I read the Tom Swift Sr. books as a child and again when I got my Kindle in 2010. The books were published under the house name of Victor Appleton. They are an easy read and enjoyable. It is interesting to see how writing has changed since these books were written. Edward Stratemeyer and Howard Garis wrote most of the volumes in the original series; Stratemeyer's daughter, Harriet Stratemeyer Adams, wrote the last three volumes. The first Tom Swift series ended in 1941. In 1954, Harriet Adams created the Tom Swift, J. series, which was published under the name "Victor Appleton II". Most titles were outlined and plotted by Adams.

Letter for you, Tom Swift. Ah, thanks, Mr. Wilson. This is the first mail I've had this week

Letter for you, Tom Swift. This is the first mail I've had this week. You've been neglecting me," and the young inventor took the missive which the Shopton postman handed to him over the gate, against which Tom was leaning one fine, warm Spring day. "Well, I get around as often as I can, Tom. You're not home a great deal, you know

Out in the shop, I think

I really didn’t enjoy the previous book, ‘Tom Swift and His Electrical Rifle’, but one thing I was happy about is that it finally put to rest the rivalry with Andy Foger. Does Tom literally find an underground city of gold?

I really didn’t enjoy the previous book, ‘Tom Swift and His Electrical Rifle’, but one thing I was happy about is that it finally put to rest the rivalry with Andy Foger. Tom rescued Andy from a horrifying death and the young bully seemed legitimately and tremendously thankful. Unfortunately, I got excited too soon and Andy has gone right back to his old ways even sabotaging Tom’s airplane which nearly kills the inventor. I have honestly lost track of how many times Foger has nearly killed Tom and how many times Tom has decided to, ‘handle it himself’. Does Tom literally find an underground city of gold? Yes. So are Tom and his friends now worth 100 billion dollars?

He was too much engaged in reading the missive, for, no sooner had he perused the first few lines than his eyes began to open wide in wonder, and his manner plainly indicated his surprise. He read the letter once, and then over again, and when he had finished it a second time, he made a dash for the house.

    As with previous books this one creates a segue from one story to the next. In this case the couple that Tom and crew rescued from African cannibals turns out to have evidence of an underground city of gold in Mexico. Surprise surprise, Andy Foger discovers that Tom Swift is searching for a city of gold and he and his father trail them hoping to steal the gold. Does Tom literally find an underground city of gold? Yes. So are Tom and his friends now worth 100 billion dollars? No, and I don’t think it takes a genius to figure out how the story concludes.

    This book is a darn site better than the previous book but I wouldn’t say it’s great. Andy tries to straight up murder Tom and his friends and as always Tom decides it’s not worth it to press charges or do pretty much anything about it. Whatever Andy does in the future, Tom deserves it. The story is very much boilerplate Tom Swift with a just few interesting additions. All in all it’s a pretty forgettable story.

  • It needs a more real-life story to it.
    There all about the same thing,
    Maybe more about his past like something
    about his mom

  • In essence, this one of the series gives one pause to consider the plundering of ancient artifacts. Thank goodness, it's only fiction!

  • A fun read.

  • A great, fast read - Indiana Jones, eat your heart out
