    It's Superman ePUB ¼ ↠ Epub pamyatnik.pro it's kindle, superman epub, It's Superman PDFI re read this for review purposes because let's face it my memory sucks and there's no way I can remember enough details to review it years later It's also just a good book and worth that re readWhat Works Clark I have a soft spot for stories that focus on the Clark Kent persona over the Superman one Of course without the alien part we'd never look twice but I dig the confused double identity awkwardness Clark shows up for the book after taking a girl out on an unsuccessful date discovering some of his powers during a botched rescue that ends with a guy dead Ricochet

    It's Superman ePUB ¼ ↠ Epub pamyatnik.pro it's kindle, superman epub, It's Superman PDFI grew up pretty uninterested in Superman a dumb invincible jock? Who cares? but lately I've put my bias aside and done some research into the Superman mythos For starters I watched all the Superman movies and even Supergirl my recaps can be found here So when I heard about this book I thought it would be a good introduction to the origin of Superman I was wrongWho is the audience for this book? Is there some percentage of the Superman loving public that really demanded a post modern anti majestic neo realistic cynical black humor retelling of the Man of Steel's origins with Clark Kent almost a minor character morally ambiguous and agnostic even atheistic?The author had so little to do to please me and he screwed it up Clark Kent leaves Smallville goes to Metropolis annoyingly renamed

    It's Superman ePUB ¼ ↠ Epub pamyatnik.pro it's kindle, superman epub, It's Superman PDFI didn't really know what to expect with this novel; I'm not particularly interested in Superman and I'm actually rather suspicious of novels based on others' works which is rather bizarre for a fanfic writer I must say I guess I was sucked in by the fantastic Chris Ware cover And hey for once judging a book by its cover turned out to be a good thing It's Superman is immensely enjoyable sweeping and highly visual even without the aid of comic illustrations De Haven reexamines Superman's origin story bringing the setting back to the era of the character's creation the 1930s and the Great Depression Clark Kent Lois Lane and Lex Luthor are all compellingly p

    It's Superman ePUB ¼ ↠ Epub pamyatnik.pro it's kindle, superman epub, It's Superman PDFI give up I cannot physically finish this book on account of it being as boring as paste Normally I'm pretty good at finishing even the most atrocious books–I've reviewed a couple before–but this one wasn't just awful it was boring It started off very strong establishing Clark Kent as a bumbling kid from Kansas confused about his powers and struggling to find his place in the world He decides to travel around the country a bit getting a job as a movie stunt man which was a very clever plot point in my opinion His Superman suit in this version is actually an unused costume from a science fiction thriller Neat And then he's just not in the book much any The second half of the book centers around Lex Luthor being an awful human being and killing people He's joined by Lois Lane and a guy who's not Jimmy Olson and they do some s

    It's Superman ePUB ¼ ↠ Epub pamyatnik.pro it's kindle, superman epub, It's Superman PDFSometimes random library picks yield wonderful surprise reads; this was not one of them Occasionally it's Superman delivered the goods a tense action packed and faithful to the comicbook retelling of Clark Kent's odyssey from Smallville KS to meeting and falling in love with Lois Lane in NYC More often than not however I found myself uestioning the title of the book shouldn't it be called Where's Superman? instead? whenever it lapsed into over lengthy character analyses of minor players or turned into a moody thought piece trying to dissect Clark's psyche Author Tom De Haven is a gifted writer but sometimes his machinations waxed bombastic in favor of stylistic flourish in lieu of meaty substance his protagonists necessitated
