's review

it was ok

The book displays, and demands, a tremendous knowledge of historical events and persons which one may or may not look up somewhere if one is not fortunate enough to be already familiar with them. A story of different Jews at different times in modern history under different circumstances and tied together with the psychoanalysis done under someone who is taken for Sigmund Freud. Where is the aesthetics though? At no point was the book an engrossing or even enjoyable experience.
