The Monster Wheel Affair Reviews
Shall I start again with my explanation that I was (and I suppose in a way still am) a rabid U.N.C.L.E. fan? Why don't they make TV programs like they used to? Oh well.This is an excellent book, maybe not as good as a couple of others (both by David McDaniel)but still an excellent effort with the agents written well and a lot of action. The adventure sweeps around the world and (as in plots we would see later in other venues), a mystery satellite to be concerned about.Based on my "totally unbiased judgement".... well okay, maybe not totally unbiased as I was a member of the Man From U.N.C.L.E. fan club, purchased everything I could find tied into U.N.C.L.E., built the Aurora scale models of the agents....hummm. Well, maybe I'm a bit biased in favor of Man From U.N.C.L.E.....stuff. BUT this is a fun read and good brain candy.
In the UNCLE tie-ins I've read so far it's honestly not uncommon for me to have trouble (or maybe just lack of interest in the details) following the plot, and this is definitely one of those cases. I didn't mind, though. I came in expecting spaceships and ended with our two favorite agents playing pirate, which suited me just fine. Several references are made to some of McDaniel's previous novels which I particularly enjoyed, like Illya not actually believing in color television and their tendency to play Botticelli while kidnapped since it happens so often. Like the Vampire Affair before it, this one's a fair bit lighter and certainly less stressful than, say, the Dagger Affair, which is definitely a plus for me. Overall a fun but not overly remarkable installment.
This is pretty much a perfect Uncle book, from cool gadgets to witty banter and a great portrayal of Illya and Napoleon. There's even the world's biggest helium balloon. What can you say?
Excellent book adaptation of the TV series. Great spy adventure book. This is how the CIA and FBI should operate. Recommended
