The Avengers #1 The Floating Game Read & download Ð PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook While EMMA PEEL is preparing to depart for the United States as the bride of a gorgeous female Russian spy JOHN STEED is tracking down the toughest Mafia gangster who ever. The latest in my occasional project to read some of the old TV novelisations and original TV tie ins that have sat unread on my shelves for yearsThis is actually the second original novel based on the Avengers TV series The TV series had changed so much between the first Avengers book The Avengers and this new first book that it was virtually a different show And that first book was never going to be reprinted So restarting the series at 1 makes senseAt the time this was published the TV series had a fairly distinctive style far from realism The book captures well the way the main characters speak but it s entirely different from the flavour of the series The author was probably intentionally taking the opportunity offered by a book to put the characters into situations that couldn t be shown on television There s rape and torture and a sadistic cross dressing lesbian Emma stands by while terrible things are done to people to preserve her cover It s a bit nastyThe humour works well on the brief occasions it appears especially during the scenes where Steed campaigns for a parliamentary election It s a page turner and there are moments of writing flairThere are several severe miscalculations Firstly in the earlier chapters we are privy to Steed s thoughts They are not thoughts I could imagine him having nor want to imagine him having It is always a problem with novels about larger than life TV characters by the time the audience picks up the book they probably have an idea of who the character is from watching him on TV an idea that may substantially differ from the author s So it was for me in this case In such cases I believe that if we must know the character s thoughts let them be practical observations and speculations regarding the plot at hand nothing Secondly the ending is all wrong view spoilerAvengers writing 101 Steed and Mrs Peel have to save the day They can t be rescued by boring everyday realistic spies hide spoiler

Television had a huge impact on me and my friends as we grew up in the 1960 s Our heroes had names like James West Napoleon Solo Lucas McCain The Rifleman and James Bond Mine was John Steed I never missed THE AVENGERS Seeing THE FLOATING GAME with its yellowing pages in my stack of unread paperbacks brought a wave of nostalgia That was a time when television shows often had tie in novelizations I m guessing that DARK SHADOWS had the largest number of original books for a series THE AVENGERS and later THE NEW AVENGERS in the 1970 s had theirs too THE FLOATING GAME was the first one released If you are unfamiliar with THE AVENGERS there is no sense in reading this book The story is a bit contrived than some of the outlandish episodes in the series with the Russian government teaming with the Mafia to bring down members of the British government Steed is asked to run for election in the place of one of the victims while Emma Peel his partner and of particular interest to me as a regular viewer infiltrates a gambling casino as a dealer Logical and nuanced plotting are both cast aside in favor of scenes recalling how the characters behaved onscreen in their endearing moments When the plot is revealed to Steed that he will be running for office a government official asks the dreaded uestion You aren t a Liberal are you Steed returns a reassuring look of horror complete with a raised eyebrow The idea in the paperbacks was that they could get away with including mature moments than were permitted on television Occasionally this might involve an occurrence that was a bit violent than we were accustomed to seeing but it usually meant that the sexual innuendos were a tad graphic They are very mild today but a fan of the series would have finished a chapter with a I knew it smirk on the face THE FLOATING GAME did bring to mind much of the interplay that I enjoyed watching in THE AVENGERS and there were a couple of times when the memory caused me to laugh out loud Like the original DARK SHADOWS books though it was no substitute for the real thing

Very odd book in that it captures the feel of an Avengers story while having an undercurrent of edginess that feels very offThe mix of harsh violence and the uaint uirkiness can be jarringThe two leads sound right and the bad guys are suitably odd and evil but there are moments where the writer seems to be seeing what he can get away with
