Book: Starter Villain

 Book: Starter Villain

Author: John Scalzi

Pages: 272

This is my 48th read for the year

This is the story of Charlie. He is a broke substitute school teacher who lives alone with his two cats  His older siblings are pressuring him to sell his dad's house so that they can move on from his death.  One day, Charlie gets a visit and told that his uncle Jake has died and left him his supervillain business.  Charlie is then swept into a life he never imagined fending off enemies of his uncle.  As Jake learns how his uncle Jake had started a war against the other supervillains and now it is Jake's turn to win it.

This was a pretty good book.  I have read one other Scalzi book (Redshirts) and really liked it.  This book is amusing and well written.  Silly, fun and entertaining, I sped through this easy read enjoying each page.  The ending was actually pretty good - even with some surprises I didn't see coming.

Overall a good book I am glad I read.

Stars: 4.5
