    1 thought on “The Monitors”

    1. review of Keith Laumer's The Monitors by tENTATIVELY, a cONVENIENCE - June 26, 2013 How many people start off their day w/ the intention of writing 3 reviews of SF novels written in the '60s by one author? Knowing that there's no pay involved, knowing that money is going to be very scarce in their life very soon. & listening to the music of Arthur Berger & Edward Burlingame Hill on a CBS Special Service Records Collectors', Modern American Music, Series. Only a fool, someone might say. O [...]

    2. This novel was not what I was expecting given the jacket summary or the cover. It's pure, hilarious, laugh-out-loud satire--reminiscent of his Retief stories, but in my opinion more funny throughout. (The Retief stories were often funny satire at the beginning, then turned into so-so action-adventures, then back into great satire.) Also unlike the Retief stories, The Monitors is about the United States--slightly dated, now, since it was written in 1966, but most of the stuff he's making fun of i [...]

    3. When I was a teenager, years before cable TV, the local TV channels would play old movies all day during the weekend. Those "Flint' movies with James Coburn would show up now and then, old Hammer horror films, Doris Day - Rock Hudson movies, Jerry Lewis movies, Elvis movies, Godzilla, Westerns. All sorts of B movies. Every now and then they would play 'The Monitors', based on this book. I remember it as a very odd movie, though often very funny. I don't think I was old enough to really understan [...]

    4. I remember thinking Laumer's novels were pretty funny back when I was in high school, but even then I was aware that the Cold War politics that formed the basis for most of his satire might date them a bit upon revisiting. Well, the bad news is that, yeah, they do come off as rather dated, but on the other hand that gives them a sort of period charm that's hard to resist. This novel in particular (adapted into a cult film by a bunch of Second City vets in the 70s) fares better than most, and eve [...]

    5. Another of Laumer's "everyone is dumber than a rock" books. It's his usual style, so if you're a Laumer fan, you won't be disappointed. The end is a surprise which was satisfying for me.Worth a read if you can get hold of a copy.

    6. The Monitors is a novel typical of Laumer in the '60s; humorous and opinionated observations of society and politics. It's a very non-serious tale of alien invasion. It hasn't aged as well as much of his other work, and many people would now find some of his race and gender beliefs offensive.

    7. This was fairly typical for Laumer, but a little different. He wrote what you'd expect from 1960s action sci-fi -- lots of fight and chase scenes, stereotyping that is still occasionally funny, and an ever moving plot. Laumer wasn't big on character development, instead focusing on commentary on governments and the general population.What was different this time around was the overlap in style with his Retief stories -- the "friends" of the good guys are as bad as the baddies. Aliens have invade [...]

    8. Strange. It held my interest, though was very (very) shallow. Follows around a guy who is (sort of) spying on super-humans (sort of on the human part) who just want everyone to get along. Has a few laughs. Dated writing style. Quick read.

    9. In spite of the excellently surreal cover, the book itself was a largely dated and unfunny alien invasion comedy and a slow read. If you like Laumer's Bolo stories, this isn't like those at all.
