A GREAT EPIC PORTRAYAL OF THE HISTORY OF THE JEWS, BUT..

Departing from a digging in an archeological place where important ancient pieces are dug up, Michener reconstructs the whole history of the Jewish people from the early beginnings of Judaism to the contemporary sabra fighting for Israel independence in the XX century
Every chapter develops over a period in history and relates to a piece found and later traced to that specific time

Positive: Though recreated with some fictional contents, is an excellent book for all Jewish people interested in a general overview of the history of their ancestors and that will surely contribute to the strengthening of their identity

Negative: Almost no reference to the Holocaust, the worst atrocity ever perpetrated in the history of mankind, was made Nazism and Hitler look almost non existent
