 Just reading ,crocheting, and enjoying naps

How much can you forgive a book for being "of its time"?

 I found this discussion on /books with an example given from Casino Royale. Bond wasn't a great character from the books with the movies making him a "good guy" . Some of the stories posted are pretty interesting.  

  For me, I can only stand so much of those old blouse rippers before I just walk away. Some of those where just bat shit crazy O_O; then you have 50 Shades of Grey.....
