The Unlikely Heroics of Sam Holloway

Rhys Thomas

If you loved The Rosie Project and A Man Called Ove, this charming, quirky and moving novel will be right up your street.

This is not an ordinary love story, and Sam Holloway is not your typical hero. But he is a hero . . .

Sam Holloway has survived the worst that life can throw at you. But he’s not really living. His meticulous routines keep everything nice and safe – with just one exception . . .

Three nights a week, Sam dons his superhero costume and patrols the streets. When Sam is a superhero, he feels invincible – but his unlikely heroics are getting him into some sticky, and increasingly dangerous, situations.

Then a girl comes into his life, and his ordered world is thrown into chaos . . . and now Sam needs to decide whether he can be brave enough to finally take off the mask.

This is a heart-breaking story about grief, loss and loneliness. But, more than that, it’s a story about love, and the life-changing power of kindness.
