Teaser Tuesday: Casino Royale

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of A Daily Rhythm. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

• Grab your current read
• Open to a random page
• Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
• BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

My Teaser:

Bond knew exactly where the switch was and it was with one flow of motion that he stood on the threshold with the door full open, the light on and a gun in his hand. The safe, empty room sneered at him.

– Casino Royale by Ian Fleming

  1. Hi Sonia,

    I have to admit that neither hubbie nor myself have ever read any of the Fleming books, although we are both avid ‘James Bond’ film viewers. We have watched both versions of ‘Casino Royale’ and enjoyed each, for their unique and individual portrayals of ‘Bond’ by two such disparate acting styles, in David Niven and Daniel Craig.

    Perhaps it is about time that I read some of the books, although after watching the films so many times, I wonder if that may colour and influence my perception of the books too much?

    Great teaser lines nonetheless and thanks for sharing 🙂


    1. Yeah, I really like the movies, too. I don’t know, but probably it will. I mean, when he describes some scene in the book and I remember it from the movie, that’s what I am picturing.

  2. I read one of the James Bond books a while back. Can’t remember which one. It was an interesting read. Later on I saw the movie. I remember thinking that they were different, but that one wasn’t necessarily better than the other. But then I generally like the James Bond movies.

  3. It might sound stupid, but I didn’t know there were James Bond novels out there. Sounds like an interesting read full of action!

    Thanks for visiting my teaser of Magonia. 🙂

        1. Well there are so many it’s easy to miss a few (a lot, even.) I found out today that Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is based on a book, too – also by Ian Fleming!

  4. I’ve never been a James Bond fan (I am basing this off the movies as I have never read the books) but the teaser is quite good!

  5. Great teaser! I also love the films but have never read the books. May have to rectify that at some point soon. Thanks for visiting! 🙂

  6. I’ve never been a big fan of the Bond movies but I’ve loved the books since I was little and used to sneak them off my father’s bookshelves when he wasn’t paying attention 😉

Say something and make my day!
