The Golden Age is a dark humor book filled with science fiction and drama. It all begins with a group of old superheroes living in a nursing home breathing what is left of their lives, only to find a reason to come back and feel relevant.
It wasn’t so much about the action of humor for me as it was about recognizing how it feels to grow old and want to be needed or at least worthwhile. The feeling of not being useful or wanted, in the end, is pretty bad, and you get this message throughout the storyline.
Having said this, the book is very intriguing to read and heartfelt. You end up laughing along and enjoying the interaction between the characters. The author clearly has skills in writing this style of the genre, and I look forward to reading more from him.
I recommend this book to those who appreciate the golden age.
