Really liked it when I read it as a kid. Have to read it again to comment though. ( )

This is a wonderful fictional biography. For a long time it was the only thing available about Doc Savage. As a child reading this text was an eye opener. It did two things: 1) Made me realize that everyone else was just as fascinated by Doc Savage, his adventures, and inventions; 2) Confused me into believing this was a real biography, not a literary game. Both things truly helped me in life though and opened up my literary eyes. My hat is off to Farmer for such an ingenius creation. A great read on many levels which I reread every few years just for pleasure. ( )
