really liked it

A bit dated, as are all of Fleming's Bond classics, but when looking for straight-to-the-bone, fast-paced thrillers, you can't beat Ian Fleming...and Casino Royale is definitely that. Here you don't find the pages of idiosynchratic philosphizing about death or wine you might find in "Goldfinger" or "You Only Live Twice"...this is Fleming dashing only a pinch of his personal habits in lieu of telling a great story of action and betrayal and of a cold man made colder by a woman.

A great read, even if you don't like any of the other Bond books.
