Memoirs of an Antihero by Drew Blank

This has become, without a doubt, one of my favorite books.  The storyline is filled with love, warmth, action, adventure, violence, and dark humor.  A whole gambit of emotions.  I was hooked within the first couple of pages.

What would you do if your daughter had cancer and you couldn’t afford her treatments, but still wanted her to have the best possible care regardless of what it costs?  You become a crime fighter and keep the profits!  By day, Drew Blank is an awesome father to 6-year-old Moxie.  By night, he is a fighter of crime, out to make money to cover his child’s medical bills.  He becomes a hero to the public, albeit a vigilante hero.

The characters are so very well written they suck you into the story so fast that you can hear the sucked in sound.  Drew has good friends to help with his quest, friends that bicker back and forth, harass each other, but are always there for each other.  The villains are truly written as bad guys.

The plot is amazing.  The action moves fast when it feels like it should and slower in the sweet moments.  There is never a dull moment.  The adventures Drew goes through sometimes make you laugh and sometimes make you sad.  He truly is an antihero, except in the eyes of his little girl.  To her, he is a hero.

I hated for this book to end.  It is one of those books that when it does end, you feel like you have lost friends.  I was smiling and intrigued at the ending.  Put this one on your must read list.
