2.0 out of 5 stars I never did find the Stolen Jew..., September 21, 2011
This review is from: Stolen Jew (Library of Modern Jewish Literature) (Paperback)
I was intrigued by the title of this book and the brief dustjacket blurbs, so I took it out of the library. I forced myself through about 100 pages, but finally gave up on it, which is something I rarely do. The author has a penchant for run-on sentences with nested commas, semicolons and parentheses which I don't have the patience to decode. Call me insensitive, but I found the characters far too angst ridden for me to want to spend my time with.
Mind you, I'm an avid reader and have breezed through other supposedly impenetrable books that others had pronounced as unreadable. This novel just failed to grab me and make me want to stick with it.
I am interested in novels dealing with Jewish identity, as my own has undergone many changes. I find the works of Steven Stern more to my taste along these lines.
