Prosecutor : Mr Bryant, Michael Chabon’s The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay is a magical novel. Its recreation of the golden age of the comics industry is, although cloaked in fiction, picture perfect. The comic book theme of Kavalier & Clay has put me off reading this for years. I remember a paperback copy was knocking about in my first flat in Florence and despite the difficulty of getting hold of novels in English I still never felt inclined to read it. Comic books have no more relevance to my life than darts or bingo. I’ve never been anywhere near a film which features a costumed hero in a mask and lurid tights. Therefore I was far from sure I would enjoy this novel.

By Michael Chabon, A story about the rise of the modern comic book hero and its role as a Social Justice Warrior in pre-WWII America. There’s been chatter lately from certain outlets about how comic books are being ruined by social justice warriors (or SJW s for short) who are making these stories too political.

With "The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay", Michael Chabon weaves an epic story about the immigrant experience in American before, during and after the second World War, viewed through the lens of an industry that was largely pioneered by Jewish New Yorkers who had come to the U.S. from Europe: comic books.

The tale of Sammy Clay and his cousin, Josef Kavalier, who has just managed to escape Nazi-occupied Prague, is one of boot-strapping success, but also one of tragedy, repression, lost love, and broken hearts. It is, however, in the end, about redemption, being true to one's self, and second chances.

Chabon writes with his usual inimitable style, creating a unique vision of mid-century New York City, populated with fantastic characters almost as big as the larger-than-life four-color heroes and heroines they create. We see Sammy's greatest dreams realized, his hopes for true love crushed, the precarious balance he finds in later years, and finally, his one last attempt at self-reinvention in a life characterized by little else. We watch Joe escape the clutches of true evil, but agonize when he loses nearly everything, until he slowly reconstructs himself as the man he has always wanted to be. And we see the two cousins, lives intertwined inexorably, support each other, help each other, and ultimately, act as the source of the other's salvation.

There are few writers of Chabon's talent and skill working today, and "The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay" is one of his best.

This book helped me through a very tough time in my life.

It was so beautiful and adventurous and human and sad and happy and wondrous that, over the course of a month, it lifted me out of the darkness. I rationed it to one chapter a day, which I read on the subway on my way to the office. I looked so forward to it. It's one of those books I found myself thinking about when I wasn't reading it, counting the hours until my special half hour on the subway.

I feel like the subject matter mentioned out of context might turn some people off (mostly women): it centralizes around the two jewish boys who created the comic book "The Escapist" (a metaphor for the "Superman" comic) in bustling New York City during and after World War II, a time when America needed a hero. I promise you, though, the characters, the tone, the locations and the deeply human undertones transcend the book's logline. It's really about love, religion, overcoming deep adversity (including nazis, heartbreak and profound loss), loyalty, friendship, death-defying escape acts and edge-of-your-seat excitement and adventure. The word "wondrous" really does capture the feeling the book left me with - a sense of childlike wonder and heart rending emotion simultaneously. It captures the excitement of the time so well that it made me feel I was part of something larger, just by reading it.

I hope you'll treat yourself to this (pulitzer winning) epic of human proportions. Regardless of your sex, religion, race or creed, this book has something amazing to give you. It has stuck with me for over ten years and I can't wait to read it again.

To be honest, I struggled through some of the beginning, but am so glad I stuck with it. There is so much in this book about human nature, cruelty, friendship, love, & forgiveness. I read and savored it over time, as I did The Goldfinch or All the Light We Cannot See. As a comic lover whose mother bought her a comic book every trip to the grocery store (& I still have them), I loved how comics and their creation were woven into the fabric of this story. I will be re-reading mine again, looking at their construction with fresh eyes.

I want so badly for these characters to be real and for their lives and works to exist beyond this novel. It filled me with nostalgia for an era I am far too young to have known, and for a comic book that never was. Michael Chabon writes characters that are so truth-y, so solid feeling, so grounded in the lore of early comics I am convinced that in some alternate universe or other numbered earth like ours Kavalier and Clay are listed next to Bob Kane and Bill Finger, Joe Schuster and Jerry Siegel, Stan Lee, Joe Kubert, and the rest. As a life long reader of comic books, dedicated superhero fan, and student of the history of our modern mythology, this is one of my all time favorite reads. If you are none of these things, you will still be completely captivated - this book completely stands on its own.

This was an amazing book! I read this years ago, and this is one of the stories that actually stuck with me. I understand it is wordy and has verbiage I am unfamiliar with, but for me it helps me grow as a reader and a writer. This is a long book yes, but to me very interesting. Golden Age of Comics, Pre-WW II, prohibition, it has it all. It shows this is the reason why it won the Pulitzer! My tip, power through it, it is a fascinating read!!
