I just read The Last Days of Krypton (as I'm planning to read Batman/Superman Enemies and Allies). I thought it was surprisingly good, and it makes me interested in reading more novels by Kevin J. Anderson.

I loved LDoK. A very fun, quick read.

I enjoyed the novel, but felt the writing was a bit too ready-made in terms of description and character insights, certainly not as refined as Tom DeHaven's prose in It's Superman. Moreover, I thought the endgame was too much of a riff and telegraphed so much that it was hardly a twist.
Interesting. I couldn't get all the way through It's Superman. It just seemed to drag on a bit too much, but that could have been because I was busy with so many things at the time. It's hard to get into a book when you're stopping and starting all the time.
While I liked it, It's Superman did drag in some parts. I felt that DeHaven seemed to go into too much detail at times for the book's own good.
