it was amazing
bookshelves: audio

An exotic and delicious mishmash of genres: noir detective pulp, SF alt history, magical realism, social commentary, political thriller... Chabon captures you with familiar characters and hyper-realistic detail, all while introducing the strange and otherworldly (at least to me): messianic Judaism. It is a work that has you double-guessing the old adage that "the truth is stranger than fiction."
