Wish I could give 4 stars, maybe I will later on: And because in many ways, it is like investigating an extended family in which something has happened. In many ways it needed a good editor; it seemed very slow at first — the murder doesn’t even happen until the reader is almost to pages in — but then I got into the rhythm and figured that it was because of its very setting that it is slower This is a very interesting read and clearly shows the difference in books written here and books authored in other countries.

Apr 20, Joyce Lagow rated it did not like it Shelves: Der Fall ansich hat sich etwas verwickelt dargestellt.

The ideology does not match the reality of the characters’ behavior. For example, at loot. And when investigating murder, it takes times to gain an understanding to the ways of the kibbutz, as the main character Michael Ohayon finds out. Idealism does exist, as do a shared lifestyle and strong community feeling–but one als Murder mysteries wear many faces.

I think I liked this so much I read another in the series but I can’t name a detail from this novel. So I think the plotting wsesinato plausible just not very innovative from the point of view of the series.

Il personaggio principale, il zsesinato capo Michael Ohayon incaricato di risolvere il caso, sembra essere protagonista suo malgrado, Gur non gli regala lo spazio che dovrebbe e potrebbe. That would be my only regret about reading this book.

He seems rather nondescript in this one, I expected his history background to come into use at some point and I want to know how Eli and Kibitz are getting on with their baby but apart from a brief mention of Michael’s son there’s very little continuity o.

Postscript 7 June 22 ‘ Anthony Award Nominee for Best Novel The recurring character of Michael doesn’t add very much to the books. This one surrounds intrigue in the supposedly idyllic setting of a kibbutz, a voluntary commune society that was integral to the formation to the State of Kbiutz. It added nothing as far as I could see except to lessen my ideas of Avigail. May 19, Roxane rated it really liked it Shelves: Gur spent too much time both protesting that an outsider could not understand kibbutz life and then explaining the philosophy of that same life.

Batya Gur’s unnamed kibbutz, somewhere in the southern coastland of Israel, is believably drawn having stayed in one in the very same area, home to a cousin, I can personally vouch for that. She did this primarily in interactions between Michael the chief investigating officer and Nahari his boss. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. The old generation of kibbutz founders, which remembers British rule, the Holocaust and the war to establish Israel, is fading from the scene, and communal living, kibbutz style, may itself be eroding.

I spent several years studying literature in college, which subject included American, British and a few continental writers. It’s older, so many of the issues are outdated as kibbutzim become privatized. Fascinating – though you do get the impression that the author is not a big fan of the Kibbutz life style Jan 28, Janey Skinner added it. The themes of who can really ‘belong’ on a kibbutz — or any group –if not born there or into it an addition to the plot that was thought-provoking.

I think Avigail is an interesting person, the policewoman who is working undercover as a nurse, but I hold out no great hope of seeing her in the next book.

Very engaging main character, Michael Ohayon. Cookies are little nuggets of information that web servers store on your computer to make it easier for them to keep track of your browsing session. It brought back memories.

There was also a passage later in the story with Avigail on the phone. Aug 31, Sally marked it as to-read Recommended to Sally by: Nearly everyone on the kibbutz seems unlikeable, Moish and Dave are the only two I can recall thinking were ok, but on the whole they are quite an interesting bunch to read about.

An interesting view of kibbutz society in the ‘s. When the expiry date is reached your computer deletes the cookie. I think it’s hard, without knowing anything about a kibbutz, to know if the relationships between the kibbutz members are realistic but they feel quite realistic to me and they certainly seem more real than Michael’s relationships with his colleagues.

However, this book was part of a series and readers who start at the beginning most probably know who all these multiple players are and why they reappear here. From the standpoint ofthe way that the occupation and the first intifada lay in the deep background is disconcerting. Sometimes, we also use a cookie to keep track of your trolley contents. I don’t remember any of the characters other than Michael appearing before and I didn’t find him as interesting as in previous books.

The 3rd in the Michael Ohayon series, set in Israel. Reading this reminded me of the long ago day when I first read Hallidore Laxness. Lives are so intertwined that tensions which might lead to this are quickly detected and resolved.

Makes you want to be a police detective. In both cases you should know how to switch cookies back on! Jun 05, Ms H rated it really liked it Shelves: They not only give you a different slant on the country and its modern history, but will intrigue you with personal dramas, police work, and the solving of mysteries by her police detective, Michael Ohayon. I’ve no problem with them in theory and the closed community theme was fine but it was just a bit predictable that the killer would be protecting the kibbutz from change and preserving an ideal.
