Recommended to K.D. by: 1001 Books You Must Read Before You Die (2008-2012)
By far, the best book that I've read this year.

It is a long one but worth all the time I spent on it. It is a memoir that begins with Amos Oz (born 1939) birth in Israel and ends with the death of his father. His mother died twenty years earlier than that and in between those two deaths he did not hear from his father anything about his mother; as if his mother did not exist. This novel can be appreciated on three layers: from the macro perspective, it is a tale of Israel as a nation, from the e

"أكلنا تفاحة مسمومة" عاموس عوز قصة عن الحب و الظلام
بهذه العبارة المقتبسة من الرواية ذاتها افتتح مراجعتي,فهي تجسد بشكل كبير إحساسي بعد إتمام قراءتها بجهد لا يضاهيه الا جهد غواص يحاول تحطيم رقم قياسي للغوص,عاموس عوز قدم لنا في روايته هذه تفاحة تقطر سما زعافا قد ينسف كل معتقداتنا و ثقافة نفي لكل ما يأتي من هذا الطحلب العالق بمؤخراتنا ويكبر يوما بعد يوم و إن لم نلفظ هذه التفاحة الملعونة فورا و بمجرد الانتهاء من الرواية فان في خطر زرع نبتة قد تكون ثمارها سرطانا يأكلنا ببطء.

There are books which, after you've read them, would give you this silent thought either that you could have written them yourself or maybe you could write something like them too someday. Then there are those books which would have the opposite effect, similar to what happened to Virginia Woolf after reading Marcel Proust's "Swann's Way" (the first book of "In Search of Lost Time")--her literary urges were paralyzed ("Well," Woolf wrote a friend, "--what remains to be written after that?

"قصة عن الحب والظلام" للكاتب الاسرائيلي عاموس عوز ترجمة جميل غنايم.قرأت"هذه الرواية الأسبوع الفائت وحركت بداخلي الكثير من المشاعر المتناقضة...لماذا متناقضة؟ لأنني أحببت أسلوب الكاتب الروائي وأعجبت باحترافيته من حيث الكتابة والثقافة، ولكنني بالمقابل اشمأزيت من تحريفه التاريخي والسياسي للأحداث.
وسأقوم بتقييم للرواية ضمن ثلاث محاور:
-البنية الأدبية والروائية.
-التحليل النفسي للكاتب لجهة اعتبار هذه الرواية بمثابة سيرة ذاتية
-الجانب السياسي والتاريخي للرواية.

البنية الروائية: على الرغم من أن الكاتب بالغ ف

Amos Oz je najveći živi izraelski književnik... Upoznali smo se dok je pisao ovaj autobiografski roman... Bila sam mu urednik... Imala sam zadovoljstvo da se nekoliko puta sretnemo i razgovaramo... Davno sam za RTS obezbedila intervju s njim i to je bilo divno iskustvo... Nažalost nisam uspela da ga dovedem u Srbiju iako mi je to obećao... Ja se još uvek nadam da će se to realizovati jednoga dana... Kao što verujem da će jednoga dana Amos dobiti Nobelovu nagradu za književnost, zaslužio je... A ...more

Recommends it for: those interested in the Middle East
This memoir recounts the author's life in the formative years of the nation of Israel as well as the years leading up to 1948, as well as the lives of his parents and many relatives from various parts of Europe. It's not only the memoir of a child who grew to become a writer and needs to tell of the terrors and memories of his childhood. It's also a memoir of the young state peopled by so many from all over who had lost everything and were desperately trying to build a permanent Jewish home. No ...more

لم أتردد في منحها النجمات الخمس! وحتى في تلك اللحظات المتباينة التي شعرتُ فيها بالحنق الشديد, لم أفكر في سلبها نجمة على الإطلاق..!
فالرجل هنا- وأعني الكاتب والروائي عاموس عوز- يتصرّف بطبيعته الصهيونية الموغلة في القِدم والصارخة أيضاً.. لا مجال لمفاوضة المسألة هنا ألبتة.. بل قطعاً لم أتوقع أن تكون صهيونته بهذا التجلّي الواضح.

