Okay, this book was f****** great. And for those of you who are a little slow those asterisks stand for ucking. I would give it 6 stars if I could.
Really though, this book was just excently written. It was fun, had great character development (which I think was the main thing lacking in Chabon's last novella experiment, The Final Solution), and of course a great story with unexpected turns and an excellent ending.
I've seen that some other people have written lesser reviews and I'm not sure why. It is a strange pairing, the dense, articulate language used by Chabon with the adventure-story genre, but who says it shouldn't be done?
I think it is my second favorite book of his after Kavalier and Clay; really, it's that good. read it.

Dan I am all over this once I wrap up His Dark Materials.

Susan I don't think I read the same book. I didn't think it was horrible, but it was the same story told a million time in different setting.
