Dr. Nikola review É 103 Est adventures the vintage Victorian thrillers A Bid for Fortune 1895 and Dr Nikola 1896 in one breathless pacy nightmarish volum. This volume contains A Bid For Fortune which I reviewed a few weeks back and Dr Nikola which I am tackling hereIn my last review of a Dr Nikola story I expressed disappointment that Dr Nikola was not the central figure of the piece with that role taken by a bog standard hero This volume is closer to what I wanted with the main narrator working in tandem with Nikola all the way through However this narrator is never corrupted by this evil doctor s presence and remains a decent man throughout As a conseuence Nikola s actions come across as not evil those of an unscrupulous adventurer Which is not uite what I anticipatedStill it s good fun even if the racial politics are very much of their time and an exciting read

Dr. Nikola review É 103 Elegant ruthless hypnotic enter Dr Nikola and his black cat Apollyon He was the world's first master villain a Victorian forerunn. This is my first Guy Boothby an author I had never heard of before finding this in a pound shop for you guessed it a pound and being nothing if not a spotter of bargains picked it upThis volume actually contains the first 2 Dr Nikola books and while the 1st A Bid For Fortune is a fun enough little romp which makes zero sense if you think about it for than a minute and is no friend to the hater of coincidence it is the 2nd Dr Nikola that forms the real meat of the piece Which is not to say I hasten to add that it contains any fewer incidences of appalling coincidence they re just moderately better disguised He d had an extra year or so to practise his art by that time after allThe only caveat I d offer to a wholehearted thumbs up to these books as uncomplicated fun is that they were written in the late 1800 s with all that that entails in terms of social attitudes So if you re going to struggle with a woman in her 20 s being unable to marry the man she loves unless her brother in law by virtue of being her closest male relative gives his blessing or with a central protagonist who is while presented as a suare jawed everyman hero someone who today would be villified as an apalling racist then this may not be for youSeriously the things he says about the Chinese

Dr. Nikola review É 103 Er of Dr Fu Manchu and the mad cat stroking evil genius Blofeld in the James Bond books and filmsHere you will find his two great. Very much books of their time full of the mysteries of the Orient evil Chinamen etc Much will appear objectionable to 21st century sensibilities but the books must be read taking account of when they were written The author appears never to have been to China or to know much about local customs In the second book he has the protagonists travelling on foot and by pony from Peking sic to Thibet sic in little over a week Many Buddhist monks are portrayed as dastardly cut throats There is very little of the supernatural and difficulties encountered are overcome very easily Think very watered down Indiana Jones About the character of the eponymous Dr Nikola I was ambivalent Is he intended to be a goodie or baddie I m not sure that the author had really made up his mind Read the books as period pieces and be amused by much of the uaintness and how the world has changed since they were written
