Mr. Lethem gave me a story, the in and out, the rough pathways young Dylan Ebdus had to cross and endure being the lonely white boy in a black and hispanic neighborhood in the 1970s. He did ok, but some of his friends, and his mom and dad, suffered as well. Mr. Lethem gave me authentic characters, sympathetic characters. He gave Dylan some magical powers that enabled him to transcend his circumstances. How Dylan learns to use them is both cosmic and tragic.

Noir with a case of Tourette’s is the shape of Motherless Brooklyn in this novel that blends elements of detective fiction with deep character exploration and social commentary. It’s clever and compelling. The Tourette’s isn’t a gimmick, rather the central aspect of Lionel’s character and the lens in which he views the world. Lethem portrays Lionel’s struggles, highlighting his intelligence, determination and wit while exploring themes of identity, belonging and the search for meaning in a chaotic world. Motherless Brooklyn will linger in your mind long after you turn the last page.… (mais)

This book paints a very strange, surreal landscape of post-apocalyptic America. I loved the journey itself, and some parts had me twisting my mind. But the entire book I though I was being taken towards some sort of realization or explanation that never came, making it a bit of a disappointment.

Enjoyable but flawed in terms of the pacing, last section of the plot.
