A fresh review

A new Goodreads review of "Verbosity's Vengeance" appeared recently. Like many of the reviews, it falls squarely on the "You Should Read This" side of the ledger. It reads (in part):
For the tl;dr crowd: This is a great and fun book about superheroes, with a sprinkling of grammatical humor. If you like either of those things at all, you'll enjoy it!
The wordplay, alliteration, and grammatical puns that effectively make up the entire section are brilliantly dense and put me in the mind of such writing geniuses as P.G. Wodehouse.
...It's got a good sprinkling of humor, like in my opinion any good superhero story should, but it's also got plenty of seriousness and deals with things like getting injured on the field. The combat scenes – which are, let's face it, absolutely integral to any sort of action novel such as a superhero novel – are excellently done. I kept finding myself thinking about how well the scene would work as a movie.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys superheroes – even if you don't consider yourself a “fan” – and to anyone who is a bit of a grammar geek. For those of us who like both? Consider it the jackpot.
So there you go! If you live at he intersection of superhero fan and grammar geek, this is the book for you!

Also, since I'm a tremendous fan of P.G. Wodehouse, this review gives me lots to be happy about.
