it was ok
Read from September 17 to 23, 2011

This is the only book of Batya Gur's I've read, and I had an ulterior motive: I'm traveling to Israel for the first time in a month and thought I could learn something from this book. But it was really unsatisfying...little real character development and most of it boring descriptions of the people who work at the television station that is the focus of the murders. The ending is great because you find out the motives for the murders, but I think the author could have built it up more throughout the book. That said, there may have been Israeli literary references I'm unfamiliar with that may have added to my understanding and appreciation. However, I'll take David Grossman any day!
