Top Customer Reviews
When I learned about this book, with its story about a superhero stepping forward on September 11 and then fighting terrorism while the press fights his anonymity, my expectations shot through the roof. As far as a story building itself on action sequences and interesting looks at major figures, this book didn't let me down at all.
A word of caution: this book has a no-holds-barred attitude about the situations our hero stands against. There's a witty segment where they discuss how our world already has plenty of supervillians. Monstrous men who lack superpowers but are capable of evil I would ordinarily call 'unspeakable'... except this book speaks unflinchingly about it. Thankfully, these awful situations build up to satisfying resolutions. And there's humor too, such as the surprising situation blogger Michelle Malkin, author of Culture of Corruption: Obama and His Team of Tax Cheats, Crooks, and Cronies finds herself in.
The discussion of the military takes a few creative liberties but manages to stay believable. The story of life in Iraq, and the pressures journalists face, is similarly convincing and actually expands the reader's worldly perspective.
My favorite parts of this book deal with the reality of Muslim and Arab heroics. The bravest character in the book isn't the superhero, but rather is a Muslim woman evolving from respect to fear of Saddam Hussein.Read more ›
