Tamar Katriel examines the organization of guides and modes of storytelling present in Israeli settlement museums. The topic itself is interesting and dives into the social-cultural, ideological, linguistic, dialectical and generational means though which museum guides present a Zionist narrative. Focused on two specific museums the book is an ethnography of how museum guides position themselves and their audiences vis-a-vis the dominating museum story.
Although the topic is interesting, the book remains a bit dry and not engaging. It is at moments very repetitive and has a slightly unclear structure which prevents a fluid, clear argument.
I would recommend this book for those conducting research either on museums or on Zionist narratives, but it is not a great book for "fun" or "pleasure" reading.
