Feb 17 Third Class Superhero by Charles Yu

Though the title of this novel is a bit misleading, as it is really a collection of short stories, and only the first story is about a “Third Class Superhero” I still enjoyed this collection of short stories immensely and really look forward to seeing more from Charles Yu. I found myself looking forward to each story wondering “what in the world is he going to do next?” Because each story was so different and so well constructed and unusual but yet eloquent and moving. Though his techniques and ideas about how to tell a story are enough on their own to make you rave about his craft, the fact that each story moralizes and laments the state of society today so eloquently makes this entire collection of short stories into a collection that is worth reading again and again and recommending highly to friends. I particularly enjoyed his physics and statistics stories.
