Even given the age of this book and being an adaptation of a TV show, this was an extremely mediocre book. It seems like the author either watched the pilot and wrote the book or was only given script treatments to base his work on. Carter Nash is way more clumsy than he usually was in the show, and Mrs. Nash was far more domineering than she was portrayed by Alice Ghostley. I’ve recently watched most of the series on the internet over the past year and this was NOT a good depiction of a light-hearted sitcom.
The story was fairly well-written, and there were a few chuckles amid the dated humor, but it was all far too repetitive – like this was written for a comic book instead of a proper novel.
