between the urgent ambitions of a mother who knows what t takes to survive and a son straining against the responsibilities of the old world even as he s endowed with the freedoms of the The Lion Seeker35 starsThis s an engaging historical NOVEL AND GIVEN THE UALITY OF and given the uality of and characterization I can see Bonert going on to write excellent literary novels n the future This one falls short of Aagay Sumandar Hai / آگے سمندر ہے its ambitious goals butt s still worth a readThe Lion Seeker follows a young man named Isaac a Jewish refugee from Lithuania growing up working class Making Him Sweat (Wilinski's, in South African the 1930s Numerous threads follow various aspects of Isaac s life his complicated family his romance with a rich girl his work this last The Great Divergence: China, Europe, and the Making of the Modern World Economy is a surprisingly large part of the book as Isaacs pulled between his own desire to work on cars encouraged by his craftsman father and his mother s urging that he make as much money as craftsman father and his mother s urging that he make as much money as by fair means or foul The social situation of the day also ntrudes both n ways that make Isaac s blood boil anti Semitism and ways he refuses to acknowledge oppression of black South AfricansAll these threads are woven together n an engaging way The style meanwhile s on the literary side and takes a little getting used to uotation marks are not used and there s a lot of South African slang It s all easy enough to understand f you roll with t and the local language lends vibrancy to the text The characterization meanwhile Library Wars: Love and War 10 is very strong Isaacs a prick selfish none too bright easily moved to anger and violence but drawn so believably that rather than spending time disliking him I was engaged n seeing how his life would play out By drawing readers nto Isaac s life Bonert does a great job of creating empathy for him without trying to convince us to like himMy biggest Crossing Boarders issue with the books the way t falls apart towards the end Isaac does something awful though understandable given the hundreds of pages we ve read before and then the book mostly peters out He joins the army which we don t see but which s perhaps meant as some sort of atonement and then he returns home and still The Outcast Highlander is not particularly remorseful and finally the book ends with little sense of any thematic arcs coming to a close I was left wondering about the point of many ofts threads especially the romance which was always the least believable aspect of the book though at least t ends believably What s this book ultimately about It s hard to say And for such an ambitious novel that Baiae is anssueI ll also add even for folks who don t think of themselves as sensitive readers that the book Celebrity, Inc.: How Famous People Make Money includes a couple of particularly horrific death by torture descriptions Honestly they re so gruesome I m not even sure I find them believable It seems like there s so much of this out there now that authors feel they have to outdo all other authors for such scenes to have anmpactUltimately I did enjoy this book and for In Den Nachmittag Geflüstert Gedichte 1909 1914 immersionn a time and place and Reid Alleje 2 in the life of a flawed protagonistt s excellent I look forward to seeing what Bonert writes next Not the easiest book to read It s over 500 pages with strong character development The story revolves around the anointed son of a Jewish La

novel andt Flight or Fight is one of the most perhaps the most wildly ambitious piece of fiction I have ever read It s deep It s about good and evil and sin and forgivenessn such a deep and honest way The main character Vlad III Dracula: The Life and Times of the Historical Dracula is deeply flawed and yet I loved him That fact alone gave the whole work a tenderness vulnerability uestioning genuineness and humanity Butt was a tough gritty book as well I haven t read a book Divided like Destiny in a long time that had me on the edge of my chair and that I simply could not put down Plust s profoundly Burden and Prayer interesting historically It s the story of a Lithuanian Jewish family who leave Lithuania prior to World War I and go to Johannesburg If you think aboutt our view point now Where's Ringo? is very post Holocaust andn my case Western and also USer The characters The Cat Club in this book have a very different view point It s alsonteresting to see the relationship between whites Jews and blacks nuanced and compassionate I can t recommend this highly enough I wish I could congratulate the author Yo Quiero Decir Sunburn in person I put this book up there with Th.
