A glowing heart and a compelling conclusion
An exceptional novel by an exceptional woman
History, emotion, passion, drama ... The bow of Chochana Boukhobza does wonders
A narrative spiced by snippets of Hebrew and Arabic, Yiddish and German . . . A vivid rendering of Jerusalem's complexities . . . Blends the structure of a race-against-time thriller with the lavish prose of a certain kind of literary novel
A nail-biting finale involves the entire ensemble, and the resolution is dramatic. Although The Third Day deals with some terrible memories, on the whole it is charming and entertaining.
Anyone with a passing interest in Jewish history would enjoy this book, although it does not shy from the horror
A story of retribution on both a personal and grand scale that is quite simply gripping to read
