I wanted to read something easy and fun after struggling with two complicated books ([b:The Satanic Verses|12781|The Satanic Verses|Salman Rushdie|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1281988101s/12781.jpg|1434467] and [b:Reason and Religious Belief: An Introduction to the Philosophy of Religion|90558|Reason and Religious Belief An Introduction to the Philosophy of Religion|Michael L. Peterson|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1171214349s/90558.jpg|87398]). Casino Royal was easy but it was fun only until the middle of the book. The climax happened in the middle of the book and the rest was just dull and predictable. I think there was some propaganda involved so we could understand how bad was the Soviet Russia.
I liked Bond's character and I might read another book in these series.
