2526 : Reading list 2019: #9: Judas by Amos Oz

An utterly brilliant meditative book that juxtaposes an individual against a nation divided. An individual who needs to decide only in one direction else be classified as a "Traitor" or "Judas".

Classic gripping writing. Very visual, you can imagine the whole book play out in front of you.

On a literary level, not very rich...but on a sheer scale of complexity and ambition, this is a classic.

On a scale of 10, maybe a 9. But a definite read.
At 277 pages brings my 2019 total to 2351 pages.

For the record, deepens my Israeli connect :-)
