Michael Chabon does historical adventure or, as he terms it, "Jews with swords." I read the first half of this book a couple of years ago, and quit because it left me a bit cold. I'm still not in love with it, as I feel like Chabon cares more about three-dollar words (some of which, I will admit, were awesome - I'm a language geek too, but there are limits) than telling a story. But I enjoyed it more this time, if mostly for the main characters, Amram and Zelikman, whose ongoing bromance was sweet and hilarious and worth reading for.
