    About RichardRoberts


    1. I ve been writing for a long, long time A long, long, long time Do you remember when dirt was invented I was using it to scratch out stories Getting published was harder, but now I m hooked up with Curiosity Quills and I have real books in paper, and you should buy some As a writer my fascination has always been children s literature, especially children s lit that is also adult lit For some reason, this means that instead I write gothic light romance for fun, and very dark and tragic young adult books for passion I love seeing the world through the eyes of strange people, and I believe that happy endings must be earned the hard way There s a reason my friends started calling me Frankensteinbeck.I could talk about how great my writing is until I turn blue, but I should let an expert do that for me Check out the Kirkus Review for Sweet Dreams Are Made Of Teeth kirkusreviews book rev

    1. The Please Don t Tell My Parents series is a great series about a middle school now high school freshman collection of supervillains who are too nice to be bad guys but too mischievous to be heroes The books have very low stakes, for the most part, and are really about exploring the complicated network of lovable weirdos which exist in the Los Angeles superhuman world.The last book, I Did Not Give That Spider Superhuman Intelligence was unrelated to the main series adventures of the Inscrutable [...]

    3. I m giving this three starts, mostly because I loved the first books and I love the writing style and I would feel bad giving the author a bad rating, but the book was a disappointment The first couple of books in the series were interesting, and not only because she was happier playing supervillian, but because the situations were complex and at the same time the flow of the story was better She is still making a lot of silly mistakes, and at first it was understandable since she is a child, [...]

    4. I received a copy of this book from the publisher I remember being disappointed with the previous instalment This one, although not as strong as the first volume in the series, I felt was better probably because it deals less with slice of life school moments, and tackles seriously the matter of Penny wanting to come clean to her parents about the Inscrutable Machine Well, seriously being a tentative word, because her plan is, as Ray and Clair put it, just crazy enough to actually work On the o [...]

    5. Hmm I feel a little conflicted about this one It s good, don t get me wrong It has the same zany joie de vivre of the other books in the series Roberts continues to display an excellent grasp of what makes a superhero book fun Powers, fights, a wide cast of characters, humorous quips, over the top portrayals of drama, etc It s a fun read with lots of classic superheroing bits, as seen through our main character s unique view But it s biggest problem is that it s book one of a two parter This sto [...]

    6. I received a copy from the publisher, and I am a bookseller, in exchange for an honest review Penelope Justice Akk has made a lot of questionable decisions across the last three books She has grown a lot since her first outing as Bad Penny, taking steps into a wider adult world But she is not there yet and now must face the consequences of her actions.I ve been a fan of this series from the moment I was introduced to it, and I ve loved the way Richard Roberts has built and developed Penelope Akk [...]

    7. Another enjoyable installment that ended with me wanting the next book to be out NOW.I liked how in this book you kept thinking oh this one is the nemesis only to go oh, guess not Then this must be it and it s only until almost the end to you find out who and what and why.

    8. Richard Roberts is an incredible storyteller He can bring out the fun of superhero supervillain action and keep it light hearted, while never letting things get so light hearted that one loses track of the actual stakes for the protagonists.I eagerly look forward to the next volume

    9. Beware Ends on a cliffhanger no warning given Still an excellent book, and I await the last volume of Penny s tale anxiously.

    10. Loose Ends Tied Followed by Tonal ShiftI give this book five stars because the story kept me reeled in I did not sleep last night because I was reading Then I still couldn t settle down when I read it because of the ending I m hungry for the next book I did not get an advanced copy for a review I just want to discuss this book I marked my copy of the book with notes about all my feels and observations while I read the book However, I do not currently have access to those notes I am still reeling [...]

    11. I really like this series, but something about the last half of this one feels off to me This is my personal peeve and rant against a trend in books I really really hate, dumbing down very smart people to drive the story It triggers what I call my Rant mode and makes it impossible for me to NOT say anything I have several such pet peeves about stuff in the world.I have one problem with books that bugs me, if it has characters that are smart or intelligent enough there are a things that they will [...]

I have a received a free copy of this book in exhange for a BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH No I didn t.I got this book because I am a hopeless optimist.Congratulations Dick, you put yet another chink in that.If I had of an ego i would say that he read my review of the previous book and wrote this as a take that to it The good news is i don t and I think he just realized that people could indeed skip his most horrible second book so he wrote this piece to force people to.No spoilers but do not read this b [...]

    13. The Inscrutable Machine is back Penny and friends have made to the summer vacation Penny s parents have removed her no superheroing restrictions, So, Penny is betermined to finally but Bad Penny to rest and become the superhero that she wants to be Of course, no plan is ever perect or works out like we plan, especially if it involves mad science and superheroes.I do enjoy this series It is a lot of fun and is a nice change form the serious superhero stories that overwhelm most of the market That [...]

