Was doubtful when purchased,but was soon addicted. Dr. Impossible rules. Characters were well crafted. A sequel would rock!! Duel readers has a great feel. Enjoy this one
The book has an interesting premise, discussing the world of superheroes and villains from the perspective of the world's greatest super-villain. He's the smartest man in the world, but he's also trite and can't help falling into the super-villain stereotypes. The book seems to waver between an almost serious and a mocking tone as the perspective switches between the two main characters, who are linked. An entertaining listen, but the ending was a little too abrupt.
I think anyone even slightly interested in classic comic book hero versus villain stories will enjoy this book. It's funny without ever betraying the genre.
No. Maybe this just wasn't their usual material, but Boehmer's narration was almost laughable. He single-handedly ruined this audiobook for me. I couldn't get past his ridiculous tone and grandiose way of speaking. No subtlety here, whatsoever. Marlo's narration was simply passable.
First time I've ever had a book ruined by a narrator so this is a new experience for me. Maybe read this one in paperback.
I love this book. I love the narration of Dr. Impossible. At first I was annoyed with the Fatale parts, and still dislike the overacting, but I have to say that I think it is necessary in a way to bring out the Boehmer. This book rules, I've listened to it twice already and I still find myself rooting for Dr. Impossible.
A tremendously fun book! Superhero's are real in this world, and here is their story. Funny, inspiring, and sad.
Loved the writing, made me smile on every page.
Well written. Well read, very original story. Felt bad for Dr. Impossible though...the heroes needed a more significant beat down.
This book was just ok If I had to do it agian I would skip it.
