Reviews by juicecat


by Philip Wylie

This was an excellent book. The main character become more conflicted as the story moves on and the reader is drawn more and more into the plight of a person who would seem to have everything. Highly recommended!

Tarzan of the Apes

by Edgar Rice Burroughs

I agree with the other reviewers - this book has not lost anything with time. It is a great adventure novel and seems remarkably violent for the era in which it was written. Highly recommended!

The Gloved Hand

by Burton E. Stevenson

Decent murder mystery involving yogis, hypnotism, crystals and other scary (for 1913) New Age stuff. The amateur sleuths are a former cop turned newspaper reporter and a lawyer.

There are some interesting scenes including a coroner's inquest held on the front lawn of the newspaperman's house only a short time after the murder victim was discovered.

There is another instance where the protagonists debunk the budding science of fingerprinting by showing how fingerprints can be duplicated with the aid of some chemicals and rubber gloves.

The only disappointment came near the end when the author sets up a sequel that may or may not have been written.

Still, this was a decent read for fans of the more genteel style of murder mystery.

Deadwood Dick, The Prince of the Road

by Edward L. Wheeler

Chock full of stereotypical Western characters and in no way historically accurate, this book is nevertheless fun to read. The author had never been anywhere near the Black Hills or Deadwood area and probably got his information from equally inaccurate newspaper and magazine accounts of the gold rush of 1876. However, it is impressive that Wheeler wrote these tales when Deadwood was just forming. His descriptions of life out West certainly must have fired the imaginations of future writers of the genre.
