I have been wanting to read Ian Fleming for quite some time and came across this in audiobook one day, having no idea it was truly the first in his series.
Having seen the movie I was familiar with the storyline but enjoyed it just as much if not more than the movie.
Not my typical genre of book, I found it very interesting to listen to the story versus actually read it. The action and characters were very descriptive and I felt a if I was right there with everything that was happening.
I highly recommend this book to anyone, especially as a first for someone who hasn’t read any Bond before.
