Fictionalized story of the founding of Isreal. Important book in that it shaped American opinions about Israel and Jewish heroism. M. M. Silver writes about this in "Our Exodus: Leon Uris and the Americanization of Israel’s Founding Story". Negativity on Arabs noted. ( )

This book is so massive that somehow it should count as two! I read Uris's Exodus long ago before I went to college. I wanted to see if it would hold up to my memories. It succeeded in that. It is a powerful book, especially when it focuses on the past injustices to the Jews. It made me sick at heart to read of the brutality and atrocities they suffered. The power of what they endured to create a nation sang to me.

The difference this time is that back in college, I took a course titled "History as Seen through the Eyes of the Novelist." Taught by a journalist/historian, the main thought came from the final exam question. Paraphrasing it, the question was, "Every novelist has a reason for writing his book. What was the reason for the books you read? Did the novelist achieve his goal?"

It is evident that Uris is pro-Israeli. It comes through in all of his noble characters that I fell in love with. Ari Ben Caanan, his father Barak, his sister Jordana, Jordana's love David Ben Ami, Karen Hansen Clement, and Dov Landau are richly drawn. Kitty Fremont is the American nurse through whom we see so many of the events and people.

However, Uris definitely paints with a broad negative brush when it comes to the Arabs in the stories. "Dirty" and "stinking" are used too frequently to describe the people, and their homes are almost uniformly "squalid." From what I have read about the history, it does seem accurate. However, I feel the loaded words weren't necessary to clarify what happened was wrong. I felt that I was being shoved down a path I would have taken anyway.

My final verdict is this is a 4.5 star book, losing a half star for the reasons above. It certainly accomplishes the author's objectives. It is an important novel in many ways because it clarifies how the roots of what happened during the Holocaust were already in too many countries. The Jewish ghettos, the pogroms, and the existing discriminatory laws made it too easy to ignore what was happening to a people who were already marginalized.

If you haven't read this massive historical novel, it is well worth the time, with the caveat above. ( )

Eine berührende Geschichte über das Drama des jüdischen Volkes. Ein großartiger Roman, der mit der Gründung des Staates Israel ein Happy-End hat, parallel aber den Tod einer 18jährigen Hauptperson zu beklagen hat. ( )

Epic Story of Struggle for Freedom

This book is a war novel, love story and epic adventure surrounding the formation of Israel after WWII. The political intrigue and battle scenes make for an exciting story, but the romance is a bit melodramatic. I enjoy books that inspire me to learn more about a topic. This book made me realize how little I know about the history this book is based on. I definitely plan to do some research about this important turning point in history, which still effects the world today. ( )

Exceptional and powerful read. The harrowing backdrop to this story is given great depth by some of the best written characters I have encountered. ( )
