    EBOOK The House of Rajani Apparently the novel's popularity in Israel reflects a hunger to explore the truth of the Zionist narrative after being force fed on the victors' version of history The original title was The House of Dajani and the main character

    EBOOK The House of Rajani Exuisitely written from the first page until the last I was completely absorbed in Alon Hilu's fanciful tale In the late 1800's Isaac Luminsky and his beautiful yet temperamental bride sail from Odessa to Palestine to work the land and build Jewish roots A chance encounter with a young Palestinian boy named Salah Rajani leads to an unexpected relationship between the two Salah suffers from terrifying visions and prophesi

Summary The House of Rajani

Read ´ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ´ Alon Hilu The House of Rajani Characters ¶ 107 Alon Hilu ´ 7 Characters Violence and tragedyThis rich and colourful novel is made up of the two opposing journals of Hilu's intriguing and extraordinary protagonists as they negotiate love honour and betrayal in the changing world of nineteenth century Palestine. This book washmmmm I didn t like it but I didn t dislike it It was really interesting but I couldn t connect with any of the charactersIt s told through the diary pages of a young disturbed Palestinian child Salah and a grown egotistical Jewish man Isaac It s a reflection of the Zionism in the 19th century Haphazardly thrown into the book were stories that the young boy made up in his headThe stories were the hardest part to follow because they weren t needed They weren t freuent enough for me to remember what it had to do with the main story line and I don t see why Hilu felt the story should have them Even the characters were a little flat and dry but at the same time I wonder if any of the problems had to do with the fact that this was a translated book from Israeli to English The only part I liked about this book it s saving grace was towards the end you couldn t tell who was telling the truth Throughout the novel I assumed Isaac was writing the most true version of accounts with Salah being off in la la land However toward the end I began to wonder if there was truth to Salah s accounts and if Isaac was rewriting history to sound favorable to him Did Isaac actually murder Salah s father Was it Salah s mother that murdered him Or did he actually die naturally When Isaac and Salah had their confrontation who had a closer account to what really happened

Read ´ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ´ Alon Hilu The House of Rajani Characters ¶ 107 Alon Hilu ´ 7 Characters Handsome young man a dynamic Jewish settler new to the city by the name of Isaac Luminsky Luminsky covets both the fertile lands of the Rajani estate and Salah's beautiful mother Afifa and his friendship with the boy is destined to lead to. The first thing that struck me was the similarity to the book I just finished The Elegance of the Hedgehog in terms of the narration and the fact that it was a translation There are the alternating voices this time in the form of diary entries of an adult and a precocious child this time male not female There the similarities end though This story of one man and boy is actually I think a metaphor for the narratives of the two nations fighting over one land I found it very thought provoking how the juxtaposed tellings of the same events differed in perspective and interpretation It was a powerful way of conveying the viewpoints of the Arabs and the Jews The characters were all difficult to like whatever their race All were portrayed as being flawed It was hard to tell where the author s sympathies lie I most enjoyed Saleh s prophecies which were made to sound so ridiculous and far fetched and futuristic but which have indeed come to pass Like the round suare and triangular towers that would one day be built on his landeven though my husband now works in the round tower it still sounded so ridiculous The historical setting and mention of the early settlements was also interesting especially as I live in one of themNot an easy book to read too wordy and hallucinatory in parts but I m glad I read it Another to add to my list of I wish I was up to reading the original
