Read from May 23 to 30, 2011

The first part of the book was so funny. The middle was very dull. The end section was deep, meaningful and moving. I nearly stopped during the mid section. And now I want to read another of his books. Jacobson does indeed use alot of Yiddish that I am unfamiliar with, and that makes the read uncomfortable at times. I think in general all of his books could be 1/3 of their length and be great. He seems to go on too long at some point in his writing.
