What a nice change of pace this book provides. It reads like fiction but purports to be true. The only shortcoming is that, like all true stories, there is no neat ending, so the listener is left wanting to know more about what happened to these people. The book is as interesting as the title.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
The story was great but each event, thought, or experience was retold without - who, what, when, where, &/or how.
What could Rebecca Dana have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
A possibly marvelous story would have made the grade if the 5 questions above were written into the story.
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
The characters and setting were almost interesting. If only reasons, background, history, or internal dialog were included. This book could have been so much more than it was. I was very disappointed
Any additional comments?
Chasidic Crown Heights is so different, interesting, and rife with stories and history I wanted this book to be more than it was. The storyteller was, for me, just the person to fill in all the blanks. Her non-observant Jewish background would have really been ideal for this but, I guess, it would have been a ten book tome rather than a single book.
