Reviews by Garland Coulson

Gladiator

by Philip Wylie

An amazing story, I first read years ago and was pleased to find in ebook format.

Evokes striking images of the time the characters existed.


I had always wondered if this character was the inspiration for Superman who was first published in 1938, but according to Wikipedia, Siegel signed an affadavit that claimed Superman was not influenced by Gladiator.


In any event, a superb story and a much stronger character in my opinion than Superman.

Cary Allen Stone
Author Cary Allen Stone is fascinated with what makes criminals tick. In life, things are rarely black or white and readers of his award-winning Jake Roberts novels find themselves rooting for both the hero and anti-hero.
