Inhaltsangabe

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.

Kritikerstimmen

"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)

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!

I was surprised

I'd never read a Bond novel before, and I was surprised at the literary quality of the writing. The novel is very uneven - long explanations of post-war intelligence networks, followed by long descriptions of casinos and gaming. But it all works, for me, and the last quarter of the novel, with Bond and Vesper in the little French hotel and the tragic trajectory of their love story was unexpectedly sensitive and wise. Sure, Fleming is a sexist, but he isn't ONLY a sexist; there's more to him.
Dan Stevens' reading is excellent, as one would expect of him.
