Did Fleming create a lover or hater?

In all the hoopla about Sebastien Faulks’ new Bond novel The Devil May Care, I read this great Guardian/Observer article ‘Bring on the Bond Girls’ by 7 female women on their reaction to the books, feminism, Bond’s sexuality and Ian Fleming’s writing. A few of the musings made me want to read the books, quite a few made me laugh out loud, some of the comments on the misogyny and rape in the books are pretty disturbing. Time to look at the books fresh?
