    A must read for Superman fans!

    I have been a superman fan for as long as I can remember. I believe that Roger Stern has created something more than just an action adventure novel. At Supermans death I could feel the pain that his friends and family felt. Roger Stern brought these characters to life for me. There were enough twists and turns to keep me wondering what would happen next. It's a must read for serious Superman fans!

    not what i expected

    As much as I love Superman. This book was a real disappointment in my opinion. The beginning off the story is real good but when he dies it's like the book got soo boring to read that I just wanted to skip through the pages just to read about he's resurrection and what will he do next. But when I got to he's resurrection I wanted to burn the book!! Because it was more of a disappointment. I was real hoping that Doomsday would come back alive to pick the story up but a little to late. This book could have been a great book if Doomsday was resurrected as when Superman was! It was just boring.

    The Man of Steel, Better Than Ever

    I was never a really big Superman fan before, but after learning that he didn't always win, and that the writers of the comic and this book make this Man Of Steel a true Superman. I recommend this book for anyone who enjoys superheroes or Superman.

    A story that will make you believe a man can fly

    For those of you who are DIE HARD kryptonians or even if your a little confused on the Man of Steele's backround, this is the book that will explain it all to you. This story takes you from the Origin, to Doomsday, to a funeral for a friend, and through the reign of the Supermen. Its the one Novel that tells it all.
