    “Somehow you know that good doesn’t ever battle evil Good knows that evil will do itself in without good having to meddle“This is the story of a “nerdy” college student named Nelson Mansfield Nelson’s been an orphan now for over 14 years and lives with his “Aunt” Matilda who took he and his mother in when he was very young after they both lost jobs in the same company His mother was killed in a hit and run a few years later but Nelson stayed with Auntie M He’s a loner not prone to actually attending classes but than completing his own workAuntie is getting older and she is legally blind Since communication is primarily done with smart phones one of his professors has assigned them to develop apps that help humanity Nelson had been working on something to help Matilda use her phone easily Little does he know the impact that application will have on the worldI LOVED this book Just enough geek ness to make anyone laugh while they relearn the binary process while having situational ethics unfold before them Add a glimpse behind the curtain of television and big business and in my humble opinion you have entered a world that literally transports you until the ride is over You CANNOT put this down until it is done and it’s notthere HAS to be coming Highly Recommended 55disclaimer I received this book from the publisher and I volunteered to review it

    This book was very unique and imaginative I could see it as fitting in the YA sci fi category The technology that drives Nelson's app is quite mysterious and left me wondering So the story does have a dash of sci fi without the flash and out of this world elements Though it didn't deter from my enjoyment of the book I wondered how the app got its power It seemed a little supernatural There were many twists in the plot as Nelson at some points doesn't seem to know what he has created Yet I couldn't help but do an inner cheer as the action went on At times this is quite a feel good story The characters are believable and likable The relationship between Nelson and his aunt is quite endearing I loved his spunky Aunt Mathilda The ending provides another twist and I was left wondering if there will be a sequel There's seems to be an opportunity for one

    I found Mission Subhero to be a lovely light hearted read and was a real refreshing change to books I’ve read recently Nelson is a nice character although not particularly deep and the style of writing and plot pretty much puts the book in the YA category but nevertheless as an adult I enjoyed it It was rather a quick read and I felt that there was scope to the build up towards the end although maybe this was intentional and there will be further books about Nelson coming from the author later on All in all a good solid read and 4 stars from me

    Young Nelson is a genius who uses his coding skills to create an app suitable for his blind aunt Matilda and it has been than an invention for her This particular app ends up being one that allows Nelson the ability to help other members in the community Even though his app started to spread to users on a wider scale it becomes the most powerful created system that has the government frantic In Mission Subhero author Linda Armstrong encourages through the protagonist that all accidental acts of kindness towards each other can spark a brighter and positive world This book speaks volumes in terms of making ourselves better humans to our fellow man and offers lessons that can restore humanity I enjoyed reading just how happy Nelson was to have an opportunity to do something to help the woman who took him in after the loss of his mother

    This is a neat work of fiction about Nelson a regular young man who finds himself at the center of a massive effort to bury his new app The fact that we are constantly evolving with technology gives this story a bit of scandal and life this could be happening under our very nose and we won’t even know it This is a great story about a world on the cusp of change and the powers that try to maintain their statusArmstrong takes a hypothetical situation and makes it real in Mission Subhero The story is strong enough to stand on it’s own but I wish there was to read

    In 'Mission Subhero' by Linda Armstrong we meet Nelson an ordinary guy just out of his teens who stumbles on something unbelievable when working on a project for his coding class He creates an app that has the potential to change the world – it started as a way of helping his Aunt with her deteriorating eyesight but the technology began to evolve on its own offering a way to help so many people Nelson realises that his app could be a real gift to the world so offers it up for free which is a decision that could put him in danger The government will do whatever it takes to bury his app and if they have to bury Nelson with it then so be itThis book is really well conceived and so relative to today where everyone is looking for the next big app to download on their smartphones particularly if it offers a quick fix to a problem The plot developed at a quick pace with many thought provoking moments and great twists and turns Nelson was a great protagonist and his Aunt Matilda added so much heart to the story A great read

