Bu kitabı okuduğumun ortasında, kocaman bir örümcek çantamda kamp kurmaya çalıştı ve telefonumu ondan aldığımda elime atladı. Bir şey ifade etmeli!
Gerçekten büyüleyici karakterizasyon. Sanatın hem olumlu hem de olumsuz sonuçları hakkında çok düşünmeme izin verdi. Ayrıca Hasid Yahudiliğine büyük bir bakış. Kesinlikle daha fazla Potok okuyacak.
Neuroscientists say that powerful experiences, both positive and negative, imprint in our brains; often in the form of images. I have a memory of myself sitting in the rocking chair in my room in Lithonia, GA, finishing this book...crying; deeply moved and deeply saddened. As I recall (been a long time since the 7th grade) it is the fictionalized account of Hemingway's experiences as a medic with the Italian Army during the First World War...that could be way off, but I'm sure I'm close, and the fact that I remember that much from having read it in the 7th grade should say something (about the book for sure, but perhaps about me as well). I am curious to reread it as an adult, especially after my experiences with working with soldiers and veterans. It does not surprise me that the work I do now moves me in the same way this book did in the 7th grade.
Coming of age story of a young girl who is interested in fighting death-- which separates her from many of her peers. The story of Typhoid Mary is interwoven.
