    PDF Dror Burstein ´ Muck ePUB À ´ muck pdf, Muck ePUBOriginally I downloaded this book from Netgalley to further my international reading But then something about it made me put off reading it time and time again And that’s how I should have left it but noI decided to check it out after all Well let’s just say the book lived up to its tile precisely It’s a muckity muck of a novel Ok no let’s say about it because it was such a spectacular waste of time finished purely on OCD fumes From the very first chapter I suspected this might not be for me but the first chapter actually showed something some glimpse of a promising quirk alas one the book wasn’t able to sustain or actually one that wasn’t able to sustain the book The plot is difficult to summarize it’s essentially about a young man who becomes a prophet and foresees the momentous changes in Israel’s future and it’s all set in a sort of dystopian version of completely redrawn geopolitical version of the Middl

    PDF Dror Burstein ´ Muck ePUB À ´ muck pdf, Muck ePUBIt’s hard to refer to something so apocalyptic as an entertainment but that’s primarily what it is a brilliant entertaining display of imagination and literary including translation skills This novel is singular in many ways including the way Burstein melds together the biblical and contemporary It is also a critique of present day Israel amazingly with an omission of Palestinians that is not right wing because Jeremiah lived in an era of tribes far smaller than Palestinians politically it’s making fun of the right’s insistence of seeing the land of Israel in historical terms — when does this stop?However what makes this novel is not the politics but the author’s amazing im

    PDF Dror Burstein ´ Muck ePUB À ´ muck pdf, Muck ePUBI loved this big bizarre delirious book A bold outlandish retelling of a Biblical story that I am alas unfamiliar with it's a vertiginous cacophony of ancient and modern a surreal and parodic tale laced with unease melancholy and absurd humor The sweep of the world calls to mind the great masterpieces of modernism but the prose is much friendlier A strange and wonderful novel

    PDF Dror Burstein ´ Muck ePUB À ´ muck pdf, Muck ePUBThis is one of the strangest books I've ever read It is a sort of retelling of the books of Second Kings andJeremiah with the main characters being the last three kings of Judah and the prophet with appearances by Nebuchadnezzar and several of his officers and other historical figures It is set in present day Jerusalem so there are references to the light railway there's a biggest bowl of hummus Guinness world record and Jehoyachin second of the three kings is off being a concert pianist in Italy The prophet grapples with his calling and with the kings who don't like his prophecies though this theme gets sidetracked frequently while the kings try to figure out whether to submit to Babylon or ally with Egypt Sometimes the prophet speaks in direct quotes from the books of Jeremiah and Lamentations As an attempt to make the characters relatable as opposed to sketchy biblical figures this book sort of succeeds As a fantasy it's a fai

    PDF Dror Burstein ´ Muck ePUB À ´ muck pdf, Muck ePUBWhat if the Jeremiah story happened with today's traffic transportation and technologyBurstein plugged in the names the prophecies and the royalty but updated everything else It is true nothing different happens under the sonThis book was hilarious and would be even better as a discussion because i missed a lot of historical nuances

    PDF Dror Burstein ´ Muck ePUB À ´ muck pdf, Muck ePUBA modern dress retelling of the book of JeremiahTranslated from the Hebrew this takes place in both modern and ancient times and is quite funny Admittedly it’ s not an easy read and I had to look up Jeremiah as well as some Babylonian kings but how can you help liking a book where the world’s biggest bowl of hummus competition is taking place?And the king commits suicide by falling into itKudos to the translator
