5.0 von 5 Sternen well worth reading
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...

Disobedience is a novel of promising and appealing subject matter. First of all it should deal with issues of religion, tradition, grief and lesbianism.

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
Rezension bezieht sich auf: Disobedience (Taschenbuch)
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.
