Welcome to book club! Get your drinks, snacks, and any notes you have, and gather around for the discussion of the first section, "Me," of The Spy Who Loved Me! (If you're here and you're not sure where to find the book, check the resources post in the sidebar on the right!)

Book club is designed to be a place where you can go beyond the Bond movies and delve into another medium with our favorite secret agent. We have questions to help get things started, but there are no set discussions. If you have anything interesting that you want to discuss about your reading experience, comments on the text, or thoughts about how reading the book might have changed your view on the characters in the movies, then do share!

Reminder: Trigger warnings for the book include abortion, rape, violence/murder, and physical assault.

Some questions to get us started:

  1. What do you think about Vivienne Michel as a character, and as the protagonist of a Bond novel?

  2. Vivienne has had a hard time in life by the time we meet her, particularly because of Derek Mallaby and Kurt Rainer. Why do you think Fleming might have given her this backstory?

  3. What was memorable about this section of the book for you?

The whole book discussion is later this month; please no spoilers for the end of the book yet. Happy discussing!
