“People are islands,' she said. 'They don't really touch. However close they are, they're really quite separate. Even if they've been married for fifty years.”
― Ian Fleming, Casino Royale

The main theme in

There are two major conflicts in this novel:
-One of them is the external, man vs. man conflict between Bond and Le Chiffre. It is resolved when Bond wins the money and Le Chiffre is assassinated.
-The other is Bond's internal emotional conflct. He finds out at the end of the book that, because he's a secret agent, there is no one that he can trust, and that is going to haunt him for the rest of his life.
