"The Secret Life of Corpernicus H.Stringfellow: Surreptitious Superhero" by Lorin Barber was a very interesting enjoyable read of a man who became rich, brilliant and had great powers. Copernicus(Nick) Stringfellow was true genius who was kind and wanted to make good... always trying to set things right around him. Sometimes it seem like Corpernicus had all the different languages and OMG that random trivia...but he got through it all by meeting and helping the right ones that needed his help. I loved his outlook on life..for Nick would make friends with those who needed him..."he would help anyone without wanting anything in return.
The author offers the reader quite a list of themes being introduced throughout the novel like: murder, harassment, child and domestic abuse, plane crash, some romance, and even some family dynamics going on.... so be prepared for those topics that will come up. And when picking up the read you will find out what's up with those 'TWINKIES that Nick loved?'
The characters were really something...some comical, serious and unique...from
Nick, Prescilla, Dr.Theodore Furney, Molly, Natalie, Jamie Preston, Jemima, Tilly,
Cassy, James, Cathy, Chuck, Carole, Yukiko, Monica Furney, Brad Clawson, Mrs.Lebon, Mrs. Dealva, Gina, Detective Terry Kimura, Frank Brunk, Russ Pauley, Uncle Stan, Aunt Lily,Dr.Cyris Vashkow, Lisa, Dr.Tanner, Matt,to Brian and I am sure I have left several people out so...this is where I say you must pick up the good read of "The Secret Life of Corpernicus H. Stringfellow" and see just what secret he held so close.
This author does a wonderful job as grabbing your attention and keeping you turning the pages till the end...and wow what a ending. Yes, Nick may be considered a odd ball but but he is also very lovable and yes a super hero in every sense of the word.
If you are looking for a hilarious, touching and interesting read you have come to the right place. "The Secret Life of Corpernicus H.Stringfellow: Surreptitious
Superhero" I would recommend to you as a good read.
