Stole my soul

Catwoman soulstealer

What a refreshing story for catwoman! I really found myself invested in this story and found it really original and entertaining. I would recommend this story to any and all book lovers, DC fans, and just open minded people that are not quick to judge negatively now or days with what you see with most common reviewers.

I found the story to be really good and a great end game that made it all worth listening to. Makes me wish why there are not more books out there for catwoman, I mean not in comic form.

MEH.

Okay. I can look past that is, in a different DC universe and things are really different. I found at times that the only reason I was still listing was because the voice talent really was good. The story on the other hand 75% okay and 25% pure trash. This book was more written for a person that thinks even a billionaire black guy is oppressed by society, and a female is always a sex symbol and has to fight off this stereotype. The story itself fell really flat, I found myself wondering how batwing could do anything with such a crippling problem , and all he did all book long was get his butt kicked ( he did not win 1 fight). Some will love it but I think more for the stellar vocal performance than the story itself.

beautifully read, complex, endearing story

I love the complexity of this catwoman, she has real heart and a truly beautiful motive for her crimes.
it made a rather shallow character (depending on which depiction) a much more fleshed out storyline that made her relatable and made you cheer her own...she is definitely an anti-hero in this version and a bonified bad ass with a heart of gold.

what were they thinking

Written by an author who seems to hate men, especially white men. Hates police officers, especially white Male police officers.

The male bashing goes on for pages and pages. Her disgust with the police force drips from her narrative not even the characters point of view.

The Batwing character is not well researched. I'm not even talking about the source material, because that is way too much to discuss! The Marine with PTSD was not well researched and was more of a caricature of combat veterans.

Would have been a great stand alone story, didn't have much linking the selina character to Catwoman.

Written like a bad Tumblr fan-fiction

While occasionally fun and exciting, Catwoman: Soulstealer feels more like a Tumblr fan-fiction rather than an honest portrayal of the IP it bases itself on. The characters feel more like props to service a plot that takes way too long to surface.

If you want to read a book with kickass female characters, topics of social justice, and characters based off the rich pantheon of the DC Universe, read Wonder Woman: Warbringer instead.

Plotless, Political, and Disappointing

I LOVE SJM, but this was a huge let down for me.
What irked me most of all (other than the lack of plot except for the first and last hours and exhausting political agenda) was the fact that Luke was an idiot with terrible detective skills and he has no business working with Bruce Wayne. Not to mention, Bruce is depicted as a pretty big jerk himself.
I don't want to spoil anything, but there was a specific theme that was brought up several times, while drawing attention to it and Luke paid no mind to it.
Additionally, the cover bothers me because it doesn't accurately represent anything about how catwoman is described in the book, but now I'm just nitpicking.
If you read DC comics, I would recommend the Wonder Woman book in this series first (it is great) and the Batman one second. You will likely be disappointed by this installment.

great book and great voice over! I enjoyed it so m

i enjoyed it so much I didnt want to finish it honestly. The voice over was great and the storyline was original while still being true to the personalities of the comic characters.

Awesome story and performance

As a huge Catwoman fan, I love this story. Yes, some liberties were taken with the character but they are forgivable because the story itself is so compelling.

Julia Whelan’s performance was amazing. This is one of two books I’ve heard her read and hope to listen to many more.

Cativating!

I wasn't sure I would be so enthralled by this tale except that I love Sarah J Maas. She did not disappoint. I have always enjoyed the Batman movies, but had never read any books. I loved the delicately woven story of relationships between each of the characters.
