I did enjoy The Golem and the Jinni, but I never felt immersed in the story the way I wanted to be. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with the novel, just something about the writing style didn’t entirely jive with me. ( )

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. ( )

What a story! Hard to find a word put wrong in this fascinating fantasy tale. ( )
  Abcdarian | May 18, 2024 |
One of the best books I've read. Superb audiobook. ( )

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. ( )

The title characters of “The Golem and the Jinni” are not the book’s only magic. The story is so inventive, so elegantly written and so well constructed that it’s hard to believe this is a first novel. Clearly, otherworldly forces were involved.
afegit per karenb | editaStar-Tribune, Curt Schleier (Jun 15, 2013)
 
You think a relationship is complicated when a woman is from Venus and a man is from Mars? Trust me, that’s a piece of cake compared with the hurdles that a modest golem and a mercurial jinni face when they fall in love.
 
The sometimes slow pace picks up considerably as the disparate characters decipher the past and try to save the souls variously threatened by the golem and the jinni, as well as by the Jewish conjurer and (surprise) a Syrian wizard. The interplay of loyalties and the struggle to assert reason over emotion keep the pages flipping.

"A man might desire something for a moment, while a larger part of him rejects it. You'll need to learn to judge people by their actions, not their thoughts."
You must learn how to act according to what people say and do, not what they wish or fear.
These were the world's first people. Everything they did, every action and decision, was entirely new, without precedent. They had no larger society to turn to, no examples of how to behave. They only had the Almighty to tell them right from wrong. And like children, if His commands ran counter to their desires, sometimes they chose not to listen. And then they learned that there are consequences to one's actions.
As the daughter of one of the richest and most prominent families in New York--indeed, in the country--it had been made clear to her, in ways both subtle and overt, that she was expected to little more than simply exist, biding her time and minding her manners until she made a suitable match and continued the family line. Her future unrolled before her like a dreadful tapestry, its pattern set and immutable. There would be a wedding, and then a house somewhere nearby on the avenue, with a nursery for the children that were, of course, mandatory.
"Once a golem develops a taste for destruction," the old rabbi said, "little can stop it save the words that destroy it. Not all golems are as crude or stupid as this one, but all share the same essential nature. They are tools of man, and they are dangerous. Once they have disposed of their enemies they will turn on their masters. They are creatures of last resort. Remember that."
