Disobedience is Naomi Alderman's richly told, endearingly evocative tale of two women and the choices they make as they come to terms with their identities in a traditional Orthodox Jewish community. In this groundbreaking debut, Alderman puts her characters to work, forcing them to confront issues of rebellion, isolation, loneliness and self-acceptance in a place where deviating from the norm often results in cold stares and hushed whispers at the kosher butcher shop.

Ronit Krushka is a lapsed Orthodox Jew, who fled the confines of Hendon, England, and her traditional upbringing for a secular lifestyle on Manhattan's Upper West Side. When her father, the community's revered Rabbi passes away, Ronit returns home to retrieve her mother's precious Shabbat candlesticks, and to revisit her troubled past. She reconnects with Esti, a former lover, whose choices have left her unsure and unfulfilled. As Ronit and Esti navigate through the demons of their past, each woman is forced to decide what kind of life she wants to lead, and with whom she wants to share it.

Alderman alternates between a lyrical and familiar style, introducing each chapter with a page of religious commentary that relates directly to the novel. While the commentary is interesting, readers may find themselves skimming it as the plot thickens and these introductions become more like diversions from the story's main message. Still, interruptions aside, Disobedience marks an important debut, and one that extends outside the lives of these characters to personify the struggle between conformity and individualism for everyone who has felt like an outsider. --Gisele Toueg -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

5.0 von 5 Sternen well worth reading 22. Januar 2010
I loved the book. As someone not familiar with orthodox jewish every day life I found it fascinating. The conflicts between religion, love, duty, peer pressure that many of us face during our lives are described wonderfully in the context of an orthodox jewish upbringing.The torah references are interesting, the way the stories and day to day life of the characters play off one another very well executed.

A phrase in the book stating that being jewish and being gay are very similar, you are born that way and you stay that way, but you can choose how much you want demonstrate it to the outside world, reminded me of a friend who described his being born jewish as a heavy burden, his to carry forever. In Israel a young man told me that keeping the traditions alive is the only way to keep the Jewish identity alive, for this reason he when he has a family he will honor traditional values. I half a year working in Israel.

Disobedience gave me insight into a way of life very foreign to my own and added depth to the statements I have heard from secular jews all over the world. Reading it helped me gain a three dimensional understanding of something that wasn't accessible to me before.

2.0 von 5 Sternen On kosher writing 9. Juli 2008
Von Ana Lisa
Disobedience is a novel of promising and appealing subject matter. First of all it should deal with issues of religion, tradition, grief and lesbianism.

Ronit tries to escape her past and childhood spent in the rigid Orthodox Jewish community in London. She lives in New York, works in finance, has an affair with a married man and is obsessed by talking and analyzing.

When her father dies, she comes back to London to discover that her cousin married her childhood sweetheart and the best friend Esti who lives in a sort of silent contemplation and a deep self-denial.

Unfortunately the characters lack the depth, even though Alderman proves herself a talented writer. The characters are one-dimensional and their development is lost in detailed descriptions of Jewish traditions. The second half of the novel ends up as a predictable and thus a disappointing read.

Nonetheless there are certain parts such as beginning of each chapter by a biblical reference which are interestingly constructed.

Hopefully in her next novel, Alderman would achieve her full potential of a skillful and attentive writer.

4.0 von 5 Sternen The clash between modernity and orthodoxy 15. September 2006
Von Kevin Holtsberry - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
As a person who is interested in the role of faith in the modern world, I found Disobedience to be a captivating and thought provoking story. In chronicling the clash between these two worlds - Ronit's modern one full of unlimited choices and Esti's constrained world of tradition and rules - Alderman refuses to present an easy solution. Instead she uses each women's experiences and perspectives to highlight the tensions involved. She is not afraid to point out the flaws and repercussions of orthodox Judaism but she also paints a loving - to me - portrait of its wisdom. In the same way, she doesn't simply celebrate modernity as a perfect world of choice and freedom.

As a result Disobedience is not just a thought provoking look inside a devout and closed world, it is also a timeless story about living with the consequences of our choices.

