I immediately decided to take a detour to the library. I found Casino Royale in the Mystery section and then picked up three more mysteries that had interesting covers.

I was hugely disappointed. This book was not what I expected. Where were the chase scenes, the crazy-bad-guy-with-the-complex-plan-to-take-over-the-world, the cool gadgets? Are the movies so different from the original books? I may have to try another Ian Fleming book just to be sure.
The Man who Understood Cats by Michael Allen Dymmoch was the next book on my list.

I really like the cover picture, where the cat and the hat blend together. The book was also very entertaining. Although I did think that cats were going to play a larger part in the story :)
Now I am reading Full Dark House by Christopher Fowler. I'm not sure what I think of this one yet, but I am intrigued by the teaser quote that I shared yesterday.
What are you reading this week? Have you ever read any of these books? What did you think?
