"I loved this post World War II tale of antisemitism on the upper East Side of New York City. The characters are beautifully defined, the plot engaging, and the descriptions of the era are spot on. I stayed up way into the night to finish this great novel."

"In Spinning Silver, Naomi Novik has a beautiful recreation of a story that at its core holds Rumplestiltskin, but with its many voices from different classes and walks of life, contains something new. The magic in this story is beautifully done and adeptly walks the line of belief. This book is sure to delight fans of Katherine Arden and continues wonderfully on the ideas brought forward by Uprooted. It has one of the most satisfying endings I've read in a while, adeptly bringing together the competing desires of the characters, all of whom you as reader are hoping will achieve their goals."
