    Man legt dieses Buch erschöpft aus der Hand, völlig erschöpft und ebenso
    sicher, dass kein Buch dieses Frühjahrs es mit Zeruya Shalevs Meisterwerk
    wird aufnehmen können.

    Phenomenal book,...an emotional ride :meghajolo :meghajolo :meghajolo, the first one is amongst my mental top of books!
    Zeruya Shalev is very intense reading.
    Her language is hauntingly, painfully lyrical, and her understanding of the conflicted human yearning for connection and solitude astounds.

    ...she seems to admire Thomas Bernhard in terms of punctuation and length of sentences

    ------------------------------------
    every woman should read this book, finally a woman writer, about 21. century's woman issues... it is so deep, it turns your inside (your soul) out...makes you a stronger person....very emotional, soul cleansing experience!
    A place where few of us have the courage to go, even with our inner-most thoughts. Shockingly painful truths from beginning to end...there is not much of a storyline...but the poetic inner-dialoge of the characters is very powerful.
    The questionable piety of the saint/martyr, the tyranny of love, the balance of sin. Sure, it's all presented under the guise of a marriage badly in need of counseling, but Na'ama and Udigi's woes speak to so much more than typical family dysfunction. When a Tibetan healer asks Na'ama what she enjoys, the glib narrator is at a loss. "It has been so long," she thinks, since she has even considered her feelings, always pushing Udigi and daughter Noga ahead of her own concerns in a misguided attempt at conciliation. In living through her husband and child (and yet constantly second-guessing their decisions), Na'ama has lost track of herself.
    An insightful story of human foibles.
    Just as in life, there are no universal truths. One reading may send you to the right (Udi's relentless selfishness ruined things from the start), the next reading to the left (Na'ama is too apt to stew in guilt instead of confronting her problems). It's incredibly refreshing to draw the conclusions on our own... :meghajolo
    No goodies, no baddies, just life as it is, and rendered subtly convincing.
