    • This book had my laughing out loud in several places. It reminded me of the old school comic books that I used to read. Witty, with a dry sense of humour, and at times very tongue on cheek about it all.Buddy is a superhero--he just doesn't know it yet. His world is turned upside down when his past catches back up to him and he discovers that he might be the worlds only chance of survivalif he can remember who he once was that is.There's something quite charming about this book, perhaps it's just [...]


    • Adam Oster takes the tropes and archetypes of a superhero world and firmly makes them his own in The Legend Of Buddy Hero, creating a world full of characters who deserve to stand alongside DC and Marvel.Oster's take provides a unique and refreshing look at an origin storyat isn't an origin story; a re-origin, if you will. It's an interesting place to start, and as the novel opens up, the intricacies of Oster's world become more pronounced. The Legend Of Buddy Hero has them all: superpowers, evi [...]


    • What if a hero forgot his own legend?Buddy Jackson is a washed-up boxer who can't hold a job, drinks too much, and depends on the kindness of his sister Maggie. He has started having strange, vivid dreams through the eyes of someone else. He loses yet another job when the government forces his employer to close. The same day, an apparent natural disaster destroys his home. Then things start to get weird.On his way to see a John Doe he took to the hospital, Buddy ends up in a secret underground f [...]


    • Buddy Jackson, in THE LEGEND OF BUDDY HERO, was instantly endearing to me since he also has “a long-standing feud with mornings.” The hapless protagonist isn’t the only person who drinks to forget. What Buddy has forgotten might just kill him, that is, it would if he wasn’t indestructible. Buddy is a meta-human and a former superhero, but a world-wide mind-swipe has left everyone unaware of his true character, especially Buddy. When his ultimate nemesis returns from oblivion, Buddy start [...]


    • I've always loved superheroes. To most people who know me this will come as no surprise. In fact, I think blinding flash of obvious would probably be an apt descriptor. While my friends were learning, you know "facts", and getting "useful knowledge," I was reading Mad Magazine. While they were studying to be better people I was learning about the heroes who saved the Earth again and again.Yeah. Who's laughing now, suckers?So, with that in mind it really should come as no surprise that I enjoyed [...]


    • Quirky, funny and addictive: Adam Oster has introduced me to a new type of fictional hero, effortlessly combing the depths of human nature along with the peaks; the disgust of human depravity with the honour and pride of altruism and fighting for what's right.We are introduced to Buddy as a no-hope drunk – his only saving grace and hold on humanity is his sister Maggie. She's the one who will take him in, dust him off and get him back on his feet – his very own guardian angel.He wakes one mo [...]


    • Thank you to the author for the copy of this book to review.Buddy Jackson is the world's greatest superhero. He just doesn't know it. He's unemployed, a drunk, and has a tendency to go weeks without showering; yet Buddy Jackson may be the only person capable of saving the world from total destruction.Well what a lot of fun this one was! Cleverly written and quirky, Buddy is a wonderful creation and a great person to travel along with for a whileEverything you need for a SuperHero origin story (s [...]


    • I’m a sucker for humorous super-hero stories. I never tire of the endless fun that can be had at the expense of Good and Evil, death-defying battles and powers mortal man can only dream of.Buddy Jackson is what you get when you have government that’s sick of cleaning up after the mess super-heroes make. His success and achievements taken from him, Buddy turns to alcohol, gains weight, stops showering and becomes the last person anyone would ask for help. When comic-book style villains appear [...]


    • In the 1960s, Marvel introduced the concept of "the superhero with problems." DC embraced the notion, and comic books were changed forever.In The Legend of Buddy Hero, Oster takes this notion even farther. We have a superhero who is a drunkard. What's more, he doesn't even know he's a superhero.Buddy Hero is chock-full of interesting characters, from Buddy's sister to his sidekick to his nemesis. And they are real, not cartoon cutouts, but finely drawn individuals. I think it's the characters in [...]


    • I enjoyed Buddy Hero. I thought the opening was very innovative, and the character of Buddy Andrews was extremely well portrayed, a man's man. Dare I say, Dude's Lit? Several chapters in, there is a change in the book that takes it to a more traditional super hero type novel, super hero fans will love it. I wanted more of the beginning of the book, but it reappeared later in the novel as the climax beckons. I thought the action at the end and the eventual resolution came together in a not so pre [...]


    • This is an easy, flowing read with one of the most likable sets of characters I've ever come across. From the reluctant anti-hero Buddy to the mastermind's petty, jealous son, each character is clearly defined, complete with their own speech pattern and choice of vocabulary. It's definitely not your typical superhero story, naturally, in that it features the most unlikely hero imaginable, but it still never quite crosses into the satire section. A fun read, it's nevertheless a serious book. I'm [...]


    • Brilliantly funny! The novel is laced with humor throughout, particularly the sarcastic kind. Not only was the storyline an interesting throwback to the comic book superheroes and legendary bad guys, Oster put a completely new and hilarious spin on the unlikely hero genre. Following a mind wipe and untold beers (with a gut to match), unlikely hero Buddy saves the world with the help of three other terrificly defined characters and my personal favorite, D.A.W.N. You will cheer them along, laughin [...]


    • First book I got as a giveaway. It's an ok book. I couldn't say there was anything bad or wrong about it. I also couldn't say that the book had any strengths. The book is not that descriptive in both a physical sense and a mental one. So it is hard to picture how the characters look like and how they are feeling. There is a lot that is unsaid about the history of this superhero world. So for me . . . it's an easy 2 hour read. Nothing more, nothing less.


    • The Legend of Buddy Hero was a quick and fun read. It has excellent pacing and is reminiscent of the comics I read in the 90's. If I have any constructive criticism it would be that the climax felt rushed. I did like the ending cliffhanger, and I am looking forward to the release of the second book in the series.


    • I really enjoyed this book. Absolutely not the type of book I would normally read however I am really looking forward to the next Buddy Hero story. Fun and absorbing. Great characters I could relate to and want to see more of. Thank you Adam, your book made me smile.


    • Fun, quick read. My only complaint would be with the physical weight of the thing! Cover and pages too thick to read comfortably .


    • As a comic book geek and someone who enjoyed the sense of humour in this book. I couldn't recommend it more highly. Very much my kind of book!


    • A slob discovers he used to be the world’s greatest superhero when his nemesis returns for vengeance.In an uncharacteristic act of heroism, Buddy Jackson saves a man from an alien monster. Things just get weirder as he finds out he used to have super-powers and wear spandex, but the world, including himself and his sister, appear to have forgotten all about it. Unfortunately, there’s a super-villain out to kill him and destroy the world. Buddy and his friends are the only ones who can stop h [...]
