Brad Meltzer has the idea of a quick and fun read down pat. If you like suspense thrillers, thrown in with a religious backdrop, and oh not to mention the Superman comic book, then you will fly (no pun intended) through this and enjoy every moment of it. Highly recommend if you like a lighter version of The DaVinci Code -- very entertaining and if you are traveling for work or pleasure, this is a fun book to while away the time.
Excellent book, not like the typical Meltzer book, not full of the legal and corporate drama, more like Julia Navaro. A good gripping historical religious story line with a comic book twist, certainly an original story. Definitely worth waiting on the wish list.
I thought this was one of the best of Meltzer's books. Fast-paced, intriguing, with engaging characters... not to be missed!
This is not a complicated read. You can put the book down and come back to it a week later and not have forgotten any details, thus making the mystery of it all easy to follow. However - I did feel that some things were not explained enough and at other times details were dropped seemingly out of nowhere. The characters consistently make serious leaps of logic that seem unlikely.
Also, the ending of this book was a complete disappointment to me. I felt all the strings were tied up so happily that any moment the Muppets would appear and sing Kumbaya. Likely Mr. Melzer had a checklist of plot points and just went down it in order to finish the book off.
But if you want a brainless read, and are in to Superman mytholoogy, this is it.
