«Me llamo Yotam, tengo diez años y una grabadora. Mi familia se está derrumbando y yo intento meterla en un casete. Los grabo a escondidas cuando hablan de sexo, de dinero, de paz en el mundo, de violencia doméstica. De cosas que quieres y pierdes. También de Israel. Del pueblo perseguido y miedoso. Como yo. Todo se desmorona a mi alrededor y yo solo tengo un arma para def ...more

A mi parecer la importancia radica en el flujo ininterrumpido, coral, disperso que construye el narrador y como su historia está reescrita por medio de retazos (transcripciones) que rescata él por medio de su instrumento: mi Primer Sony. ¿De que otra forma haberlo realizado? Son recuerdos de un niño que aún no entiende/sabe como construir o armar todo lo que ha sucedido.

To me, this was unreadable. An insufferable experience I had to go to because it was required reading

Yotam et sa famille vivent en Israël. Sa mère, d'origine argentine, se lamente des incartades amoureuses de son mari. Et un jour, celui-ci part pour vivre avec Mikhal.

For those of us who loved reading 'Catcher in the Rye' here is a wonderful story delivered in the same vein: through the voice of a young, sensitive child, whose sentences run into each other with barely a stop, because he is not only the witness of the disintegration of his family, but is tested to the limit by it. This intense flow is cut off at the very end, because the protagonist finds himself at a loss of words at the last twist of the story. So will you.

His father, whom he adores despite

Worth every penny I paid for it, but that was only 50p. I don't doubt that this has some value as some kind of 'coming of age' type story for Jewish boys, but too many of the cultural references were lost on me, and in the end it just felt like sitting watching/listening to a family discussing and arguing about something which you knew little about and cared little about. That said, there was some interesting educational content in there which did help set things in context and inform me a littl ...more

Una novela envolvente, con una narración que parece una familia de matriuskas y refleja muy bien lo que podría ser el discurso algo errático o desordenado de un niño. He aprendido más sobre Israel, la II Guerra Mundial y judaísmo que en el Instituto.

It is fascinating to see adult family life through the eyes of a young boy and it also gives a very interesting background into Israeli society and history.

Really interesting, and a great window into a culture I realized I knew little about: a family's life in today's Israel.
