Review: The Teleporter by Lee Hall

Book covers don’t get much better than this. A classy bar setting type feel which fits perfectly. I feel like I’m missing an olive and a toothpick? Not quite sure what the review quote on the right is referring to, haha. Fun fact – the defocused effect of the background is called Bokeh.

Summary:

( Extracted from Amazon )

What if there was a power like no other? What if one drunken slouch happened to stumble where nobody has stumbled before and discovered the ability to teleport!
Just when you thought there were enough super hero stories in this world, we made another one…
Kurt Wiseman is your average mid-twenties slouch with a serial thirst for alcohol, that is until destiny calls upon him to stumble where no man has clumsily stumbled before. By day he works for a familiar sounding, power hungry, media controlling, mega rich American businessman who represents everything wrong with society today. Whilst investigating this politically loaded story arc Kurt accidentally acquires a super power like no other. The ability to teleport!
Before he can think about saving the day, Wiseman must endure a journey of self-reflection by earning the trust of his friends and overcoming his greatest weakness, booze. Even if the path is filled with comic book cliché, inappropriate one liners and genre busting fourth wall action.
Not all heroes in this world are the same and with great power comes the possibility to go viral! This is a story that will unite humanity…
Kurt Wiseman is the Teleporter!

Evaluation:

I can’t really pick any two word combination in this whole book that I can scoff at, or three word combination, or four words either. Heck, there isn’t even a whole sentence I don’t like, or paragraph or a chapter. Okay, okay. The whole book is great.

This book is laced with vividly lit scenes described just enough ( no extra long descriptions that let your mind lose its place in the book ) to get through to the next joke or action packed section which constantly delivers solid writing, side notes and story line from Mr. Lee Hall.

I really, really like the part where The Teleporter gains his power. I can’t say anything would have attributed better to the scene and feeling than the words that were already written on the page. This is a modern indie classic that everyone can relate to. I liked reading it just as much as any other book I read that knocks it out of the park.

Recommendation:

Lee Hall delivers jokes, super heroes, action, alcohol, and relatable context in a easy to read, fun format. No matter what your taste for genre is, I believe everyone can find enjoyment in The Teleporter. I rate it ★★★★★ 5 stars out of 5.
