This review is from: The Finkler Question (Paperback)OK if you ARE Jewish, this book will probably be a real hoot. I'm not & much as I enjoy moderate doses of the type of Jewish angst you find in Woody Allen movies, this proved too much. Much too much. Page after page after page of self obsessing & paranoia about what it means to be Jewish, in a novel which really has no plot to speak of.
I was repeatedly reminded of the Christopher Hitchens quote; "Take the risk of thinking for yourself, much more happiness, truth, beauty, and wisdom will come to you that way"
