Im currently a freshman and I have lived and experienced different cultures because of my dads work, I have lived in many places and travel a lot, at the International School in Houston which im currently attending we had to read this book, its truly magnificent and with no doubt my favorite book now. This book taught me many things and helped me understand history, the Jewish culture, life and basically everything you can think of. we talked about this book for a whole week in class and what it taught me is unforgettable, I would definitely suggest it to anyone that wants to engage in conversations of mainly Judaism but this book had so many themes and connections that it can be used in almost every conversation about life and human beings. I am very interested in planes and computers, and my entire life basically centers around them but this book will definitely helps you to engage in many dinner conversations with your, family, friends and relatives. I was in a rush when I wrote it but trust me its worth reading, and after you read it take some time and think of the characters please..... amazing, hope it helps u guys out there, im sure this would be the first book ill recommend to my younger brother when he is old enough for it....
