Justice for All begins ‘in media res’ but we can understand perfectly well what’s going on. The narrator’s voice feels fresh and very human; and the references to pop culture and celebrities add a nice touch of realism and even immediacy. Personally, I feel quite interested by the inclusion of scenes depicting ‘selfies’ and other recent trends, especially because that’s something that we won’t find in more ‘traditional’ novels.
Robin Howe, the protagonist, is a strong, resourceful, smart girl; and her nemesis, Madame Crimson (Lydia Schmidt), is one of those amazing villains that could just as easily belong to a comic (or another book series).
P.T. Dilloway does a really good job building characters and establishing and exploring relationships. For instance, Robin and her father felt a bit estranged after the mother’s death, but what happens when the father is gone? Robin also has a good relationship with Carol (a motherly figure of sorts) and the way Dilloway handles these scenes shows not only his capacity to understand dramatic moments but also his empathy and his concern over the loss of a dear one. Of course Dylan and Jessica are also characters that we can all root for.
I could keep talking about Justice for All but I fear that I might spoil a few plot twists, even if I try not to. So I’m just going to leave you with a piece of advice: don’t postpone things anymore, sit down and read Justice for All ASAP! Trust me, you’ll love it.
I really enjoyed the evolution of Robin from a “little girl” to a vigilantly. She goes through a transformation that made me wonder what she’s going to do next. Robin has no superpowers and is inexperienced, but she learns from her mistakes along the way. If anything, her super power could be that she’s brave enough to step in where the authorities are afraid to tread. It seemed her desire for justice made it possible to overcome her fears.
This story kept me turning the pages, and I couldn’t wait to get back to it. Never a dull moment in this one. Highly recommended!
