A little more pseudo-psychology than super-heroism, but all in all it wasn't a bad book. Fun idea about a world of superheroes who are mostly dis-functional and they're therapist.

Creative, and simultaneously fascinating and frustrating. Ultimately it's a good read, but like a rich dessert it's almost difficult to have too much of it at once.

The writing is excessively clever and witty which actually makes it difficult to read for an extended period of time.

I liked the idea but I couldn't finish the book.
