LOVED IT! It's actually one of my favorite books this year so far. Very well written, it moved along at a good pace and is a pure stand-alone. Highly recommend picking it up.

I did like it Tigana very much. It started out a little slow, but by the end, it really picked up the pace. I read it because Brandon Sanderson said it was his favorite book. I actually think that Sanderson's The Way of Kings is a better book.

Hi Leticia! I enjoyed The Golem and the Jinni somewhat. I agree that it was more literary fiction and historical fiction than outright fantasy. I probably would have enjoyed it more if I were reading the text instead of listening to the audiobook version. Although I liked the narrator's voice, I think at times it was so calming and grandfatherly to listen to that it kind of lulled me to sleep... I kept on forgetting which character was which since there's several different perspectives. The world building is amazing, though! I also really loved the friendship that develops between the two main characters.


message 30: by Leticia (new)

Leticia (leticiatoraci) | 400 comments I confess that often audiobooks make me sleep because they are so relaxing lol. But I only managed to finish to read this book as and audiobook, as a book it was too slow paced. But I'm glad I could finish hearing it because it was beautifully written.
