Ryan DeJonghe - The Avid Reader

I didn't always read, but that changed in June of 2013. I dropped the unnecessary stuff and picked up the awesome stuff--like reading! I started posting my reviews on Amazon and within a few months rose to the top 0.1% of reviewers. My reviews then went to Goodreads, and now my blog (http://ryandejonghe.wordpress.com) and Twitter (@Ryan_Reads). If you are reading this, why not leave a comment or send me a note? I love talking to other folks about books and my reviews. Publishers and authors, feel free to drop me a note if you want me to review your book. I usually stick to mainstream publishing, but I'll consider anything. If I review your book, I’ll give you a fair and thorough review and let you know when the review goes live. You can reach me at dejonghes@gmail.com. Happy Reading!

All My Friends Are Superheroes

All My Friends Are Superheroes - Andrew Kaufman This book falls in at over 100 pages and is an extremely quick read. The allegory used throughout is sweet and thought provoking. The one annoying trait of the author was his use of backstory mid paragraph. It would not be unusual to find a character taking two separate steps back in time before continuing the current progression of story. The author also interrupts his story to throw out various characters, just for the sake of allegorical characterization. Overall, this story is worth the one or two hours needed to complete.
