First book of the #Readathon weekend completed! This book includes the stories of three different people in the same apartment building told as confessions. It is stories of the choices and maybe mistakes that they‘ve made and demonstrates how sharing those stories helps them to move forward.

I loved this book and I wish I could sit down with a group of friends and talk about it, revisit/share paragraphs that made me laugh and that made me sad. An insightful, intimate autobiography/family history. Certainly not a book you can rush through.

This is a book I‘m very grateful to have read. Halevi writes as an Israeli Jew wanting to open up a dialogue with his Palestinian neighbours, putting his beliefs and the story of his homeland out there, whilst recognising that the Palestinian narrative is very different. 👇

RachelO I learnt a lot. And, especially right now, his approach seems important - wanting to listen, wanting to find commonalities, appreciating that there is more than one narrative. The last part of the book is from #anotherpointofview, letters from Palestinian readers in response to his book.

Cinfhen I thought this book was a great starting point and a clear, concise easy to comprehend approach to the Israel/Palestine conflict. I dislike the word conflict because it‘s SO MUCH MORE than a political war/ it‘s about identity and Homeland to two peoples. 1mo
squirrelbrain Sounds very interesting and thought-provoking... 1mo
RachelO @Cinfhen It really was. Coming at it with virtually no background knowledge, it was very readable (and short 😉), but covered so much ground. I think I already had it on my tbr when you posted the other week, but it finally prompted me to read it. 1mo

A tale of Kindness and Love for Books and their Owners: I left this book on my car, then drove off, forgot that it was on the trunk. Later I looked everywhere but couldn't find it. At 7pm someone rang the doorbell. An elderly gentleman handed me my Amos Oz copy and told me, he had found it on the interstate. My bookmark was a post card that had our address on it which is how he knew where the owner of the book lives. :)

Nebklvr Lovely man!!! Betting he is a reader 1mo
MrsMalaprop What a great story 😍🙏. 1mo
