Heroes always accomplish great undoable deeds, triumph over evil and live happily ever after. Right?
Since birth, Apropos' mother thought he was a hero -- despite his twisted leg and homely looks. But Apropos knows the truth -- that he is just a clumsy, selfish coward who does dumb things and is lucky enough to escape harm by lying. The real hero is his brave best friend. Apropos is just a footnote -- a footnote who ain't gonna take it no more.
I loved this book. Apropos is a charming, clever schemer whose self-serving decisions bring him credit for great deeds. When he starts to believe his press releases, he gets hit in the face with the short end of the stick.
This book kept me guessing. I loved each of Peter David's surprising twists. It was easy to read, fast-moving and very funny. Great for fans of Piers Anthony, Robert Aspirin and Terry Brooks -- and for everyone who hates being a comic footnote! (Libby Romfh)
