    One thought on “The Avenging Saint”

    1. Wow I SO enjoyed this book the first I ve read of the long Saint series 82 years after first publication, the language is, unsurprisingly, now dated However, like Shakespeare and Austen, Charteris style, pace, humour, and use of the English language is so precise, vividly imaginative, and superbly evocative that it would be disasterous to even contemplate rendering Knight Templar 1930 into modern 2012 language Therein lies the skill and longevity of a truly great author Chapter 1 commences with [...]

    2. having pretty much only been aware of the saint from the late seventies interpretation return of the saint I was expecting a poor man s James Bond wrong I wast only does the saint predate Bond this title was first issued in the thirties but the saints slightly outlaw status make him a hero in the ilk of Bruce Wayne minus Batman or V from the V for Vendetta graphic novel film.e saint remains on the side of right after all but is outside the estaishmente prose within the book is flowery and Simo [...]

    3. I first met Charteris dashing, witty, wicked and yet virtuous swashbuckler when I was about tend I ve been trying to match his tired worldliness since that is all of Simon Templar s style I ever could match and wit since boyhood I miss this world and always feel a bit better about myself and my outdated values when I spent a few hours with the wonderfully debonaire adventurer of those bygone Edwardian days

    4. This is a sequel to The Last Hero Like most other books in the series, this is full of wit It is well written, has an engrossing plot, and a beautiful female sidekick What could you ask for

    5. I love the Saint The older books bring back a time when we truly believed that a few men could make a big difference In this book, the Saint continues to foil a plot to start a second world war Keep in mind this book was written before the start of WWII He meets a lady who is in many ways his equal and his friend Roger falls for her We ll see how that turns out in future books.

    6. Loving it A fine continuation of and to THE SAINT CLOSES THE CASE aka THE LAST HERO So much taken care of and yet some things left tantalizingly open for further speculation in future books.

    7. Originally published on my blog here in September 1999.Following The Saint The Last Hero, it must have been quite a challenge for Charteris to know where to take the Saint next He hardly hesitated, however, before writing the third novel in the saga, Knight Templar The villain, Rayt Marius, is back, still intent on world domination by provoking a war Simon Templar follows him to England, seeking revenge for the murder of Norman Kent and overlooking the fact that he has become one of Britain s mo [...]

    8. After the excellent The Saint Closes the Case, this was a bit of a letdown I can t say much without spoiling Closes the Case, but this doesn t really wrap things up The story itself is pretty dull until almost halfway through There s a lot of talking as Charteris tries to explain things for those who have not read the previous book Once things get moving, though, the story does improve somewhat, though I thought the ending was flat Two things bug me 1 Sonia takes her kidnappings and rescues way [...]

    9. Battle, Murder Sudden DeathSo goes the cry and motto of the Saint, a man living in a world that is not his He will defend the damsel in distress and battle the wicked, not being shy about his methods or the crazy, dangerous stunts to achieve his goals The Avenging Saint is the 2nd meet with the deadly Rayt Marius from The Saint Closes the Case.For all those who love adventures with the spirit of a buccaneer taking on the odds, this book is for you who also choose the world of the Saint.

    10. reread after many years another dastardly plot foiled wonder what charteris would think of the manufactured wars of the 21st century that so benefit oil and defense industries at the expense of so many lives lost

    11. Good old fashioned 30s adventure I envy these Edwardian heroes and their moral certainty Very enjoyable on the whole, although the repeated descriptions of how great the Saint is get tiring after a while Still very much worth reading, if you can find a copy.

    12. I grew up on the Saint It s not big and it s not clever, but I will always have a soft spot for these books I ve been wanting to get this one for years The Saint saves the King s life and is forgiven all his crimes just as Scotland Yard closes in It s completely nuts and I love it.

    13. The early adventures of The Saint aren t the best I rather prefer the later, ingenious, ones but this book is OK in any case.

    14. I ve had quite enough of gay swashbuckling for the time being I d begun to feel as if I were being hit over the head with a stick of candy floss.

    15. Pre WWII AdventureA plot to conquer and rule the world finds the Saint saving us in the nick of time Lots of swashbuckling The excitement may be too much.
