Grossman has written a mainstream novel on a comic-book premise. Though not as well done as WILD CARDS, the twelve-book series that ran from 1987 through 2006, Grossman's INVINCIBLE does a credible job. The story features mega-villain Dr. Impossible, who is out to conquer the world for the hundredth time. Dual readers Paul Boehmer and Coleen Marlo provide alternating chapters from the point of view of the villain and the hero. Boehmer comes close to going over the top with Impossible's rants but generally does a decent job. Marlo is more controlled in her performance as heroine Fatale. There are points of humor sprinkled throughout, which sometimes minimize the tension of the story. M.S. © AudioFile 2007, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 07/ JAN 08]
