I'm going to let you in on a secret. I got this book because 1) J. Scott Bennett narrated it, and 2) It looked cool as hell. Just the title alone was worth a look, and knowing that Bennett was at the helm I had no choice, I simply could not resist.
This is a pulpy powerhouse that is set in the 1940's. Set twenty years after a martian invasion. Uh huh. Don't worry, we beat them, but their tech was left behind and with a little reverse engineering we started up our own collection of gadgets and powers, so that you end up with Giant Robots, and people who have superpowers. Sound interesting yet? Darn Tootin'!
Enter Johnny Dellarocca, your titular Big Daddy Cool, who has turned from a life of crime to join the entertainment industry. Not adult entertainment, you perv. He's a singer with a penchant forstage magic, and he's good enough that he makes more than a living at it. The Kittens perform with him at his club. But BDC has a secret. He is a . . . .super . . .hero. Good news is he can read minds, bad news? He has to suffer in order to do so, and his kitten harem help him. There a problem? Well, he isn't the go out and just beat up a buncha bad guys with his team kinda guy, he has bigger fish to fry. I won't say what the problem is, but it is a doozy and it makes life interesting for BDC and his super squad. Things really go pear-shaped after an attack on the club, and man does the story really pick up!
Bennett blasts, bounces, and bowls his way through this story, and you can tell he had a ton of fun doing so. He is a favorite narrator of mne, and so I know his rythyms and pacing well enough to know what to expect from him, but you can really tell he relished reading this book. That enthusiasm spills over onto you, the listener; making the story all the more exciting and fun. Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like Me will decide based on my review.
