquest of her body, because of the central privacy in her, would each time have the sweet tang of rape.
Loving her physically would each time be a thrilling voyage without the anticlimax of arrival. She would surrender herself avidly, he thought, and greedily enjoy all the intimacies of the bed without ever allowing herself to be possessed.
Bond and Vesper are in love. Bond cannot or will not process Vesper's complicated back story and the effect she has had on him, so he destroys the memory of his love for her.
Bond may be fooling himself but he hasn't fooled me. Vesper is a defining person in Bond's life, no matter how much he may want to discard his memory of her.
I guess that's what losing the love of your life can do to a person. I'm not sure what I expected, but it certainly wasn't this. View all 36 comments.

We learn that he is a spy and a gambler, a heavy smoker and likes his vodka martini shaken not stirred. But this is almost more of a romance.
Fleming describes a decidedly more vulnerable and human Bond than has been portrayed in films. Fleming, t The beginning of the James Bond stories.
Fleming, then a year-old first time writer, drew from his experience as a British naval intelligence officer during WWII and journalist to color his narrative about a secret agent.
I imagined Fleming writing in the early 50s, the war with Germany still fresh on his mind and the paradigm shift to the cold war with communism ongoing, before the films and the popular success.
The short novel is fairly straightforward. Bond, a talented card player, is sent to beat and discredit a rogue Russian spy in a high stakes baccarat game.
A good beginning, not what I expected, but entertaining and drawing the reader on to more Bond adventures. The first novel about James Bond, the 00 agent, takes place at the Casino Royale.

I believe I'll stick to the films from now on. View all 7 comments. Casino Royale is the first book in the James Bond series.
I've seen the movie -- the new and the old version -- many times, but this is the first time I've actually read the book.
James Bond is a much more complex character than the way he is portrayed in the movies. Yes, he travels to exotic places to kill people and he has more than his share of liaisons with beautiful women The complexity of the character just doesn't come through in the movies.
The movies are pretty much just action-packed fight scenes separated by drinking martinis and having sex. In Casino Royale, Bond infiltrates a high stakes baccarat game in order to bankrupt and ultimately ruin a Russian operative, Le Chiffre.
But Le Chiffre is determined not to be ruined. He kidnaps Bond and Vesper Lynd, setting in motion events that might be the end of Bond.
This book contains one of the most gruesome torture scenes I have ever experienced in a book. The movie starring Daniel Craig depicted the basics of the torture, but left out much of the psychological brutality of the entire scene.
I thought the movie version was traumatic It's an important scene that's integral to the plot of the book. It's not overdone and there is absolutely no detailed description of the event or in the injuries to Bond.
The horror comes in the matter of fact manner in which Le Chiffre explains what he is doing and why, and the description of how he goes about it.
The coldness, the violence, the unfeeling nature of a very evil man In the movie, a knotted rope is used for the attack. But in the book it's a simple household tool, a carpet beater.
Le Chiffre comments that it is easy to cause extreme pain and suffering to a man with the simplest of tools if one knows just how to do it.
The entire scene sent chills down my spine. It is definitely not for the feint of heart. The book has 3 distinct sections -- the baccarat game at the casino, the kidnapping and torture, and the aftermath.
I didn't much care for the first section of the book. I have absolutely no interest in gambling and there is a lot of explanation about the game, the odds, what cards they are playing, etc.
Plus Fleming uses a lot of French, German and Russian words and phrases sprinkled throughout. While that does help create atmosphere, after awhile it just gets old, especially when it's gourmet food, wines, liquors and other details I felt weren't all that important.
For me, it was just a bit overdone. After the baccarat game, the action revved up considerably and the story became much more interesting for me.
The ending is a bit abrupt, but it makes sense that it ends the way it does. After reading this first Bond book, I have a better understanding of the character and why he is the way he is.
I want to read through the entire Bond series this year as part of my goal to read more books that I've always wanted to read, but never actually took the time.
I'm glad I finally read Casino Royale. The book is so much more detailed than the movie. I listened to the audiobook version of Casino Royale from Audible.
I'm glad I chose to listen to the audiobook as as I don't speak French, German or Russian and would have completely flubbed my way through a lot of wine, food, character and place names throughout the entire novel.
At just over 5 hours long, it was a relatively quick listen. Stevens reads at a nice even pace, and did an excellent job with all different accents and voices of characters.
I have hearing loss but was easily able to understand and enjoy this audiobook. Jun 04, Jason Koivu rated it really liked it.
There is a time for every man and this man is of his time. I might go a step further and say, a profession for every man and this man is of his profession, for James Bond is a psychopath and one would need to be in order to do the things his job requires of him.
He is a controllable psychopath. He's not the loner, loose cannon type. He's the loner, well-aimed cannon type.
He's not going to fill up his closet with the severed limbs of his random victims, because the voices in his head told him to There is a time for every man and this man is of his time.
He's not going to fill up his closet with the severed limbs of his random victims, because the voices in his head told him to. He's going to fill up his closet with the severed limbs of his victims, because his boss told him to, and the victims won't be random.
Bond objectifies women, often referring to them as "bitch," seeing them only as a sexual commodity, and so many complain that they simply do not like this literary version of Bond.
The movie versions of the books have conditioned people to like James Bond, portraying him as a dashing man's man who takes what he wants and discards the remains when he's done.
It's cold-hearted, but we realize he's got a job to do

