Now this said, I did find the book funny and entertaining. How it accomplished this with such bad writing I'm not sure. I guess maybe I just subconsciously pretended it was a comic book. After-all every man wants to be a superhero and longs to be the knight in shining armor. The Adams family definitely have a sense of humor and it shows. The over-all storyline is acceptable but nothing that will keep you up at night. Because of the fun-factor and humor I am giving this book three stars.
The storyline makes no compromise when it comes to faith in Christ. I appreciate the authors stand and their choice to make this a Christian novel. The lessons in marriage, family and what it means to serve Christ are well covered.
With all this said I think it's worth reading. Obviously other reviewers didn't have the problems with the book that I had so maybe you won't either. For the price of the Kindle version it's worth giving it a try. Send me a comment and tell me what you thought of it.

For those who give me a negative vote on my review please comment and let me know why. I'd like to improve my reviews so they can be helpful to those who read them. (I choose not to give a synopsis of the book because it's already given at the top of the books page.) Thank you.
The story itself is a great message of faithfulness, forgiveness, respect and grace. All in the form of a superhero tale worthy of any self-respecting Saturday morning cartoon.
The authors let the evangelism interrupt the story a little too much. The nice thing about morality tales and parables is that they carry the message on their own. Readers deserve a little more credit for the ability to understand the moral of the story.
Adam and Andrea Graham have artfully combined these elements in their Tales of the Dim Knight.
When mild mannered janitor, Dave Johnson, a twelve year old in a man's body, receives superpowers from an alien with an attitude, it's his life's dream come true. Dave dips his toes into the world of crime fighting and finds it isn't always easy or appreciated being a superhero. Along the way, the Dim Knight learns some serious life lessons about family, home, and values.
Tales of the Dim Knight is a fun read. I highly recommended it for a healthy dose of holiday cheer.
I do have that childlike, sometimes weird sense of humor. My husband and I are completely different in what we find funny. At the beginning of this book, I think I laughed more than any book I've ever read. It does get way more serious and deeper as the book goes further, but it still kept its funny moments. You do have to have a good sense of humor to enjoy this book, I think. Christianity AND marriage both play huge roles in this book. While I'm not surprised about the Christianity, since that's what its labeled as, I was extremely surprised about the role of marriage and family.
I had so much fun reading this book, and a book that makes me laugh as much as I did doesn't deserve any less than 5 stars!! I very much recommend this book for anyone who wants a fun, entertaining escape, but be prepared for some seriousness, too!!
