    Description

    Winner of the International Literature Prize, the new novel by Amos Oz is his first full-length work since the best-selling A Tale of Love and Darkness.

    Jerusalem, 1959. Shmuel Ash, a biblical scholar, is adrift in his young life when he finds work as a caregiver for a brilliant but cantankerous old man named Gershom Wald. There is, however, a third, mysterious presence in his new home. Atalia Abravanel, the daughter of a deceased Zionist leader, a beautiful woman in her 40s, entrances young Shmuel even as she keeps him at a distance. Piece by piece, the old Jerusalem stone house, haunted by tragic history and now home to the three misfits and their intricate relationship, reveals its secrets. At once an exquisite love story and coming-of-age novel, an allegory for the state of Israel and for the biblical tale from which it draws its title, Judas is Amos Oz's most powerful novel in decades.

    Beautifully written atmospheric

    I chose this book because of the reputation of Amos Oz worldwide. Judas certainly justified that reputation. He paints beautiful pictures with every description, whether of people, places or feelings.

    The setting of the novel is 1959 Jerusalem, a divided city struggling to find it identity after its founding. The young man, Schmuel, at the center of the story shares his nation’s struggle. He’s on the road to finding out his own identity when he takes a job as a companion to an old man and moves into his home shared with an intriguing woman, the daughter of an opponent of the State of Israel. The story follows three months of Schmuel’s stay during which he sees the dynamics of the arguments that roil Israel to this day.

    Oz’s descriptive style creates an atmosphere that allows the reader to feel the conflicting emotions of the young man trying to find his way, falling in love with a woman he can’t have, dealing with an old man who lost his son in war and understanding the arguments of a dead man considered a traitor to his nation.

    Judas moves slowly but the quality of the writing kept me engaged throughout. I’d like to read more of Oz’s work.

    Outstanding novel

    Brilliant writing that spans the ages. I never lost interest and was sorry the novel ended when and where it did.

    Amos Oz is artist of words.

    Very good. Oz paints his story with beautiful words. Found the ending slightly dissatisfing some how.

    Incandescent

    A sublime experience. Absolutely shattering and yet funny, profoundly sophisticated and majestic in scope and understanding.

    Not. Page-Turner

    I enjoyed learning about Israel, daily domestic life there as well as the conflicts the young nation faced, and the speculation about the life of Jesus. However, the storyline itself was plodding and Shmuel was so pathetically passive that I wanted to slap him into the Gaza strip. Aralia seemed less tragically mysterious and more just a confusing tease. I did learn from the novel though.

    Excellent Naration

    Interesting story, but what I liked the most was the voice of the narrator. Jonathan Davis didn’t overdo his voice when he narrated the different characters, both female or male. However with subtlety of his voice and accent, we can clearly tell them apart.

    I liked this story

    I don’t know what o was expecting and the book started a bit slowly for me. I want to identify with the main characters but I wasn’t impressed with or all that interested in Shmuel at first. But it was the two historical stories that really sucked me in and even having finished the book I want to know more.

    Fully performed

    Jonathan Davis performs Amos Oz’s, Judas, with a fully pitched ear, an intuitive sense of balance as to the story’s pace, and a well imagined scope of the characters—their tones of voice, inflections of speech, and articulation. Through his performance, it was easy for me, with Oz’s written descriptions, to see the characters acting, living authentically in this revelatory and penetrating story.

    Excellent performance

    One of the best audio performances I’ve listened to yet. You need patience to get going with this novel.