But Bond soon discovers that there is far more at stake than money. Kundrecensioner Har du läst boken? Published in , it is the first James Bond book , and it paved the way for a further eleven novels and two short story collections by Fleming, followed by numerous continuation Bond novels by other authors.
The story concerns the British secret agent James Bond , gambling at the casino in Royale-les-Eaux to bankrupt Le Chiffre , the treasurer of a French union and a member of the Russian secret service.
Fleming used his wartime experiences as a member of the Naval Intelligence Division , and the people he met during his work, to provide plot elements; the character of Bond also reflected many of Fleming's personal tastes.
Fleming wrote the draft in early at his Goldeneye estate in Jamaica while awaiting his marriage. He was initially unsure whether the work was suitable for publication, but was assured by his friend, the novelist William Plomer , that the novel had promise.
Within the spy storyline, Casino Royale deals with themes of Britain's position in the world, particularly the relationship with the US in light of the defections to the Soviet Union of the British traitors Guy Burgess and Donald Maclean.
The book was given broadly positive reviews by critics at the time and sold out in less than a month after its UK release on 13 April , although US sales upon release a year later were much slower.
It has been also adapted for the screen three times: The game soon turns into an intense confrontation between Le Chiffre and Bond; Le Chiffre wins the first round, cleaning Bond out of his funds.
As Bond contemplates the prospect of reporting his failure to M, the CIA agent, Felix Leiter , gives him an envelope of money and a note: With the compliments of the USA.
Desperate to recover the money, Le Chiffre kidnaps Lynd and tortures Bond, threatening to kill them both if he does not get the money back.
Lynd visits Bond every day as he recuperates in hospital, and he gradually realises that he loves her; he even contemplates leaving the Secret Service to settle down with her.
When he is released from hospital they spend time together at a quiet guest house and eventually become lovers.
One day they see a mysterious man named Gettler tracking their movements, which greatly distresses Lynd. The following morning, Bond finds that she has committed suicide.
She leaves behind a note explaining that she had been working as an unwilling double agent for the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs.
She had tried to start a new life with Bond, but upon seeing Gettler—a SMERSH agent—she realised that she would never be free of her tormentors, and that staying with Bond would only put him in danger.
Bond informs his service of Lynd's duplicity, coldly telling his contact, "The bitch is dead now. Educated at Eton , Sandhurst and, briefly, the universities of Munich and Geneva , Fleming moved through several jobs before he was recruited by Rear Admiral John Godfrey , the Director of Naval Intelligence , to become his personal assistant.
Fleming joined the organisation full-time in August ,   with the codename "17F",  and worked for them throughout the war. In Fleming attended an Anglo-American intelligence summit in Jamaica and, despite the constant heavy rain during his visit, he decided to live on the island once the war was over.
In this role he oversaw the paper's worldwide network of correspondents. His contract allowed him to take two months holiday every winter in Jamaica.
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 .
