Thrusts of Justice by Matt Youngmark plugs deep into childhood nostalgia with this choose-your-own-adventure book written for adults. Set in a unique (and slightly tongue-in-cheek) superhero universe, this book gives a laid-off journalist from Cleveland the chance to step into the role of superhero just in time to save the world from certain doom. The journalist, of course, is “you.”

The book opens with you and your fellow unemployed journalists drowning your sorrows while discussing the possibil...more

“Thrusts of Justice” by Matt Youngmark is that rare breed of children’s literature successfully repurposed for adults; in this case, a choose-your-own-adventure novel that parodies traditional superhero conventions. I will specifically be reviewing the Kindle edition.
Casting you as a laid-off reporter (which makes the journalist major in me giggle), you’re presented with three different choices, and each will lead to becoming a different sort of superhero. Or supervillain. The novel says it’s...more
A choose-your-own adventure book for grown-ups, about superheros -- this Kindle book could easily have coasted on its high concept to suck people in, then served up a half-assed sloppy experience and called it a day. Instead, Thrusts of Justice was genuinely funny and clever, and the branching plot paths are really well thought out. I'm not a super-hero fan, and even so this was really fun to play with!

We get our set up in the first segment -- we are a disgruntled unemployed journalist, commiser...more

Choose your own adventure on kindle works great :)

Loved this book - you really should give it a try. I like the writing style. None of the pages are too short, which was my complaint with some of the original (TM) series when I was little.

I, of course, read books like this in a very methodical way - I wouldn't want to miss any of the sections the author has lovingly written for my consumption. This means I choose the first available option each time, wait until I die, and then back up and choose...more
I've gone through one of the paths to what I think is the best ending and it was an awesome ride. The humor is fresh and doesn't detract from the plot. Much like Zombocalypse Now, you feel like you are moving and acting in a real world with events going on around you, not that the entire world is waiting for you to act. This is a good thing, as it makes the many, many deaths you will experience less of a tragedy; since each one will shed a little more light on what is going on; something I'm stu...more
I loved it! What an amazing adventure this book takes you on. It's especially awesome because you can have so many stories in one book! I never read the choose your adventure books before, but my husband had and he said they were great. He is so right! I think I died about a dozen or so times before I finally saved the world, but it was totally worth it. So I'm going to go read some more because there are a lot more endings I haven't read yet! I received this book for free through a Goodreads Fi...more
Last year I got my nostalgia on hardcore and found this gem when I was knee-deep in the throes of the internets. Actually, I found the author's other book, Zombocalypse Now first, and that was decent enough to lead me here, which was cool. Zombocalypse was a decent book, but this one was a damned good thrill ride that I'm still sometimes thinking about over a year later.

A not-quite-as-serious-as-its-source-material tribute to spandex, high tech armor and glob suits (!?!), Thrusts of Justice has...more

Like his first choose your own romp, Thrusts of Justice is just plain fun to read. My only problem with it is I am impatient and cheated once or twice in endings. It's a blast, and is perfect for that "I need a quick break frin reality" moment!

Great book! Can't wait to read it again! Want to read more of my review? Click the link:
It turns out the choose-your-own-adventure format works pretty well on Kindle. It had hyperlinks and everything.
A choose your own adventure. Most choices will lead to your death... :)
Fun. Even reasonably funny.
A choose your own adventure book where you are given the option to become a super hero! I actually survived this one haha. It was a funny and entertaining read and. I am looking forward to the next one.
Entertaining light parody of superhero comic books, in choose-your-own-adventure form. I found the supervillain paths the most engaging.
