The young inventor, Tom Swift, re-enters the lives of a whole new generation. The airship, the electric automobile, the moving picture camera--the tools of Tom's adventures--may seem tame for a Star Wars generation, but a 7-year-old can believably assume Tom's role and is riveted as each escapade unfolds. Patrick Treadway employs a collection of zany voices. Much of the text is narrated in a clear, straightforward way, which allows the young listener to follow the encounters of the colorful participants. Treadway delivers the slightly stilted speech and racial/cultural stereotypes with a gentle tongue-in-cheek tone that mitigates offense. R.F.W. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
Book number 14 in the original Tom Swift series.
Tom Swift has gone through four series and through generations of the Tom Swift family. Quiet Vision has republished the first twenty five titles in the original Tom Swift series. The original Tom Swift series is referred to as Tom Swift Sr.
Quiet Vision tracks Tom Swift from "His Motor Cycle" to "His Electric Locomotive." Many characters reoccur through the series including: Mary Nestor, who Tom eventually marries, Mr. Damon who is always blessing almost everything, Eradicate Sampson and his mule Boomerang who is braver and more intelligent than assumed and many others.
Called an inventor, Tom Swift is more of a talented mechanic with a special love for airships and airplanes.
"Some one to see you, Mr. Tom." It was Koku, or August, as he was sometimes called, the new giant servant of Tom Swift, who made this announcement to the young inventor. "Who is it, Koku?" inquired Tom, looking up from his work-bench in the machine shop, where he was busy over a part of the motor for his new noiseless airship. "Any one I know? Is it the 'Blessing Man?'" for so Koku had come to call Mr. Damon, an eccentric friend of Tom's.
