Not quite a waste of time

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

It was a distracting noise but little more. The story kept me going as I was expecting something cool to happen but alas I was disappointed.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

The ending was not spectacular. It's a shame as with a character like Superman one can have a lot of fun.

What three words best describe Scott Brick’s performance?

Not particularly horrible.

Any additional comments?

This wasn't a bad book but in my fanboy opinion, it devoted far too much time to how Clark was feeling etc and far too little time to cool super power stuff. Also Clark's friend Willy wasn't particularly likeable so it just ended up being a story about a guilt ridden super boy and his depressing, selfish friend. Having said all that however, there is something about it which kept me reading. In short, it's worth listening to if you are at a loose end but don't expect a magical adventure.

Never quite gets going.

Well that was a long slog. Over embellished, plain boring & not enough actual Superman. It should have been called 'It's everyone but Superman!' I understand the narrator was trying to present a comic book style but it was hard to listen to for the whole book.

Alternate version

I vaguely remember the film where Gene Hackman played Lex Luthor as a kind of campy villain. In this version he is more sinister, in office and associating with the Mafia etc. Lois is a much more capable, albeit annoying, woman and Clark is the same old, geeky, loveable farm boy.

What a Start

Excellent 'different' take on the origins of Superman without the nice family values of the 50's. Can honestly say this is one I couldn't turn off, however the ending was a little bit of a let down.

It a SuperBook!

Scott Brick does a magnificent job reading a nostalgic version of Jerry Sergey & Joe Schuster's Superman fable. Tom de Haven has woven an atmospheric version of the Man of Steel. This is a tremendous sweeping tale of America, of jazz, blues and the seedy side of crime. Lex Luther, Lois Lane and many more beside take a bow as the curtain comes down on what might have been the origins of Action Comic's best hero.
