6. The Yiddish Policemen's Union

The Yiddish Policeman's Union Michael Chabon
March 2010

If the length of time it took me to read this book is any indication of how much I enjoyed it, the answer should be obvious. I was really looking forward to reading a Chabon book because of all the great things I have heard, and I must say I was pretty disappointed. Perhaps its just not my favorite style of novel, or maybe it was because between the Olympics, March Madness and the overall lack of reading time I wasn't able to get fully into the book.

This is a detective novel meets extreme character development story line. One note though, I definitely did not hate it enough to never give another Chabon book a try. Perhaps I will give him another go next year.
