Judas by Amos Oz

«Amos Oz narra en Judas las grandes preguntas y conflictos de la historia y de la religión en Oriente Próximo»Judas el regreso de Amos Oz a la novela género ue no había frecuentado desde Una historia de amor y oscuridad plantea una audaz y novedosa interpretación de la figura de Judas Iscariote en el contexto de una angustiosa y delicada historia de amor    En el invierno de 1959 el mundo del joven Shmu. I can t remember the last time spending so much time with a book and I m not done yet I m preparing for a serious die hard discussion coming up at my temple I ve listened to the audiobook have read the ebook and will get a copy of the physical book to examine soon too By the time my book club meets I ll have read this book 3 timesThe I research this book s topics themes and Amos Oz s personal political and religious point of views mixed with the realities that Israel was established a Jewish state in 1948 David Ben Gurion became Israel s first premierthe uncertain I become on my own views The time period in which Amos Oz set this story is worthy of discussion itself late 50 s to early 60 s The Arab Israeli conflict six Day War of 1967 was just around the corner It doesn t particularly take strenuous effort to read this book but where it can be fatiguing is in the grappling with the puzzling uestions addressed regarding betrayal theology anti Semitism Zionism religion history and the Israeli Palestinian conflict The humor and the personal Intimate side between the characters was a great balance when exploring Jewish Christian philosophy thoughts beliefs bigotry and debates The two uestions that most stand out for me from this novel are was the State of Israel in 1948 as a Jewish state a mistake And in the endwho was the traitor The three main characters Shmuel Ash Atalia Abrahanel Gershom Wald and 4th ghost character Shealtiel Abravaneleither young and reserved sensuous and mysterious old opinionated and outspoken a hero or a villain each of the characters as we slowly get to know them we come to learn their own personal struggle with violence with association to Israel The writing and storytelling are both eually wonderful informative complex and thought provoking Grab some tea and biscuits as there is an abundance throughout this story might as well join in and do not forget to feed your fishHowever don t think Bella is coming over to do your laundryNO VISITORS ALLOWED WHEN TAKING YOUR TURN TO READ THIS BOOK enjoy your solitude Shmuel sure tried For a girl who resisted reading this book for a long time Its probably the first book I ve read that has shaken my thinking about Israel in a long time I have a lot of respect for Amos Oz and the uestions he created with this novel

El Ash se viene abajo su novia lo abandona sus padres se arruinan y él se ve obligado a dejar sus estudios en la universidad En ese momento desesperado encuentra refugio y trabajo en una vieja casa de piedra de Jerusalén donde deberá hacer compañía y conversar con un anciano inválido y sarcástico A su llegada una atractiva mujer llamada Atalia advertirá a Shmuel de ue no se ena de ella; ese ha sido el mot. 35 Dense and cerebral A young man in Jerusalem abandons his thesis to take a position with a disabled intellectual recluse For rom board and a small stipend he agrees to speak listen and discuss nightly with Wald five hours a night Older than he is Wald s daughter in law provides the love interestThis is a brilliantly written book covers so much informative especially for this reader who little understands the ongoing Israeli and Arab struggles Not a book that called to me definitely not a uick read but immersive once picked back up teaches much Politics the difference in the Jewish and Christian perceptions of Jesus the role of Judas all discussed nightly by Wald and SchmuelAlso a novel about a young man trying to find his way Friendship love respect crush on an older woman and the seeking of knowledge The ending I found uite poignant

    This is the third outstanding work I’ve read by an Israeli in as many weeks and I find myself falling under a spell of admiration again for a culture that fights back against the worst aspects of itself interrogates itself relentlessly and creates humor around the morose recognition of man’s fallibility Into a novel describing three generations living together in Jerusalem in a small house Amos Oz weaves history religion pol
