Publisher's Summary

Dr. Anarchy is a man with a simple dream: to conquer and rule the entire world. While he has yet to achieve his goal, he has managed to become absolute lord and master of one small corner of it. This is the story of what one man was able to achieve though hard work, dedication, careful planning, unhealthy obsession, giant robots, disintegrators, remote controlled grolem dolls, a horde of disposable henchmen, killbots, an annoying cyborg ninja, and 36 rules every supervillain should follow!

So, there's this girl...

This story grows as Nelson tells it.
I honestly considered turning the book off in the first 30 minutes, it seemed so predictable.

Dr Anarchy is presented as the Saturday morning evil villain, he is way to full of his own self importance and poorly thought out plans. Then there's the girl, who is a Ninja and she comes off as the valley girl who is just using the nerd. The super heroes are initially too shiny with pure goodness, because they are heroes.

The first 30 minutes was needed, to lay the ground work. I reminded me of the Disney "Kim Possible" story line, bubble gum of the imagination. But then Nelson begins to enlighten us to what makes each of the characters and Dr Anarchy's Rules.

There's a giant robot story in here, it came off as hilarious to me; initially falling into the - Just because you can build it, what are you going to do with it and then going the the other extreme, If you got it, be sure to use it.

I liked how the characters were fleshed out, becoming more than what I thought they would. Oh, and the RULES are a bonus, though not all are completely explained. I am hoping that the next installment will provide the background on aliens and the final Ninja throw down.

Overall, I am glad I pushed on and now have another author to follow...

Fun read

Its really good to see Chereta publishing more books on audible. I am desperately awaiting his next Waldo book and this was a charming detour that reminds me why I enjoy his work so much. This is a fun little romp that is similar to other stories like the dark lord's handbook or super sales on super heros but with its own signature style and charm that makes you feel good.

Better and better every time

Getting kinda ridiculous how many times I have listened to this story, maybe 10? Every time I find a new reason to listen again. It is easy to get into, hilarious and well worth your time. Buy this book, Nelson deserves your money. - I am not a bot, promise.

Twisted sense of humor

I don't know of many books with the same level of warped humor. But at the same time there is a great deal of thought put behind the plot line and the characters. The overall was fun and entertaining. I particularly enjoyed the guessing game of who's who when it comes to the heroes.

I needed that

One of the best books I’ve list to. This is the kind of super villain you’d want to be. DO NOT pass up this book. Should be a trilogy

I can't describe how much I want there to be more of this. The narration was absolutely perfect for the title.

Do all the superhero/villain genres with a twist read each other books?

If you have never read one of these this is ok. If you have, there are others better. Characters were one dimensional, predictable, and boring. And apparently being a ninja was the best thing ever. Bad guys smart, good guys dumb. Blah blah blah.

Great little story

A great little story that is well acted and we'll paced. Would love to hear a little more in this universe but a little still goes a long way.
