0 stars but it made me put one. You should put why Bane wanted to destroy Shatterstar.
True Story, takes you inside the life of a struggling stand up comedian. It's not all glamour and glory, just like everything else in life you have to work hard to get where you are. This is a great book for anyone with a dream; you quickly come to realize it's not what you expect, but you persevere and maybe some day you get a shot at the big time. Just as the heroes in this book though, sometimes opportunity does not come knocking at your door, and thats life.
