En savoir plus sur l'auteur

Ian Lancaster Fleming (1908-1964) est né à Mayfair (Grande-Bretagne). Reporter pour l'agence de presse Reuter, puis agent de change, il mène des missions officieuses pour le Foreign Office et se familiarise avec le monde de l'espionnage. Il crée James Bond en 1952, dans sa petite maison de la Jamaïque baptisée Goldeneye. En 1961, le président Kennedy cite Bons baisers de Russie parmi ses dix romans favoris. L'adaptation cinéma de Dr No est aussitôt mise en chantier. Les romans Bond font un triomphe : 40 millions d'exemplaires vendus. Casino Royale est le premier de la série, ici dans une nouvelle traduction due à Pierre Pevel, spécialiste de l'œuvre et excellent romancier, accompagnant son adaptation cinéma (sortie mondiale : 17 novembre 2006). Découvrez le vrai James Bond !

5.0 étoiles sur 5 un livre en or 18 décembre 2010
Par Gwen COMMENTATEUR N° 1 1ER COMMENTATEUR DU HALL D'HONNEUR
Format:Broché
L'hégémonie anglo-saxonne en matière de littérature d'espionnage est incontestable. Et pour être tout à fait précise, quand je dis "anglo-saxonne", je devrais dire "anglaise". En effet, à de rares exceptions près, tous les auteurs qui ont marqué ce genre, de Buchan à Le Carré en passant par Graham Greene ou Eric Ambler, sont bel et bien nés au pays de Shakespeare. Pourquoi une telle hégémonie? Bonne question! Voilà des années que je me la pose sans parvenir à lui trouver une réponse satisfaisante. L'Homo Britannicus serait-il ataviquement prédisposé aux choses du Renseignement? On ne peut l'exclure... Toujours est-il que nos voisins d'outre-Manche excellent dans la peinture du monde parallèle. Oh, bien sûr, si elle est parfois réaliste, cette peinture demeure le plus souvent pittoresque, voire empreinte d'un romantisme et d'une extravagance qui doivent faire sourire en douce les véritables espions, si tant est que ceux-ci lisent des romans d'espionnage... Mais pourquoi pas?... Personnellement, je n'ai rien contre le romantisme et l'extravagance, tant que cela donne des romans excitants qui savent me garder éveillée tard dans la nuit...

Parmi tous les auteurs du genre, Ian Fleming est sans doute celui qui est allé le plus loin dans l'invraisemblance. Ce dernier, pourtant, s'il l'avait voulu, aurait parfaitement pu écrire des romans d'espionnage réalistes, voire hyper-réalistes.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Class never goes out of style 29 août 2002
Par Steve Pearl - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Goldfinger has an effortless grace that is simply beyond most thriller writers. And this is the point; Fleming could really write. Yes, Goldfinger is just a potboiler fantasy, but it is suffused with beautiful writing; elegant simple sentences that contain real wit and character. It was Fleming's longest book and yet compared to a Clancy or a Ludlum it is little more than a short story. But in contrast to the turgid, plot ridden lumps that so many writers today (and in fairness, for the last thirty years) seem compelled to churn out, Fleming's brevity and clarity, his development of character, the pace and humour he injects, all shine out.
Reading again the account of the game of Canasta or, especially, the round of golf, is to feel a sense of joy and appreciation of his sheer skill with words. (In contrast, can any one really read Tom Clancy and not, by about page 400, emit a despairing cry of "get on with it!".)
And Goldfinger is a great story. It's far fetched and unlikely, but it roars along with a logic that lasts as long as the book does.
And yes of course it's dated, and Fleming's views would not hold up to much scrutiny in 2002. But are today's readers such sensitive little flowers that they cannot accept that the ideas and views of another time are totally valid when expressed in the context of that time?
Goldfinger was written by a man who had an instinctive lightness of touch, who was writing when people did not mistake information for knowledge, and who above all wrote for the sheer enjoyment of it all.
And that's what Goldfinger is...sheer pleasure and sheer enjoyment.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 A solid James Bond novel with a few quirks 7 décembre 2006
Par Roger J. Buffington - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
First of all, let me disclose that I really like all of Ian Fleming's James Bond novels, and I particularly like and admire Fleming's lean, understated style of prose. Fleming is underrated as a writer, and James Bond is more than a comic book cutout character.

