Arthur Lovelass is an aspiring super villain but in a world where acts of villainy and heroics are heavily regulated and even scheduled being a villain means ensuring the success of a hero. After his latest proposal is rejected for being infallible and he's denied his villain license once again, Arthur decides to strike back through a petty act of vandalism only to witness the first maneuver in a deadly conspiracy.

Project Northwoods is an amusing, dramatic story with memorable characters and fan

Who doesn’t love Superheros? Project Northwoods is a great book about superheros and villains. But the lines get a little blurred. In the 60′s both sides came together to fight a Nazi super-soldier. Unfortunately, the villains were not given their due credit and this causes a rift between the fragile balance between the two. It will definitely make you rethink exactly what defines “good” and what defines “evil”. The good guys don’t always do the right things and the bad guys don’t always do the ...more

Project Northwoods sets up an incredibly interesting and entertaining universe in which superheroes and villains are the norm. Despite that, the basis of the central conflict wouldn't be out of place in a realistic novel, which is a big plus in my eyes.

The first chapter was a little rough to get through because you're thrown directly into an action sequence as an introduction to the world, but when we meet Arthur and his friends, everything gets easier to follow. Everything that's meant to be e

I honestly wasn't sure just what to expect when started Project Northwoods, but the description intrigued me. Heroism and villainy as 9-to-5 jobs? A world where both roles are filled in numbers so great they have their own political parties (not to mention news networks)? Plus, okay, I'm a sucker for anything with "Project ______." What I found upon reading was that Jonathan Charles Bruce had created a novel different from anything I'd ever read before.

The book starts out in 1965 with a bang (nu

This book surprised me in many ways, not all of them good.

At it's core, you have a premise of good superheros and bad superheros battling with each other in a phony, scripted environment until something happens to force them back into their old ways of truly looking to harm one another.

With a very comic book like base, you would expect something light, however, the material here is anything but. It is a somewhat dense read and read like it was 200 pages longer than what was listed.

This isn't to

Growing up on Superman, Batman, the Fantastic Four, and other heroes of the world, I was very interested to read about a world where both superheroes and villains are the norm, rather than the exception. Ever since a major battle took place several decades ago, there has been an alliance of sorts between the villains and heroes--to the point where everyone is classified as hero, villain, or neutral. And there are strict rules that must be followed.

The main thrust of the story centers around Arth

I read this book several months ago and I’m about to start it again. It’s one of those stories that you think about often and consider the characters and replay the epic battles in your mind and keep going back to once a year to relive it all again. The plot feels like a classic superhero tale, yet unpredictable with its own fun twists, which for a story of this type is impressive. It builds to epic proportions, flirts with melodrama—because, superheroes—and culminates in some spectacular ...more

It was really super to read this kind of books sometimes. I really like to get into their hero's world. Usually I don't read this kind of book.. I watch it or I usually read comic or manga's like this book. But sometimes making different things is good. I don't want to give readers spoiler but you'll definately love the book if you're really into reading fight scenes :)

Jonathan Bruce began writing what amounted to terrible Star Trek: The Next Generation fan fiction when he was four. Although the original manuscripts are lost (or perhaps destroyed), we can rest assured that his prose has improved significantly since then. After high school, he began writing and directing plays which gradually improved depending on whom you ask. He discovered his love of a good ...more
