What made you want to read ‘Lois Lane: Fall Out’? When I read the blurb, I was immediately intrigued by the idea of a book about Lois Lane before she met Superman. I must confess that I’m not an avid Superman fan and I think I’ve only ever watched one Superman film. However I do know the idea of Lois Lane and I was interested to see who she would be if you removed Superman
Are you as in love with the cover as we are? The cover is so cool. It’s eye catching at first glance and then when you look closer, you can see as well as the epic graphics of the girl with cool hair and sunglasses, that the background of the the cover is text from the novel which is original and totally awesome. I’m definitely in love with this cover!
Tell us what you thought of the character of Lois. I don’t know what I was expecting from Lois, but it certainly wasn’t this. She was a sassy, determined teenage journalist, with a nose for the truth and a desperation to help her friends. She was by no means incomplete without Superman and was in fact the hero of her story. I really enjoyed reading her story.
What about the plot? Was it gripping, or just okay? The plot was really interesting, with an intriguing mystery to be solved by Lois and her team of journalists. Though I must confess at times it felt a little like this novel was a set up for the rest of the series, I liked that the novel focused on Lois Lane becoming a journalist and through that she ended up getting involved a high tech mystery.
Would you read another book by Gwenda Bond? Definitely. I’m eager to see what happens next in Lois Lane’s adventures. I really hope that Gwenda ends up writing the part when Lois Lane discovers Superman and his powers, because so far, there have only been subtle references to him. I look forward to the next book.
Anything extra you’d like to say about the book? Just that I loved the premise and am eager for the next book so I can see the next step in Lois Lane’s journey as her own hero.
Rate out of 10. I’d give an 8 out of 10 because I really enjoyed it, but I did feel like it was a set up novel at times.
