    Two and half stars.I hate Nazis I hate them on principle and I hate them when they re used by a lazy writer as a convenient threat If I were a GIF guy, I would have inserted Harrison Ford Indiana Jones saying, I hate Nazis right about here Combine Nazis with the occult, as Meltzer does here, and you have the crappy TV fare that runs frequently on what my wife calls the Hitler channel As in Wife

    Give Brad Metlzer props for his ambition Some writers would be content to merely create a conspiracy laden story about the first murder in history, that of Abel by his brother Cain Others would be intrigued to explore the alleged murder of Mitchell Seigel and how that lead to the creation of the most recognized superhero in the world, Superman The Book of Lies focues on the mysteries surrounding both de

    Oh man, I wanted so very much to like this book Honestly, it s in a no man s land between 2 stars It was OK and 3 I liked it I liked parts I love adore the concept But the execution does NOT match the level of expectation I have.It s not that Meltzer is a bad writer The closest and easiest also laziest comparison that you could make to this book would be Dan Brown s Da Vinci Code or Angels and Demons take s

    Having never read Brad Meltzer before, the dust jacket art and title intrigued me enough to try it out Now having read it, said Huh , then looked at other reviewers comments I might try another Meltzer, but will have to rest before the attempt He can definitely tell a story, but this one didn t always make much sense I can suspend belief for stretches, but at some point my fantasy meter gets pegged and I must r

    This is the first novel I ve read by Mr Meltzer It wasn t really an auspicious beginning The novel here revolves around a supposed conspiracy that ties together the murder of Able by his brother Cain and the murder of Jerry Siegel s the creator of Superman father.The problem here is something I ve said about other books and something i plan to say about the book I picked up just after this one There s just too much

    Joss Whedon led me astry when he was in a commercial for this Juvenile plot with two dimensional characters that somehow seem to bust conspiracies with the power of Google and Wkipaedia The characters just run into answers without showing any skill in acquiring them I didn t hate this book but I didn t enjoy it either It does leave me wondering why its popular though.

    People actually pay money for this drivel I ve read better writing from 8th graders Meltzer displays just about every amateur writing trait that I can think of he s really heavy on exposition he withholds information that the point of view character knows, just to artificially create false tension his dialog sounds like it comes straight from a soap opera he relies on melodrama instead of actual drama his characters are one dimens
