Pseudo-book review…

I’ve noticed that a lot of people are finding my blog by searching for Hero by Perry Moore. And I feel like I have to say that I’ve put it aside for the moment.

Not because it was bad (I don’t think – I really only made it through the first few chapters or so), but because, once again, it turned out to not be what I was expecting. I was hoping it would be Boy Meets Boy (sweetest book ever!) meets Smallville or something, but instead, it looks like it’s leaning more toward Rainbow Boys (which I must clarify by saying that I’ve never actually read Rainbow Boys mostly because its cover really puts me off – too After School Special-ly, which is what I’m basing this on entirely) meets…I don’t know…some really disappointing super hero league.

Which sounds really negative and I don’t want to say anything bad because I haven’t actually finished it and it may be that other things led me to set it aside for the moment, but…well, it didn’t make me not set it aside.

If that makes any sense. So that’s my initial reaction.

  1. keep reading. its really a great book even if you arent into superheros. the characters are excellent and very human and touching. if you finish it, you will love it and you will love perry. he is wonderful.

  2. I’ll probably give it another try – since I couldn’t seem to commit to any book around then, I think it probably was just the mood I was in, not the book – and it’s really one that I want to like! Thanks for the encouragement… 🙂
