This is flower-picking book where Bond actually comes across a bit normal because he, too, doesn't like Mondays, isn't it?
The card playing doesn't really let up throughout the rest of the series, btw.
Lord, how much card playing can one woman withstand? Doesn't help that I loathe card games (except for Solitaire).

That is one of the mysteries of Bond. How do women fall for him all the time when he always playing cards. It does not make sense. It also give of the mistaken impression that watching someone play cards is appealing to other people.
I was talking about attractiveness the other day with a friend--I told her I was reading about Ian Fleming and the photos of him made me wonder who in the world would find him attractive? She replied, "Times were different then. But he also had money." I think Bond is very much Fleming's ideal alter-ego.

There is a picture of him in traditional Austrian lederhosen in the Bottome bio I read... He clearly was clueless and needed the money.
Yes, he certainly needed the money, especially after he married and had to support a family! His wife was a high-maintenance woman.
