I'm sure there are more worthy literary pursuits than reading the novelisation of Wild Wild West, but I don't care; I had a lot of fun. I've always liked the film, even if nobody else does. Will Smith, Kevin Kline, Kenneth Brannagh, spy-fi, steampunk, westerns – all good things. The book might not have three of them, but it's still got the unashamedly pulpish sense of humour and adventure, and throws in some genuinely interesting historical asides as well. Ignore the looks on the Tube and enjoy yourself. ( )

A novelization of the 1999 film, no more, no less. ( )

Book description
WHEN THE PRESIDENT NEEDS TO SAVE AMERICA, WHO DOES HE CALL?

Will Smith and Kevin Kline are U.S. Army Captain James West and U.S. Marshal Artemus Gordon, tow unconventional secret agents on assignment for President Ulysses S. Grant. Jim West is quick with a charming reply and even quicker with a gun; Artemus Gordon solves problems with sophisticated inventions that are generations ahead of their time. They both like to be the best, and neither one enjoys the idea of sharing the spotlight on a high-level case. But presidential orders have them teaming up on this one.

Both Gordon's search for a beautiful missing scientist and West's hunt for a mysterious rebel leader lead to a malevolent, megalomaniacal, twisted genius named Dr. Loveless. His plan is truly diabolical: conquer America...or destroy it trying. The army is helpless, the President is a targetm and only Jim West and Artemus Gordon can stop Loveless's hellish scheme.

If they just don't kill each other first.
