Oliver Optic is not today's kind of author. His story's not only have morals, but they have morals repeated on practically every page and by practically every character. And the good characters are very good, and the bad characters... well, even the bad characters aren't that bad. They have more honor in their little finger than the average character in, say, `Twilight' or `Ella Enchanted'.
Not all of the morals are ones that moderns might agree with, either. Obedience versus having fun?
For those who can handle the antediluvian style, however, they might find in Oliver Optic something they can really enjoy: a call to duty, to valor, to friendship, to loyalty, to perseverance, hard work.
`Now and Never' stresses the `hard work' part of the equation, while not ignoring the others. Our hero is a plucky thirteen year old boy, son of a widow (of course), a poor widow (of course), with a heartless banker threatening to foreclose on her house... well... you get the picture.
But unlike the melodrama it sounds like, Now or Never is light, cheerful, and full of `moral drama'.
