I'm almost halfway through Soon I Will Be Invincible and, while I like it overall, I can't help thinking it needed a better editor.

For example, I just finished a section where Doctor Impossible flashes back to his college years. When he discusses taking his GRE, he's "startled at how young all the seniors looked," then, one page later, he describes mingling with other graduate students, saying he was "shocked at young they seemed." And the author repeats himself like that a lot. It's annoying, and after the first few times, it started to pull me out of the story.

Also, it appears to be headed for an obvous ending. I hope it'll surprise me at the end, but right now, it seems fairly predictable.

Those nitpicks aside, it's a fun read. I'll probably finish it over the weekend.
