Poor portrayal of Doc Savage.

This story had so many errors about Doc that it was like hearing a story about a completely different character. The narration was okay, but as a Doc Savage fan of over 45 years, the story was a disappointment.

Doc Savage. "Flight Into Fear"

I was extremely disappointed with this story as the main character, was not recognizable as most of the characters idiosyncrasies have been dropped. Things like Doc never portrays emotions, the sound he made(trilling) when he is thinking or had made a discovery. Another thing was bringing him into modern age, fighting Russians, give me a break.That is not the Doc Savage that we grew up with and know and love.

Not the Doc Savage I grew up with.

This story butchered the character of Doc Savage. It’s written as though Mickey Spillane was the author. Not at all what I expected.

Meh.

Long, uninteresting, and a misleading title. Also an anticlimactic ending. Characters were boring, story was uninteresting, and Doc Savage seems to be more of a wuss in this. But I haven't read enough of Doc Savage to know better. I'm willing to forget this story if I find better examples though.

Flight info Fear

Never known or read any of Doc Savage books where his character was totally different from what I'm used to. I had an interesting time with this story. Enjoyed this unusual story.
