I could easily read another couple hundred pages of this but at the same time I think it s just long enoughIt s concise but beautifully written in its dryness the kind of writing that once in a while just hits you with a particularly piercing and visual sentenceIt tells the story it wants to tell nothing nothing less in about three hours of reading It s complete but clearly tangibly just a beginningThe relationship between siblings is something that s always fascinated me and I love the way it s portrayed here because it feels real as far as I know it is and if it isn t for everyone I know for certain that it is at least for someoneThe entire Katznelson family is one you grow to feel for an incredible amount despite spending so little time with them in terms of pagesLevi in particular is a wonderful character pretty much an average kid delightfully normal but than a little amazing in his own right brave and funny but not in a showy deliberately humourous wayAnd Boaz Honestly I still know fuck all about BoazBut I love him That right there says something about the strength of this story as a novel and as a collective portraitPicking their relationship back up and working through the space that has come between is an extremely difficult process for Levi and Bo and the way Reinhardt narrates it you can feel it in your bones And that that s what makes the resolution that is not actually a resolution but will satisfy you all the same all the rewardingIt s a delicate but concrete story about friendship brotherhood and change with the war in the background a silent but imposing backgroundIt s the kind of story everyone should read
