I agree with this comment, and it probably explains why I like a lot of writers that others don't particularly care for, including Mickey Spillane. I discovered him near the height of his popularity (in the 1950s) and when I was just the right age (early teens). Even then, I knew better than to take the books entirely seriously. But now, looking back, I think Spillane was a better writer than several people who've commented.
