Soon I Will Be Invincible

A Novel Soon I Will Be Invincible: A Novel by Austin Grossman
My review
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I think that by now it has been well established that I am a geek of major proportion. So it should come as no surprise that I am wholeheartedly recommending this book. It is a great summer beach read, escapism to its utmost. If you like Batman, or even The Incredibles, or any other kind of superhero-evil genius story, you have to read this book. Novelizing the comic book genre allows the author to more deeply delve into the backstories, origin stories, and the psyches of these characters, making it very enjoyable. My wife remarked to me when I gushed about the book, “You realize you are 12 years old inside, right?” Yeah, and your point is? Being 12 allows me to enjoy such a fantastic book with its fascinating tales of superheroes and villains for what it is: great entertainment.
Next up is Blaze by Richard Bachman aka Stephen King.
