It provides a look inside a very insular community during a particularly difficult time: It's a coming of age story for the main character, for America, and for the Jewish community. But the Kindle edition: There must be missing periods in the book. The word "life" twice appears as Ufe, and there are a number of other typos that seem to be the result of using OCR scanning to bring the book to an e-Book audience.
It is readable, but you do sometimes have to backtrack to supply the missing periods. It's great to have older, wonderful books available electronically. I would like to hope the publishers will eventually take the time to honor the e-Book versions with adequate copy-editing.
But I won't hold my breath. Hardcover Verified download. I read this book decades ago and still come back to it to live in Chaim Potok's world of religious thought and family life. This story is about a boy growing up in New York in an orthodox Jewish family during the s and s.
The author, in my opinion, tells a compelling story of this boy in a family with a hero father, while both sets of grandparents refuse to leave Europe as Hitler's regime grows stronger.
The story revolves around David, his thoughts, and many trials as he grows and goes through yeshiva school. The growing up of an extremely gifted of course scholar who also suffers from a physical deformity Still reading - but a good account of growing up in a Jewish migrant household in the early part of the 20th century from the sensitive eyes of a very bright boy.

What does Reuven think the yeshiva team believes about the game and what it represents to them? Does he agree with their view of the competition? What does Danny say to Reuven when he visits him in the hospital? How does Reuven respond to this?
Why do you think he gives him this advice? How is Reuven changed by the experience of his injury and recovery? Consider how sight and ways of seeing function as symbols and motifs thereafter in the book.
Do either Reuven or Danny find their purpose by the conclusion of the story? If so, how do they accomplish this and what must they sacrifice in order to do so? Although Reuven narrates the story, Danny also functions as a main character. Consider how we come to know the two characters by way of their relationship.
What unites the two characters and how are they different? What common struggles do they face and how does each surmount them? What do we learn about each character through their relationship that we might not otherwise be privy to?
Explore the motif of silence. Why does Reb Saunders refuse to talk to his son except in association with his studies? How does Danny react to this? What do Reuven and his father think of the way Reb Saunders raises Danny? What other examples of silence are found throughout the novel? At its conclusion, does the book answer the question of whether silence is ultimately positive or negative, necessary or destructive? Compare and contrast the father-son relationships in the book.
What do the two fathers have in common and what divides them? How do the boys perceive their fathers? Describe how each man raises his son. What does each father try to teach his son or instill in him, and why do you think these lessons are important to the boys?
How does each of the main characters react to the news of the Holocaust? Does this revelation unite the characters or set them further apart?
