it was amazing

I read most of the Doc Savage novels as a kid and loved them. Adventure, superheros that you could be if you worked hard enough (studied and went to the gym. A lot!) who yet were human in their foibles. I even got my friend Dennis hooked on them (quite the coup. Nobody in school liked the books I read. They were "too far out there" or "beyond your years" according to parents, friends' parents and teachers).
But the one I never read was the original, The Man of Bronze, the book that provided the basis for the myth. I finally got a copy about a year ago (with the original artwork!) and it was wonderful, revelatory, exactly what it advertised, a return to my childhood reading in bed until wa-a-ay too late at night, all that good stuff!
At some point I'll get around to reviewing all the Doc Savage titles I did read. They'll all get five-star reviews and I won't write much about the stories. They're formulaic, dated and from an era with different political agendas.
But by god they were good reads.
