review 1: This book is something that I am not used to reading. But I truly did enjoy how the author did write this book. I loved how it was in poetry type of style and even play like. I thought I would have a hard time understanding the story but that was not the case. Really dramatic and heart felt for the families that had suffered a lost. The grieving stages of losing someone and how much the lost affects the family.
review 2: Around the World: Israel (Translated from Hebrew)I have never in my life read a book that so viscerally described the experience of grief. This play/poem/fable/myth is focused on the ritualized processing of grief after losing a child and it is beyond raw. It is about desperately trying to find words for an experience that defies speech a
... morend somehow, slowly, desperately, succeeding. While this is a book about losing a child I think it is retains its power when applied to other experiences of extraordinary loss. An unbelievably powerful elegy. I'll be looking up more work by Grossman. Prepare to be dragged to some very dark, painful places if you choose to read this, but know that it will be worth it. less

Is probably much better in Hebrew. The poetry felt flat in its translation.
Incredibly sad, beautiful and haunting.
Ik ben te dom voor dit boek.
