All My Friends are Superheroes is rated 4 out of 5 by 1.
All Tom's friends really are superheroes. Tom even married a superhero, the Perfectionist. But at their wedding the Perfectionist is hypnotized by her ex, Hypno, to believe that Tom is invisible. Nothing he does can make her see him. Six months later the Perfectionist is sure that Tom has abandoned her, so she's moving to Vancouver. She's going to use her superpower to leave all the heartbreak behind. With no idea that Tom is beside her she boards the plane: Tom has until they touch down to convince her he's there, or he loses her forever. A wonderful, heartbreakingly funny tribute to love, sweet love. 'A work of adorable genius. Buy it, borrow it, steal it but just make sure you read it.' Scott Pack 'An adorable book.' Toby Litt 'The funniest, quirkiest romance of the year.' Marie Phillips 'One of the saddest, funniest, strangest, and most romantic books ... Brilliant!' The Bookseller

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from We are all superheroes in our own right If my love for "Born Weird" was any indication, I knew I was going to enjoy one of Andrew Kaufman's earlier popular works, "All My Friend Are Superheroes." Disappointed I was not. This 10th Anniversary Edition included more superhero profiles - anecdotes on who they are and what their superpower consisted of. They could be the most mundane, or be of the consequential use, but these powers of theirs ultimately reminds us just how human they are because of how they use and perceive their special abilities. The couple dozens of the 249 superheroes in Toronto introduced to us really are reflective of real-life people around us from different slices of society. Besides that, what "All My Friends Are Superheroes" really centers on is a relationship that has run into an obstacle, and the lengths both sides will go to, if they were willing to. Its whimsical presentation only added a delightful quirk to a romantic story. Bravo Andrew Kaufman, and that imaginative mind of yours.
