Ken Holt #7 Iron Box and #8 Phantom Car
On page 77, a statement is made about it being odd to wear dark glasses in the winter. I have never thought it odd, since the sun is still bright in the winter. Some people might consider it strange to wear dark glasses on a cloudy day, but I wouldn't think anything of it, since some people's eyes are very sensitive to light.
Ken and Sandy spend 46 pages trying to get free from being captured. It then takes them an additional 20 pages to be rescued. I ended up skimming a lot of it, since I have read the book before. I found that I did not care this time. The scenes in Ken Holt books where Ken and Sandy are captives and their escapes are described in painstaking detail are my least favorite parts of the books.
While I overall enjoyed this book, the last half of the book was not that interesting to me.
I greatly enjoyed this story. It's interesting how some books don't appeal to me while others do. The book takes place entirely in and near Brentwood, and that is part of the appeal. I found this book to be thoroughly engaging from start to finish.
