"The Final Solution: A Story of Detection"
Reading history and reviews
Finished in 2007This is a very slim book which is described as a "novella" - I bought it in New Jersey earlier this year instead of the American edition of Black Swan Green. I'd read Chabon's full-sized novel The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay a few years ago and really enjoyed that, so I thought that I'd give this one a try.
I think that Chabon may be a fan of Sherlock Holmes and while I've never read any of the Holmes stories he manages to capture what I think the spirit of those stories must be. So although it was short, it wasn't too short - and I'm wondering now whether I should read some more of Chabon's work sometime soon.
