My grandparents arrived in Palestine at the same time and went through the difficulties that Tevya and his family went through.
I did NOT have any problem with all the Yiddish words peppered through the book, however, I am sure many of my friends had their eyes glazed over, trying to understand Tevye's thoughts.
I know from personal history that the writer has done fantastic research.
I was unable to finish this book.
This book was very well written. It was not at all the writing that forced me to stop reading.
I went into the book with excitement and unrealistic expectations. I love the musical Fiddler on the Roof. I have never read the books by Sholom Aleichem. I think if I had then this book would have had more appeal.The characters in the book didn't live up to my expectations of the characters in the play/movie. There were traces of them. Tevya still wishes he was a rich man, still talks to God, and still is devoutly religious. But, I didn't feel the essence of the Tevya I had expected from the movie.
The book also focused less on the characters and more on the lifestyle issues they were facing with the new socialism they were living with. It just wasn't very entertaining and the issues it addressed (while certainly important to many people) were not really interesting to me.
If you are a fan of Fiddler on the Roof then this may not be the book for you. But, it may just be the perfect book for a more intellectual crowd.
Review by Jane B Night author of Educating Autumn
Bard has done a superb job of weaving the story of Tevye into an epic tale of the Jews in the first half of the 20th century.
His grasp of history and his ability to tell a story combine to make this book a must read.
Bard has been able to write many wonderful books through the years, but with this volume he has really hit a home run!
In the course of conversation, the book conveys much of the history of the Jewish state, the conflicts among the various factions, and the impact of events on a very personal level. Tevye's belief in the goodness of mankind and his knowledge of the Book help to create a very rich character, who with many members of his immediate family, becomes central to the creation of the Jewish state. The depth of character development help you feel his transition from a relatively youthful man to an older man who sets out to accomplish certain goals by the end of his days. You can feel his joys and sorrows, of which there are many, to the point of tears.
This is a very well-written fast read - in fact, I was sad to see that I had reached the last page.
