    "Tom finds a use for his glider. Tom takes to the a"
    What made the experience of listening to Tom Swift and His Air Glider the most enjoyable?

    I liked the narrator, he did a decent job of capturing Tom and the period.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Sure Toms great, Ned Newton's a stand up guy. But Mary Nestor is my absolute favorite. She's bright, beautiful and steadfast.


    Which character – as performed by John Michaels – was your favorite?

    Hemdid justice to Tom. Not easy since his attitudes come from a different time and place.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Actually this wasn't one I felt compelled to listen all in one go. I have enjoyed pretty much all of the first Tom Swift series . This is not my favorite amoung them. It just misses some of the high notes and adventures of many of the other titles.


    Any additional comments?

    These are fun books with a nice group of characters. I think for the best enjoyment you should dtart at the beginning of the series as it gives you a great starting point of the times and characters . One thing to near in mind is not to overthink the books enjoy the stories and the times they reflect. Primarily a series aimed at young boys but very enjoyable none the less.
