Fair to good read/Expected More & Better

I gave it this rating for the reason stated. I read MS's first novel and liked it a lot more.

While I found most of the book interesting, holding my attention there were sections that seem to drag. I know in part it may have been trying to bring the uneducated up to speed on some current events, but it was not the best book I had read.

I understand the superhero world saver character can do so many different things so well but sometimes a sense of reality might set in unless he was trying to re-create a comic book hero.

In saying all this, I would still recommend this book to the readers w

So disappointed in one of my favorite talk show hosts, Michael Savage. He's such a great story teller on the air, and this was not great story telling. And the mistakes were so distracting. Simple mistakes a high school English student would know to correct in a paper. It was just a tedious read. Wish I hadn't bought it and would have waited for it to appear in my library.

Great story, great characters, but once the full plot was revealed I saw the ending coming. Dr. Savage is a great writer nonetheless.
