Challengers of the Unknown
Here I am, reading 3 fairly intelligent bks & I blow them off to read THIS?! Ok, ok, it's been a bad few days, I wanted something ESCAPIST & easy to read. Even for Goulart, this was pretty shallow & formulaic. Apparently the characters are DC Comics heroes or some such. I've never heard of them. Goulart obviously hacked this one out to make a living. I reckon it was aimed at 12 to 14 yr old males. Nonetheless, I sortof enjoyed it anyway. [SPOILER ALERT:] Part of what redeemed it for me is the way it has the subtext of the CIA & big corporations, specifically an oil company, attempting to overthrow a democratically elected South American government that's about to nationalize its oil. Sound familiar? Gotta love SF that tells us little boys how capitalism 'works' under cover of a tale about a monster.
