Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Anyone who finds it is finding a jewel. Its themes are profound and universal."

THE WALL STREET JOURNAL

It is the now-classic story of two fathers and two sons and the pressures on all of them to pursue the religion they share in the way that is best suited to each. And as the boys grow into young men, they discover in the other a lost spiritual brother, and a link to an unexplored world that neither had ever considered before. In effect, they exchange places, and find the peace that neither will ever retreat from again....

Synopsis:

The story of the friendship that develops between two Jewish boys in New York City.

Perfect. I did not think I would like this book, and it became my obsession. This book is compelling, smart, and presents an intuitive and very real picture of a friendship. If you feel like you have had profound friendships, this book may affect you in a similar way.

I read this book onced every couple of years, and I'm always enthralled. Between well-developed characters, an incredible wealth of cultural geography, and an engaging plot, it's an amazing read.

I really enjoyed this book because not only was it interesting and historical; you could learn from it. I enjoy all books written by Chaim Potok.
