Zip Dr Strangelove or Ho

Zip Dr. Strangelove, or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb This is unique - a novelization of the screenplay to Kubrick's great film (probably the most brilliant, darkly comic anti-war film ever made), written by one of its screenwriters. So obviously the story is great, but unfortunately the book doesn't add much that the film didn't already cover, and also misses the unforgettable performances of Peter Sellers, George C. Scott and Sterling Hayden. And for some reason the book omitted my two favorite lines from the film: "Gentlemen, you can't fight in here! This is the War Room!" and "You're gonna have to answer to the Coca-Cola Company." An entertaining read, but minus the film's striking visuals and sharp acting performances, it's mostly for Strangelove fanatics only..

A viral Kindle Dr. Strangelove, or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb Let me see if I’ve got this straight. Peter George wrote a novel called ‘Red Alert.’ Stanley Kubrick made a movie loosely based on it, calling in both George and Terry Southern to help with the screenplay. Then George wrote another novel called ‘Dr. Strangelove,’ based on that screenplay. This is that book. What’s remarkable about this is how bad this is. ‘Dr. Strangelove’ just might be my favorite film, so I must assume Peter George had little to do with its excellent screenplay. And, even curioser, is this: the screenplay’s best line, “Gentlemen, you can’t fight in here. This is the War Room,’ is printed on the dust jacket of this novel. Yet, George excised it from his novelization, along with the recall code from the film, OPE.

  3. After seeing this darkly funny movie at Park Ridge s Pickwick Theatre, I went off to the bookstore near the Post Office to purchase the novelization, not knowing that the film had been based on a previous novel by the same primary author, George, entitled Red Alert The book did not disappoint as it followed the screenplay very closely.Both Seven Days in May and Failsafe, two other movies about the threat of global war, were released at about the same time, not long after the Kennedy assassinatio [...]


  4. Interesting book Would have been a whole lot scarier reading it in 1982, when I was 12 years old and living just across the river from Offutt Air Force Base in Omaha We knew that was a target for Russian missiles Glad I didn t know about this book then or I wouldn t have slept for weeks.


  5. My first reaction when I got to the ending was what the hell The point supposedly is the farcical nature of life at times and how worrying serves no purpose With that end, it serves its purpose And does it well




  6. Mentre leggevo mi scorrevano davanti le immagini del film, cosicch ho mantenuto un espressione ghignante durante la lettura di questo fantastico libretto che va gi liscio liscio e che ti lascia alla fine un espressione soddisfatta e un po inebetita per lo spasso in alcuni passaggi poi, il mezzo sorriso esplode in una risata spontanea, tipo a ripensare a quando il Dottor Strana sbraca e perde il controllo della propria mano mutilata, tendendo il braccio in un pieno saluto nazista che non lascia p [...]


  7. This is the third book in a row I ve read from the war genre, including The Hunger Games, and War by Sebastian Junger George s war is in the nuclear era and is written in a dark, comedic style which lent itself to Stanley Kubrick s classic movie version of Dr Strangelove While George s characters are based on real people, he paints the Leaders as bumbling idiots who fumble there way to nuclear war Having observed the wars in Iraq, and Afghanistan I don t believe this to be true If what Peter Geo [...]


  8. I suppose it s pretty bad to read this having not seen the film, but I love anything about nuclear war, it fascinates me, so this really was a must read The story is meant to be a comedy, and although there were moments that did make me smile, there weren t any laugh out loud moments I read that this book was written based off the script, so perhaps some of the elements that made the film so enjoyable are lost in the text The idea is that the Cold War is basically ended by a sequence of military [...]


  9. The bomb explodes, and life on Earth s surface will be extinct in ten months due to the Doomsday Machine Dr Strangelove recommends to the President that a group of about 200,000 people be relocated deep in a mine shaft, where the nuclear fallout cannot reach them, so that the USA can be repopulated afterwards Because of space limitations, Strangelove suggests a gender ratio of ten females to each male, with the women selected for their sexual characteristics, and the men selected on the basis of [...]



  10. I didn t know this was Peter George s novelization of the witty and satiric screenplay by Terry Southern, et al Not my typical fare, but this is a fast and fun read closely tracking the famous flick The switching between bomber Leper Colony, Burpleson AFB and The War Room keep the energy up for quick and funny read Hold true to the purity and essence of your bodily fluids


  11. Dark comic anti cold war novella, which when coming on to review I was surprised to find was a novelisation of a film which was based on a different novel So I m really not quite sure why it exists But will still have a look out for the film.


  12. I just finished it this morning, and frankly it is kind of meh Probably a rare case of the movie being better than the book, likely, in fact, given the book is a novelization of the movie, rather than the other way around I guess now I will have to watch it.


  13. I don t understand the ending They failed The nuclear bomb will explode Dr Stragelove just make a suggestion at last that some proper people live underground I don t really understand how people like this story tell me
