Book Review - All My Friends are Superheroes

This was one of the most heartwarming books I've read. It was quite short, only 106 pages, but it lacked nothing.
On the night of his wedding, Tom becomes an unfortunate soul when his wife, the Perfectionist, is hypnotized so that he is invisible to her in every way. She cannot see him, cannot hear him and cannot touch him. Six months after Tom disappears from her, she feels like he has abandoned him and decides to leave the city and fly to Vancouver. The Perfectionist's superpower is to make everything around her perfect and Tom knows that once she lands in Vancouver she will make it perfect without him and she will be lost to him forever. He has until the plane touches down.

I really enjoyed all the different everyday superheroes. Chances are you know someone like each of them and they are highly relatable. It is another perspective in looking at everyday life to hit home a point that everyone can agree on. Everyone is unique and different and we are all special in our own way.

Andrew Kaufman writes an endlessly entertaining book that you can read over and over again. I strongly recommend this book to everyone. It was very enjoyable.
