Mostly enjoyed but still made me cringe

Review:

Casino Royale - Ian Fleming, Simon Vance

I thought it was a fairly fun book to read. I’ve never read a Bond book before and think I’ve only seen one or two movies and remember nothing about them. If it weren’t for the horrible, absolutely terrible sexism, I would have likely loved it. Yes, I completely understand that it must be taken in context of the time and the sort of man Bond is and his profession. I get all of that but it still took away from my enjoyment of the book.

 

I don’t think I’d read another but I’m glad I read this one. I don’t know. Maybe I would read another. Maybe.
