    The eighth Doc Savage tale or 18 in Bantam s wacky reprint order was originally published in October 1933, and it s a corker.Following directly on the events of The Lost Oasis, Doc and his gang find themselves swept up in a high seas mystery while returning home from Egypt The story is tight and moves along nicely, and the villain is truly worthy of Doc I love the way his name, Bruze, conveys his vio...

    The Sargasso Ogre is one of the early Doc Savage novels Like most of the Doc Savage pulps, it reads like a movie serial, with peril waiting constantly, lots of action, daring escapes, and a sense that anything can happen on the pages Lester Dent, under the name Kenneth Robeson, puts together a story that starts in Egypt and moves quickly to a battle on an ocean liner and ends in a strange Sargasso sea filled with lost ships, civilizations the live on the ships, and a group of criminals who see The Sargasso Ogre is one of the early Doc Savage novels Like most of the Doc Savage pulps, it reads like a movie serial, with peril waiting constantly, lots of action, daring escapes, and a sense that anything can happen on the pages Lester Dent, under the name Kenneth Robeson, puts together a story that starts in Egypt and moves quickly to a battle on an ocean liner and ends in a strange Sargasso sea filled with lost ships, civilizations the live on the ships, and a group of criminals who seem to have the upper hand on Doc Savage and his men as they stay one step ahead of them.Dent s writing is serviceable, not spending a lot of time describing things, and only ...

    Returning from their last adventure, upon leaving Egypt Doc Savage and his companions have their ocean liner hijacked by modern day pirates and taken to the Sargasso Sea Doc Savage finds himself working to protect both the passengers of his ocean liner and a shipful of beautiful castaways while dealing with well entrenched enemies led by the titular Sargasso Ogre This was one of the better entries in the Doc Savage series so far It felt a bitgrounded than some previous installments i Returning from their last adventure, upon leaving Egypt Doc Savage and his companions have their ocean liner hijacked by modern day pirates and taken to the Sargasso Sea Doc Savage finds himself working to protect both the passengers of his ocean liner and a shipful of beautiful castaways while dealing with well entrenched enemies led by the titular Sargasso Ogre This was one of the better entries in the Doc Savage series so far It felt a bitgrounded than some previous installments i.e., no giant poisonous bats this time , but it included exotic locations, an interesting antagonist, and plenty of action.Doc s companions didn t seem especially effective this time, so Doc is left to do most of the heavy lifting The women presented in the story were surprisingly well rendered for...

    I can t really recommend Doc Savage books I read some as a kid and wanted to see how they held up.The answer is not very well The treatment and even descriptions of women and non Americans or maybe non wealthy people are unpleasant The adventures themselves are fun and interesting and if you can skip over the parts that were acceptable 70 years ago but make you cringe now, then try one out You don t have to start with the first book, these are pretty standalone and tell you what you need I can t really recommend...

    This is truly a wild and weird adventure, beginning in Alexandria, Egypt and ending up in the Sargasso Sea, amid a virtual city of crippled ships Not only do we meet one of Doc s most powerful foes, but we also meet a civilization of women who live on one of the aforementioned crippled ships A v...

    Another adventure in the lives of Doc his men They take a ship homeward and the ship is taken by a gang of men who are never called pirates Doc meets a beautiful woman, whom he really doesn t notice because he never notices women as anything other than people As with many of the Doc Savage stories it ends as if the next chapter is missing Another adventure in the lives of Doc his men They take a ship homeward and the ship is taken by a gang of men...

    The Sargasso Ogre was Lester Dent s all time favourite Doc Savage story he wrote To me, that really set up a big expectation, especially since the 8 or so before it weren t all that good This one is better than alot of its predecessors Doc s still a terrible ass, though.
