I managed to finish this, but by about halfway through I just didn't care any more. A truer title for this would have been Kavalier and Clay's amazing codependent relationship. They remind me of two 90's emo teens in love with their sadness. The writing was really great in parts, but just couldn't make up for the fact that it was boring. Over 600 pages of boring. I will admit that I skimmed large portions after about page 400, and skipped the author's note and odds and ends cause fuck. Recommended as a door stopper.
