I enjoyed reading Davita's Harp. I found it very intriguing that Potok managed to interweave Communism, Picasso the Spanish Civil War and the warmth of Orthodox Judaism. However, I did not think it realistic that Anne, who had always despised Orthodox Judaism, suddenly turned to it after her husband died. I also thought it was interesting that Davita is the first, and until now the only, female protagonist in Potok's oeuvre. She is also the only one who is brought up by non religious parents, but turns to Orthodoxy on her own account. Besides all this I found it a warm and captivating novel that makes you think.

I loved reading about this girl of my era, so different from my WASP upbringing in many ways, but universal in her need for love, protection, understanding and affirmation. Yes, many of us have been "the best girl in the class," only to be ridiculed and shamed. Potok must be a genius in understanding the interior workings of adolescent females as well as males. Five stars

I have heard this book criticized because a male author is delving in to the mind a girl growing to adulthood up. They say that Ilana Davita does not ring true as a female character. I could not disagree more. So much about Ilana rings true. Much of her I recognize in myself. I too am the child of parents of strong ideology and had to find my own way. The cruel response of both teacher and classmates as she expressed her parents views about Stalin brought tears to my eyes. I recall a similar experience in my own life. It is a beautiful story of a girl longing for a feeling of belonging and finding it in Jewish faith. I recommend this book without reservation. Chaim Potok is a wonderful author, (he also wrote The Chosen which is my all time favorite book) and I think he created a believable, precocious, hurting girl who finds faith and healing and perseveres through hardship and injustice.

I have read all of Potok's works, but DAVITA'S HARP is definitely his best. Not, perhaps, in terms of technique (we begin to see a bit of repetition in the work) but in his ability to reach beyond his own personal story and into the world just beyond his own. A wonderful accomplishment for Potok as a writer, and a book that can be read over and over and never become stale.

A fine rendition of Jewish life in NY in the 1930s through the eyes of a young girl seeing her parents and their friends wrestle with events in Germany and the Spanish civil war.

Funny thing happend to me the other day. I was looking back on my high school years and remembered a book that I was "forced" to read. That book was Davita's Harp. I haven't picked that book up in years but to this day I remember how heartwarming and moving this novel was. Very few books from high school have remained as prized as this one. I think that in years to come, it will be a modern day classic. Not only is it good reading for liturature classes..but for causal reading as well. I put it right up there with Wild Swans by Jung Chang!

I can't even put into words how truly moved I was when reading "Davita's Harp." Truly the best work that I have read in a LONG time. This is a book that has deep meaning for everyone -- regardless of religious background (it goes so much deeper than that).

I think it's amazing how a man can write about the feelings of a grown-up girl. For me, that's the strength of the book.

Chaim Potok is back with a vengance in this book, again with his goal of knocking orthadox Judasim down. This book has a basic plot, a girl grows up, but he just throws the characters around. He could have done a much better job. And to add insult to injury (I'm orthadox), he adds a Reuven Malter to the scene, reminding us all of his better work, the chosen and the promise. If he wasn't in for revenge on his Jewish roots, Potok could be a good writer!
