    After graduating from Le Cordon Bleu in Paris, writer Kathleen Flinn returned with no idea what to do next, until one day at a supermarket she watched a woman loading her cart with ultraprocessed foods. Flinn's "chefternal" instinct kicked in: she persuaded the stranger to reload with fresh foods, offering her simple recipes for healthy, easy meals.

    Kathleen Flinn has inspired me to learn how to cook properly. No more can and box meals for me. She makes learning to cook from scratch fun and easy. The narrator Marguerite Gavin lends a fantastic voice for the reading. You can easily follow the different characters just by the change in her reading. Great job.

    Doctor Impossible, evil genius and diabolical scientist, has tried to take over the world in every way imaginable, but this time is going to be different. He'll have to contend with Fatale, however, a rookie superhero on her first day with the Champions, the world's most famous superteam. She's a patchwork woman of skin and chrome, a gleaming technological marvel built for the next generation of warfare.

    "Best Supervillan/Superhero Novel Ever"
    Overall

    I grew up as a child reading comic books in the 60's and 70's as my favorite past time. A local store owner would tear off the front cover and sell us all the comic books we wanted for 5 cents. I would spend all day collecting beer bottles from trash cans and sell them for my comic book reading habit. Oh the wonderful memories of Spiderman, Batman, Superman, and my favorite Dr. Fate. Watching them fight evil and living mixed up and confusing lives just like mine. This novel brings back some wonderful memories as they describe so many different superheros and supervillians. I must confess I am a supervillian fan and enjoy Paul Boehmer's rendition of Doctor Impossible. His voice is fantastic and he is very dramatic and make you feel he is really his character. I'm actually going to search and see what other books he has narrated on Audible to hear more of him. I hope we get more novels from Austin Grossman. This is one of the best novels I have read. Collen Marlo was also excellent in her narration, but Paul brings down the house as they say. You will not be bored listening to this wonderful novel of Supervillians and Superheros.
