Drew Hayes Í 6 Summary

Update Professionally edited Knowledge is power That would be the motto of Lander University had it not been snatched up and used to death by others long before the school was founded For while Lander offers a full range of courses to nearly all students it also offers a small number of specialty classes to a very select few Lander is home to the Hero Certification Program a c It was a slog but I did finish it because there was a good story in there It was just buried under bad metaphors stilted phrasings unneeded modifiers cool wet river water and just awful attempts at wry humour all making for an overly long book This book did not need to be 800 pages I get that it was originally a web series but stillI listened to the audio book so can t really uote passages but here s an example of what you could expectVince asked Nick if he still had his invitation since he had lost his because he did not think it important and lost track of it Nick lifted his arm extended his thumb and index then plunged them in his front jeans pocket He rifled for a while and pulled out a tattered folded piece of paper He unfolded it slowly and handed it to Vince saying ask and ye shall receive my good man Vince looked at the unfolded piece of paper a deep crease down the middle of it At the top it said invitation in black letters I m interested in the craft of writing and I m always wondering at the choice between writing a scene and just mentioning that it happened Do you write the whole discussion you had with your coach about what power you should focus on or do you just mentioned that you did This book is a perfect example of what not to do Interesting things get mentioned while whole scenes are about inane stuff It s not even for character developmentThere s hints of coolness and sinister dealings in the background A few throwaway comments hint at deeper meanings Coach saying Ah yes so like his father Chad reacting to the mention of a disgraced hero I say throwaway because none of those things are ever expanded on or explained A little less make out sessions and a little substance please I was aiming for 3 stars IF I got some closure on a few these I didn t so 2 starsI think like 5 people have issues with their dadImagine X Men First Class focusing on the dating and socializingAnd the narrator was terrible His different voices were just bad caricatures Just because a character is named Hershel doesn t mean he should sound like Mort form Family GuyI started writing this review when I had about 50 minutes left on this 22 hour audiobook The last 40 minutes are pretty kick ass and make me almost want to read volume 2 This angers me

    Three word review Cliched Tedious Inconseuential Slightly longer review as pointless as 80% of this book was This book is one hell of

    Good Story Clunky WritingThe concept and protagonist gallery is very very good It is a bit like a unholy crossbreed of Harry Potter and X men and is a excellent example of crossbreeding being successful The tropes are there but neither taken overly seriously nor too flippantHowever one thing that become obvious with listening to the audio boo
