We rated this book:


Charlie Fitzer is down on his luck, but his fortune is about to change. His wealthy uncle Jake recently died. Charlie must represent his uncle at the memorial service to collect his inheritance. At the service, Charlie discovered how many enemies his uncle had and that they were now his enemies. Stepping into his uncle’s world meant that Charlie was the newest villain in a world of villainy. Charlie is learning the hard way just how cutthroat the business really is. But Charlie has something the other villains don’t have. He has two cats, not just one.

Starter Villain by best-selling author John Scalzi is a laugh-out-loud comedy of errors. Scalzi brilliantly sheds light on the shady world of supervillains. This easy-to-read, hard-to-put-down novel is all fun and games. Scalzi is a master of the absurd, and this book does not take itself too seriously. There is a reason this book was up for sci-fi book of the year on Goodreads. Readers looking for hints on how to be the world’s next ultra-bad guy, or anyone looking for a very entertaining book, join Charlie in Starter Villain.
