This was a decent attempt at novelizing the classic 1967 British television show The Prisoner The book was published after the show in 1969 and attempts to detail the Village and Number 6 As in the show Number 6 relentlessly deals with is antagonist Number 2 and makes every effort to escape The book mimics the show s smart and uick dialogue filled with literary and classical allusions intrusive and constant surveillance and psychological manipulation I went back and checked out most of the show after reading The book adapts a few psychological manipulation I went back and checked out most of the show after reading The book adapts a few for instance The Arrival where Number 6 arrives to the Village and makes an impulsive escape attempt The episode A B and C where Number 6 undergoes dream manipulation in order to extract the reason for is resignation And episode Many Happy Returns when Number 6 gets away but is tricked into being brought back uestioning who is really running the Village The book indirectly references The Schizoid Man and Hammer Into Anvil but does not incorporate them into the plot The book is spot on with recreating some parts of the show and then creates other elements However in my onest opinion the show did a better job only because the book was limited as to what it presented I would recommend and give this story a chance if you enjoyed the show Be seeing you Surprisingly good for a TV novelization is praise too faint to serve Be seeing you Surprisingly good for a TV novelization is praise too faint to serve book This is not merely a good tie in it s good Speculative fiction Perhaps I shouldn t be surprised Disch is acclaimed as an inventive author who didn t succumb to the limits of is genreThen again such accl This new Penguin edition of Disch s novelisation the one that in The Happiness Secrets Of Joel Osteen his lifetimee resented every reprint of is timed to coincide with the recent miniseries remake Disch contracted to write this #for a small fee while particularly short of #a small fee while particularly short of even before Seashells he caught a few episodes of it on US television ande felt no particular affinity to the series but went on to create An Excellent conceited Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet his own kind of embellishment on whate Ruhestand fr Einsteiger had seen with little regard as toow La criminologie his novel might match the series end result It certainly diverges from it in any number of ways but that s possibly explained by the very likely grafted on notion that this was meant as a seuel Number 6as been recaptured and Farmer Boy he goes through the motions once with similar tenacity but with a ve.

Ry different set of results I didn t see this as a seuel at all but I like the notion that The Prisoner s deliberately inexplicable nature can give rise to different interpretations and outcomes from its themes Given the circumstances of its conception this isn t considered a great Disch novel understandably so although I still found it to be elegant throughout particularly the elouent cat and mouse dialogue between Number 6 and Number 2 which felt exactly as it should and which gives an indication of why Disch was probably right to be offered this gig e made a mentally stimulating job of it than say Philip K Dick possibly would ave despite some multiple identity and dystopian overtones that would now be considered Dickian Certainly one for the completists of either Disch or The Prisoner but in many ways actually better than might be expected I liked the writing style of this the sparseness the cyclical feeling of it I don t know if it d be easier to get if I d known anything in advance if I d seen
series maybe didn t know this was based on a TV series I assumed it d be the other way round with a big name like Disch I found some things weirdly predictable especially the end like I ad seen the series or read something about it at timesWeird anyway but enjoyable and well written well structured Not a favourite but I don t know I might keep it around I do want to try of Disch s work I ave not seen either the original series or the remake I saw this book at the library and thought at first it was the book that the series was based on I rmemeber a friend telling me abou the series and about Number Six After I checked out the book I realized it was written after the series came out I liked the book I realized it was written after the series came out I liked the book until the ending The ending made no sense to me and was a disappointment because I was interested in the story up until that pointPerhaps if I saw the series I would change my mind on that point but after reading the book I ave no desire to see the series Thomas Michael Disch 1940 July 4 2008aka Thom Demijohn Leonie Hargrave Victor Hastings Cassandra KnyeA top level agent Desarrollo de Habilidades Directivas highly skilled and ultra secret Bute wants out and they won t let Let Dai Vol 8 him uit He uits anyway Then suddenly comes the dawn whene wakes up in captivity in a pleasant old style seaside town one packed solid with electronic surve.
