    4.5 star rating for me This is one of the best Ted Scott books so far Very exciting and fun to read I think one thing I would change would to add parts about the native people shown in the cover image, the book doesn t have than 4 sentences of them and I was hoping it would have with them in it Other than that I would recommend this book to adventure, mystery and aviation lovers

    When I took possession of my house in Ozark I discovered that the previous owners had left a number of old books in the garage that they apparently did not want Many of them seemed to be assigned literature for college courses, but there were some older books there and Across the Pacific was one of them Maybe the owner went through a period where she was interested in old books I don t know.I was interested in this because it s about flying adventure in 1928, when flight was still new and the cliffhangers were just being born I did not know when I began reading that these Ted Scott Flying Stories were from the same publisher and mold as the Hardy Boys books.SUMMARYTed Scott is a renowned aviator who has broken several flying records and won fame and glory for his exploits Returning from adventures in Mexico, he learns that air mail flights in the Rocky Mountains are being robbed, apparently in mid transit Thieves are drugging pilots and forcing them to land far from civilization where their cargo and planes are stolen Ted endeavors to catch the robbers, even while he is hired for an ambitious, nonstop flight from Los Angeles to Australia.OVERALL 2.2 out of 5This book isn t that great I was hoping for better flying adventures from 1928 should be amazing, but unfortunately this one is hampered among other things by the straight arrow boy scout mentality that the creators not only wanted to attract in their readership, but I think hoped to inspire and influence.There is something here under the surface of the waters that is a real treat though Planes and pilots fly around without radios or live weather reports They re expected to fix their own planes sometimes in midair, apparently, by climbing out onto the wing There is no control tower at the local airport because there aren t really much in the way of airports No traffic control No boundaries It s no wonder this age of flight was so infatuating to people It was a new frontier, open to seemingly anyone who was willing and daring enough to learn the job.Unfortunately, the writing and story just don t live up to the potential By an amazing coincidence, I took a short break while reading this book to read The Dream Snake by Robert E Howard also published in 1928 That story really isn t anything too special I rate it a 2.6 but it does explore an interesting concept However, I was reminded how far ahead REH was in terms of his writing Even that clunky, bizarre, and barebones tale that was published in the pulps is far superior in pure writing craft than this professional novel, published in hardcover, and marketed to juvenile and young adult readers.RATINGS BY CATEGORYCHARACTERS 2 out of 5The characters are paper thin, and the unending adulation and adoration of the hero gets real annoying real fast Basically everyone thinks he is the greatest person ever and is bursting with pride just to shake his hand, or they are the villain in the book who are the only people who seem less interested in shaking his hand I can see how authors of the time hoped or wanted young readers to think Gee, I wish I could be someone like that but it makes for a troublesome protagonist.Ted Scott himself is the only thing that keeps the story from being a total disaster He is a perfect 1928 boy s hero who never really goes wrong and can basically do any and everything, but there was something about him, a kind of reservation in his dealings with others, that I do like.PACE 2 out of 5So the pace is problematic It s actually brisk, but every chapter is designed to have the reader on the edge of their seat, and that wears thin after a while Most of these cliffhangers feel forced on the reader they don t have a lot to do with the actual story and have weak conclusions Nothing I ve read says this was meant to be released in episodic faction, but it s written that way.STORY 3 out of 5The story is disjointed and not entirely interesting Thieves staging robberies of air mail could be interesting, except that I thought the book was going to be about Ted Scott s flight across the Pacific Ocean Instead, that history making journey only comprises the last two or three chapters The constant introduction and solution of a crisis each chapter is also boring.The book is saved partly by the subject matter and enthusiasm I have read that the probable real author, John W Duffield, exhaustively studied books and magazines on flight, and thus most of the material about the planes and how they operated feels accurate I get a kick out of thinking of a young reader allowing the story to put them in the cockpit, flying through the skies.DIALOGUE 2 out of 5I wonder if people really talked like this I think the dialogue was purposely scrubbed to influence juvenile readers, but I am sure a lot of the terms were also completely accurate for the time There is a lot of gee statements in here, but also some other expressions I have never heard before There is also a particularly racist phrase the only example of racism in the book, or even acknowledgement of the existence of race at all that would probably bother a lot of people today, but was apparently normal enough to be included in juvenile fiction back in 1928.STYLE TECHNICAL 2 out of 5This one is hard to rate The writing is typically clear and easy to understand it was written for teenage boys, I think , but there is nothing special either This is probably to be expected from any publishing house that uses a pseudonym author and expects everything to be somewhat bland and conformist.However, the author does use some descriptive phrases that honestly made me giggle The rosy fingers of dawn is one of them I had heard of that particular assembly of words, but never seen it in actual print.

    A scandal in the Air Mail Service leads a brave airman to investigate The legendary Ted Scott who is known throughout these books world He has close calls and encounters but can somehow come out of them The Seventh story of the Ted Scott Series by by Franklin W Dixon is based in the world and its air As I said the genre is mystery and adventure with some others mixed in The story is told from third person but always follows Ted Scott The message of the book is that you should always follow your dreams and if something gets in your way, you overcome it and get ahead of it The story is very intriguing and you get sucked in I have read multiple of this series and have loved every one It is a pretty easy read that does not get too intense to scare you but enough to keep you in the story I really love how F.W Dixon has written this series The elements I specifically liked in this story is how it flows When I write I can not seem to get parts to flow nicely so that they sound good But this book has amazing flow and that helps keep it very interesting To conclude I really would recommend this book to aeroplane enthusiasts, Mystery junkies, or just your average Joe.
