What the Critics Say

"Golem Song is such a wonderful book because it challenges the reader's assumptions and way of thinking about people and their minds. One can't help but develop a love/hate relationship with Alan Krieger. Love him because of his wit; hate him for who he is." (Vermont Today)
"Estrin's abrasive antihero's commitment to battling false messiahs is morbidly compelling, and his logorrhea is occasionally dazzling. As Estrin raises a host of tough moral questions...and tinkers with the story of the golem, his mind-bending humor is at once intellectual and ribald." (Booklist)

    I'm trying to wean myself and learn to function without earbuds for more than ten minutes at a time. It hasn't been easy. I lose balance...

    "egad."

    I want to read this book, the idea sounds fantastic, but as an audiobook I have started and restarted six times and can't get past the author's lackluster style. I'm pretty easy to please, and have been ill - so I'll listen to just about anything. Yet this I cannot do for Golem Song. I'd say, let it pass and try it in print. If I do, I'll come back and let you know how it goes.
