The Golem and the Jinni by Helen Wecker

"09book The Golem and the JinniÕÕ by Helene Wecker.Reviewed by Terry Zignego (Library Staff)

A page turning blend of fantasy and historical fiction set in turn of the century Manhattan. The Jinn Ahmed, a magical being of fire, finds Chava, a Jewish creature made of mud, and the adventure begins. The characters struggle to cope with their individual characters and desires and innocently create mayhem in the world around them. The plot includes a villain who tries to control both creatures for his own purposes which adds complexity to the novel. The ending leaves the possibility of a sequel. I sure hope so.
