2 of 5 Suck-Fest Stars – Super Nobody by Brent Meske

Apparently, this book was specifically written to be kid-friendly. In other words, there’s no profanity. Well, fuck that shit. But it also seemed that it wasn’t just profanity that was kept out of the book. Pretty much anything that any parent might find offensive, is left out of this book. So what’s left is a total suck-fest.

With the premise of this book, you’d think that there would be some fun to be had. I mean, the story centers around a Junior High which is stocked full of teenage super-heroes. Well, not all of them are super-heroes. Some have yet to activate, like the main kid the story is centered around.

Why the bloody fuck do you write a story about super-heroes, only to center on the one kid who isn’t one? Just to piss me off? It’s working.

So imagine the X-Men school, with all the mutants, and awesomeness. That’s what this school is supposed to be, but without the awesomeness. Just boring-ass normal everyday bullshit teenage crap. This kid gets picked on at school. Who cares? Girls can’t stand to be near him. Big fucking deal. Welcome to teenage life, you stupid fuck.

I don’t understand how the hell this author took a perfectly good idea and completely skull fucked it. Sure, there is a bit of super-hero stuff here and there, but for the most part, it’s just a retarded story. There just isn’t enough super bits to make up for the sucky bits.

3 of 5 Mind-Bending Stars – The Cult of Me by Michael Brookes.

I really liked this book. The story was fascinating. The narrator of this book is like an evil Professor Xavier, who can read minds, manipulate minds, control people with his mind, etc.

His talent starts out innocent enough. It’s just some stupid party trick. But then, he gets bored. He starts hanging out with some goth kids. Starts making people do things. Kills some animals. You know, the usual serial killer type training.

Then, he kills a bunch of people and gets sent to prison. All of the brutal murders were captured on CCTV. It was pretty damn obvious that he was guilty. There were even several eye witnesses. But, when the trial started, none of the witnesses could testify because evil Professor X would just hijack their brain.

That’s the first half of this book. And it was awesome. Then, it turns into a completely different story. I mean, it goes from being a cool serial killer story to a story of literal Armageddon.

The courts somehow figure out that evil Professor X has this gift, this talent that can manipulate minds. So, of course, some secret society takes over the case, and locks up evil X for their own personal amusement. They put X through some silly mental boot camp, so X can defeat the evil guy who’s trying to summon the Armageddon.

It’s like after the trial, Dan Brown took over writing this book. It just turned into the goddamn DaVinci Code. Rife with symbols and gods and demons and secret societies, and what the fuck. I don’t get it. He took a perfectly good story and just had to go and skull fuck it.

Seriously, once you get to chapter 22 in this book, which is right about the halfway point, just throw it away, or burn it, or piss on it. Just don’t continue reading it, because it turns into complete horseshit.
