I just reread "A Tale of Two Sisters" because my teenage granddaughter is coming for Shabbos Chanukah. She is a very picky reader and I wanted to make sure I would have at least one book she would enjoy. Well, it was a mistake to pick it up because I couldn't put it down (even though I knew the outcome) and now I will have to stay up all night to get ready for Shabbos!
i luvd this book! it was so well written and so interesting! im using it for my book report due 2mrw, and im sure im gonna get a good grade cuz im using the best book out there. its rlly amazing cuz i cud rlly relate to many characters, esp 2 ahuva's students since im a 10th grader... thanks 4 such a good read!
I could not put the book down. I found the story captivating and couldn't wait to see how the story would unfold. Thank you Adeena
Really good book.
Thank you so much!
I have known Adeena Lieber since she was a young girl. She is a keen observer of life and shows tremendous insight into people. This book reflects those qualities very well. I was prepared for a typical, flully little "Jewish" novel but found the dialogue and story line very compelling. I honestly couldn't put it down. Go Adeena! And new readers: get ready to enjoy a great read!
I haven't written a book report since high school! But at least no one will mark me on this one (I hope).
I think this book belongs in every (normal) Jewish home. For the young veibele, for the teenage daughters, for the visiting einiklach. And even for the man of the house. Everyone can identify with at least one character! And it leaves you wanting more, which I think is the mark of a good book.
Do these reviews go anywhere other than this page? I think they would be helpful for the general public
Think before reading this book. This book portrays life in a tremendously honest way. Be careful though, it doesn't end the way you might assume or possibly desire....
This book is a blast! EVERYONE I know is reading it! My Mom likes it, too!
I am so disappointed with the latest reviews. Are we reviewing a book, or defending it? And the spelling! It makes one wonder about the caliber of English instruction in our Bais Yaakovs.
As far as the book itself is concerned, it is a pleasant way to while away a few lazy hours. - but really, who has time for that? Or should have time for that? For myself (and any other intelligent adult) I would not rate it at all, but I would be more indulgent towards a teenager. For her, I would rate it five stars. It is fun, clean, and not poorly written..
