David Scaduto How are you liking this? My friend got it for me, but I haven't picked it up yet.

Amy it's ok. the story is just starting to pick up (after 100 pages - its a 400 page book) so we'll see how it goes as the two detectives get deeper into this mystery. i feel a little overwhelmed by the jewish-isms though. since i'm not familiar with hebrew or yiddish the book frustrates me every few paragraphs when chabon throws in a "jewish-ism" that i don't understand, but i've started to figure most of them out and context is helping me with others.
