Would you still be the same person if you could blank state yourself? Chen explores this idea in his fast-paced superhero adventure. The story revolves around an unexpected friendship between villainous Jamie Sorenson (aka Mind Robber) and vigilante Zoe Wang (aka Throwing Star).
After meeting at Memory Loss & Dementia Support Group, they discover they lost memory around the same time, two years ago. Zoe wants to learn about her past, Jamie wants to rob enough money to fly away to the Caribbean with his cat. They’re also dorks with no idea of what they’re doing.
I liked Chen’s lighthearted take on a hero/villain origin story. Zoe and Jamie’s interactions are endearing and funny. The story has enough twists to keep the reader’s attention. Unfortunately, the plot is rather thin and the motivations of bad guys remain unconvincing.
All told, a solid and entertaining read, but not the one I’ll remember for a long time.
Narration: I’ve listened to the audiobook. Emily Woe Zeller does a good job, especially for Zoe. Jamie, however, sounds like a victim of prolonged constipation. I had an issue with his voice but got used to it after a while.
