Get Smart Once Again!
10 journalers for this copy...
The novel reflects a typical sort of Get Smart adventure, dealing with a KAOS villain named Noman who can change the appearance of his face at will. Unlike a typical adventure, however, Agent 99 (I always did like 99...) only appears relatively briefly in this one. Instead, Max works with a female cryptographer named Peaches. I found her more annoying than amusing--I'd rather have had 99 there! Still, it's chock full of the silly humor and wordplay of the series and I'm glad I got to trade for it with catlass.
This was a fun read. It brought back memories of sitting under the shade our old apple tree reading the short novels of Get Smart & Man from U.N.C.L.E. during hot August afternoons.
I will hold on to this book until I can release it in a proper Maxwell place.
I will release this as a bookring in the memory of Don Adams.

I liked the word play and the Doom's Day Plan list that could be made to mean pretty much anything at the time it was important to the plot. It was the perfect book to read on a lazy post-Christmas day.

FROM THE BACK COVER:
First, Get Smart!, then Sorry Chief
Now Get Smart Once Again
Maxwell Smart, Agent 86 for Control, has often been confronted by the Forces of Evil. But never before has he been involved in such a vast panorama of intrigue, with the fate of the Free World hanging on his every move.
In Max's possession is the coded KAOS Dooms Day Plan, the only copy in existence, and it is up to him to break the code, decipher the Plan, and save the world from destruction. And this terrifying task must be done on the run, for I. M. Norman, KAOS's master spy, is in pursuit, intent on retrieving the Plan so it can be carried out!
With Peaches Twelvetrees, the beautiful blonde cryptographer, to aid him, Max sets forth for New York, Moscow and Peking, desperately trying to find the key to the brilliantly intricate code while eluding the nefarious Norman, whose India rubber face allows him to change his appearance at will.
Will Max at last be foiled by the evil schemers? Will KAOS snatch back the Dooms Day Plan before its dread secret is revealed? Or will Max, once again, outSmart his enemies and save humanity? The Free World awaits the answer.
I love Get Smart as you can tell from my BC name. Also have cats called Max and 99! I am so excited about the dvds of the series being released later this year. Much less excited about the Hollywood movie in the making.
I have 5 of these Get Smart books and this is the one I could never track down so I was very happy when I discovered the bookring. Thanks follygirl. I will read it soon and then send it off to Portugal.
I will send it off to Portugal as soon as I have the address.
This book is a very fun read and as I read along I kept picturing the whole thing like it was… well, like it was a Get Smart episode.
Glad I could join this BRing.
RIP Don Adams, we’ll never forget the laughs and good mood you brought once a week.
I’ll be passing it along to follygirl in the beginning of May, since she’s coming to Lisbon for a short visit.
thanks to all participants in this bookring.
