Couldnt finish it. Got 2/3 thru but it just kept going on and on. Story of a guy going to visit his dying grandfather and his grandfather goin on an on about memories of his past life.
Took me a long time to read this book. Though the family story was very interesting, all the rocket science, astro-physics stuff was way over my head, and it challenged my vocabulary.
This was a beautifully written volume. The verbiage is so wonderful to read.
What a wonderful way to honor a grandfather. Michael Chabon's grandfather is dying and Michael is listening to the stories that the man is sharing with him about his life, which includes stories about his grandmother, mother, etc.
I was so taken by this story, that I was compelled numerous times to Google information about World War II references, rockets references, Jewish references, etc. In doing so, I learned many things that I didn't know about a lot of things.
Great tribute, even if it is considered fiction.
