  • Bob Moore: No Hero on Jan. 09, 2011

    This was quite an enjoyable read. When you cross a gritty gumshoe with spandex superheros, their two worlds collide in spectacular fashion. What I liked: Bob Moore is the classic protagonist, complete with fatal flaws and more than a little character. The story worked out well, and I was entertained up to the very end. I love it when stories keep me guessing, and this one did a fantastic job! Excellent formatting, and I loved the cover art. Shortcomings: I wished there was more development in the minor characters, but it doesn't detract from the plot too much. The main character still exhibits plenty of Private Investigator stereotypes, but again, with this type of story, it's not that much of a detraction. I can't really say anything bad about it, as I enjoyed it, though the writing style was a bit choppier than I would have liked. Overall, recommended! I'd like to see more of these adventures.

    An interesting take on taking an old story and adapting it to modern small businesses. The good: I like the concept, and it's easy to comprehend the writer's points. It exposes a lot of things small business owners might not be aware of. The bad: The formatting is horrible. It was obviously converted over from a print edition, and the styles were mangled brutally. The advice is targeted specifically towards small retailers, and towards the end I felt the analogy was wearing thin. If you're interested in small retail, it's got a few good ideas, so worth a quick read.

    Josh Corwood, reporter for the local Superhero newspaper, gets to see what the city’s superhero society is like from the inside. He has dedicated his life to studying superheroes, but in a startling discovery, he suddenly finds himself involved with the very people he idolizes. Things get crazy when Josh uncovers what could possibly bring down the entire city’s superhero infrastructure! This was a definitely fun read. We get lots of colorful characters, superhero battles, secret identities, and quite a bit of tongue-in-cheek as Josh penetrates the Superhero world. I think the author did a good job of trying not to hit too many stereotypes, but still, it’s a superhero novel, you’re going to get some of that otherwise you’d be disappointed. The characters are funny, but realistic in that they have struggles, emotional issues, and flaws as well. The author’s writing style is very loose and conversational, which works well for the comedy dialogue. I had some good laughs, and really enjoyed it overall. The version I reviewed here from Smashwords is the revised edition, with bonus material, including more than one extra short story. If you’ve read Other People’s Heroes before, the new version is definitely worth a read with the added scenes and extra tidbits. I found myself getting attached to the characters, and that’s a good thing. I give this book a hearty thumbs-up, and if you’re a fan of superhero comedy at all (if not, you should be) then snap up a copy and get busy. It’s definitely a fun way to spend a few evenings reading. Highly recommended.
