The Golem And The Jinni
By Helene Wecker
What’s it about?
The storyis set in 1899 in New York City and revolves around the relationship between two mythical creatures. It is a mix of fantasy and historical fiction.
What did it make me think about?
I found the fantasy aspect really interesting. To combine the mystical characters and the city of New York in 1899 was quite a leap. What an imagination the author has!
Should I read it?
Lots of people I know loved this book. I enjoyed it but I found myself wishing I were finished so I could start a new book. Could have been my mood….
