Loved this very funny story of the poetic and brave ace of the skies set during WWI.

I really enjoyed Tam o' the Scoots. It does require that you get into the Scottish dialect in the story. I normally don't like books that have a lot of this sort of dialect, but I found the rhythm in this story very easy to adapt to within a very few pages. In spite of the story taking place in the midst of the horror of World War I, I found Tam's "get 'er done" attitude so positive that it set the tone for the book. The best parts of the book were the descriptions of his aerial feats in his various flying machines. They were so well done that I felt like I was up there soaring along with Tam. Importantly, the book came to a satisfactory ending. I heartily recommend reading Edgar Wallace's Tam o' the Scoots.

I'm only rating this one two stars. I couldn't finish this book. Somehow I don't really feel like I missed much. I read a ways into it before I gave up, it's really not a novel, it is more a collection of vignettes. In the end they all seemed the same to me. I couldn't get into the character and the author's attempts to render the Scottish vernacular and brogue into legible prose left me struggling to make sense of the dialog.

I've read several other books by Edgar Wallace that I enjoyed, sadly, I couldn't finish this one. For free on Kindle.
