One thought on “Open Heart

  1. Sandra

    E il primo libro di Yehoshua che leggo e credo non sar l ultimo L avevo iniziato spinta dal mio a per l India ma dell India c ben poco.Il romanzo incentrato sulle meccaniche di una passione impossibile tra un giovane medico e una donna di vent anni pi vecchia di lui, moglie del direttore dell ospedale dove questi lavora, passione cos scandagliata dal punto di vista psicologico da risultare artificiosa, posticcia, celebrale pi che carnale Il protagonista mi rimasto antipatico, soprattutto per il [...]

    This book stacks up about evenly with The Lover, not a magnificently brilliant work, but a solid if overly long and a bit repetitive novel about the unknowable nature of attraction and love What gets me about this book however is believability I understand I believe so anyway the messages about the impossibilities of the soul and love as divided by Israel and India that Yehoshua is trying to convey, but unfortunately he succeeds too well in making his main characters unsympathetic Benjamin Benjy [...]

    Qualcuno prima o poi far capire a Yehoshua che in un libro contano pi i contenuti che il numero di pagine.Detto questo romanzo lunghissimo e ripetitivo nelle situazioni, ma con qualche spunto buono e mi spiace quasi ammetterlo una scorrevolezza non comune che fa venire comunque voglia di andare avanti nella lettura La tematica una sola il rapporto adultero fra il protagonista, poco meno che trentenne, e una donna di molto pi grande, gi sposata e ben poco avvenente Yehoshua costruisce un romanzo [...]

    Avete mai avuto la sensazione che un viaggio avrebbe cambiato la vostra vita e che al ritorno non foste pi gli stessi di quando siete partiti E proprio quello che succede a Benji Rubin, uno studente specializzando in medicina che, volente o nolente, deve partire per l India per curare la figlia malata di epatite del direttore amministrativo dell ospedale Questo viaggio in una terra con usi e costumi diversi, dove si vive il presente senza ansie e dove tutto scorre nella quiete e nella pace pi as [...]

    I am irritated by how absorbing this book was, and I have surprised myself, ultimately, by liking it The narrator lacks morality in a profound way, acting to satisfy his own desires and thereby endangering the happiness of those close to him fuller, remarkable characters Of course, people do that all the time but this man someone so attractive on the surface doesn t even register the risk he puts to those others in his life.Ultimately, I am glad I read this book, although I am relieved to have [...]

    I didn t like the book at all, stopped reading halfway It contained too much trivial details and inner conversations which did not captivate me.

    Se ho avuto una impressione chiara della produzione di yehoshua negli anni Novanta, questo tomo di dimensioni ragguardevoli un altro tassello dell indagine del grande scrittore israeliano sulla gestione dei sentimenti, ed in particolare dell a equivoco, problematico e non in linea con un etica rassicurante.Il protagonista Benjamin Rubin, un giovanissimo medico alle prese come tanti con il precariato connaturato alle strutture sanitarie evidentemente tutto il mondo paese , e nel tentativo di rita [...]

    Lungo, ma si fa leggere senza stancare Troppo Anche se un romanzo che ho trovato in minore.Dopo la met il correttore di bozze era un po annoiato, o aveva una questione in sospeso con Abraham, cos ha cominciato ad infilare errori di stOmpa, che persino io, che leggo prevalentemente di notte e senza occhiali anche se ne avrei bisogno , riuscivo a vedere e a sentire, come le unghie sulla lavagna della mia infanzia.

  9. Cherise Wolas

    I loved The Extra and A Late Divorce by A.B Yehoshua I found this one hard to get into and hard to stay interested in and yet I was compelled to keep reading The main character, a young doctor, finds himself in love with an older married woman, and in his desire for her, puts everyone else at risk The sense that came through strongest for me is that he lacked a sense of true morality from the start For a great introduction to this acclaimed Israeli novelist, go with The Extra.

    Migliore, a mio avviso, sebbene meno originale nella struttura rispetto a L amante, questo romanzo di Yehoshua In pratica, si tratta di un lunghissimo monologo in cui Benji Rubin, aspirante medico chirurgo, ci racconta tutto di s Per certi versi, la situazione proposta analoga Anche qui abbiamo un matrimonio, un innamoramento e un amante o un tradimento, come preferite E l innamoramento, in entrambi i casi, non ha come oggetto tanto una persona, sebbene in apparenza sembri, quanto il fascino che [...]

    I ve often noticed that after an author publishes a number of books and receives high levels of acclaim, their writing will sometimes get much worse It s almost as if they become overly confident and stop listening to editors and other people they trust In my opinion, Open Heart suffers greatly from this problem Although it s the first novel of Yehoshua s that I ve read, judging by reviews, his earlier work is much stronger This is the story of a young doctor who goes to India with a hospital ad [...]

  12. Dana

    I was really torn on this one, and suspect that many of my reservations stem from it being a translated work I really thought the concept was intriguing and the scene descriptions are very vivid and romantic So, a pleasure to read in that sense But I felt that the character development was lacking and I had not real reason to believe some of the relationships that developed or the obsessive feelings that some characters had Something just didn t add up But, overall still a good work, maybe bette [...]

  13. Herzog

    I read this book for its descriptions of India, but these occurred very early in the book and were not nearly as detailed as I d hoped The rest of the book left me cold For a doctor, Benjy certainly didn t have much insight into himself.

  14. Kit

    I was hooked at first by the characters and the dark ruminative quality of the book, but by the end I was weary of it The plot didn t end so much as dissipate, and I wondered why I had hung in there until the end.

  15. Paddy

    Confession chose to stop reading it Always hoping for another Journey to the End of the Millennium, a five star novel.

  16. Vanda

    Great book for anyone coming into their own or at a cross road in their life It can be a bit depressing at times, but it s real

  17. Katie

    I tried and tried as the plotline itself is fascinating, but I couldn t make myself care about such a cynical and dry narrator.

  18. Marcia

    Worst book of our Book Club days in Hong Kong It s still talked and laughed about Purchased it at Rizolli s in NYC No one liked it

  19. Alik

    Tedious writing, unrewarding reading Other than psychologically credible characters, there is nothing this book had to offer.

  20. Reza Mahani

    I did not finish the book.The first part was amazing, mysterious.Part two was relatively dull and not engaging.I could not start the third part
