Brave Men Run - Matthew Wayne Selznick

http://www.podiobooks.com/title/brave-men-run/

This is better than I thought it would be. It starts off as though it is going to be a terrible teenage romance novel, and just keeps improving.

The setting is the 1980s, unashamedly. Some other reviews had mentioned 'The Breakfast Club'. While the movie is seen by the characters in the book, luckily, this is nothing like it. So, if like me you were one of the people that would have to paid cold hard cash to watch something like that, then don't worry, this book is way better.

Nate Charters is having a Buffy like experience at high school, as he is slightly odd looking, has strange eyes, and some feline type animal abilities. So, your usual yank high school jock types pick on him, needless to say. He does have a couple of friends.

Amazingly enough, he meets a cool girl that likes him, and horny inexperienced teenager instincts come to the fore.

Some after, a bombshell hits, politically. A scientist calls a news conference, and demonstrates that he can levitate, and change the color of any objects he feels like. He wants Sovereign political status for him and all people like him, and demands a meeting with Reagan, accusing all nations of the world of extreme human rights violations, when it comes to his people.

Needless to say, this is like throwing 10,000 sabre-tooth tigers among a bunch of very startled avian pests.

From there, things escalate. Nate writes an essay, assuming he is a Sovereign. One of the school bullies may be, as well. His mother pulls him out of school. The spooks come knocking.

Other people appear out of his past, with other agendas, and violence ensues.

We have elements of other milieu like The 4400, The X-Men, Runaways, and others all coming together, here.

Plenty of comic geek stuff here, too. Presumably Selznick is a Marvel fan. Lee and Ditko run a business, his family holiday house is at Kirby Lake, they hang out at Romita Park. His girlfriend throws a Mary Jane Spider-Man line at him. Although, there is a Donner Institute, and speaking of Buffy, Mr Giles is the man in charge of overseeing home schooling arrangements. Plenty of chuckles to be had, there.

The book ends at a resolution point, but could clearly be continued.

I could split hairs and call this a 3.75, I suppose. The editing is pretty good, considering.

A book that can basically be enjoyed by anyone. Clearly it is aimed at having a young adult appeal, but unlike a lot of that sort of thing, here teenagers seem to talk a lot more like teenagers actually do, than some ludicrous G-rated version of the same.

I would happily read more.
