    Because it followed Casino Royale and sucked compared to it. At least for me.

    I would rather see (new) Bond and read The Hobbit. The LOTR trilogy was fine, but it wasn't all that. Just a way to get through another 3 to 3.5 hours in a day without having to think.
    People too weak to follow their own dreams will always try to discourage others.

There'll be some humour (more perhaps in the films than the books). That, I think, is probably about as far as the virtues go.
    Don't think Fleming even wrote a book called Skyfall...

    But I've liked both of the last 2 Bond movies, so I'll give it a whirl.
    Also looking forward to The Hobbit as I enjoyed the move and even the old semi-animated move from the 80s (?).
