really liked it
Read in April, 2009

Although there were several plot elements that didn't work for me, Chabon's immense talent is clear from this first novel. Its greatest strengths are the mood of strangeness it establishes and maintains throughout, and the in-depth characterizations of the four principals. While less ambitious than Chabon's later work, this novel shows that even the unresearched, story-driven version of Chabon is pretty damn good.
