I like superheroes and I like zombies – a book that combined the two seemed like a good fit for me. Unfortunately, I had some issues with Ex-Heroes, to the point that I ended up taking a multi-week break from it part of the way through. Had this been a library checkout rather than a purchase, I prob...

A little uneven in places, but different enough in the mashup of the misfit-superhero genre and the zombie-apocalypse survival genre that I enjoyed it despite the multiple POVs and the "then" & "now" chronology changeups. First in a series. The superheroes' powers come to them without explanatio...

"You can't be Banzai!" cried Mom. "Banzai is a boy. It was in the paper.""Yeah, I know. It helps hide my identity.""That name," shouted Dad. "How could you pick a Japanese name for yourself?

I gave up on this one a few chapters in a couple years ago but decided to give it another try. It got better than it was about the time I gave up on it but just enough to bump it from 2 to 3 stars. It was amusing and I may check out the sequels but I haven't decided yet.

I...

Wow. This book wrapped up splendidly. I would love to read this again, as I think I would get a lot more out of it now.For all of you Whovians, this book ends with who is essentially Superman, talking about his love of Doctor Who as a child and uses that to exemplify his reasoning for being a hero. ...

First off, I won my copy of this book via a giveaway hosted by Goodreads.As I've stated with many books I win in giveaways, this is not exactly my preferred genre. Goodreads has helped me step outside of my boundaries and while there was a flop amid the books I've read so far, this book is most cert...

Peter Clines's books are damn fun. After reading 14, I knew I had to see what Clines would do with superheroes and zombies. I was not disappointed.I'm starting to find I enjoy superhero books. I read Raymond Rose's The Fire Inside a couple of years ago, and I really enjoyed it. I've been wanting som...
