923 thought on “The Golem and the Jinni: A Novel (Harper Perennial Olive Editions)

  1. The Golem and the Jinni is a genre bender There is a lot of historical fiction woven in, so if you are looking for a straight fantasy novel this may not be for you.The writing in this book reminds me a lot of The Bear and the Nightingale in that it felt very atmospheric as well as giving off a strong classic fairy tale vibe This book has a very slow pace overall, most of the action happens in the last 15% of the book The author gives of us a lot of backstory interwoven with the characters presen [...]


  2. My new favorite book of all time.Yes, it s got a slow pace, that worked out for me As and adult, I can only read on my lunch breaks If I came back to the book over the weekend, I d have no problem jumping right back in Perhaps if I tried to read it all in a day, I d find myself a little annoyed The pace picks up at the end thoughI d say around the time of the dance.We get pretty in depth with all these characters early on, finding out their backstories and all, but Wecker s prose makes it a joy [...]


  3. The story was interesting, if a bit slow moving The writer has a bit of slow, fluid way of writing, which works for the story overall, but some of the scenes just seem sounnesscary.The Golem s story, almost entirely throughout, is very unique and you can really feel some sympathy for her Even very small little scenes really enrich your idea of her.But the Jinnithe whole side thing with the heiress seemed so pointless to the book overall His attitude and artistry were interesting, amusing and ill [...]


  4. The Golem and the Jinni is an extraordinary combination of historical novel set in New York City during the height of immigration and fantasy Bptj the historical and fantasy elements are strong and credible Wecker does a great job at establishing the novel s constraints and sticking to them But beyond the mechanics, her storytelling expertise is stunning especially for a writer s first novel The characters are revealed through action and dialog in the most natural way The pacing is perfect, the [...]


  5. I found this book enchanting and beautiful to read The story is interesting, the characters are well developed and relatable, and it s set against the background of 2 fascinating cultures The premise is this golems come from the Jewish mythology, which tells that a particularly skilled rabbi can create himself a servant by animating a clay image of a person The jinni is a disembodied, supernatural being from the Middle Eastern mythology, and can be enslaved by humans through the use of magic The [...]


  6. Oh, how I loved this book.The story begins in 1899, when a failed businessman who cannot find companionship, due to his rather sneering personality, resorts to hiring a dark and dangerous scholar to make him a golem A golem is a creature made of clay, with no will of its own, usually used for vengeance and protection However, the businessman intends for this creature to be his wife During a trecherous crossing to New York, Rottfeld wakes his creature, only to fall ill and die before they reach p [...]


  7. The Golem and the Djinni, by Helene Wecker, is a blend of historical fiction and fantasy The historical part is set in New York around the year 1900, at which time the city was divided into many segments according to the country of origin of various immigrant groups The two which are most in view are the Syrian and Jewish areas, with occasional forays up into much affluent zones.The fantasy element highlighted by the book title comes in two parts The golem, a manufactured creature derived from J [...]
