The films are much better!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Casino Royale: James Bond 007 (Kindle Edition)
I used to say that films were there so I didn't have to read. However I'm the total opposite now and I love to get stuck in a good book!
And as I'm a fan of the Bond films I thought I'd give the books a go, so I got this to start with. Unfortunately I have to say I was really disappointed and frustrated with how it was written and it wasn't to my taste - but everyone is different so I don't expect everyone to agree with me, this is just my opinion. I got bored within a few chapters but pursued to the end and felt let down. Bond is about the fast car chases, the girls, shooting and lots of expensive toys! These were in the book but they lacked the shine that the films have. I would rather watch the films than read them now. There is a lot more action, imagination and excitement on the screen and they are easier to follow.

i urge you to read more of the fleming books this was almost like a "pilot" episode - pilots tend to be rubbish and not representative of the series as the character is not yet developed.
