The book is great on a variety of levels. It is an intriguing and accurate historical account of the lives of Jews in another period of history during which they were ostracized and tormented. But aside from recounting history quite accurately the book soars to great literary heights. Mayer is an accomplished wordsmith and his descriptions of people, places and events take this book to a higher literary level.
The book is sweeping, panoramic, insightful and majestic. You don't have to be Jewish to enjoy this literary masterpiece. It's right up there with great American novels.
I can't believe that this great book is not on the bestseller list!
