The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier ClayOth inspired by the beautiful Rosa Saks who will become linked by powerful ties to both men With exhilarating style and grace Michael Chabon tells an unforgettable story about American romance and possibility. Whenever I mentioned the name of this book to a friend a huge grin broke out of their face This was a universal reaction As were the words I LOVE that book That book is GREAT Not just how good it was or skilled writing though those things are also very true but just how in love with it they were You can't fake that And now I know whyI read it in two short spurts covering about three days each and I was done Once you pick it up its hard to put it down for around another hundred pages There are some sentences that are just so absorbing and beautiful passages that are just built up so well that I found myself going back to read them over and over Parts of it were just so exhilarating to read I had to stop and just bask in how good it made me feel to read Similar to the feeling I got from Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell The only complaints I had about it which is why it gets four stars and not five is that my attention wandered during Joe's travels in the middle I thought that was a bit much and it didn't make sense to me except as a metaphor so heavy handed I will hit the author if that's what he meant I also didn't like the way that so much time passed and yet 12 years later everything could be tied up with a little shiny bow as best for everyone like so little had changed I just didn't think Chabon gave enough credit to what twelve years does to people He sort of dealt with it but very uickly and it felt like after hundreds of pages of careful development he was rushing to bring it to a close Then again that could be me just wanting of the characters who knowsStill fantastic If you have ever loved comic books this book is necessary to your life It's a love letter to escapism in general but to the comic book industry and superheroes in general
