Well...at any rate--
BTW--to the point regarding the books being more "serious" than the films regarding Bond's relationships with women--well...that may be, but
...it's worth noting that even as far back as the second
book, Live And Let Die
, the final scene had Bond and Solitaire taking part in "passionate leave"....
After that--Diamonds Are Forever
, Bond's musings on not bringing himself to settle down and marry her notwithstanding...by the end, the two are together (and she's boarding in his apartment...).
The endings of Dr. No
, and Thunderball
are similarly "glam".
So...if this pattern in the Craig films of the Bond girls he "gets" all ending up dead continues for much longer (read: if it happens in Skyfall
)...other than eliciting groans and muttered "Can't this poor fellow get a break
be true to the spirit of the books.
