Jonathan Kellerman and his son Jesse Kellerman have already distinguished themselves as ace storytellers, but they’ve outdone themselves with this genre-bending, wn epic. a rare and original novel, one that upsets and transcends expectations and manages to surprise more often than one has the right to reasonably expect in a work of fiction. 3 people found this helpful.

Combining the procedural structure of Jonathan Kellerman's Alex Delaware novels with the character-driven plotting of son Jesse's fiction, the novel is a solidly plotted thriller that takes its compelling lead character, Detective Lev, deep into some Old World mysteries. more complex and deeper book than I have read from either author.

I love magical realism, so this book is "right up my alley", so to speak. The low reviews here make me sad, but I suppose they are written by readers who wanted an LA Whodunnit, rather than an exploration of dimensions of and purity of the soul. This is no ordinary "murder mystery". Fans of Dara Horn (The World to Come) will enjoy this book immensely, as I did. I loved the symbolic "clues" left throughout the book.

This story is a beautiful, intriguing exploration of the concept of Gilgul, the wheel-like cycle of souls. It is so much fun, and so fulfilling to read a fiction bestseller that dares to play with the assumptions we make about life!

SPOILER ALERT (a few details that felt like hints to me ): I was drawn in immediately by Asham, whose name is the ritual sacrifice made for accidental/unpremeditated transgressions. Asham/אשם = Guilty. (Her name foretold her fate, but the narrative makes it clear that it is she alone who sealed it.) I grew suspicious the instant Jacob read his mother's gravestone and her Hebrew name was פרל, "Pearl/Perel". I don't know why, but I knew it was significant...names being what they are. The beetle/cockroach is a wonderful nod to Kafka, but much more powerfully, a symbol of the Judahite Monarchy. I love the use of the number 36, including Lev's name,(the protagonist family's American surname LeV; לב; 36, Lamed Vav). I loved the use of 613, and so many.numbers and symbols that inspire me to contemplate possibilities on what we are, and why we are: Gan Eden, Olam HaZeh vs. Olam haBa; Gehinom...FASCINATING!

Golem of Paris, here I come.

Perhaps there's a bit too much thrown into this mix, but I loved it. It's a combination of genres, so if you're expecting to read a mystery, police procedural, fantasy, historical novel, reincarnation or even a love story, you may be disconcerted by the combination of all these elements. If you are not Jewish or have no knowledge of Eastern European Judaism, you may be bored. I think this book would appeal mostly to Jews of Eastern European descent who know a lot of the folk tales and religious rituals (whether they practice them or not). The Golem of the title is a sort of Frankenstein, made of mud by a rabbi who lived in a ghetto hundreds of years ago. His intention was to protect the inhabitants of his town. But the authors give far more of a backstory to the creature, going all the way back to Adam and Eve, and a follow-up which moves into the present day. In the present: an alcoholic detective who battles depression and has fallen from his Jewish roots is assigned to a covert unit and told to investigate a bizarre murder. He encounters a very mysterious woman and an assortment of enigmatic coworkers, reunites somewhat with his father, a devout Jew who is regarded as practically a saint, and learns some shocking, almost unbelievable, things about himself and his family. There's a sequel, which I'm eager to read. I think this is a terrific book, but intended for a narrow audience.

Though I’d read every book by Jonathan Kellerman, this is the first time I’ve tried reading a novel co-authored with his son, Jesse.
THE GOLEM OF HOLLYWOOD weaves two stories into one, bringing them together at the very end, a writing technique that worked well in Jonathan Kellerman’s latest novel, THE MURDERER’S DAUGHTER.

The first story is a familiar one—an LAPD detective solving a crime.

The second took me completely by surprise: it merges religion with myth and fantasy, while creating settings and characters so real, the fictive dream is never once shaken from its spellbinding splendor. That is until the rather abrupt switch back to story number one.

In the end, it all makes sense and blends together beautifully, but until then, the back and forth between stories is a bit tiring.
Jonathan and Jesse Kellerman write with quality of prose that is enticing, brilliant, and captivating—an art form in and of itself.

I’d love to know who wrote what, but I suppose the fact that there is no way of telling is a testimony to the effectiveness of this father-son writing team.

I recommend THE GOLEM OF HOLLYWOOD to any lover of Jesse or Jonathan Kellerman, historical fiction, detective novels, or superb writing of any genre.

I thought this book was fabulous. I had read THE GOLEM OF PRAGUE first and was unclear about some points. However this book, which I should have read first, cleared up most of them.
I didn't find it at all confusing, I loved the way he interspersed the story of Mia in between the story of the hunt for the serial killers.
The only criticisms I might have would be that I never got a complete picture of who the tall cops were, were they half angels? Also I don't know why they wanted to kill Mia. The inner story didn't tell why the Maharal was "given permission" to create the golem and why he had to give him up. I am gathering that the golem's soul was for penance for what she did at Tower of Babel.
Also I am unclear about Sam Lev's true roll, other than the obvious one of being the main character's father. In the story he knew the tall cops, but it never explained why. Was he the reincarnat of the Maharal? And was Bina the reincarnat of the Maharal's wife?
And then there is the question of why Mia was obsessed with the main character? What drew her to him? The explanation about the beetle explained the obsession but not the initial attraction. I missed that answers somehow.
However, despite these lingering questions, which might be my failing, I loved both of the Golem books and I hope Kellerman writes more in that series. I will definitely follow them and maybe along the way, get the answeres to my questions.

I have always enjoyed The Kellerman novels but I did not care for this one. The back and forth
story line with the Jewish historical data was hard to understand and boring.. The main story line
was like a back and forth reviewing and breaking down facts but as a story there was nothing there.Sorry but
I would not recommend it.
