Never uite felt like Batman This book started great But by the time I got to the nd it was bad The villain white Return to Doomstar (Doomstar 2) eyes was pathetic his minion Esperanza was a better bad guy The author included useless information about characters that I didn t care about So in shorter words did not like the book In three words Not uite BatmanWhat I liked The story once it got started was interesting if a bit predictable The author manages to get over the jarring sensation I usually get when you mix superheroes with realistic issues such as drug running and racism without making too many bumps along the wayWhat I disliked The author spends a bit too much time for my tastes anyway on original characters rather than on the titular character Most annoying however is that this novel is ostensibly in the Nolanverse timeline yet neither Alfred nor Batman sound anything like the versions of the characters from the film To make matters Batman Dead White is a mature story that may be a bit intense due to its content and subject matter but for those that can withstand the crude language the graphic violence and the racially charged conflict in this book it s uite the Batman adventure and well worth the listen if you re taking in the Graphic Audio audiobook Thexperience is nhanced by if you re taking in the Graphic Audio audiobook The xperience is Blind Sided enhanced by original soundtrack soundffects and a myriad of voice actors who provide an interesting listening IGNITING THE FIRE (The Crow Academy Book 1) experience I did have my ualms with a few of the voice actors at first but taking in the wholexperience I found it immersible and worth the timeThe scenario follows Batman in his Moobli early years of crimefighting so he has to deal with his internal demons as well as thexternal facing off against a White Supremacist group in Gotham City led by a formidable leader White Eyes Dealing with drugs internal police corruption weapon development and most prominent racism among a host of other blunt conflicts it feels so in your face that it may make the listener bristle with how blunt it is White Eyes made my blood boil not just for his blunt racist pithets but the fact he nearly rapes a girl to further his movement shudders Then again it fits right in with the collective Batman franchise considering the dark gritty storyline The familiar cast of characters are here Alfred Commissioner Gordon as well as a interesting cast of protagonists Cormack Gary Beth Grenobyl Harold and antagonists I liked the varying shifts in viewpoints the progressive yet uick pacing in both the alternating action and character focus and the accompanying soundtrack it felt like listening to a movie with the descriptions painting ach step of the story I think there were some relationshipscharacter constructions that were treated in shallow progressions but for a story that juggled both its subseuent con.
