Dude, that guy was sexist. With that being said, it’s my new favorite fictional book. It was so freaking good.
Sometimes it’s just nice to hear about a man’s ideal man, you know? It seems that society is really lacking in the masculine department. Men seem to be neutered, forgetting that they have a specific role to play in society: the dominant, physically-aggressive male. Anyways, back to the subject of James Bond.
James Bond: now there’s a guy I wouldn’t mind emulating. Casinos, high-steak bets – there’s literally nothing about Casino Royale that I didn’t like. Even the ending, as dark as it was, was inspiring. It shows how men are supposed to act in tough situations and deal with tragedy.
Frankly speaking, the movies didn’t do the book justice. The book was far more bloody, making it far more entertaining as well.
“Class” is something that’s missing from our society too; it’s not like it used to be. These days, “class” would be defined by… well, I’m not quite sure what’s considered classy these days, but I’m sure it’s not half as fancy as tuxedos and 1930s sports cars.
With all of this being said, this book has definitely given me a wonderful taste of fiction, as I’m not much of a fiction reader. It’s good to see that there are books out there that are so interesting. It gives me hope that not all books were as boring as Philosophy 101 (it’s not for the light-hearted).
