A Book in Review: From the Notebooks of Dr. Brain

From the Notebooks of Dr. Brain By Minister Faust
Fiction: sci-fi 385 pages
Book Count: 42

This was an odd book. It is the story of a group of superheroes who are part of a superhero organization that made them get therapy. It is a complex storyline with many twists and turns. However, it is written from the point of view of their therapist who talks in constant physco-babble and things like this: "For me, Mr. Piltdown remained a fascination figure, an omelet of a man, rife with green onions of bitterness yet held together by the tangy Velveeta of integrity." The characters in the book are a good mix of superheroes including ones that looked somewhat like superman, batman, and spiderman. This storyline deals both with their interpersonal and personal issues as well as an larger "outside" threats to the group.
