What about vapid and back stabbing coworkers? How about pages of psychobabble not all from a psychologist? Hebrew? A literal and figurative golem? Faux political correctness? Debates about the Gaza strip? Clinically detailed descriptions of everything and everyone the main character ate? Could the author add that too? If you had the second reaction then you are in luck This book offers all of that and I had the first reaction just too much going on for effective development Many thanks to NetGalley for the ARC in exchange for an honest review
