The Golem and the Jinni
The Golem and the Jinni | Helene Wecker
Helene Wecker's dazzling debut novel tells the story of two supernatural creatures who appear mysteriously in 1899 New York. Chava is a golem, a creature made of clay, brought to life by a strange man who dabbles in dark Kabbalistic magic. When her master dies at sea on the voyage from Poland, she is unmoored and adrift as the ship arrives in New York Harbor. Ahmad is a jinni, a being of fire, born in the ancient Syrian Desert. Trapped in an old copper flask by a Bedouin wizard centuries ago, he is released accidentally by a tinsmith in a Lower Manhattan shop.Struggling to make their way in this strange new place, the Golem and the Jinni try to fit in with their neighbors while masking their true natures. Surrounding them is a community of immigrants: the coffeehouse owner Maryam Faddoul, a pillar of wisdom and support for her Syrian neighbors; the solitary ice cream maker Saleh, a damaged man cursed by tragedy; the kind and caring Rabbi Meyer and his beleaguered nephew, Michael, whose Sheltering House receives newly arrived Jewish men; the adventurous young socialite Sophia Winston; and the enigmatic Joseph Schall, a dangerous man driven by ferocious ambition and esoteric wisdom.Meeting by chance, the two creatures become unlikely friends whose tenuous attachment challenges their opposing natures, until the night a terrifying incident drives them back into their separate worlds. But a powerful menace will soon bring the Golem and the Jinni together again, threatening their existence and forcing them to make a fateful choice.Marvelous and compulsively readable, The Golem and the Jinni weaves strands of folk mythology, historical fiction, and magical fable into a wondrously inventive and unforgettable tale.

My first book recorded in my new reading journal, Anne Bogel‘s My Reading Life. I bought this as a Kindle Daily Deal in 2014 after hearing so much good buzz about it and finally read it when my book club chose it as a bonus pick. Lucky me, the sequel just came out in June. Unlike those who read and loved this when it first came out, I didn‘t have to wait 8 long years. So happy to be able to stay in this world a bit longer.

What a joy to see a #20in4 readathon falling on my FiYAY and weekend off! I want to read Wecker‘s The Hidden Palace, but first getting reacquainted with old books friends Chava and Ahmad.

P.S. I‘m catching up on a month worth of the litsy feed. @Andrew65 I hope you and your wife are improving with your health situation. Sending good thoughts to you both.

Andrew65 Thanks for the best wishes, pleased to say finally turned the corner (Day 20 for me, Day 17 for my wife) but very weak and go backwards some days (like today - been exhausted all day again). 2mo

Two magical creatures find themselves adrift in New York in 1899. The Golem, created to be a bride, is incapable of independent life, and capable of great violence. The Jinni was enslaved by a wizard. Mistakenly awoken from his vessel imposed slumber, his nature makes it impossible for him to know the detrimental effects of his actions on those around him. They meet, and secrets are revealed. A remarkable morality tale; very well written.

This is a reread for me. I'm bumping my original 4.5 star rating up to 5 stars. The characters, relationships, and early 1900s NYC setting are just so good, as is the audiobook narrator.

All through this second reading I was in awe of Wecker‘s skillful descriptions. By the time I finished, I was of the mind that a lavishly illustrated edition with contributions from artists of varied styles would be a thing of beauty. So many moments in this story cry out for visual interpretation.

I was lucky enough to be able to snag an ARC of the sequel though my old bookselling contacts. Excited to see what‘s next for Chava and Ahmad.

Cheshirecat913 I really enjoyed this book too! The setting was a character of its own. I would love to see an illustration of the ceiling Jinni made, the street stores, and the park statue. 6mo
bookseller_cate @Cheshirecat913 Excellent ideas. Without leaving spoilers, I‘d love illustrations of the Golem running and the Jinni leaping to the balcony.😊📚💚 6mo

This is my kind of book.
New York City at the turn of the century, mythological beings finding their way in a world that doesn't does recognize them, and back stories converging together. It is one of those slower pace books that create a good atmosphere by letting the settings and the characters build the whole around them a step or a thought at a time.

AllisonM89 I adored this book. Looking forward to the sequel coming out next month 7mo

I enjoyed this book as much now as I did in 2013, maybe more. I wanted to reread to prep for the long awaited follow up Hidden Palaces coming out June 8. This is an unlikely story of friendship and magic. The setting is 1899 in New York, so also intriguing to imagine the communities of immigrants and the city as it would have been at the turn of the 20th century.

I love how this book is constructed, how Wecker holds all the cards in her hand and deals each one out with just the right timing. The setting---New York City at the turn of the 20th century---is beautifully rendered and easy to see. Some of the twists border on too twisty for me, but the events all make sense with the characters and the story. Another great title from the Level 12 Build Your Library curriculum.

Set in turn of the century New York City and spanning across a millennium, I have to give credit to Helene. I've never read any of her other books but she's spun this story like a talented elder would around a campfire. I felt like a child being told a brand new fairytale for the first time. She told her story in great detail with exceptional flavor and imagery.
I recommend this book for anyone who loves history & great detail in a story

DGRachel I understand that. I can‘t listen to anything narrated by Davina Porter anymore, because I‘ve listened to the first 4 1/2 Outlander books, and every time I listen to her, I think of the Frasers and it completely pulls me out of the other book! 2y

The tale of two supernatural beings who meet where the Jewish and Syrian cultures rub up against each other in Manhattan in 1900 New York. It brings the times and places to life in a way that reminded me of Middlesex, while telling the tale of these two beings, whose lives are more intertwined than any could imagine. I loved the pace and texture of this story. Slow, yes, but everything is there for a reason.
