Summary

This is no ordinary love story and Sam is no typical hero...but he is a hero. 

Charming, quirky, and absolutely bursting with heart, this is the perfect book club read for fans of The Rosie Project, A Man Called Ove, and Eleanor Oliphant

Sam Holloway has survived the worst that life can throw at you. But he's not really living. His meticulous routines keep everything nice and safe - with just one exception.... 

Three nights a week, Sam dons his superhero costume and patrols the streets. It makes him feel invincible - but his unlikely heroics are getting him into some sticky, and increasingly dangerous, situations. 

Then a girl comes into his life, and his ordered world is thrown into chaos...and now Sam needs to decide whether he can be brave enough to finally take off the mask. 

Both hilarious and heart-warming, this is a story about love, loneliness, grief, and the life-changing power of kindness.

Quirky, moving, funny

I liked the quirkiness of this book, not giving anything away but it’s a bit off the wall. The central character, Sam, is sad and funny and believable.

I loved how Sam develops and changes as a character as the book progresses.

Some parts of the book are also laugh out loud funny.

If you like your characters to be real and capable of change you will love this book.
