review 1: I found this book very bizarre. It was my first Amos oz book, and though I would still like to read a novel or two of his, I never really got into this book. I found the characters and the general overlay of the story very depressing and not realistic. Oz created this overly dram...

review 1: As someone else said in their review, this is an elegant little book. It is a series of stories with many of the same characters shared throughout. It is not fraught with emotion and drama but tells simple stories about lives in flux. Although there is sadness and death and fr...

review 1: Gotta admit this book was not easy for me to read. Not my cup of tea. I found it a bit like being given a loaf of bread to eat with no water. That being said that by no means is a good acurate review of this book. I'm sure others who love language and love words would very much f...

review 1: While described as a novel, I'd say a collection of short stories with the same setting is more accurate as there seemed to be no central conflict. In the beginning, the small town seems quaint, but each short story reveals how twisted the things and people in town are. I was of...

review 1: Хареса ми книгата на Амос Оз "Между приятели". Интересен е форматът - отделни разкази, но героите в тях са все "от кибуца" и всъщност те всички са свързани. Развива образите от различни перспективи, ту като главни, ту като второстепенни герои в зависимост от гледната точка. Започ...

review 1: Amos Oz is perhaps the best author of our time! He writes real literature, this is art in its finest form, his sentences are full of meaning ... After reading I felt as if all my senses were satisfied, I felt as if I was there with the characters, like I really got to know them, ...

review 1: This was the first book by Amos Oz I ever read. Had heard lots of good things about his writing,and after reading it I can undersand why.This is a story about kibbutz-life in Israel. It is told from several persons point of view, focusing in one part especially on some characters...

review 1: Honestly, I didn't like at all this book. The way the chapters were distributed was just rude to the readers. It's incredibly distracting to put thirty three chapters in one hundred and eighteen pages. Also, I felt the writing style was foul. In the ideas that were important, the...

review 1: Comprei o livro após ler o maravilhoso (e forte) A Caixa Preta do autor. Classificado como infanto juvenil é uma espécie de fábula tratando de um tema meio em voga, o bullying, que sempre existiu mas com um nome mais brasileiro. É legalzinho mas faltou encanto, fantasia e carisma...

review 1: This is a rather unusual book. The intent seems to be fable-like with an underlying moral, but for me it came off as mostly a rather sad, depressing book. However, the writing is beautiful and credit needs to be given to both the author and the translator for that. I doubt tho...
