Got this download for free, has anyone read this. I‘m currently struggling with The Bear and The Nightingale and May switch books for now

ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled Sounds good! 13mo
MoBee @ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled , it really does sound good. I look at some reviews and it was compared to Pillards of The Earth by Ken Follett 13mo
ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled Ooooo! That is SO in my wheelhouse! Thanks for the heads up! 13mo

It's quite some time ago that I read this gorgeous book. It's one of the books, you will never forget, when you read it once. I loved how the story develops and it's a great book about history, mankind and therefore written so perfectly well. 😍

Andrew65 I own this, I obviously need to read it! 1y
Sarah83 @Andrew65 you really have to. Anyway I liked just the first book. 😉 1y
Andrew65 @Sarah83 It‘s only the first one I own. 1y

Andrew65 @Melissa_J @Sarah83 Mine was one of the books passed to me by my mum before she died. 1y
Sarah83 @Andrew65 sorry to hear that. 😪 Now I know, why you haven't read it 1y
Andrew65 @Sarah83 Thanks, but a few years of passed and I need to read some of them, I‘ve actually got a lot of older historical fiction from her and my passion for historical fiction too! (edited) 1y
Sarah83 @Andrew65 you will love it. I promise. 😉 1y
Andrew65 @Sarah83 Will let you know when I get to it. 👍 1y
BarbaraBB Good recommendation, thanks! 1y
rubyslippersreads I‘ve never even heard of this book. I ❤️ historical fiction. Stacking. 😊 1y

What a fascinating read! This book follows a young doctor-to-be in medieval Europa and Persia and teaches a lot about the development of medical science and also about different religions and them living together. The main character is very likeable and I enjoyed reading the book even though it hasn‘t a typical arc of suspense. Sadly the author himself says that not everything is historically correct so I don‘t know what to really believe :D.

LaLecture Oh, and I forgot to mention that this is my fourth book for #litsyclassics :) 1y
Sarah83 One of my favourite books 😍 1y

„Mein Vater sagt, dass jemand, der bei Juden lebt, nie ein ordentlicher Mensch sein kann.“
„Ich hielt Euren Vater für einen netten Mann“, erwiderte er nachdenklich, „aber er ist wohl ein Arschloch.“

??? Rob ist durch seine offene, wissbegierige und vor allem ehrliche Art wirklich sympathisch. Während viele andere damals Juden misstrauisch und feindselig begegnet sind, findet er sie interessant und lernt von ihnen.

Es ist wirklich spannend, was man in diesem Buch alles über das Judentum lernt. Ich wusste zum Beispiel nicht, dass Fleisch nur koscher ist, wenn das Tier vor der Schlachtung keinen einzigen Kratzer und keine Verletzung hat und sich während der Schlachtung nicht bewegt ?. Interessant ist auch, dass Juden nur wiederkäuende Tiere und Paarhufer und bestimmte Geflügelsorten essen dürfen. Da finde ich es einfacher, einfach gar kein Fleisch zu essen :D

Sarah83 Ich hab das Buch geliebt, als ich es gelesen habe 💖 1y
LaLecture @Sarah83 Mir gefällt es bisher auch sehr gut :). Es ist sehr ruhig, aber auch sehr interessant. 1y
Sarah83 Ein tolles Bucg 1y

Sace Ok. I think I figured out you're learning a lot of interesting things about Judaism and kosher butchering laws? 1y
Sace Und ich glaube dass ich habe diese Buch gelesen (Auf Englisch.) 1y
LaLecture @RestlessFickleBookHoarder Correct! It‘s “The Physician” in English 1y
Sace Yay! Yes, I think I did read that long ago. You've got me wanting to re read it. 1y

„Es war gut, dass Meier mit Rob gesprochen hatte, denn es hätte alles mögliche geschehen können, wenn ihm nicht klargemacht worden wäre, dass die Gastfreundschaft während des Winters nicht den Gebrauch der Frauen einschloss.“

Gebrauch??? Dass Noah Gordon Sex unfassbar unerotisch beschreibt, habe ich ja mittlerweile verstanden, aber diese Formulierung finde ich echt krass ?. Das klingt, als wären Frauen für Rob Gegenstände.

Sace Schwer. Ganz Schwer. Ich habe nur ein bisschen verstanden (?) Sorry I was doing this without benefit of Google or a dictionary. 1y
LaLecture @RestlessFickleBookHoarder Sorry, that book is a hard one 😅. It‘s set in medieval times and the writing is rather old-fashioned so it‘s probably not a good example for someone who‘s only learning German. I was complaining about how the narrator talks about “the use of women”, meaning sleeping with women, as it sounds as if women are objects, not people. I‘ll try to tag you when I review the book or write something easier in German :). 1y
LaLecture @RestlessFickleBookHoarder I‘d say „Ich habe nur ein bisschen was verstanden.“ It‘s a bit informal but what most people would say. I‘ll try to use the hashtags more when I post in German :) (edited) 1y
Sace @LaLecture yay! I got the "ich habe nur ein bisschen" part right! Thanks for the context. Rereading with more context did help. I should make more of am effort to look up words too. I appreciate getting to practice! Thanks! ? 1y

Finally made it to part two of this giant book! It is great so far! It reminds me of when I read Ken Follet's The Pillars of the Earth. I like the character development in both books.

This book has been recommended to me by several people, all of whom have fairly different taste in books from my own, but it‘s historical fiction and it‘s on Kindle Unlimited so I figured I‘d give it a whirl.

Maike That doorstopper has been sitting on my shelf for years now... 🤭 2y
Elisa @Maike 😄😄😄 just as well I cannot see how big it is when I download the kindle version I guess! I have had another doorstopper sitting on my shelf for years so this is book karma I suppose 😅 (edited) 2y

This showed up in today's BookBub email. I may rank this in my top ten historical fiction. It is a story that has stuck with me for years, and I've enjoyed every reread as much as the original. Highly recommended!! #blameLitsy

robinb Got it! Thanks for the tip. 2y
Emily92Bibliophile I love Noah Gordon!! I read The Last Jew for my Spanish Literature Class I took before I went to Spain for two weeks! We read books on the Inquisition and The Last Jew has stuck with me these past couple of years 💙 I'll be buying this one thank you!👍🏻 2y
TrishB I loved this! Don't know what happened to my copy though. 2y
Lynnsoprano @Emily92Bibliophile I had forgotten about that one! That deserves a reread. 2y

A lazy, rainy Saturday morning with a little dog, mindless knitting, and a good book. I've been in a reading lull for the past few months, but The Physician is getting me back into it.
