Far older than my collection of Tom Swift, which started with story #1, this set starts off with a different #1 with much older technology. The sample gives you about 1 and 1/4 stories, the first of which is T.S. and his motor-cycle (always hyphenated). From the story, and the workings of the motorcycle, it is set in a time when the motorcycle was cutting edge technology. So don't expect to be rocked by any technology that post-dates even WWII. The best I can say is that it didn't bore me. Though Tom and his father both suffer from a common malidy found in works of drama, fiction, etc. an unnessesary and forced stupidity or lack of foresight, often used when the aurhor is too stupid or too lazy to move the plot ahead any other way. For instance, after suffering one intruder / robber, and after hearing threats and menicing talk pointed at them, AND even already being in a heightened state of alertness because of previously stolen technology, nobody thinks to lock doors. The worst I can say is that the author uses words and terms, that today might get his work banned. From "darkey", all the way up to "Ni**er" (2x's). Though I did not detect any malice or condesention twords blacks, just a no-nonsence use of words and phrases no longer concidered socially aceptable. And you can hardly fault an author for not predicting the future. There is no racial tension, or putting('s) in place. I only mention this so that people are not taken by surprise when they find them. In the end, if you want to read what I call "Boys Adventure Stories", supposidly in a Science Fiction format, but placed in the 20's, or there about, and aren't bothered by 2nd tier writing, or (todays) offensive racial terms, by all means, this book should do. But if you are offended by dated racial terms, or looking for a book you can't put down, pass this one by.
