I checked this out from my local library a little while back (I guess libraries don't have a quality control system). Anyways, I read this ridiculously long piece of garbage thinking it would get good at some point, or maybe eventually make sense. Instead, it just kinda sucks. I thought it would be interesting to talk about this book and see if we, the fans could rework the story in a way that well . . . works. Anyways, if you've read it, talk about what you liked (a little) and hated (a lot) and formulate some suggestions. This book really isn't worth the effort but I've got nothing better to do, and maybe you don't either. I'm a Bat-fan, and I can't stand a story that doesn't do him justice. So, let's put this one under the microscope and see what we would have done better.
