Dc Comics Dc Direct Batman: Arkham City Series 2: &hellip by DC Direct
First of all, this is not an Amazon verified purchase because I received it as a Christmas gift, so sorry about that.

Secondly, Batman: Arkham City is rated as a 15+ on all of the platforms it's available for, so I'm not sure why parents are buying figures from a 15+ game for children who are evidently too young to understand that they are made for an older collector base. I'm not a prude and I was happily shooting up dudes (well, alien dudes) in Duke Nukem when I was 10 years old, but parents really need to do a bit of research before buying or allowing their kids to buy merchandise that is quite unsuitable for child's play.

I bought this novel after reading so many reviews talking about how clever the twist was, about how well-written and crafted it was, about how deep and amazing it was...I think I might be reading a different book.

The main character is a twin. This point is repeatedly hammered in to you throughout the novel - in fact, a good chunk of it concerns her childhood and the relationship she has with her sister, and in the end...there's no pay-off. Nothing. Her sister was a destructive menace and the novel tries to make the psychology behind this important, but it's really not. She's superfluous. Pointless. The entire segments about their childhood, growing up, the wedding day, the fact… Read more
