Of his 12 sons, the mighty Jacob loved his 11th, Joseph, most of all...which made the 11 other sons dislike, even hate, Joseph...especially after Jacob had made a beautiful coat of many colors for Joseph. So the brothers secretly sold Joseph to merchants heading for Egypt. However, years later, Joseph saved his brothers from a devastating drought, where they founded the nation of Israel.

    " This is really a story of love and forgiveness. Joseph who doesn't know darkness, and is a light and loving soul wouldn't act any other way but to forgive his cunning brothers. Of course! However, is it his father to blame? If he loved all his children equally, would the history of the world still be the same? "

    " A phantastic account of the biblical story of Jakob's family and Joseph and his brothers. I am reading it in German, but I am told that even translations bring out the powerful language of Thomas Mann. It feels like being right there a the time. Mann must have done intensive research to be able to describe the traditions, customs and ways of life and religion in such detail. "

    " An incredible achievement! Mann considered this his best work and I agree. While not a quick or easy read, the rhythms carry you along page after page and in my case month after month. I savored the writing while enjoying Mann's extended exegesis on time, myth, story telling, history, religion, belief, etc. etc. What a shame this is not better known although the new translation should help considerably. "

    " wow ... wonderful but really tough sledding ... who knows when i will get all the way through ... but I have read some of the sweet spots and they are a joy to the heart "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jakob | 12/8/2013

    " Delightfully boring (not being ironic!). Along with "Der Zauberberg" the greatest work by Thomas Mann. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christine | 11/5/2013

    " One of my all-time favorite books. It's a doorstop, but well worth it. "

    " Review to come . . . "

    " The original lord of the rings. But biblical. "

    " This is one of my favourites, read it ages ago. "

    " This book took me 4 months to read. It was a difficult read, but a satisfying one. "

    " the best i've ever read "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Karl | 8/19/2010

    " I really wish I liked this more than I did, but Mann here comes off as really stale at times. Mann's total immersion in the period's mythology though is stunning. Might just need another read before the scope of the work really comes alive for me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Susan | 7/19/2010

    " If I could give this six stars I would. "

    " This is easily the best, most beautifully written book I've ever read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mogg Morgan | 10/16/2009

    " Better than the bible - not that i'm a fan of that particular anthology. TM does it better . . . somewhere - "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ksenia | 2/4/2009

    " Lovingly shows the origin and value of myth, archetype in culture. Absolute poetry, at least in the translation into Russian by Solomon Apt. "

    " just ordered for my birthday... "

    " A magnificent epic midrash of the Genesis Joseph novella which I've read and re-read with great enthusiasm over the years! "
