Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
Editing: This story gives the sense of being rushed out the door. There are many places where commas were appropriate to separate forms of address, clauses, and the occasional. There is also the occasional typo and more cases where missed capitalization or punctuation would make the reader's experience a lot more enjoyable. This also includes the need to explain character's roles in almost every chapter (I got tired of "former Chicago..." quickly) or giving the full name and abbreviation of the IDS in all but one place it was used.
Gary Stu: The idea of Gary Stu is a character who is perfect at everything, except maybe one or two trivial reasons. The main character of this piece is one of those. The narrative even points that out with the occasional phrase. Everything escalates, but the main character handles it with grace and perfection, never making a single mistakes. I find these characters to be the least enjoyable to read, because I want to see people crushed, do stupid things, and then crawl out of the hole. Not be awesome in one place, just to move to another place to be even more awesome.
Telling: I had no emotional attachment to these characters. Not the bad guys or the good guys. Much of that is because the story doesn't use a lot of active verbs or writing. It is more of someone telling me how great this character is, go through Earth-threatening scenes in a matter of paragraphs, much like the Authority comics. While it may appeal to some, it left me cold.
The reason I gave two stars is because I actually finished reading it. I kept hoping that something would happen that would ruin his day. There was a slight blip in the middle, and I was really hoping that some other character would shine, but I ended up being disappointed by the story as a whole.
