This was a fascinating book about what makes a person. The jinni and the golem transcend their assigned natures to meet in the middle.

It was also a fascinating book about the clash of cultures, and a fascinating historical novel about turn-of-the-last-century New York, and what life was like for immigrants then. (Again with the clash of cultures).

It was a book about how one man's self absorption had repercussions far beyond what anyone could have imagined.

It was well-written and vivid, and I eschewed several much-anticipated other books in order to finish it. The ending fit perfectly to the story, leaving the reader with hope for the future.

I'm glad I read it.

A bit of a slow read, but still an interesting story. I like the characters and the setting a lot, and I'll probably read the sequel.
