REVERED REVILED REMARKABLE The victim of an unspeakable crime, an infant rises to become a new type of superhero. Unlike any that have come before him, he is not a fanciful creation of animators. He is real. So begins the saga of Robert James Austin, the greatest genius in human history. But where did his extraordinary intelligence come from? As agents of corporate greed vie with rabid anti-Western radicals to destroy him, an obsessive government leader launches a bizarre covert mission to exploit his intellect. Yet Austin's greatest fear is not of this world. Aided by two exceptional women, one of whom will become his unlikely lover, Austin struggles against abandonment and betrayal. But the forces that oppose him are more powerful than even he can understand.
It starts out in a way that pulls you in, and doesn't let go. With a child whose genius is beyond anything ever measured before, this story was unlike anything I have ever read. I quickly captivated by the little boy, Bobby, and found it hard to put it down.
As it progressed, I only found myself more enthralled. There were times where I just wanted to smack one of the characters upside their head for frustrating the hell out of me.
Despite my interest it it, some of the writing felt a little awkward. I can't quite put my finger on my issue with it though.
All and all, this was a pretty great read. Highly recommend it.
