Book Review: The Secret Life of Copernicus H Stringfellow - Lorin Barber

Synopsis - Copernicus H. Stringfellow, aka Nick, is not your run of the mill genius.  His mind is so powerful it can stop a speeding automobile or stem internal bleeding.  As Nick goes about quietly doing good, he discovers that his powers are greatly enhanced by the nutrients present in Twinkies.  (Taken from Goodreads)

Review - I loved this tale about Nick Stringfellow, not your average human.  Way up the Mensa scale and superstrong to boot.  Nick likes to live in anonymity, doing a regular job with regular folks.  Having made his millions earlier in life, he feels he can do good for those who need it.  He lives simply carrying cash and a staggering supply of Twinkies which have the perfect ingredient for his 'superpowers'.  Great characterisations from Nick to the people he meets along the way, including those who are not so impressed by the big guy.  Good fun. 4*
