Samuel Sattin's League of Somebodies starts off as what appears to be a superhero origin story of the first true superhero. But what unfolds is a multi-layered analysis of the male machismo and tearing down the commonly held myths of what it means to be macho. Sattin's uses three pivotal characters to deconstruct these myths to redefine what it means to be brave, strong, and fearless. John Keating's narration could have been better as he seems to think all Jews sound like they're from Brooklyn and he does a poor job of accentuating pivotal moments in the book. However, Sattin's story overcomes this minor shortcoming and delivers a subversive story that at first seems like your standard superhero story, but ends up turning commonly held ideals on its ear. Great first novel from Samuel Sattin!
