    I also enjoyed this novel and rejoiced at its winning the Hugo this year. That said, I was a bit miffed when I came to the end of the novel as it seemed quite unfinished. The story was nearing its end, but so much was left unsaid. Mark of a good novel? Well, yes. It is good to leave your readers wanting more. But I think there was a lot more and I hope that Mr. Chabon finishes or suplements it some day.

    Keep up the good work with this blog.
