Now that's not to say the book is for everyone -- if you're really not a fan of the superhero/comic book genre, it might not be your cup of tea. But you know, now that I think about it, Red Raptor might be your thing regardless. If you like characters with complexity and depth, ones that have real (albeit mostly hero-related) problems that they face and overcome, then by all means crack the spine and dive right in.
I will say that, generally speaking, I'm not a fan of first person present tense storytelling. In fact, only two books come to mind where the perspective was handled so well that I hardly even noticed -- "Bright Lights, Big City" and this one. That, for me, puts this book in very exclusive company.
I have it on good authority that Part 2 is well under way, so if I were you, I'd get in on this series now. Not only because it's a great read, but also you'll be able to make fun of all the bandwagon jumpers once the series really takes off.
I had a lot of fun reading this. It made me smile a lot, it made me laugh, and it made me cringe for the main character whenever he got into a tough spot. Strong writing, great pacing, fun premise. Highly recommended!
