One of the greatest strengths of the script is that the notion of "super-powers" or "being special" never enters into any of the characters' minds. Tom's condition is an illness, a horror that's ended his life as he knew it. The only super-hero moment in the book is an accidental one, and the danger actually arises as a result of Tom's condition, at least indirectly. It's how Tom and everyone in his life react to his bizarre condition that makes the book so engaging and credible. When one woman in his life learns the news, it's not sympathy that arises. It's further resentment and blame. It's powerful and genuine, just like so many other moments in the story. Read Full Review
