    5. I realize that this is a love story What I found charming about this particular love story is that I couldn t understand why it was called one That is, until the end The end is beautiful I ve read so many endings endings that end with a sigh, with a cry, or with a laugh But this one was perfect I must admit I was sleepy when I read that last sentence, but I don t think I could ve reacted to the finish of this book anyways It was perfect.Like I said, for me, this was mostly a.I realize that this [...]

    6. I have not yet read anything by I B Singer I did not love The Slave is no exception Singer was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1978 and always wrote in Yiddish until his death in 1991, in Surfside, FL.After all my reading this year about slavery in America, I come to this reminder that slavery is as old an institution as prostitution Both seem to be inherent in the human story The Slave is an epic in 311 pages Jacob was a learned and pious Jew, son of wealthy parents, who found himself [...]

    8. Another time and place with which I was not previously familiar 17th century Poland, the Jewish population is treated horrendously They are displaced, murdered, sold into slavery Not only has Jacob been subjected to this treatment by others, his relationship with a Gentile woman gets him into hot water with his own Peoples There are many, many questions about faith and what it means to be faithful and to have a relationship with God The writing was beautiful and I found myself struggling to put [...]

    11.

    12.

    14. Beautifully written and absorbing novel It is so rich in detail and yet nothing is superfluous it is a story that deals with the real fundamentals of life faith, hope and love Jacob is committed to God Even as a slave, he tries to observe all of the Jewish laws and customs He is committed to his eternal life despite all manner of distractions brutal living conditions, pagan influence and sexual desire I was struck by the contrast between the pagans who were also considered Gentiles and this Jew [...]

    15. This is a fascinating and nuanced work by a Nobel Prize winning 20th century writer of Jewish themed novels who reaches for a big picture historical theological philosophical perspective On the surface, this is the story of a doomed love between a Jew who is captured and sold into slavery following at 16th Century pogrom and falls in love the with daughter of his master But Romeo and Juliet, this isn t The situation faced by the Jewish community in Europe in the centuries following the post Roma [...]

    16. The Slave is one of Bashevis Singer s strongest novels, and a good place to start if you have never read any of his books if only because it is a short novel It s also wonderfully well written, reflective and strongly felt Several of Bashevis Singer s novels share a pattern a man intends to be good but finds himself is drawn into love by his emotions Choosing to be true to himself, he diverges from conventional Jewish virtue and encounters a new intensity of suffering that leads him deeply into [...]

    17. En esta obra, Singer relat una historia de amor marcada por las adversidades que las leyes y las circunstancias personales de los dos protagonistas ten an consigo La obra supone una fuerte cr tica a las normas que impiden al individuo actuar con libertad moral asust ndole con la amenaza de no alcanzar la vida eterna Jacob, el protagonista es un esclavo durante toda la novela, desde su situaci n inicial obligado a trabajar para Jan Bzik hasta despu s, cuando, ya liberado y tra do de vuelta a la c [...]

    18. It was quite interesting, certainly different from what I usually read I prefer the Wanda part, for obvious reasons The religious talk bothered me than I expected it to Personally, I have nothing against religion But, I don t think religion should stand in the way of happiness All that self restraining, god fearing, I will punish myself for my sins behavior doesn t sit well with me Their lives would have been so much easier if they had not been so devoted Now, some might agree with me and other [...]

    19. Intense and beautiful, this book is equal parts love story and critique of religion and society It is written in such a way that it s true nature and message isn t fully apparent until the final chapters Though based in 16th century Poland and written almost 50 years ago, it carries strong messages for life today I am very happy to have read this.

    20. Wow Brutal descriptions of peasant life in 1600 s Poland, plus pogroms and their effect on the Jewish community The line from here to Auschwitz is straight and clear Slams those who choose to practice the insignificant pieces of religion but leave out the critical stuff like love, respect and charity Woven into the hardships is a touching and romantic interfaith love story.

    21. What a book and what a style of writing A story of an oddly matched couple in the 17th century Poland will make you wonder among other things about the morality, religious dogmas and the ways you are supposed to live and love and the ways you actually want to live.
