Publisher's Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of Batman: Nightwalker by Marie Lu, read by Will Damron.

Returning home from his lavish 18th birthday party, Bruce Wayne stops a criminal's getaway - disobeying the police and crashing his car during the chase. Sentenced to community service in Gotham City's Arkham Asylum, he encounters some of the the city's most dangerous and mentally disturbed criminals.

Among these, Bruce meets the intriguing Madeleine who has ties to the Nightwalker gang that is terrorising Gotham City. She's a mystery Bruce has to unravel - but can he trust her?

The Nightwalkers target the rich, and Bruce's name is next on their list.

A train wreck

If you're looking for a Batman story don't look here. Cringey dialogue and terrible narration.

An excellent, satisfying origins story!

I was really impressed by how this origins story that I already know so well was turned into something completely new. It took me by complete surprise! I was enraptured by Batman anew and Marie Lu really captured my heart. I can’t wait to read more stories by her and this excellent series in general.

Misleading and therefore disappointing.

This is NOT a Batman story. Literally! Batman is not in this story! I was really looking forward to a good detective story. This is teenage Bruce Wayne has a crush on psychopath. This story actually plays much better if you imagine it’s not Bruce Wayne, but in fact Terry McGinnis (future Batman from the tv series Batman Beyond). Because 1. Terry is a naive teenager with a good heart and 2. This has happened to Terry before, when he fell in love in Ten from the Royal Flush gang. The narrator also sounds like Terry too. Like I said, I was looking forward to a good deceive narrative where Batman puts to use his criminology PHD, but instead this is clogged up with a lot of mushy filler that is very un-Bruce-Wayne. I think that’s the most disappointing bit, this really missed the essence of the type of person Bruce Wayne is from an early age. Bruce has been a student, but never a fool.

A great story

This story is your typical crime thriller with the added bonus of it also staring a teenage Bruce Wayne before he became Batman.

Enjoyed the narration, interesting characters

Will Damron makes the whole experience a joy to listen to. Whilst avoiding spoilers, there is an interesting dynamic that emerges in the story that made the whole thing fun and interesting to unravel.

not my batman.

first off, Will Dameron. golden, brilliant. but the bruce wayne here.. christ. i have more batman comics and graphic novels than i care to count. this simply does not fall in line with the ethos in any media or understanding of the character. lets say you consider this then to be non cannon and you change the setting so that the main character's name is thomas and the story isn't called batman nightwalkers, instead just nightwalkers. its okay, and worth listening to/actually reading. frustratingly there is a graphic novel adaptation on the horizon that had a sample being given out for free on batman day, i will still purchase this the art saves this story.
