M A S H Goes to Maine is Richard Hooker's hilarious sequel to his classic book MASH and, for once

M A S H Goes to Maine is Richard Hooker's hilarious sequel to his classic book MASH and, for once. Living a quiet life in Maine after the Korean War, doctors "Hawkeye" Pierce, "Duke" Forrest and "Trapper John" McIntyre are at it again, trying to establish a medical hospital while fighting the snobbiest doctors in America. Funny and very relaxing, you'll love "M A S H Goes to Maine".

Richard Hooker (aka Hiester Hornberger J. no seriously, that's his real name) wrote one of the funniest books about war ever: MASH. Anytime a book is successful, they're going to demand sequels

Richard Hooker (aka Hiester Hornberger J. Anytime a book is successful, they're going to demand sequels. MASH goes to Maine was Hooker's attempt at a sequel, but it fails to capture the joy and zaniness of the original. When you take away the madness that is war, the antics of Hawkeye and Trapper John in the stateside world just don't really fit in. They still try to rail against oppressive authority, but Richard Hooker (aka Hiester Hornberger J. no seriously, that's his real.

M A S H Goes to Maine is a novel written by Richard Hooker and originally published in 1972. A sequel to 1968's book MASH: A Novel About Three Army Doctors, it features several of that novel's characters back in rural Maine after the Korean War armistice. An attempt to adapt M A S H Goes to Maine as a feature film sequel to the 1970 movie was unsuccessful.

Richard Hooker, who penned the Pulitzer Prize winning book "MASH: A Novel About Three Army Doctors", served . Nevertheless, there were efforts to adapt M A S H Goes to Maine into a film

Richard Hooker, who penned the Pulitzer Prize winning book "MASH: A Novel About Three Army Doctors", served as a creative consutant and writer for the 1970 Robert Altman Oscar-winning film "MASH" as well as the CBS-TV series "M A S H". Nevertheless, there were efforts to adapt M A S H Goes to Maine into a film. Both books' portrayals of the characters were entirely independent of the movie and TV characterizations, as they were based upon Hornberger's own experiences after the Korean War, which included a stint working for the United States Department of Veterans Affairs, qualifying for his surgical boards and then setting himself up in private practice.

I read this story years ago, before the TV show got so
popular, and I came across it again while I was looking
for, The Dirty Dozen, and decided to read it one more time.
It indeed is the story that the hit TV show M*A*S*H was based
on, with of course some tweaks.
Sadly the Korean War, is always that "other war", that was never
resolved, and in reality has never ended.
And that has been never more obvious than in the last few years.
In the book, as in the TV show, the Dr's never let any one forget
that they are nothing more than "Draftees", and therefore just
"misplaced" civilians,put there on the Army Plan.
The book showed some disdain for Military Rules and Regs, but
not nearly as much as the TV show did in it's later years, but I
digress, and will get back to the book.
The book is an enjoyable read, as it was the first time I read it, lo
so many years ago.
And it does end about the same way as the TV show did, with everyone
saying, This was not fun, but we will keep in touch, when we get back home.
But as many of you that have been in situations like this know, that does not happen.
The Dr's in the book, end up taking different flights, in different directions, and their
Goodbyes are FINAL.
Enjoy a trip back in time.......

I grew up watching the series as a teenager, I really didn't appreciate it until becoming an adult though. I ran across this book and wanted to read what started it all, Ive seen the movie and knew it was slightly different than the series so I knew going into it the book may be the same way. At first I really didn't know what to think about it, maybe slightly disappointed but I pushed on determined to finish it and by the middle of the book I found myself laughing at the antics the swampmen were pulling off. This turned out to be a great read, if you keep an open mind. The series was awesome, probably my top 3 if not #1. My expectations were high, and in the end I think anyone that enjoyed the series will enjoy the book . One day I will start over and read it again, and that's rare for me.

As many of the reviewers have done, I've seen the movie classic and I've followed the adventures for many years of M*A*S*H on TV and I've found the legend to enrich itself with its way of showing the futility and senselessness of war.
Richard Hooker's original book is the basis for all of this. The classic stories based on Trapper John and Hawkeye Pierce along with Colonel Blake and the ever-present Radar O'Reilly live on in war-protest infamy. The very mention of M*A*S*H conjures up rebellious images of anti-war attacks. The book was written in the 60's and was meant to show the insanity of what it was to work in the front lines of combat medical facilities. How people were able to deal with the constant trauma and death of young people is dealt with. On both the serious level but also on a comic plain to alleviate mental anguish of dealing with constant fear, death, fatigue and the feeling of helplessness which ages all young people in war.
In combat zones one always looks at the combat branches such as the infantry, artillery and armor to be the most exposed to trauma and death. While very true, we often overlook our medical personnel who are involved with trauma, death and fatigue just as much as if you were a ground-pounder in the combat fields.
Hooker's stories such as the football game and the epileptic whore are all gut busting funny. Many of the stories from the book transferred very well to the movie. In fact even though M*A*S*H tells the stories of a frontline medical unit in Korea when the book was turned into the movie in the early 70s, it did in fact become the firm basis of protest to the Vietnam War. In fact when it came out I was on active duty and many of the EM and yes officers related very well to the movie.
This is the second time I've read the book. It still remains a classic in my mind and serves to one and all that man must think very seriously before committing people to fighting wars.

If you have seen the movie, then you can skip 3/4 of the book. I found the last quarter of the book interesting and funny. I was disappointed that I could not quite put myself in the situation of the doctors in the story. But, I did learn many facts from the book that were not told in the movie.

Having been a fan of the movie M*A*S*H* and the television series, I wanted to read the book that started it all. I was surprised by a few things. First, there were sequels to the original book. Second, the difference between the book, the movie, and the television series is a widening chasm. After reading the book, I was surprised that a movie was even made. I tend to like to read sequels and complete series of books. The sequels to this book were very hard to find and often had to be purchased as battered paperbacks from third party sellers as they are out of print. It turns out that this was for good reason.

The original book is good. The good qualities diminish over the sequels.

I really enjoyed the stories of the 4077th. I felt like I knew them because of the TV show. Some of the things that happened are hilarious and laugh out loud funny. They really did some outrageous things when they had no wounded to patch up.
I read it twice and loved it as much the second time. Nothing boring in the whole book.
