Black Widow: Forever Red by Margaret Stohl

Black Widow: Forever Red  by Margaret Stohl

I have to say, I was really looking forward to this book, being a fan of the Avengers. So when there was a chance to read about one of them, I looked forward to learning about them in my favorite form, reading. But to my dismay this book was not what I expected. Even in the very beginning the writing niggled at me. There were just times that the characters did not say things in the way that they had been developed in the movies. There were some parts that they did, but most of the time, it was almost as if it was a different character all together. Another problem with this book was that it left holes, there were at least three. I even went back and reread the part where it should have explained it, and it did not. Despite these setbacks in the development of the plot and book, I did really like learning more about the past of Natasha Romanov and also seeing how the Avengers kept in contact during their down time. I also really liked the ending, I really appreciated how it was not your typical cliche ending, but it was at the same time. I would recommend this to any Marvel fan, but I do warn you, do not set your expectations too high. I gave this book three stars because all of the holes and uncharacteristic aspects of the characters.
