The most famous agent thriller: James Bond

His name is Bond, James Bond. Britain’s most famous agent, who prefers his martini shaken rather than stirred and has a pronounced weakness for beautiful women. He is best known for the film adaptations with actors such as Daniel Craig, Sean Connery and Roger Moore. The author Ian Fleming wrote the adventures of the secret agent back in the 50s. So you may not be surprised to learn that Bond is much more chauvinistic and hard-boiled here than he was on the big screen. Even without pictures, his missions are gripping – Fleming’s vivid descriptions and Oliver Siebeck’s congenial performance make sure of that. This is where you discover the real James Bond. In his first case, head of the secret service M sets his best agent James Bond on the Russian agent “Le Chiffre”. Both spies meet in the casino and play a dangerous game at the baccarat table. Bond’s plan is to ruin his Russian opponent financially, so that his bosses will consider him unacceptable and eliminate him. It seems to work, as “Le Chiffre” loses and loses. But then an attractive female agent crosses Bond’s path and the rules of the game change…. Written in 1953 by Ian Fleming, hijacked Casino Royale takes you into the fast-paced and exciting world of secret agent James Bond. Tough, cynical, sometimes even contemptuous of women: here you get to know James Bond in a completely different way than in the film of the same name. This makes his transformation even more interesting.
