Business Physicist and Astronomer
This book hits at so many levels I can't do it justice in a brief review. While I'm inclined to to warn about the gay content, and encourage the listener to be tolerant, that would violate the spirit of the book.
I've read professional criticisms of this book and laugh inside at how the critics so easily can miss key points. The book intentionally reads like a comic and so the characters are supposed to be somewhat 2-dimensional. Comics are written for kids---it's brilliant that some of the 'action' is predictable. It's not an autobiography!!!
But the ideas are profound. That we torment super heroes with bigotry is very wonderfully presented. That we don't know what the real lives of those around us is really about is brilliantly portrayed.
To the rigid moralist there may be some objectionable passages but I find my own tolerance going deeper as I get older. I think that's called maturity.
I highly recommend this book. I also believe it is an important book.
