Summary

Dr. Anarchy is a man with a simple dream: to conquer and rule the entire world. While he has yet to achieve his goal, he has managed to become absolute lord and master of one small corner of it. This is the story of what one man was able to achieve though hard work, dedication, careful planning, unhealthy obsession, giant robots, disintegrators, remote controlled grolem dolls, a horde of disposable henchmen, killbots, an annoying cyborg ninja, and 36 rules every supervillain should follow!

probably the best villain novel on the site

I absolutely fell in love with this one, definitely one of the best I've read. I enjoy reading superhero/villain novels and this is definitely a great one.

eagerly awaiting any kind of sequel.

So, there's this girl...

This story grows as Nelson tells it.
I honestly considered turning the book off in the first 30 minutes, it seemed so predictable.

Dr Anarchy is presented as the Saturday morning evil villain, he is way to full of his own self importance and poorly thought out plans. Then there's the girl, who is a Ninja and she comes off as the valley girl who is just using the nerd. The super heroes are initially too shiny with pure goodness, because they are heroes.

The first 30 minutes was needed, to lay the ground work. I reminded me of the Disney "Kim Possible" story line, bubble gum of the imagination. But then Nelson begins to enlighten us to what makes each of the characters and Dr Anarchy's Rules.

There's a giant robot story in here, it came off as hilarious to me; initially falling into the - Just because you can build it, what are you going to do with it and then going the the other extreme, If you got it, be sure to use it.

I liked how the characters were fleshed out, becoming more than what I thought they would. Oh, and the RULES are a bonus, though not all are completely explained. I am hoping that the next installment will provide the background on aliens and the final Ninja throw down.

Overall, I am glad I pushed on and now have another author to follow...

Fun read

Its really good to see Chereta publishing more books on audible. I am desperately awaiting his next Waldo book and this was a charming detour that reminds me why I enjoy his work so much. This is a fun little romp that is similar to other stories like the dark lord's handbook or super sales on super heros but with its own signature style and charm that makes you feel good.

fun!

more like a collection of short stories than a novel, but was a lot of fun to listen to.

Twisted sense of humor

I don't know of many books with the same level of warped humor. But at the same time there is a great deal of thought put behind the plot line and the characters. The overall was fun and entertaining. I particularly enjoyed the guessing game of who's who when it comes to the heroes.

Hilarious...

Have you ever driven in the traffic in the Los Angeles area? this book could just be the cure for road rage... people will think there is maniac driving your car! ...at the end you just want more.

Warning - extremely dark humor, blood, gore, and very adult language.

Funny, entertaining, chock full o’ snark

This is a very entertaining story, mostly due to the “supporting” character, Raven. She’s sarcastic, snarky, and irreverent, while being a complete badass at all times. I’d definitely read 2 more, if this were ever made into a series. It IS a bit predictable in parts, but so what? It’s not like you’re not reading this for the complex plot line.
I was also impressed that the narrator was able to switch back & forth between female and male character voices, convincingly, and with no adjustment period. Good job!

Favorite Audio book

I’d sure like to see a sequel to this. This book was so much fun. The characters were engaging, the book was funny, and it was a great storyline. The reading was well done too

Great read

This book is a great edition to the super villain and mad scientist genre. This is a book deserves a sequel. #Superhero #SuperVillain #Satire #tagsgiving #sweepstakes
