THE MAN OF STEEL
The book I read was “The man of steel, the early years.” It is a biography of Clark Kent’s early life. It is adapted by Frank Whitman inspired by the film Man of Steel, screenplay by Davis Goyer story by Davis Goyer and Christopher Nolan.
It is about superman reflecting on his life up to when he was 13. It started when Krypton was doomed so Jor-El and Lara put Kal-El in a space capsule and sent him to earth. The space capsule landed on a farm and he was found by the Kents. When he was 6 years old he decided to climb a windmill. When he got to the top he fell off, but when he hit the ground he was fine which led him to believe he was special and different. He harnessed his powers and became the hero his parents raised him to be.
The book flowed really well, it made me want to read on and even though I was told to go to bed I kept on reading. The bad thing was that it did not describe Clark Kent very much. The point of writing this book is to tell the reader about Superman’s childhood. The author has contributed by putting more depth in to Clark Kent’s (Superman’) childhood\life. I think that their contribution was good.
I recommend this book for people who like Superman and have watched the man of steel, so you can expand your knowledge about Superman\Clark Kent.
