The tepid occurrences of mostly Kavalier, as it would be more accurately titled. Is one of those stories which takes a certain period of history from an odd perspective. Kind of like 'Forrest Gump' or the 'Curious Case of Benjamin Button'.

In this case the 40's and 50's. The main problem with the book is really the characters, or lack of focus on the characters to be specific. When the author really zoom's in and shows what people are feeling then you become interested, its compelling at least if not amazing.
The entire last quarter is like this, however before that character connection only comes in short spurts. The author changes character perspectives or goes for a more remote viewpoint and you just stop caring.

Even at its best though its still very slight. Much of the appeal is made up of the references to 40's obscura. Its like the author did a bunch of research and came up with a list of odds and ends he was determined to get into the book regardless of what that might do to the pacing or narrative consistency.
In addition none of these references, even the comicbook stuff is particularly indepth. The whole thing feels remarkably slight given its length. The tone can be odd too, while occasionally vulgar its also remarkably sanitized, i felt like i was reading a YA novel at times.

Overall it feels like it was written by a high brow author then dumbed down for a millennial audience before being edited by a Board of Education Committee. ( )

This one kept me hooked all the way through. Sam Klayman and Josef Kavalier are cousins who become a comic artist team once Josef escapes Prague on the eve of the second world war, and the book follows their adventures in comics and in their lives from then on. ( )

A truly wonderful and engrossing book that can be enjoyed even if one has no knowledge of how comic books were constructed in the 1930s and 1940s. ( )

It's like a graphic novel inked in words and starring the author himself in the lead role: Wonder Boy.
 
This is definitely New York, the old-school version. In the fusion of dashing young men in fresh new $12 suits, the smell of newsprint and burned coffee and laundry, and the courage to face unrelenting evil with pluck and humor, Chabon has created an important work, a version of the 20th century both thrillingly recognizable and all his own.

Although suffused with tragedy, ''The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay'' proves to be a comic epic, generously optimistic about the human struggle for personal liberation.
 
With ''The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier & Clay,'' Mr. Chabon has fashioned a big, ripe, excitingly imaginative novel and set it in the world of his grandfather, a New York City typographer at a plant where comics were printed... In loving if sometimes windy detail, since his great book is buried inside a larger and more meandering one, the prodigiously talented author of ''Wonder Boys'' leads readers into the world of Sam and Joe's pop collaboration.
 
Chabon is a genius --- there is no other way to describe his ability to blend Hitler, comic books, brotherhood, first love, fame and the pitfalls of celebrity, Brooklyn Jewish home life, the European struggle against the Third Reich, America's growing prosperity, and good-looking women who use their smarts and their curves to get ahead in the world together in such a cohesive, complete story.

In later years, holding forth to an interviewer or to an audience of aging fans at a comic book convention, Sam Clay liked to declare, apropos of his and Joe Kavalier's greatest creation, that back when he was a boy, sealed and hog-tied inside the airtight vessel known as Brooklyn, New York, he had been haunted by dreams of Harry Houdini.
Citater

"We have the idea that our hearts, once broken, scar over with an indestructible tissue that prevents their ever breaking again in quite the same place."
"The true magic of this broken world lay in the ability of the things it contained to vanish, to become so thoroughly lost that they might never have existed in the first place."
It was a mark of how fucked-up and broken was the world - the reality - that had swallowed his home and his family that such a feat of escape, by no means easy to pull off, should remain so universally despised.
