About book: Did you read my review of the first Man From U.N.C.L.E. novel? No? Didn't see my confession of looking back on my "youth" with nostalgia? Oh well... no accounting for taste. :)I was a huge Man From U.N.C.L.E. fan and was probably a marketers dream... Put "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." on it...and I wanted it. I read all the novel tie ins, and a few of them were very good... others weren't. This one comes across as more of a hard-boiled detective novel, not surprising as the author (Harry Whittington) primarily wrote those and I believe some westerns. This was still one of the weaker novels...Tixe Ylno apparently wants to destroy the world..(like KAOS from "Get Smart" who are, "out to destroy the world for their own gain"....rrriiiggghhhttt?). Anyway, as I said, a somewhat weaker novel, but still it's a man From U.N.C.L.E. tie in, and as I said, I liked/like anything Man From U.N.C.L.E. Corrected a couple of typos here...and decided to stop and note, I've ordered a few more used Man From U.N.C.L.E. novels. Got to watch the cost, I wish I'd been more careful and kept the ones I bought back in the 60s. The irony of paying $3 TO $5 FOR A $.50 book is not lost on me(I can't bring myself to order the ones that run like $20...I don't have that kind of "bucks") Still, looking forward to them. Maybe I'm entering my second childhood....err, or adolescence? I've got the entire series on DVD also....
