Book Review: Yiddish Policemen’s Union

The Yiddish Policemen's Union The Yiddish Policemen’s Union by Michael Chabon


My review

rating: 4 of 5 stars
I enjoyed this book, although it was (frankly) a much longer read than I would have liked. What if the state of Israel had never been formed, and the Jews ended up in Alaska, instead? There’s your basic premise–add to that a murder mystery, a healthy dose of literary style and some fantasy elements, and you’ve got the book. The world is excellently drawn and presented, and the mystery aspect of the plot was well-handled. I think if I were more into literary fantasy, I would have given the book five stars. As it is, it’s probably just a case of “not completely right for me.” Recommended for others, though–obviously.
