Maybe 1.5. The story of Doc defending an African kingdom against a scheme to overthrow the rulers and loot the mineral wealth is competent, if standard for the series. However what were meant as exotic details of African color are now cringeworthy stereotypes: sacrificing pretty white women to jungle gods, cannibalism, superstition. Not that there wasn't worse written at this time, but it's still rather unpleasant.

Of all the pulp era heroes few stand out above the crowd, Doc Savage is one of these. With his 5 aides and cousin he adventures across the world. Fighting weird menaces, master criminals and evil scientists Doc and the Fab 5 never let you down for a great read. These stories have all you need; fast paced action, weird mystery, and some humor as the aides spat with each other. My highest recommendation.
This is an enjoyable Doc Savage story, though it does contain some hints of racism by today's standards (remembering these books were written in the 30's). Also it does contain one dreadful mistake - piranhas (though they aren't actually named as such) in Africa!

Because it's written by Lawrence Donovan, you would automatically suspect "Land of Long Juju" is one of the worst Doc Savage novels. You would be right. Actually, this one's in the bottom eight easily. This is a pointless slog even by Donovan's standards, a poor idea poorly executed, its only selling point a rare venture to Africa by Doc Savage.
