After watching the amazing Smallville series on TV, I must say that I was a bit disappointed when reading the book. I expected a more exciting reading.

4.0 out of 5 stars Definitely Funny but 4 Stars 2 Jun 2003
By Cathy Wright - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book is basically about a boy who is a big time racist and he receives an hourglass from his racist dad for his birthday. When ever he flips the glass, he can pierce the fabric of time (he can move at super fast speed like Clark Kent). This new found power allows him to commit hate crimes without ever getting caught. And with a multicultural celebration coming up in Smallville, it is up to Clark to prevent the bad boy from ruining it for everyone.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Book, But Not 5 Stars 22 Dec 2004
By Megan Kerrigan - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I watch the television series Smallville faithfully along with my book club. Then we review the books. While Cherie Bennett and Jeff Gottesfeld are the better writers in the Smallville book series, this one was not a 5 stars. The book is noble in pointing out the evils of racism. Kudos to the authors for that. The problem is we're in the mindset of the racist classmate the majority of the time, rather than in the mindset of Clark, Lana, Lex, or anyone else. This is a little too much to see his perspective. But, like most of the Bennett and Gottesfeld books, it is well-crafted and true to the Smallville characters.

4.0 out of 5 stars an ok book 21 April 2003
By tammy - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
the town of smallville has decided to host a multicultural event
where people of diffrent races can get together and display diffrent parts of their culture. but before the big day can arrive, someone is hellbent on stopping it. homes and property are vandalized and the local sheriff seems as stomped as anyone
as to who is behind it. the book is better than most smallville books but i think the author needs to put my action in these books and make it more like the tv show and less like an 8 year
old's book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A really good book 16 Oct 2003
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
So far in the smallville series I thought this one was one of the better ones. I like the storyline. They did a really good job on the characters. One think I didn't like was it was hard to figure out which season the story took. I think it was in the second season right after Whitney left.
