I didn't really like the book, maybe you need to be between 15 and 18 to really get into it. It was much too self pitying for me. I also found it very amazing how the author built the story on the comparison between the Dresden bombings and 9/11 (!). Maybe this is just a result of American ignorance on European history. I see that other people liked it, don't understand why. I was happy when it was finally over.
To the End of the Land
- Autor: David Grossman, Jessica Cohen (translator)
- Sprecher: Arthur Morey
- Spieldauer: 26 Std. und 19 Min.
Ora, a middle-aged Israeli mother, is on the verge of celebrating her son Ofer’s release from army service when he returns to the front for a major offensive. In a fit of preemptive grief and magical thinking, she sets out for a hike in the Galilee, leaving no forwarding information for the “notifiers” who might darken her door with the worst possible news. Recently estranged from her husband, Ilan, she drags along an unlikely companion: their former best friend and her former lover Avram, once a brilliant artistic spirit.

the beginning was quite nice and interetsing, but after the first 4 hours it just stopped being interestring, as everything was just turning around the fact how special the son of the main character is.
In addition, every character seems utterly mad.
After half of the book I quit and don't think I will ever continue.
