Thanks for the tip--I'm going to the bookstore today, so maybe I should pick this one up. I love Michael Chabon.


I have never read anything by Chabon before, but had recently read something about this book, and thought--wow, what a great story line. I suggested it to someone I work with, and he is now reading it and says it is pretty funny, so I will be definitely picking up a copy!

It reminds me of the idea behind Roth's The Plot Against America--which I suspect is a little darker in tone than this book. Alternate history! Very entertaining and thought provoking.

I liked this one. I had to read it in very small segments though and I would suggest to any future readers that you set aside larger chunks of reading time for this one. I think that would make it more enjoyable.

I loved Adventures of Kavalier and Clay.

Who is Book Club Girl?

  • Book Club Girl is: a member of a book club and an avid reader who spent most of her childhood immersed in a book, an English major who considered library school until she realized it was all about computers, so turned to publishing, where she now works (but she vows to talk about books from all over and not to simply flog those from her own house). She was single, lived in the city, met a man, moved to the 'burbs, and is now a wife, a stepmother, a mother, and in her spare time, a fledgling blogger dedicated to sharing great books, news and tips with book club girls everywhere.

My Review Policy

  • I review fiction and nonfiction that is appropriate for book clubs. This includes literary and some women's commercial fiction as well as memoir and narrative nonfiction. I do not review self-help, thrillers, mysteries, horror, or fantasy. I have a fondness for YA literature and while the blog is not devoted to it (well, except for my obsession with the Betsy-Tacy series), I will occasionally review some YA books. The best way to reach me to request a review is to email me at bookclubgirl AT gmail DOT com.
