REVERED REVILED REMARKABLE
The victim of an unspeakable crime, an infant rises to become a new type of superhero. Unlike any that have come before him, he is not a fanciful creation of animators, he is real.
So begins the saga of Robert James Austin, the greatest genius in human history. But where did his extraordinary intelligence come from?
As agents of corporate greed vie with rabid anti-Western radicals to destroy him, an obsessive government leader launches a bizarre covert mission to exploit his intellect. Yet Austin’s greatest fear is not of this world.
Aided by two exceptional women, one of whom will become his unlikely lover, Austin struggles against abandonment and betrayal. But the forces that oppose him are more powerful than even he can understand.
Miracle Man is about Robert James Austin, also known as Bobby, who is a super genius. He has the superior intelligence since he was a child. Which means he is a target, agents from different companies are always trying to get a way to "destroy" him. Bobby had very few people to trust, but those people will help him make extraordinary things.
Miracle Man had me intrigued since the first page. The second I started the book I was sucked into Bobby's world. It was actually a little creepy how well written the younger version of Bobby was. He was the perfect mixture of almost robotic and innocence. Mr. Leibowitz writing style is very descriptive, at some parts I loved it and others, I felt like it wasn't necessary to be that descriptive.
With Miracle Man, I felt that there was not really a climax point. There was many little ones, but I do wish that there was a huge dilemma. I really did enjoy Bobby's character. I thought he was interesting because he was a genius and I feel like you don't really get to know those characters in other books. I loved reading about Bobby's thought process.
Miracle Man is definitely one of a kind. Anyone who would love any psychological-fiction books would enjoy this novel! I give Miracle Man four-and-a-half stars!

William wrote Miracle Man because of its humanistic and spiritual messages and because he feels that in our current times--when meritless celebrity has eclipsed accomplishment and the only heroes are those based on comic books, the world needs a real hero--and that, of course, is Robert James Austin, the protagonist in Miracle Man.
