May 15, 2012 Nadine rated it really liked it  ·  review of another edition
Although a bit confusing at times (this is not a context I am very familiar with) I loved it. A young Jewish man, estranged from his father before he dies, misinterprets his father's wishes, ends up being brain-washed by extremist Jews fighting for Israel in the heart of Brooklyn. The book shows how easy it is to exploit someone who is in sorrow and pain.
Lovely reading by John Greenman, with very accurate expressions mirrored in his voice.
