Origin. Fans of James Bond 007 are those readers most likely to enjoy reading the new prequel to Casino Royale, a novel by Anthony Horowitz titled, Forever and a Day. I especially enjoyed the focus that Horowitz has on the origins of Bond’s work as 007. We see where his cigarette case came from, and his preference for martinis. We learn the test that Bond had to pass to become 007 and what his first case entailed. It’s clear that Horowitz had fun being true to Ian Fleming and to the character of Bond, and I know I had fun reading this installment in the series.
Rating: Four-star (I like it)
