This is now the 19th Tom Swift book I’ve read from the original series and man has it gotten stale. Tom Swift and His Big Tunnel was published in 1916, in the midst of World War I. It’s interesting that the book talks about forces overseas mobilizing despite the fact that the war had started in 1914. United States wouldn’t join the war until 1917 and by 1918 it was over. Tom Swift has spent a lot of time building weapons and although his work in this book is on explosives his goal is excavation not destruction. Tom has been hired to use the explosives he developed in Tom Swift and His Giant Cannon in order to blast away some particularly stubborn rocks to complete a tunnel.

Fiddling around with the ingredients for an explosive doesn’t exactly make for the most riveting story so, of course, we have a rival group trying to sabotage Tom’s efforts. The problem is that this is exactly the same plot of every single Tom Swift story. It’s like Tom is stuck in a continuous loop. One break from the loop might be the evolution of the relationship between Tom and Mary Nester but that never goes anywhere. After 19 books their relationship has barely moved. We are constantly reminded that Tom Swift Sr. and Eradicate Sampson are getting older but by and large nothing ever seems to progress.

There were a couple of subplots including a scientist searching for a lost city but there is little to distinguish this book from the other 18. I was hoping when the publishing rate dropped significantly after book 15 that we’d see an increase in quality but that really hasn’t occurred. If anything, the stories have become even less creative. I’m intent on getting through these books but it’s getting tough.

AH! Coincidence! Where would Tom and his pals be without it? Without giving away too much, what are the odds that one would find exactly what one was looking for while randomly blowing a tunnel through a mountain? In any case, after the usual initial plundering (supposedly for a museum) an attepmt is made to try and preserve a great archeological find; a rarity in the days this story takes place.
Either ay, another thorouhgly good read...

Young inventor Tom Swift Jr. and his best friend, Bud Barclay, both eighteen years old, are on Tom’s Flying Lab Sky Queen when they witness the explosion of a supply rocket headed for an American outpost on the asteroid Nestria. They eventually learn that a group of space pirates, headed by the Black Cobra, has surrounded the asteroid with an antimatter shield in an attempt to conquer it. The Cobra’s men also make several attempts on Tom’s life. The two boys, Tom’s father Tom Swift Sr., Tom’s sister and Bud’s girlfriend Sandra, Sandra’s friend and Tom’s girlfriend Phyllis Newton, various Swift Enterprises employees, and other officials are all working to remedy the situation. How long will the crew on Nestria be able to survive without supplies? Do the pirates succeed in taking the asteroid? And can they make good their threats on Tom’s life?

At the very first homeschool convention which I ever attended, one of the workshop speakers highly recommended the original Tom Swift books. Tom Swift and The Asteroid Pirates is identified as Book 21 of 33 in “The New Tom Swift Jr. Adventures.” The original Tom Swift books, published by the Edward Stratemeyer Syndicate and attributed to the pseudonym of Victor Appleton but written mostly by Howard R. Garis of “Uncle Wiggly” fame, ran from 1910 to 1941 with a total of forty titles. The Tom Swift, Jr. books, attributed to Victor Appleton II, are an extension of the original series. Tom Sr. has grown up, married his childhood sweetheart, has had two children, and directs the gargantuan Swift Enterprises. His perpetually eighteen-year-old son is now the second generation inventor. The Tom Swift Jr. series ran from 1954 to 1971, for a total of 33 titles. Most of the stories were outlined and plotted by Stratemeyer’s daughter, Harriet Stratemeyer Adams, and the texts were written by various writers.

I have never read any of the original series. The Asteroid Pirates has a few colloquial euphemisms (tarnation, consarned, dad-ratted), but these books are basically harmless and would have the same kind of appeal as other Stratemeyer series, like the Hardy Boys, Nancy Drew, the Bobbsey Twins, etc. Tom Swift would be especially interesting to youngsters who enjoy children’s science fiction adventure novels that emphasize physics, invention, and technology. The second set begins with Tom Swift and His Flying Lab, and The Asteroid Pirates is followed by Tom Swift and His Repelatron Skyway. There have been three subsequent series, in which the main character is also “Tom Swift, Jr.” The third series of 11 volumes was begun in 1981, lasted until 1984, and differs from the first two in that the setting is primarily outer space. The rights to the Tom Swift character, along with the Stratemeyer Syndicate, were sold in 1984 to publishers Simon and Schuster which produced two other Tom Swift series. The 13 volumes of the fourth, published from 1991 to 1993, feature Tom Swift (again a “Jr.”) and are set mostly on Earth with occasional voyages to the moon. The Tom Swift, Young Inventor series, with Tom as the son of Tom Swift and Mary Nestor, the names of characters of the original Tom Swift series, was begun in 2006 and has some half-dozen books published as recently as 2007, for a total of around 103 volumes for all the series.

Since the birth of my nephew I've been reviewing books which are supposed to appeal to boys. (By the time he's old enough to need them, I hope to have some good recommendations and ideas for gift giving.)

This is my first Tom Swift book but I doubt it will be my last. The technical jargon can be a bit thick, but the chapters are relatively short and each one ends with an exciting cliffhanger. I could easily see a child being hooked if you read them a chapter a day.

There is some outdated material here. The Asian bad guys are referred to as "Oriental." If that's not exactly incorrect, neither is it polite in today's society. Also the girls of the story, while intelligent and spoken of respectfully, do not get to participate in Tom and Bud's adventures.

Despite that, I would still feel comfortable reading or recommending this book to my nephew. We may need to talk briefly about gender equality and racism, but that's something we should be doing regardless of the books we read.
