Short Book Reviews

Soon I Will Be Invincible by Austin Grossman - This very handsomely packaged super-hero/super-villain novel is something of a mixed bag. I greatly enjoyed the super-villain Dr. Impossible's glib one-liners and the culling of classic super-hero concepts and catch phrases. However, the forward momentum of the plot is hampered by distracting, constant school-days flashback vignettes of the popular kids vs the geeks. This one lands somewhere between Good Fun and It's OK.
