    One thought on “The War Of The Rosens”

    1. Melodrama Soppy, over the top melodrama Simply written and readable, but such well covered ground by others that it s hard not to feel like this is all a clich A coming of age story in New York A sick sister A cruel father Clearly this is some kind of memoir, disguised as a novel Doing that weakens it Why not call it a memoir, and make it stronger If it s a novel, why not take some grander twists and turns Throw some deeper oddity into it Being neither memoir nor novel, it just sort of happens, [...]

    2. This novel, like The Believers, deals with a dysfunctional American Jewish families whose parents are committed left wing antireligious atheists, yet I enjoyed this one, The War of the Rosens, much I think it s because although this story is sad in many ways, it s not mean spirited as The Believers seemed to me.It s not a great novel I could criticize the pacing, some of the characterizations But it held my attention I cared about what happened to the characters, to some extent.P.S has the wron [...]

    3. This was a very well written novel The characters were memorable, but I found it oppressively sad and depressing until close to the end I wish the author had written a few less pages on the dilemma and continued the story further into the future, taking the reader from the depths to the light instead of just indicating it happened.

    4. Well written, vivid use of language I personally related to the story and characters as I grew up in a difficult jewish family from the Bronx and know the settings, etc Also, I was a personal friend of the author in college She was a poet in those days and her use of language in this novel can be quite poetic.

    5. A Jewish family, the Rosens, struggling with issues of faith and family in the Sixties Brilliant writing, not much of a story reminds me of The Heart is a Lonely Hunter by Carson McCullers only in the Bronx instead of the South Very character driven Very slice of life If you enjoy that type of literature, you should really like this.

    6. Blech Couldn t make it a third of the way through this book I generally dislike overly negative depressing angst ridden books I wanted to smack Leo and Annette Time to read something else

    7. I found it was a little too full of angst for my taste, but I did enjoy the cultural nostalgia and the fact it brought some childhood memories to mind I guess I just found the characters a bit too extreme in their personalities and the writing style not all that compelling.

    8. Steph turned me on to Janice Eidus Love her writing This book is about very complex characters The currents of generational abuse are the basis for this family s life.
