The World is Not Enough was adapted by then-current Bond novelist Raymond Benson from the screenplay by Neal Purvis, Robert Wade and Bruce Feirstein. It was Benson's fourth James Bond novel and followed the story pretty closely, except in some details. For example, Elektra does not die immediately after Bond shoots her ... she begins quietly singing. A minor difference is that Gabor is killed by Valentin Zukovsky in the book unlike the film in which Gabor is shot by Bond.
