Review: The World According to Batman


Hey guys, during the period where I was away from my blog, I stocked up on a few new batman books and I thought I would write a review of them and where I get them from. 

Where I got it: 
I got it from Kinokuniya Online Bookstore for RM77 (pre-order) along with two other books. Kinokuniya charged me RM42.40 for shipping fees, which is crazy expensive!! One outta three books I ordered was ready stock, the other two was pre-order. I chose the option to have them shipped together because I wasn't in a rush or anything. Somehow their system messed up and one of them was sent to me earlier, and hence I believe for East Malaysia, the shipping fees was RM20 per package? STILL TOO EXPENSIVE. Plus, I had to wait about one month or so for my pre-order to arrive. Therefore, dear fellow Malaysians, I recommend you just go to their store to purchase their stuffs, ONLINE PURCHASE NOT RECOMMENDED!! Also remember to sign up for their membership if you are somewhat a regular customer because for each purchases, you get a 10% discount, even on regular items, its worth the membership fee. I'll put the link to books I got below. I had to get them from kinokuniya instead of other bookstore because they have a lot of rare books that you can hardly find in other stores, somehow, I like mphonline way way way better!!

PART 2: My thoughts

(4.5/5) Same as the one with Joker, another quick read about Batman and his life. This book is written in first person view by Batman to his son, Damian Wayne (4th Robin), and is surprisingly, a very nice and concise book to read, as if Batman were really talking with his all-so-serious deep voice. This little book offer all the must-know about Batman, including his reasons to fight, introduction to his allies and enemies, workout regime, combats and tactics, his wayne industries, his oh-so-awesome detective skills etc etc. Personally, I like the Batman one more than the Joker one (because usually I always root for joker), but trust me, they both are equally good. This book is hard covered, fully coloured, a worthy book to add to a Batman book/comic collection. Comic crazed friends will probably love you to bits if you get them one of these.