ربما استحقتْ تلك المحاولة للمخاتلة -والتي كشفتها سيرته الذاتية على لسان الطفل المستتر خلفه كهلٌ ستينيّ-أن تأخذ النجمات الخمس.. فلست أحبذ تلك البكائيات الزائفة ولا الكليشيهات ا

It is a crime to try to rush through this richly textured memoir, you have to slow down, you have to savour it and let its images sink in, you have to see, through the eyes of the alien only child that was Amos Oz, the strange melange of old world jews bickering and conjuring up an extraordinary new, yet ancient country, ripping it out of an existing land, dreams centuries old and a great many nightmares of the first half of the twentieth century. It is excruciatingly and painfully honest, bindi ...more

God there is some good writing in this. I'm obsessed with everything that's said in this description:

"In Jerusalem people always walked rather like mourners at a funeral, or latecomers at a concert. First they put down the tip of their shoe and tested the ground. Then once they had lowered their foot they were in no hurry to move it; we had waited two thousand years to gain a foothold in Jerusalem, and were unwilling to give it up. If we picked up our foot someone else might come along and snatc

تقييم عمل روائي كهذا بالتأكيد مهمة صعبة .. بين روعة الكتابة ومحتوى الرواية سيل من المتناقضات هو ما شعرت به .. حلقت عالياً "غالباً" ولكن السقطة بعد ذلك تكون قوية .. "أحياناً" أود أن أمنحها خمس نجوم وبعد ذلك أرى للنجمة الواحدة (التي تعني أنها لم تعجبني) بريق لا تستحقه الرواية .. أقرر أن أكون حيادية ولكن كيف ذلك والرواية تتكلم عن "خط أحمر" في قناعاتي

يروي لنا "عاموز عوز" في هذه الرواية ذكرياته وتاريخ أسرته من الجانبين قبل الهجرة لفلسطين .. عاصر الكاتب فترة الانتداب البريطاني على فلسطين وإعلان قيام

سيرة حب عوز وظلامه كتاب غنيّ بالحياة و الأدب والسياسة والتاريخ والجغرافيا، سيرة تُروى من وجهة نظر صهيوني مخلص لانتمائه لهذا الكيان المستحدث بأرض فلسطين، لذا لن نتفاجأ ببعض الروايات المشذّبة أو المغالطات التي نعرف وجهها الآخر كحقيقة راسخة لن يهزها الشك من قراءة بضعة أسطر في رواية، في النهاية لن نتوقع منه أن يصلي على محمد ﷺ ، من تغلب على قراءته العاطفة عليه أن يكتب رواية مماثلة أو يساهم في التسويق لترجمة خيول نصر الله أو الطنطورية كما يفعل اليهود بكتبهم وأفلامهم.

OK, the book is completed and I am having difficulty choosing between 4 or 5 stars, so I guess I will choose 4. It is best to save 5 stars for those books that you are sure must get 5! Otherwise 5 stars doesn't mean much! There is a lot to think about in this book. That is why I like the book. It seems to me a very Jewish trait to analyze, discuss and argue about everything. I like that. Nevertheless in this family there were some things that were NEVER discussed. Issues that should have been di ...more

تخطى عقل القارئ العربي مرحلة التسقيط الفكري فما عادت الازدواجية المعيار (البعبع) الذي يثنيه عن نبش الفكر اليهودي المتخندق خلف أسلاك الرأي العام والعالمي الشائكة ، حين لم تعد غازات الاستمالة المخدرة في محاولاتها الحثيثة لتهويد الفكر العالمي وقلب موازين قضية احتلالهم لعروبة فلسطين تُبثُّ في الخفاء ..صار القارئ العربي بحاجة للتوغل العلني بالمقابل ، عين العاطفة ازدادت جسارة و اتزاناً كما عين العقل واستحال التأثير عليها .

سيرة ذاتية برائحة سوداء كريهة لحقائق تاريخية , عاموس عوز متذكرا ؟

في سرد ممل و تكرار لبعض المواقف يحكي لنا المؤلف تاريخ عائلته من بلد المهجر حتى وطن الخلود بنظره , أسر أتت تبحث لها عن مكان بعيد تنسى فيه معاناة بلد ممزق بسبب الحرب و متسلحة يالثقافة والأمل تجد لها الموطىء و الحب ...

متحدثا بسهولة في صور بديعة جميلة و في أحايين أخرى بملل و ترداد تزيد من نسق الرواية صعودا و هبوطا , عدا حديثه عن أمه التي انتحرت و عمه المثقف و كتبه لم اجد ما يثير انتباهي و يروي شغفي ...

I have delayed writing a review of this book, mainly because I feel that there’s no way I can do it justice. It’s not a page-turner, but rather, a book that draws you in. It’s a slow read, yet one that deserves patience and perseverance.

