A plane en route from New York to Tel Aviv is forced down by bad weather. A nearby house provides refuge for five of its passengers: Claudia, who has left her husband and found new love; Razziel, a religious teacher who was once a political prisoner; Yoav, a terminally ill Israeli commando; George, an archivist who is hiding a Holocaust secret that could bring down a certain politician; and Bruce, a would-be priest turned philanderer. Their host - an enigmatic and disquieting man who calls himself simply the Judge - begins to interrogate them, forcing them to face the truth and meaning of their lives. Soon he announces that one of them-the least worthy - will die. Download and start listening now!

    " Precteno behem jednoho dne. Neuveritelná psychologie - príbehy - i zastrešující motiv.
    Zvlášt popis pocitu ve vezení mi naprosto bral dech. Musím si precíst i neco dalšího od stejného autora. "

    " Not badly written, just lame premise. Confusing. "

    " I should have been in a more contemplative mood to read this. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Leslie-ann | 8/26/2009

    " I was really disappointed. The book is filled with trite philosophical diatribe and its digressions leave one wanting to return to the main plot. The ending is terribly predictable. It is a nice allegorical attempt...but I wouldn't read it twice. "

    " Pros:
    * Beautiful writing.

    Cons:
    * To me it seemed more like a philosophical discussion than an interesting story and that is not my cup of tea.

    Other: "

    " I enjoyed this book very much; however, I felt that it was a bit confusing due to all the different stories intertwined together. It definitely makes you think about what you're living for. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Liberty | 2/17/2009

    " Interesting in looking at how people deal with being faced with death and extreme situations, but i really didn't like it. "

    " Khas Elie Wiesel sekali... Gelap, riweuh, and sophisticated!! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nicole | 11/22/2008

    " Wiesel is, no doubt, an amazing writer. This book was okay but it didn't move me the way "Night" did. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katherine | 11/11/2008

    " this book was not what i thought it was and didnt move me. i also figured out the ending "

    " This is a well written late-stormy-night with a bottle of Merlot read. "
