Welcome to book club! Get your drinks, snacks, and any notes you have, and gather around for the whole-book discussion on Goldfinger! (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!

Questions to get us started:
1) What are your thoughts on Goldfinger as a villain now that you've read the whole book?
2) We finally met Pussy Galore--what did you think of her as a character, and of Fleming's treatment of lesbians in the book?
3) Were you satisfied with the second half of the book?
4) What were some memorable moments for you from the second half of the book?
5) If you were going to rewrite Goldfinger, what would you change?


This is a spoiler-friendly zone! Everyone is assumed to have read the book at this point, and the comments below will reflect this.

Happy discussing!

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


Reminder that trigger/content warnings for this book, including the second half, are: racism, homophobia, sexism, slurs, violence, torture, drug use, and also discussion of rape/past incest. Please read and discuss what's safe for you. <3

Questions to get us started: feel free to answer any or all of these as you like, and to pose your own!


  1. What did you think of Bond's recollections while he's stuck in the airport in the first part of the book?



  1. Unlike Doctor No in the last book, Goldfinger makes an early entrance--what are your impressions of him as a Bond villain?



  1. Card games and golf, two of Fleming's (and Bond's) favorite hobbies, both show up in the first half of the book. Are you loving Fleming's detailed approach to showing us those things or aching to slash whole swathes of text out of the book?



  1. What are some moments from this half of the book that you found memorable?



  1. If you haven't finished the book yet, what do you think will happen in the second half?


Remember: this is a no-spoiler zone! Please only discuss chapters 1-11; we'll talk about the whole book at the next book club in two weeks.


Happy discussing!
