Original Title:The Amazing Adventures of Phoenix Jones: And the Less Amazing Adventures of Some Other Real-Life Superheroes Author:Jon Ronson KOBO Edition, 68 pages Published November 2011 by Penguin Group US ISBN 1101568313 (ISBN13: 9781101568316) Edition Language: English

When I saw this title on the Kobo shop I was very exited, a Jon Ronson Book, about super heroes???? Hell to the yeah! It was only when I came arround to it that I figured that it was only 68 pages, that being said, it was a good night-time read.

So what about the review, I was kind of disappointed, Jon’s writing was a bit sub par comparing to some of his other books, but the content was really interesting, in a “stranger than fiction” kind of deals.

This book follows some of the night patrols of  daycare manager for autistic children by day, masked vigilante at night, Phoenix Jones, a real life superhero, apparently it’s a thing. And apparently many major cities in the USA have masked vigilantes à la Kickass, wich to be honest is all kinds of awesome.

I really can’t say much more without giving everything away, after all its a book with less than 100 pages, and spoiler territory is a dangerous territory.

Rating: 3.5/5

Do I recommend it?:

Well, yes, but no, if you have acess to the book read it its fun and quick, but I dont actually recomend buying it

Wolfheart Out!
