I’ve just finished this book – didn’t take long, it’s only 108 pages – and I loved it. It’s a truly sweet and surreal love story, set in a world where superheroes are real, only some of them can turn things invisible and some of them are just really good at being noisy on a motorcycle.
The language used is brilliantly simple and surreally funny, like Vonnegut meets Pratchett, and the story is so much more personal and affecting than a story about a man in love with a superhero should be. It’s silly, funny, magical and achingly romantic.
Read it and realise that all your friends are superheroes too.
