A wonderfully written story , a masterpiece of contemporary Israeli literature , rich in imagery and deeply human.It is the story of the boy Zayde and his enigmatic mother , Judith , as well as Judith s three lovers, all of which take the role of Zayde s fathers We are kept guessing who Zayde s real father is.There story takes us from the 1930 s to the 1980 s in IsraelHighly reccomended for a rich and whimsical read.

C chi sostiene che lo scopo di ogni storia sia quello di mettere ordine nella realt e c chi dice invece che ogni storia nasce solo e soltanto per rispondere a delle domande.Tutto il romanzo ruota intorno a Yehudit, una donna abbandonata dal marito in seguito al suo tradimento e privata di sua figlia In seguito a ci Yehudit tenta di ricostruirsi una vita tre uomini rimarranno affascinati dalla sua semplicit e dal suo carattere e si innaranno di lei, contemporaneamente, senza riuscire mai ad esser [...]

Meir Shalev, le storie le sa raccontare bene, ma proprio bene bene.E io di fronte al questo romanzo, mi sono lasciata completamente trasportare, assorbire, incantare.Seguendolo ti porta in luoghi lontani, luoghi in cui mito e realt si confondono e tutto pu apparire possibile, ma non solo possibile addirittura credibile.In questi luoghi dell immaginazione, in cui le descrizioni della natura, il mondo animale la fanno da padrone e da nume ispiratore per i comportamenti umani, pu esistere un figlio [...]

I have discovered this book when browsing and I was intrigued by the comparison to Marquez and Murakami both authors I appreciate greatly in the reviews The title of the book, and the synopsis this is a story of a boy who has three fathers instantly caught my interest This is a first time ever I have read a book by an Israeli author and I have liked it a lot so much that I am going to look up and read his other books too I don t want to give no spoilers, but this is a very human story somewhat s [...]

Dat Meir Shalev een begenadigd verhalenverteller is, bewijst hij keer op keer, dus ook met dit boek Volgens sommigen heeft elk verhaal als doel orde aan te brengen in de werkelijkheid Niet alleen een ordening van tijden, maar ook van graden van belang , schrijft Shalev aan het begin van hoofdstuk 10 Eerste maaltijd Wie kan hem ongelijk geven Zeker als hij in hoofdstuk 6 Derde maaltijd zelf beweert dat ook leugenaars best weten dat de waarheid en verzinsel niet elkaars tegenpolen zijn Het zijn go [...]

I don t know if you will love this book, but everything about Shalev s voice, his the world he describes and his ideas of love and magic wove a poetic world that was a pleasure to inhabit I dragged out this reading because I didn t want to leave.

This is a charming and rather mysterious story of Zayde, his mother Judith and the three men who loved her, one of whom could possibly be Zayde s father, though Jacob tells us that if a woman wants a child, sometimes she can make herself pregnant without a man The four meals made by Jacob, staggered over the course of Zayde s life, begin with the first invitation when Zayde is 12 Jacob cooks a lavish meal, usually finished off with Zabaglione, while he consumes a fairly modest one of salad and r [...]

Wat een verteller, die Shalev We zijn hier allemaal boekenliefhebbers, niet Herinner je je nog die eerste boeken die je las als kind, puber, jongvolwassene Die exemplaren die je de liefde voor het lezen bijbrachten, die je versteld deden staan van de schoonheid van letters, woorden, zinnen, verhalen Die je fantasie op hol brachten Die je al dan niet bewust deden besluiten ja, ik hou van lezen, lezen wordt een levenslange passie en boeken mijn allerhoogste bezit Awel, zo n gevoel van ontdekking h [...]

I was in love with Jacob s voice so plain, yet so poetic, and I also loved the descriptions of animals and country life lived close to the ground The recursive structure wherein Zayde returns to Jacob s house four times to learn about his dead mother is clever and keeps the story moving where it might otherwise drift don t expect a conventional plot, however this feels like a fairytale an old fashioned one that grew in odd directions before it got written down and which the ethnographer record [...]

I loved the way this story was told, almost in circles slowly getting to the crucial point It is the story of the love of three men for one woman, the mother of their son The story covers 30 odd years, from the twenties to the fifties and takes place in a village in the Yizrael valley The woman is Judith and the men are Moshe Rabinovitz, a strong silent widowed farmer in whose stable she lives, the cattle dealer Gluberman, and Yakov Scheinfeld, expert in cooking, sewing, charming and dance And o [...]

I had to work hard to push myself through this book Khaya was annoyed by the lack of a plot a sentiment I agree with and I was also bothered by the lack of characters Yes, there are characters, but they aren t real people They are archetypes The book is a fable If you are happy with fables, you ll probably enjoy it, since Shalev s writing is beautiful if than a bit repetitive But i like a real story, with real characters and a plot So this wasn t for me 2.5 stars that I am rounding up because I [...]

Ik maakte in het begin de fout om het boek te snel te lezen omdat ik het verhaal zocht , en kon niet goed begrijpen waarom het zo n goed boek moest zijn Gelukkig herpakte ik me, en begon ik echt te genieten van de zalig mooi geschreven zinnen petje af voor de vertaler , en een ontwapenend verhaal dat je in een traagheid moet lezen om er ten volle van te genieten Voor mij absoluut een boek dat ik eens wil herlezen

I read this book in a most masterful Spanish translation by Ana Maria Bejarano Escanilla, with whom I have since corresponded Spanish title is _Por amor a Judit_ Set in rural Israel, in the years before its inhabitants had forgotten the art of coexistence, the book weaves incidents in a spiralling way, punctuated with elements of magical realism and Jewish folklore Characters are clearly drawn and language is extremely rich I wonder how the English translator dealt with it

This was quite a journey My mother recommended this book to me, promising that Shalev doesn t write about shtetl don t care for that genre I was dismayed to find that he basically does here, seeing as most of the characters are first gen immigrants The first 20 pages took me ages I just couldn t bring myself to care about the story or the characters people who keep telling little boys explicit stories about where to touch women just aren try likable me shudders But then I read on and on first I [...]

I don t know any other modern Hebrew author with such an effortless command of the language It is a continuously enjoyable read every other sentence could have been taken straight out of a poem.Shalev is also an excellent narrator of fables which, by the way, also makes his children s books superb This book has its share of short fables, mostly Diaspora Jewry style stories recounted by Yaakov like the one about the guy who builds a huge hourglass and believes he will die when the sand runs out T [...]

Note to Israeli authors or at least the ones my Hebrew book club leader keeps choosing A premise, no matter how strange or far reaching, does not equal a plot And while I d love to be one of those lofty, intellectual, postmodern readers who truly believe that novels don t need plots, I m just not I appreciate great writing I appreciate characterization I can even appreciate occasional mini digressions into charming anecdotes that don t necessarily move the story along But at the end of the day, [...]

Op de wereld is er niks armzaligers dan de reconstructiepoging De verbeelding is erboven te verkiezen, en liever dan de verbeelding is het verzinsel, en beter dan die drie is de herinnering De vier maaltijden is een po tisch en fantasierijk epos over Zejde en zijn familie Hij groeit in de nabijheid van zijn moeder Judith, een fascinerende vrouw met 101 geheimen, en drie potenti le vaders Jakob is ervan overtuigd dat hij Zejdes enige echte vader is, en werkt zich uit de naad om met Judith te kunn [...]
