TJ Klune is a master storyteller
Klune's signature mix of humor and heart-shredding angst make this another unforgettable reading experience. I can't wait to read it again, and again
TJ's storytelling brilliance shines as bright as the sun
One of those authors that can make you laugh out loud and then has you sobbing like an idiot by the next page
A wonderfully talented writer
There was nothing I didn't love about this book. There's not a single thing I would change.
Klune plays with superhero genre tropes and fan-fiction clichés with the skill of a true fan - completely aware of their ridiculousness but in love with them anyway
The Extraordinaries will stick with me as one of my favourite books of all time. It is a book that this gay nerd would have loved as a teenager, and I think many geeky teenagers across the world need to read. It is The Incredibles meets Simon vs. The Homo Sapiens Agenda, it is Marvel meets Ness' The Rest of Us Just Live Here, it is GAY SUPERHEROES . . . WHAT MORE COULD YOU POSSIBLY WANT?!?
The Extraordinaries was the distraction I needed from a terrible world and I loved it for it. I definitely recommend it, if you're in the need for some good, light-hearted fun that doesn't take itself too seriously with just a dash of angst
The Extraordinaries is fun and funny, sweet and twisty, campy and canny and smart . . . This is not a coming out story, but it's an unmasking anyway - of getting to live as your true self, in all your nerdiness, grief, anxiety, love, and power
