Read It - The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay by Michael Chabon

Being a comic book nut I thought that this book would be right up my alley. It turns out I got more than I bargained for. I got a tale that gave me my comicbook geek fix as well as a Gatsbyesque tale of impossible love mixed in with a little Shakespearian tragedy. The story revolves around two comicbook artists during and after World War II and the effects that the war wreaks on their lives. Ultimately I never really connected with the book but I think that was more because of having read the book in small snippets over a long period of time. I would recommend giving it a try.

Get it here.
