Short, shorter on content, doomed from the start

Nothing much here for deadpool fans. If you know anything about the character, you'll likely get nothing out of this other than the minor thrill of just listening to someone talk about deadpool.

Grievously short already, this audio is composed only a fraction by a (shallow) study of the character; great length is wasted to simply list the comic titles he appears in as well as a recommended shortlist. Further diluting the density of time spent discussing the titular character, and of only cursory interest and unsurprising facts, is an overwrought biography of each of DP's two creators...and a list of their other works.

Achieving only the satisfaction of certain trivial curiosity, this audio delivers only 10 or 15 minutes of actual deadpool content, of which I can't imagine that anyone searching for or purchasing this audio didn't already know. As this title itself points out, 'pool has "a cult following," thus, in hindsight, "Deadpool 101" seems a doomed enterprise from the start. An impulse purchase I already regret, even at ~$2.75.

Not bad

Wish it had more insight into deadpool since there are not any other books I could find on here to listen to about him

Barely even 101

I know this is a 101 book, so I wasn't expecting a great amount of detail from it. That being said, I learned nothing new beyond what I had learned from watching the first Deadpool movie and spending about 5 minutes googling information on him. I'm glad I didn't pay anything for this audiobook, because I wasn't even worth the 17 minutes I spent listening to it. Probably the only way someone is learning anything from this is if they have never heard of Deadpool before.
As for the narrator, he reminded me of the teacher from Ferris Bueller. He was extremely monotone. A character like Deadpool definitely deserves a narrator who is more animated. With the feeling I got from the narrator, I wouldn't have know he was alive if he wasn't speaking (and even that is questionable given some of the AI text readers I have heard.

Meh

I love Deadpool, but the narrator's droning voice takes away from the story. He sounds so bored.