Amos Oz writes of his childhood and his young adult years, in the days before independence from the British and during the early years of the State of Israel. The cast of characters is huge, all of them actual people! They include Oz’s parents and grandparents, n

I selected this book after reading a news story about a Palestinian lawyer personally financing its translation into Arabic for his friends and family to read, his name is Elias Khoury. He was moved by a personal account through the eyes of a young boy about the birth of Israel, its families and real world strife; he hoped for better understanding between the warring sides. I thought this must be some book. It is.
I've always been cloudy on the subject of the Israeli conflict, who started what, w

This sometimes long and sometimes tedious, yet beautiful and sometimes magical book took me forever to read, but it was worth the effort, a fascinating study of what it was to be a first generation native Israeli with Eastern European parents who narrowly escaped death in the 1930's by moving to the new Jewish nation. Just as in America, immigrant parents could be a trial: Nobody in our neighborhood ever died from consumption or unrequited love or idealism. They were anything but reckless. Oz' ...more

„Аз бях дете на думите.“

Колко изненади с тази книга. Първо, уж познавам добре книгите на Амос Оз, а нямах представа, че книгата е биографична. Второ, когато започнах да я чета, очаквах, че ще обхваща живота му до момента на написването ѝ. Но това е книга за детството. И за предците на Амос Оз.
Към средата малко се разочаровах, че няма да видя след такова детство откъде е черпил упование Амос Оз, за да се превърне в личността, която познаваме. Как е изплувал, след като толкова камъни са натискал

I initially bought this book as a birthday gift for a friend, but soon after I changed my mind and didn't want to give it away anymore. It took me a month to read this book, but it was not its fault, it was mine. I am afraid of big books, but I'm proud to say that A Tale of Love and Darkness was the first step toward my rehabilitation. Look, I even got the courage to read Cloud Atlas!

It is also true that this book is not easy to read, as it has no actual plot and some parts are overflowing with

This was a challenging Hebrew read for me, and I suspect I would have appreciated it more in English. There were moments where I was able to appreciate the beautiful writing, but more often I felt like I was struggling to get through it. This was a long, highly detailed, circuitous memoir, and perhaps not the best choice for reading in my second language.

With that said, I certainly couldn't give this fewer than three stars. Aside from the beauty of the writing, the wealth of detail offered a rea

This book snuck up on me and made me fall in love. I wasn't sure how I felt about it for the first hundred pages or so. I thought the writing was exquisite, but I wasn't sure how interested I was by a story about an only child growing up in his dreamy, book-filled world. But as I kept reading, I found myself pulled further and further into his world. So many poignant details, so many touching family stories, so many tragic human interactions.

Some of my favorite parts:

It did take me a while to get going - until chapter 28 it felt like a patchwork of intimate recollections more suited to a diary than to a memoir, with lists of names of family friends and acquaintances orphan of any note or description. They obviously meant a lot to the author, but as a reader I could not "get them" until I was well into the book. And then you will see that this is a very intimate memoir which feels very much like a necessity for Oz, who lays bare thoughts he hasn't shared with ...more

Well.... This is a difficult book for me to rate. A beautifully written book, tragic, historic, with long brilliantly descriptive passages, a memoir of amazing times and a boy of incredible talent and sensitivity. Still, often the book was tedious, over-written, repetitive. It took me weeks to finish the book, when most books I devour in a day or two.

The shelves I have chosen for this book say it well. This beautifully written,thoughtful book is more than the autobiography of a person;it is a deep history of a place, and how that place came to be the city we again know as Jerusalem. In addition are the backstories, of life as it became unlivable for the Jews of mostly Eastern Europe in the generations leading up to 'the final solution' for their troublesome fate.

Ο Οζ ήταν από τους αγαπημένους μου συγγραφείς πριν ακόμα διαβάσω την "Ιστορία Αγάπης και Σκότους". Τώρα όμως που το διάβασα, αυτό που μου βγαίνει να πω είναι δεν έχω διαβάσει ωραιότερο βιβλίο. Αριστουργηματικό, συγκλονιστικό, αυτοβιογραφικό αλλά και απόλυτα λογοτεχνικό, το βιβλίο με μάγεψε και παρά τον όγκο του, δεν ήθελα με τίποτα να τελειώσει.

I was so moved by this memoir, the story of a boy growing up in Jerusalem in the '40s and '50s. Oz tells stories within stories (my mother likened it to "a chinese puzzle"), and with such clarity and detail that I began to feel a real understanding of his world even though it is so very different from my own. That quality might be why Elias Khoury, a Palestinian lawyer, recently paid to have this book published in Arabic (in honor of the tragic murder of his son -- see http://www.nytimes.com/201 ...more

“There are lots of women who are attracted to tyrannical men. Like moths to a flame. And there are some women who do not need a hero or even a stormy lover but a friend. Just remember that when you grow up. Steer clear of the tryant lovers, and try to locate the ones who are looking for a man as a friend, not because they are feeling empty themselves but because they enjoy making you full too. And remember that friendship between a woman and a man is something much more precious and rare than love: love is actually something quite gross and even clumsy compared to friendship. Friendship includes a measure of sensitivity, attentiveness, generosity, and a finely tuned sense of moderation.” 83 likes