    Really interesting book Despite the fact that it is a book for young audiences actually it did not bother me at all Fast action well written no unnecessary descriptions and a subject very close to today's youth but I think not only apps on our smartphones Who would not want to change even for a while from an ordinary person to a hero? Better to Superhero? There is a way to achieve that Actually Nelson knows it Random 20 years old who creates an unusual application to help people Now everything goes according to his plan Government agencies want to shut this down Nelson is not alone He can count on his crazy aunt MathildaMission Subhero by Linda Armstrong is must sci fi read Can not ignore this novel

    Alternate outcomesAuthor Linda Armstrong has published five novels to date – A THOUSAND LITTLE MESSAGES FREQUENCIES THE LAST ATTACHMENT THE JOY CODE GALACTIC MARRIAGE and now MISSION SUBHERO The quality of Linda’s writing strikes a favorable chord with the opening of her book – ‘The classroom had turned into the ever present white noise of radio static of bees buzzing in their hive of ocean waves Nelson’s professor had droned on long enough for him to go to that land far far away That place where he saw his own thoughts as if they were tangible than the desk he was sitting at the professor in his unending tirade or the sniggering comments made by his fellow classmates Reality was all perception anyway or so he was told “The assignment was to make an app that would impact the way people go about their lives” Professor Green said trying to get Nelson’s attention He walked up to Nelson who had been missing in action for a while now “Have you finished your assignment Nelson?” Nelson felt the man’s presence as if it were a mosquito feeding on his blood He was merely an annoyance that only needed to be brushed aside Nelson turned back to his other reality With a small shake of the head Professor Green walked a few paces away “Mr Simpson here created an app that beeps when you’ve had three beers and increases the volume the alcohol you consume I suspect that is to warn everyone around you that you are approaching the drunken state of obnoxiousness Am I correct Mr Simpson?” When the baby faced youth nodded in agreement Professor Green continued “Now Ms Kirkham here created an app that will track your speech to improve the quality of communication It makes an annoying sound when the ubiquitous ‘uh’ is inserted into colloquy The same for repeated words hesitations slurring of speech and stuttering” He turned to the young girl referenced and solemnly stared “It seems that the only thing people can create are annoyances to punish the world at large Is there anyone here who has created something that impacts everyday life without punishing the rest of the world? Mr Mansfield?”The finely woven plot is well summarized as follows ‘With just a few lines of code one average man will change the world and set in motion the adventure of a lifetime When 20 year old Nelson stumbles upon a secret and complex trick to coding he finds himself anonymously helping people with the aid of his new app The worldwide attention pushes him to launch a bold plan allowing free access of this life changing app to anyone for a limited time Fervor to upload the new app is at fever pitch as the world waits for the unveiling However secret government agencies are worried Fearing what the effects of this app will do they plan to stop the app from ever getting out before the world has a chance to enter the category of hero even the category labeled Subhero The race is on for the world's chance at change where the new cool is being average and doing random accidents of kindness Suddenly the world can become a Subhero overnight and there's no stopping what Nelson has started’This is one of those books that magnetizes the reader form the first to the last page an dads enough parody and tongue in cheek humor to fill out the entertainment needs Watch this author grow

    Mission Subhero by Linda Armstrong is about a young man Nelson who is tasked with creating an app for one of his college classes He lives with his elderly Aunt Matilda who while quite spry has difficulty with her vision Nelson stumbles upon something unheard of during the creation of this app and all of a sudden the entire world wants access event the government This is a great story that revolves around new technology yet has a warm undertone of human kindness and acts of kindness Aunt Matilda is a fun character to get to know especially with all of her nicknames for Nelson while Nelson is a good young man just wanting to do something interesting with the ability to help people Plenty of twists and turns to the plot keep you reading and the characters are realistically rendered flaws and all Highly recommend for a uniquely compelling story

    Mission Subhero was an enjoyable read but I think the story would translate to the big screen so well make an even better movie Nelson is an awesome character and a perfect protagonist for story It may seem like an odd example but as this progressed in my head it fit somewhere between Limitless and Ready Player One Yeah I know it sounds odd but give this a read and see what you think I’ll definitely be looking for by Armstrong as I think her next one may be even better
