“Guardian: The Rise and Fall of Your Expectations” has a sense of a novel read many times before. Young boy realizes he’s a little different. He suffers some humiliation and some loss. He uses his special edge and gets a rush from that power and control and the story goes on. Some ups and some downs but nothing terribly unique. A funny thing happened on the way to the end of the novel though, it started to feel profound. As we got to know The Guardian we were learning great truths about life. Is violence addictive? There are sardonic nods in the book to the genre and the villains and heroes it creates. In self-examination after reading “Guardian: The Rise and Fall of Your Expectations” it is a character and story that I would continue reading. The early journey wasn’t terribly unique but as the story progressed it grew on this reader and though somewhat perfunctory (as is the style of the anti-hero telling us his tale), is entertaining.
