[EBOOK FREE] (Flyboy Action Figure Comes with Gasmask)
Excellent book about anarchist superheroes a woman who can make things disappear and a guy who can turn into a fly there is a special place in my heart for stories where people turn into insects also a half alien baby written in the 90s but I didn t notice until they started talking about Bush without specifying which

the idea of real life superheroes doing something that s not unrealistic and violent like beating up idea of real life superheroes doing something that s not unrealistic and violent like beating up dealers and muggers very night but rather something lse that can change the world political art and protestI njoyed this book but liked it less than Angry Young Spaceman the last book I read by Munroe despite its superhero theme I was frustrated after finishing this book than I was after reading Angry Young Spaceman with Jim Munroe s tendency to just meander along in the lives of some people and then suddenly something vaguely climactic but mostly out of nowhere happens about 20 30 pages from the A Certain Justice (Adam Dalgliesh, end of the book without any buildup and without muchxplanation and without any denouement afterward It always feels really forced In Angry Young Spaceman I didn t mind too much and since I had otherwise The Shadow Reader enjoyed the book I didn t write the whole thing off for lacking any real conflict but I guess I can t accept it with the same charity twice I can see how one could say maybe that Jim Munroe s books are designed to break the traditional cathartic plot structure ofxposition rising action conflict climax denouement and that this is done intentionally to accurately simulate real life where somethings things happen but they re usually unexpected and nothing comes with a handy pyramid design to lead us through I can see too how one may say that since through the Cinderella Unmasked (Fairytale Fantasies entire book Munroe s characters are discussing and dealing with difficult social andthical concepts there is most definitely conflict But still something about seeing the same alternate structure twice feels less like deliberation and like some kind of Rob Liefeld foot syndrome It als. Ryan is a shy university student who can turn into a flyCassandra is a waitress at a greasy spoon who can make things disappearIn O makes me feel like I already know xactly what I ll be getting whenif I read the next book of his I was considering checking out This may not bother other readers to be honest
"It Only A Little Bothers "only a little bothers and I still think Jim Munroe s books are fantastically ntertaining reads but I thought it was worth a mention For those not up w comic references Rob Liefeld cannot draw feet so he constantly hides the feet of his subjects in smoke behind rocks in standing water Didn t care for it The so called super heroes in this book destroy public and private property humiliate and taunt police officers free an admitted drug dealer from custody and make plans to free a convicted cop killer The faceless media calls them terrorists and rightly so And the one character who agrees with this sentiment Turns out he s a pedophile YeahThe book isn t all bad The writing is crisp the dialogue sharp and in places clever But characterization is weak It s difficult to tell the characters apart You could The Power Of A Choice easily out Ken for Jack for Phil without noticing a difference And after setting the book aside for less than a day I forgot who some of the characters wereOne moment that particularly annoyed me occurs when main character Ryan confesses to his bi sexual girlfriend that he d be jealous if she spent time with a malex but not if she spent time with a female x Cassandra calls him a homophobe and a sexistand he agrees And this occurs while she s apologizing for springing the female x on him Apology to accusation just like that And weak willed Ryan accepts this chastisement as just Pathetic I knew I had a problem when I was delving into my novelshort story idea last night at 4am and thought what a great name Cassandra would be for my main character Then I remembered whoops I m totally glorifying Cassandra from Munroe s bookI think this one should really be 35 stars I had a hard time getting into it and put it down for several months Once things got deeper into Ryan and Cassandra s relationship I was hooked I realized this wasn t going to be one of those boy sees girl boy crushes on girl boy can t get girl boy finds another girl he can get
AND THEY LIVE HAPPILY EVER AFTER FOR SOME REASONthey live happily ver after For some reason just couldn t see this book as one of thoseAt the same time I have difficulty with the fact that Cassandra seemed so willing to be with Ryan I understand that they shared secrets and This book appealed to my sense of the zany It contains social comment but mostly it s just fun to read I must have read FLYBOY a couple of years after it came out happening on it by chance in the Akron Public Library At the time I d pretty much given up on modern fiction and as a result found it deeply World of political revolutionaries indie rockers zinesters hardcore feminists rave kids and slackwater poets they are the Superher.
