You want vintage stories written for teens? This is the character you should follow, Tom Swift. Yes, people complain about racism in the books but these stories were written almost a hundred years ago. People don't condemn the Bible for reviling people of the Jewish faith because it's all taken in context; well you can enjoy this book also if you take it in context of the times it was written in. Tom is the adventurous inventor/mechanic/fix-it person extraordinaire and has plenty of good clean adventures, although he does get into violent situations. Overall, this is a great series to stimulate younger minds into thinking instead of pushing x-box buttons for fun.

I first read a Tom Swift novel as a boy, and I shall have to say that I didn't like him nearly as much as Bomba or the Motor Boys. Since this is for people not over the age of eleven or so, it's difficult to judge at my age. As I like motorcycles, and I like stories written a long time ago, I read this. It was, I think, the first of the Tom Swift novels. The plot is simple, full of coincidences that are hard to swallow, but OK for what it was.

I read the Tom Swift and Nancy Drew books in elementary school in the middle and late 1950s. So, these were the original books written decades earlier. I am now enjoying rereading them many years later. I can somewhat understand that the books were updated for release in more modern times. In particular, the negro Eradicate character could be considered racist today. However, I am sorry that the Nancy Drew books were condensed. Today's kids should be expected to read the original (or updated but not condensed) books. Low expectations just produce low results.

Buy this book from another vendor. We were unable to read it. The printing on every left page was bad, like they were running out of ink. This could be a one time occurrence, but the other problem is the print size. If a normal book uses a 10 point font, this was about a 5 point. It was horrible.

Great picture of America at the start of the 20th Century. The settings, the primitiveness of the towns and roads. All things like that. Also shows how terrible blacks were addressed and portrayed in this, a juvenile novel. Cringe worthy at times but show racism as it was in that time.

I was hoping for more historical, but it still entertained

From my son: First one that I have read. I really enjoyed it because of all the exciting twists and turns.
This is the first Tom Swift book I have read. Not a perfectly believable plot in places, but enjoyable nonetheless.
