HASH(0xa20170d8) out of 5 stars A Fun Tale Of The Ups And Downs Of Being A Superhero Aug. 20 2011
By Steve Taylor - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Let me start with the bad stuff and get it out of the way. This book is poorly written. Not just mildly poor but majorly poor. It's so bad that I got sick and tired of re-reading things that didn't make sense. At first I thought it was me but as this pattern continued I realized this book was just badly written. Not just sentence structure and staging but in form and function. For instance this attack helicopter hovers above the front yard of this guys house and after shooting up the house the bad guy inside the helicopter parachutes down to the yard. I'm not kidding. Does the author know parachutes don't open from 20 feet up? And this is just a small example of the constant mistakes in the book. The storyline is disjointed and written in abbreviated form, leaving out necessary transitions in scenes and content that are no where to be found. The characters were thin and two-dimensional and the dialog was contrived at best. Truly one of the worst written books I've ever had the pleasure to read. Did I say pleasure?

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.

1 Star = Pathetic
2 Stars = Fair
3 Stars = Good
4 Stars = Excellent
5 Stars = Life changing

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.

A cute story.
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.

HASH(0xa20172e8) out of 5 stars Superhero with a sense of humor March 21 2011
By Donna - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
No comic book was ever this well written or this carefully plotted of gave the reader such poignant moments of introspection between the laughs and the adventure. It's a great romp through the world of baddies with Superhero Powerhouse, but mild mannered janitor Dave Johnson has to live in the real world, too. And as much as he loves his wife and son his conflict between the everyday world and the Powerhouse world is intensified by the fact that he's fighting to save the real world for his family. but how much will it mean to save the world if he loses his own marriage? Dave Johnson is defiitely a superhero with a difference. As is this book.

HASH(0xa20177e0) out of 5 stars Dim Knight Shines Nov. 30 2010
By Virginia Tenery Herrin - Published on
Format: Paperback
Enjoy a good superhero story? How about a naïve, poignant, and funny superhero?
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.

HASH(0xa2017ad4) out of 5 stars Tales of the Dim Knight April 5 2011
By Bluerose's Heart - Published on
Format: Paperback
A few months ago, I remember seeing Adam and Andrea featured at another blog. This isn't normally the type of book I read, but I was very intrigued. When I got the opportunity to read Tales of the Dim Knight, I was thrilled. While I was hoping to like the book, I was very surprised at just how much I did! I won't say this is a book for everybody, but if you like corny(I mean that in a good way!) heroes and all, or if you're wanting(or willing) to step out of your comfort reading level, this is the perfect book to read! While it may seem targeted towards those of you who like superheroes and comic books, I've only *looked* at one comic book in my life that I recall. I may have gotten some of the lines better if I was a comic book fan, but I was still greatly impressed as just an average reader. :)
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!!

*I received this book from the publisher/author in exchange for my honest opinion.