Alderman is clearly a talented writer and her portrait of the London Orthodox Community reflects this, but her characterization is a little thin in places. Ronit can come off as simply a caricature at times (busy, successful women whose love life is a mess, etc.) and her rebellion can seem a bit cliche as well. But it is in the contrast between her and Esti that the book gets its impact. It is also worth noting that the perspective you bring to the book is likely to have an impact on how you view the characters. Those sympathetic to orthodoxy or tradition will react differently to those with a more libertarian or libertine perspective. This is another reason I found it so interesting.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Great talent with great promise... 29. August 2006
Von DevJohn01 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
There were many elements to Naomi Alderman's debut novel that I very much enjoyed. Her prose was great, she writes like a veteran whose been doing it for years. I loved how she switched view points throughout the novel so that the reader got a glimpse into the minds of each character. Lastly, I enjoyed how she began each chapter with a thought provoking biblical reference and explanation that was either very relevant to people of all religions or gave the reader insight into the Jewish religion. All of these ingredients came together to make Naomi Alderman an author that I will look out for in the future. However, amongst all this praise there is a downside. 'Disobedience' failed to catch me right away and, in my opinion, in a short novel the story should hook you in the beginning. Also, again, in my opinion, Alderman didn't give the characters enough depth for the reader to really understand what motivated them. I am sure that as a new author Alderman will suss out these flaws and grow with time and I look forward to watching her progress.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A clash of cultures, both of which are flawed 27. Mai 2007
Von Jonathan Groner - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This novel is the story of Ronit Krushka, the rebellious 32-year-old daughter of an Orthodox rabbi in Hendon, an insular Jewish neighborhood in London. The death of Ronit's father forces her to come home for a short time from New York and from her nonobservant life style, and it forces her to confront her past and decide exactly who she is and who she wants to be.

Alderman, who grew up in Hendon, succeeds in portraying both the fervently religious lifestyle and the secular lifestyle without exaggerating or caricaturing either. Hendon can be stifling, but it can also enfold its inhabitants in a warm embrace, and for Ronit it is home. New York City is exciting, free, and tolerant, but city dwellers lack roots and lack a firm basis in ethics and morality. (Ronit is the only one of her circle of friends who knows what's in the Ten Commandments!) At the end of the novel, all the main characters seem to be moving away from either extreme and making their peace with a life replete with contradictions.

Another theme is silence and speech. British Jews are doubly silent -- both because they are far more insecure in their place in society than American Jews, and because they are, after all, British and keep a stiff upper lip. Ronit's father was a master of silence, yet in an important lecture, he points out that God created the world with speech. Yet speech, in the form of lashon ha-ra (the Jewish concept of slander or gossip) can be terribly harmful.

Ronit's New York world is a noisy, speech-filled world, yet much of the speech is meaningless or harmful. Esti, Ronit's former lover, is always quiet, so much so that she is considered odd even in the Hendon synagogue. The denouement of the book is a reconciliation of the ideals of speech and of speechlessness.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Loved every word, start to finish. 10. September 2014
Von Mary R. Russell - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Amazon seems to have sent this to me by accident. I didn't order it and was inclined to put it aside, but gave it a chance on a whim. I am a writer myself (Mary Doria Russell). Producing six novels has made me a cranky, snarky, picky reader, so I didn't expect to get past the first page. To my delight, I loved every word. No backseat driving, no second-guessing the author, just "This is so good," from start to finish.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Ultimately, moving and insightful 25. Juni 2007
Von algo41 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Two childhood friends/lovers: one comes to terms with an Orthodox Jewish community which is rigid in its views, one rebels against it. The novel has its limitations, but ultimately succeeds in being moving and insightful. While Alderman does not paint a very nice or balanced picture of the community at large, she clearly appreciates the positives in the Orthodox Jewish tradition. She is also able to make meaningful a marriage in which the physical aspect is lacking. The rebel is a flawed character who still retains our sympathy and interest, although we need to dismiss as the author's error one incident: where the rebel is almost ready to "rat" on her friend just to get back at her chief antagonist in the community, and never seems to acknowledge the evil of such a deed. I found the rebel's vindictive streak refreshing, not normally found in a work of this type.

Alderman fails, in my view, in her introductory chapters on the rebel's life in New York. Even the prose in those chapters is frequently not up to par, and the emphasis on the relationship with her married lover is there for lack of something better .
