Galactic Patrol


Things I love and hate about The Galactic Patrol specifically and the Lensman series in general:

1. There is nonstop action in these books.
2. There is no doubt who the heroes and villains are.
3. The heroes have no doubt or moral ambiguity as the rightness of their cause.

1. The feminist in me cringes every time a female character is introduced.
2. These books are written of teen boys, and I am far from that.

I can't help that I enjoy these novels so much they are not well written, but I can't help it, they just appeal to me as someone who enjoys questionable literature.
