    Story
    (76)

    Opening with the young Clark Kent on a date, this novel takes an entirely fresh approach to the emergence of his superpowers and the start of his newspaper career, following him from rural 1930s Kansas across America to Hollywood in its golden age and then to New York City. He meets a worldly Lois Lane and conniving political boss Lex Luthor, and begins his battles against criminal masterminds, mad scientists, and super villains inspired by fascists.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This listening experience of this audiobook was the best part of reading this book. If it had not been for Scott Brick's charming performance of this novel, I would have put the novel down almost halfway through it.


    Which character – as performed by Scott Brick – was your favorite?

    Scott Brick did a fantastic job with the Midwestern voice given to most of the characters from Smallville, but Brick really shined with the one character I felt the author got right: Lex Luthor.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I was very disappointed in a novel called "It's Superman!" that barely had the titular character in the story. The supposedly major characters felt like underdeveloped supporting characters while De Haven spent much of his time developing the original "supporting" cast, who felt more like the main characters.


    Any additional comments?

    This is definitely a novel to avoid if you are hoping to read a novel about Superman. I would rather recommend "The Last Days of Krypton" by Kevin J. Anderson.
