Disch This new Penguin edition of Disch’s novelisation – the one that in his lifetime he 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 cash even before he caught a few episodes of it on US television and he felt no particular affinity to the series but went on to create his own kind of embellishment on what he had seen w

    EBOOK The Prisoner A bit disappointing I'm a big big fan of the original TV series and Disch's seuel I suppose we could regard it as the non canon eighteenth episode? lacks something spark or surreality The Village doesn't feel like Portmeirion; there's a lot of long winded mazy dialogue that would have been done a lot pithier in the serial In his defence I believe Disch had only caught a few episodes when he wrote this He has a good arch style though and thi

Disch He's a top level agent highly skilled and ultra secret But he wants out and they won't let him uit He uits anyway Then suddenly comes the dawn when he. 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 his 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 episodes 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 his 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 honest 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 this 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 his genreThen again such acclaim is all too common thrown at any author who deviates from the most predictable forms Disch is than this His literary aspirations shine through in both form and contentHis dialogue is snappy and referential replete with wry insight and involved psychology His style is somewhat contrived but that is difficult to avoid with an author who deploys such a deliberate and controlled handAnd this contrivance this self aware clever style is in no way out of place in the Prisoner universe Like McGoohan Disch is twisting and playing with the tropes of spy literature including its trite dialogue and mixing them with post modern counterculture deconstructionPerhaps the most surprising part is how well his voice in this novel matches with the television series itself The inscrutable layers are there as is the unyielding heart of six the crushing weight which at every turn you feel must finally overcome him and all the multivariate allusions to how his predicament parallels the sum of human experience imagined as a struggle between the individual and communal urgesI don t usually include examples from the books in uestion but there is one which I feel illustrates perfectly how Disch s writing meshes with what made the series great Feel free to skip it if you d rather read it for yourself though it s a momentary insight not a plot point At one point Number Six has again escaped to London and is trying there to make contacts to tell his story and to seek allies to protect him from return He rushes about the city in a furor contacting anyone trying to decode stolen tapes calling offices trying to set up appointmentsAt every turn he is met by difficulty His calls are not returned appointments are put off and no one can find a machine to play the stolen tapes Six is wracked by paranoia seeing everywhere the hand intent to snatch him back infiltrating everyone and everythingThen he realizes that being trapped so long in The village he had grown used to it to its constraints but also its convenience its minuteness He realizes that he had merely forgotten that the world is a difficult confused maddening place that seems to set upon you at every turn to inconvenience you and drive you backThe poignancy of this simple insight to me shows all the strength of Disch s storytelling skill and grasp of psychology and than that unveils a new and fundamental truism about the world of The Prisoner and the changes it has wrought in Number SixI have a great ardor for the original series but this has hardly made me ready to accept all interpretations I found the most recent televised reimagining to be sadly lacking but not so this book It extends itself exploring the mythology not limiting itself to the content of the show But then how could any author hope to capture the tone of such an unpredictable ever changing creature without being similarly bold and unfetteredSome hardliners may resent the direction the book takes but I appreciated that Disch was not content to wrest McGoohan s laurels preferring to draw high his aim in hopes of winning his own In my purview he succeededThen some months later I was in a comic shop in midtown Manhattan and came across a book which listed and rated books which were tie ins to films and television series Curious I thumbed through it to see if there was an entry on this book To my edification there was and it read This is the single best tie in novel ever written
