Read in July, 2013

This book is so beautifully written, it actually took me longer than usual to get through because I kept stopping to reread things. Like -- "Wait, was that paragraph *actually* that breathtaking? Oh my God, IT WAS."

I'd take camera photos of brilliant paragraphs, then have no idea what to do with them. I read a ton of it out loud to my husband, just because I needed someone to acknowledge how awesome it was.

"Soon I Will Be Invincible" is a book about comic-book superheroes, but it isn't a comic book. And I've been thinking about whether it would still be enjoyable, even if you hadn't read thousands of old comic books . . .

I think so. I think it would hold up.

But if you HAVE read thousands of old comic books, it will own you. Read it.

Holly As someone who grew up reading comic books (& I still do!) this is definitely on my list of books to read. Glad you liked it! Your review absolutely solidifies that I MUST read it!

Tika I never did get into comics (I'm an Oz girl), so I will read this and REPORT BACK, madam.
