really liked it
Read in September, 2008

Best thing by Chabon I've read for a while (although nothing will quite touch Wonder Boys in my affections). This is a barking-mad idea for a book, a Jewish homeland in Alaska, but Chabon makes it entirely believable and totally gripping, as well as very funny. but I'm glad my extended (Jewish) family had taught me some Yiddish before I started; it would have been even harder to keep up otherwise.
