5.0 out of 5 stars Very enjoyable novel May 9, 2012
By Rich M.
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
"Questionable Heroes" is an excellent novel in a somewhat hard-to-write-for genre, superheroes and supervillains. Mr. Hammes' book, however, reads like a good comic book and plays out like a good role-playing game sessions. Not everybody is exactly what they seem, and there are some interesting takes on classic comic book conventions. Mr. Hammes provides some excellent characterization for characters on both sides of the law.

I would definitely recommend this novel to any comic book/super-hero fiction fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars An easy five stars April 13, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love good "supers" literature. There is too little out there that truly can engross the mind. This was great. I don't think many people grasp how much skill it takes to have true ensemble stories with such characters, and this author did it very very well. I don't know if I saw any typos, not that I let such a thing get in the way if the writing is otherwise good. I'll be looking for more of this genre from Mr. Hammes, hopefully. May there be many future "Great American Superhero Novel" -types books out there.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok...but could be better June 28, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It was a fun yet exasperated book. Each chapter had so many different point of view from a different character that it was just plain frustrating. Especially if you identified with a character and expect to see a storyline and progression develop around him or her, then new chapter new character.
The only saving grace is that so many individual plot lines got sorta rolled into one at the very end.