    14. Not the best in the seriesFirst, this book is significantly shorter than previous ones in the series, maybe only half the length Secondly, it ends on a cliffhanger and that cliffhanger comes out of nowhere It s pretty clear that this book exists so the author can manoeuvre plots and characters into a place where he can wrap up the story with his next book, something he admits in a note at the end as a result some of the content in this book can appear contrived.It s also clear, and has been sinc [...]

    15. Please keep in your mind I am not the intended audience for this novel or series.This book went all over the place It seemed like a series of short stories strung together than one cohesive novel Short stories comprising a novel can work Drew Hayes does this admirably with his Fred series Plus the ending just did not sit well with me I was all for the direction we were heading in until the final couple of chapters.I had read somewhere that the Please Don t Tell My Parents series was going to be [...]

    16. Holy CrapAll say first off that book two was alright, and book three was better but still a bit drifting and off feeling But thiswow I even had an idea on the ending but was proven abruptly wrong even as something else was proven right.Loose and loose ish threads have been brought up in this book, tying some off and extending others enough to show they re still remembered and might have further importance The universe is fleshed out with all of the background references and, if they might be a b [...]

    17. Bwaagh No real conclusion, just a bunch of plot lines left with nasty barbed hooks Rant over While excellent, Nemesis feels like it was intended to be the final in an arc only for the author to find that they had a lot plot to fit in and an impending word count limit n.b Rowling s Law kids will read long books if they re kept interested and so split the draft into two A couple of plot lines are bought up and tied off quickly Hi Remy, I hope you didn t accidentally introduce a virulent pathogen [...]

    18. Better than books 2 and 3, but not as good as book 1 or the prequel The ending does have a bit of nightmare fuel for younger readers so parents may want to read it first before giving it to them, to see if it s something you think your kids can handle My main complaint with the book is that it has several callbacks from book 2, the one book in the series that I flat out didn t like, that felt really forced into a story where they didn t belong, like pretty much the entirety of book 2 They just k [...]

Kindle UnlimitedThis was the last of the 5, and it was the worst of the 5 No real lessons learned, the previous books plots and relationships just glossed over, and a depressing endingwhat LESS could anyone want from a book.I Did NOT Give That Spider Superhuman Intelligence Please Don t Tell My Parents Book 4 like.5 prequel shows it as book 4, so shows 2 book 4 s Please Don t Tell My Parents I m a Supervillain 1Please Don t Tell My Parents I Blew Up the Moon 2Please Don t Tell My Parents I ve G [...]

    21. I absolutely LOVED this book and really, the entire series, which I devoured non stop over the course of the last three days Penny is a great three dimensional character flawed in the most believable way, but with a good heart She struggles with a lot of the same problems that we all do minus, alas, the superpowers communicating with her parents, getting along with her peers, and navigating the tricky world of starting to date Holds up great for adult readers, but is age appropriate and entertai [...]

    22. I had hoped that this book would revive my love of the characters, but instead, it has just pissed me off How do you make the most interesting part of the book a cliffhanger to be resolved in the next book Cliffhangers are a cheap trick to lure readers into another book when your story doesn t do it for you A good lure is a complete stand alone story with a thread to be resolved later, not a straight up cliff Just damned frustrating.

    23. I don t know if I buy the ending here.Question You wake up to find that you re actually a clone that the real you just created, and you have all your memories and personality The real you hands you 100,000 Do you murder yourself and take their place, or try to build a new life Also I don t think I understand what even happened There s a soul switcher and a soul copier Did gold use the soul switcher to switch Penny and steel Why wouldn t gold switch Penny and gold

    24. Daaang view spoiler Penny has spent the past three books messing with evil artifacts and poorly understood technology, and for the past three books it s gone swimmingly.In this book, she continues her track record of making bad decisions, and one of those decisions catches up to her.Looking forward to the conclusion hide spoiler

    25. I have enjoyed all the books in the series and this was no exception.The story progress at a steady pace, in some cases a little slow but that is not an issue for me The ending of the book was something I was not expecting but when looking back I can see the clues that the author has left hinting at this possibility.I am eagerly looking forward to the next book.

    26. I was enjoying this series immensely until about 2 3 of the way through this book and then it got frustrating I expected this to be the last in the series but, nope, it has a cliffhanger ending a pretty awful one in my opinion so I fought my way through the final third of this book only to be left deeply unsatisfied and a little pissed off.

    27. I really liked this series, though in my opinion the first book was the best, but this book was something of a disappointment in my opinion It lacked the charme of the earlier books and I didn t really enjoy its central storyline all that much, especially towards the end.

    28. This book really tied some of the earlier books together and you get a return of a lot of characters I actually like that at the end she sabotaged herself I really want the next book RIGHT NOW Please

    29. While this story was not as strong as previous three I did enjoy up to the ending that felt a lot darker than anything prior Do not know if I want to continue with the last book when it comes out The ending felt clunky and left me feeling sad.

    30. A good continuation There are a few places where poor editing interfered with the story, but this is a good continuation of the series and as fun and entertaining a story as any in the series
