Drew Hayes ↠ 8 SummaryI m terrible at talking about what I like about a book What works for me depends a lot on what I m in the mood to be reading I am usually much clear about what I don t like so I want to preface this review with two statements1 Yes there are still plenty of proofreading rrors throughout

G book but a bit too simplistic for my tastes It tries very hard to be mature both with its plot and character s but never really manges to do that The talk and behaviour of most of the cast far too often reads like a 1415 year old imagines cool adults to behave and the same can be said of the general world building and plotting Big surprises ngrossing characters Originally reviewed in 2016 but I had to correct a typoWhen I first began this book I found it fairly interesting and thought okay going to be a 4 But as I continued on the book like some pieces of music just got better and betterThis is unapologetically a light brain candyish book No doubt about that make no mistake This is not something along the lines of Spinoza That said sometimes a book about an unabashedly light subject comes together on the uality of the story telling and transcends itself a bit I m moving this up to 5 starsI got the audio version of this book thinking I d listen to it as I did some other projects I hadhave going Never once however did I have to go back and relisten to a passage It held my interest right through Alsothe second is scheduled to be released in audio next month and *I marked it on my calendar If it doesn t This is less Pup Fiction and written from those wonderful fantasies *marked it on my calendar If it doesn t This is less Pup Fiction and written from those wonderful fantasies day dreams that a young reader of comic books might have had in the silver age of comics 1970s ish when Spiderman and the X Men were on the rise When I was nine years old I benefited from a friend who had a wonderful imagination and was able to make up stories where he inserted us into the mix of superheroes Most of his were borrowed from his xtensive comic book collection Stories could last for hours Too bad he s an optometrist today and not a writer This book sort of took me back there In many ways I am still like that 9 year old kid with a wild imagination and the ability to put words and pictures with that wonderful uestion What if we It s a good read The characters are rich There are shades of the great grand genre pulp fiction but also shades of the 1980 s prime time soaps There is a rich plot that if there is a fault takes a long time to show itself and links this book to the next one It s long which is a plus for me when it s good and I liked the characters There is action but there is a lot of action less action By that I mean the behind the scenes plots and twists Character secrets and stories and some relationship drama It s kind of a Soap Opera for Superheroes with lots of
or an story with Superheroes and lots of drama the good kind I m giving it 5 stars but it s not perfect It gets five stars for smooth writing a well thought out plot an honest commitment to the Superhero theme and it s pulp fiction roots and interesting characters The down side of this isSometimes a little too much drama I did want to slap Vince and Nick a few times And Alicethough thankfully that was wonderfully managed There were also too many pretty people Okay I get it superheroes right Pulp Fiction right Whadya xpect Maybe a Swamp Thing Goes to College guy I don t know or maybe normal Generally this is tolerable given the genre Girly girls that could hammer the be Jesus out of you Right out of the comic books and possibly one of the most stigmatized problems with the genre Men can wear armor and Suit up Women wear skin tight unitards They have a partyWhat will I wear GaspCALL ALICE NOW Generally this was cute and there were plenty of female characters who could put a whopping smackdown on your M a curriculum designed to develop student with superhuman capabilities commonly known as Supers into official Heroes Five of this year’s freshmen are xtra special They have a secret aside from their abilities one that they must guard from ven their classmates Because for very one person in the world with abilities they can control there are three who lack such skill Theseaction or an
