I lived in Berkeley for twenty years. I know the area, and I thought I knew the culture, but from the get-go I had no idea what Chabon was talking about.

I got to page 68 and quit. I don't normally give stars to books I don't finish, but since this was my second try I thought I deserved the right to rate. If there was humor, I didn't get it. In fact, I didn't get a lot of what was going on or being said. And finally, upon reaching chapter 9, I felt the book was becoming disgusting. I wanted to like this book, but I couldn't.

This is a fantastic book for anybody interested in comics, jews, jews in comics, the politicizing of comics, how people were ripped off left and right in the creation of comics, or more.

Not to mention, how people react to sex, loss, homosexuality, Jews, war, and the ugly truth that you are, in fact, not a super hero -- you are not going to stop a bad man from hurting those you care about... and what people will do to make dreams reality.

A sweet, short mystery featuring a very old cranky man, a mute boy and his parrot, and other odd and shady characters. The boy is a Jewish refugee in the English countryside , his only friend a rare parrot who squawks out poetry and series of numbers in German.
I really enjoyed the twists , and I thought the ending was neat and sweet. No spoilers here!