Goldfinger as a novel has some appealing attributes. The scene in which Bond plays a game of golf with Auric Goldfinger (with the stakes higher than they seem) is a masterpiece. Goldfinger the villain is an ingenious character. The reason I deprived this novel of two stars is first of all that the ending is tacked on almost as an afterthought. Sorry, it just didn't work, and it almost seemed like Fleming reached his page limit, and realized that he needed to wrap up the novel in the next twenty or so pages. Secondly, "Operation Grand Slam" involving a hodgpodge of criminals, seemed highly underdeveloped, and SMERSH would not have dared have a Soviet vessel upload the goal and hightail it to Russia. Nor would it have involved the sweepings of the US underworld in such a plan. It just did not work. Now mind, the idea of robbing Fort Knox is brilliant, and Fleming could have made it work. But here, in my opinion, it did not.

All these criticisms aside, I enjoyed "Goldfinger" the novel, and I recommend it, along with all of the other Bond novels, to anyone who enjoys good writing, a suspension of one's critical facilities for an afternoon, and, of course, James Bond.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 All That Glitters... 30 août 2001
Par S. Cooney - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
This book was far ahead of its time, ignored for the most part after its initial publication, but selling in the millions after the film's release almost a decade later. Give Fleming credit for enormous creative powers in dreaming up a story that, with its castrating laser beams, deadly Korean bodyguards, obese villains and beautiful women, resonated deeply in the darkness of a movie theater. But Fleming's role in helping create modern blockbuster entertainment is only part of the story. The James Bond books as a series are much darker than the films, and "Goldfinger" is no exception, but it's filled with descriptive prose that's among the best of the post-WWII era. Returning to this book after fifteen years confirms an earlier impression that one is dealing with more than a competent thriller-writer here. Though steeped in the Cold War era, and filled with fantastic plot contrivances, Fleming had a keen eye for irony, humor, and the truthful human observation. JFK, while President of the U.S., declared Ian Fleming his favorite author. In fact, as time goes on, Ian Fleming's gifts shine brighter than ever, remaining to be discovered by a new generation of readers.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 bond at it's best 11 mars 2013
Par Antonio E. Checa - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
from all of the bond books, this is my favorite one and it keeps a special place in my heart as it was the first bond book I read. Reading thru the pages of this book I felt I was 007 and was facing one of Bonds most formidable adversaries ever the notorious Goldfinder.

Join Ian Fleming as he guides us thru the world of James Bond and face off Goldfinder!

3.0 étoiles sur 5 A rare case 6 mai 2002
Par Jeffrey Ellis - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Goldfinger was Ian Fleming's 9th James Bond novel and admitedly, it is not one of the stronger entries. Indeed, Goldfinger is one of those rare cases where the film made from the book is actually better than the book itself. The book's plot finds James Bond investigating the gold-obsessed Auric Goldfinger. The case starts largely as a lark for Bond but eventually involves Bond in a bizarre plot to rob Fort Knox. As opposed to Fleming's best works, Goldfinger's plot often feels as if Fleming made it up as he went along and the book's final set piece and conclusion comes across as rushed and just a little bit lazy. In fact, upon reflection, it becomes apparent that most of the book's twists and turns come less from any cunning on Goldfinger's part and more from James Bond simply making a series of stupid mistakes.
That said, it should also be remembered that Ian Fleming was, even at his most uninspired, a far better writer than most of his contemporaries. As such, even subpar Fleming is usually more entertaining than the best of what other writers are capable of. Especially in its opening chapters, Goldfinger has its moments of true wit and it certainly is enjoyable to follow Bond as he subtly manipulates the man's vanity. While this book doesn't feature Fleming's usual strong cast of quirky supporting characters, both Bond and Goldfinger are strong and memorable enemies. While Bond himself comes across as a bit more ruthless than usual (at times seeming to be an almost borderline sociopath), Auric Goldfinger stands as one of Fleming's strongest creations. Incredibly childish at times while still being fully (and credibly) capable of amassing the world's largest fortune, Goldfinger is indeed a worthy villian and, even if his plan disappoints, the man never does. The book is worth a read just for the chance to appreciate the skill with which Fleming creates a villian who, otherwise, could have been a harmless cartoon. As well, any book that features a character named Pussy Galore can't be all bad.
In the end, Goldfinger is lesser Bond but it is a Bond book nonetheless and those who are familiar with Fleming's work will find much to enjoy. (Those with the right sense of humor will certainly find some amusement in Fleming's theory that lesbianism is the result of women getting the right to vote.) Goldfinger is not the type of book that should serve as anyone's introduction to Ian Fleming's Bond. Certainly, both were capable of more than Goldfinger would (at first) indicate. But with its flaws come several pleasures and it is a must for fans of the literary Bond.
