    Story
    "Has potential, doesn't really live up to it"

    I would like to give this a 2.5 star review because I think it has potential. But it needs a good story editor and it needs to figure out what it is trying to do. Conceptually the idea is good. What if the world biggest comic book fan was given super powers. Lots of good science fiction potential. I am not a huge fan of making the guy an idiot, but I can deal with that. There are some issues with story telling because a lot of the story feels like filler and some of the filler stories introduce problems into the plot (like how are there other superheros).

    The biggest problem is probably not a problem for everyone. But as a Christian, I am not a fan of Christian fiction that knock you over the head with salvation and then all the problems go away. I don't think that is how the real world works. This story is a superhero story and then makes a hard right turn into a divorce story of the superhero because he is a dufus that hasn't actually paid any attention to his wife and family and refuses to talk about the fact that he is now a superhero. Of course she is going to leave him. And the anti-marriage divorce lawyer also just minimize the potential of real problems instead of making the story better.

    I like the potential. I picked up the second book in the series and I think I will read it eventually. But it was not a great book.

    My full review is on my blog.

    Story
    "Religious propaganda in a super hero shell."
    What about Scot Wilcox’s performance did you like?

    Scot Wilcox really tried to make this entertaining. He changed his voice for each character, and really went over the top with Powerhouse.


    Was Tales of the Dim Knight worth the listening time?

    I'm torn about this. This could have a been a fun yet stereotypical super hero story. It didn't take itself too serious and had many funny moments. What I didn't like was how they put all the religious propaganda into it. The book is broken into chapters with the superhero vs some bad guy, and about half of them end up involve religion, going to church, or something else along those lines. No where in the publisher's summary or the author's website does it mention anything about religion and how large a part it plays in this book.

    Please don't take this to mean I'm anti-religion as I consider myself a religious person. But I'm not a fan of it being pushed on me in a book like this.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are looking for a super hero tale with many low IQ characters and religious notes, this could be perfect for you.
