For my next book review I wanted to spend some time with superhero’s so I choose ‘Batgirl at Super Hero High (DC Super Hero Girls); by Lisa Yee. So let me start by saying I had no idea this was a book on tape. I thought it was going to be a book, I prefer books but hey you get what you are given. The written word might have made a few more things in this book stick more, but that’s just my opinion.
Anyway the tape runs about 4 1/2 hours on 4 tapes (CD’s) and it is read by Mae Whitman who does a good job.
So the main story is about batgirl wanting to join super hero high. I found the book to be pretty funny at times. Nice girl power and good friendship.
The story has a lot of DC super hero’s and villains at the school all working together which is a nice twist. Plus a ‘birds of prey’ shout out. (Barbara Gordon is Oracle in that comics/tv show)
At times it felt the book ran a little too long. Such as all the talks with her father.
And you wonder why the book talks about a tech contest and then all the training at school and then the little bat that is saved but the stories all link up and it kind of works out in the end.
Lots of talk about food will make you hungry that’s for sure.
And the story ends on a ‘To be continued…’ All in all I enjoyed it but I would have liked to have read it instead AND now I have to get the other books because I want to know how it all ends.
