Welcome to my blog on this bright, sunny Friday!!! I am here with another book review, and this time it all about Batman. I was never a person who liked comic books, of super heroes. My only super hero was spider man and except him, I never bothered to watch any of the other heroes on tv. I know it sounds funny, but that was me :):):)
I wanted to read Batman : Nightwalker, because of Marie Lu. There was no other reason. I enjoyed warcross immensely and I really wanted to read Batman, from her eyes and creativity.
Batman : Nightwalker by Marie Lu
The Nightwalkers are terrorizing Gotham City, and Bruce Wayne is next on their list.
One by one, the city’s elites are being executed as their mansions’ security systems turn against them, trapping them like prey. Meanwhile, Bruce is turning eighteen and about to inherit his family’s fortune, not to mention the keys to Wayne Enterprises and all the tech gadgetry his heart could ever desire. But after a run-in with the police, he’s forced to do community service at Arkham Asylum, the infamous prison that holds the city’s most brutal criminals.
Madeleine Wallace is a brilliant killer . . . and Bruce’s only hope.
In Arkham, Bruce meets Madeleine, a brilliant girl with ties to the Nightwalkers. What is she hiding? And why will she speak only to Bruce? Madeleine is the mystery Bruce must unravel. But is he getting her to divulge her secrets, or is he feeding her the information she needs to bring Gotham City to its knees? Bruce will walk the dark line between trust and betrayal as the Nightwalkers circle closer.(from Goodreads)
The story was super awesome and I fell in love with every word. It is indeed packed with action and you feel that you are too, taken into the Gotham city with the story of Bruce Wayne.
We meet our male protagonist of the story Bruce Wayne, a young millionaire, who has lost his parents and has good intentions towards the city and its people. After run-in with the police, he is forced to do community services at the Arkham Asylum. Bruce can be described as a very honest and caring person. He cares for his guardian, friends and even for the people who live in Gotham City.
At Arkham Asylum, he meets Madeline Wallace, brilliant, cunning and genius killer. She is a deceiving character and is a powerful member of the Nightwalkers, that threaten the Gotham City.
At the beginning of the story, I did not know what to expect from Madeline. I was exasperated with her, but when reading the story further more, it gave me an insight of her character and the rough pace of life that she has gone through. Throughout her life, she has been standing to support her family, and finally it highlights that her own brother has been using her, which I felt was bad.
As mentioned at the very beginning, I totally enjoyed the story, because of the writing style of Marie Lu. It is such a fun, entertaining, and quick read. You visualize all the actions and that, makes the reader hooked to the book, until the end. Had so much fun reading it and would highly recommend it to all the Batman lovers!!! (and if you not, then you must try this out!!!)
(5/5 Stars) Tremendous, I like it very much
