Ha! It is my lucky day. I'm good at duels.

I do plan to re read it in light of your post. Of course my reaction to your post was inadequate but I need to reread before I can explain why I loved it so much. I've read other Chabon and didn't enjoy anything as much as K and C. The fact that I need to 're read prob indicates I read it quite fast- which I do when I am sucked in by a book but does limit my critical faculties...

kavaleir and clay won a damn pulitzer so clearly alot of people liked it a lot. I didn't hate either but it seemed weak for a Pulitzer prize winning book.

Longitude by Dava Sobel - 8/10

For what seems on the surface like such a boring topic (old boats) I found this book really fascinating!

I got to see some of those clocks in the Greenwich Maritime museum which was amazing too.
