    Inhaltsangabe

    Called “brave and riveting” by Jeannette Walls, Deborah Feldman’s New York Times best-selling memoir of escaping from a strict Hasidic community includes a new afterword by the author as well as the epilogues from the original 2012 editions detailing the circumstances of her life after leaving her husband and forging new beginnings for herself and her young son.

    As a member of the strictly religious Satmar sect of Hasidic Judaism, Deborah Feldman grew up under a code of relentlessly enforced customs governing everything from what she could wear and to whom she could speak to what she was allowed to read. Yet in spite of her repressive upbringing, Deborah grew into an independent-minded young woman whose stolen moments reading about the empowered literary characters of Jane Austen and Louisa May Alcott helped her to imagine an alternative way of life among the skyscrapers of Manhattan. Trapped as a teenager in a sexually and emotionally dysfunctional marriage to a man she barely knew, the tension between Deborah’s desires and her responsibilities as a good Satmar girl grew more explosive until she gave birth at 19 and realized that, regardless of the obstacles, she would have to forge a path - for herself and her son - to happiness and freedom.

    Remarkable and fascinating, this “sensitive and memorable coming-of-age story” (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette) is one you won’t be able to put down.

    Very insightful and reflective of so many issues that many people experience!

    After watching the series on Netflix, I was curious for the book. I think it’s amazing! You get a much deeper view of Deborah growing up in the Hasidic community and all the things that are customary there. It gives a chance to understand what is in the people’s minds and, maybe somewhere, why they decide to live in a world so different from ours.

    Great, encouraging, addictive

    A great book that had me hooked from the beginning! I can only recommend it, and even better when you can watch the series on Netflix as well...

    wunderbar

    Ich habe es verschlungen! Ich bin, wie wahrscheinlich viele andere auch, durch die Netflix-Serie darauf gekommen. Durch das Buch bekommt man viel tiefere Einblicke in die Welt des ultraorthodoxen Judentums. Die Geschichte unterscheidet sich stark von der der Serie.

    Educating and powerful story

    Skilfully told by the author. The only weakness is the voice. Neither the accent nor the tone reflects that of Deborah Feldman.

    Thrilling and very emotional story

    I really enjoyed this audiobook! The reader gets a thrilling inside into the Hasidic way of life and the emotional troubles of a young girl feeling as a stranger in this community. It makes you think about all the things we- who live in freedom- take for granted. The story leaves you in awe for this brave young girl. Finally a good contemporary book, thank you!
