The Hill of Evil Counsel is a fusion of history and imaginative narrative re creating the twilight world of Jerusalem during the fading days of the British Mandate In these three closely linked stories Oz vividly evokes the stifling atmosphere of impending crisis as real personalities rub shoulders with fictional characters whose hopes and fears are hauntingly portrayed

    one of the most confusing books I've ever read I still don't uite understand what I read Each of the five short stories were supposed to mesh together I tried to find the link that connected these stories and couldn't find one The first story was interesting after that though I felt like this book was a chore to get through

    This is the ninth book I've read by Amos Oz Perhaps a few months ago before his death I might have asked myself at this point haven't I had enough? And perhaps back then I might have even entertained the possibility that the answer could have potentially been a “yes” eventually And yet now when I'm suddenly faced with a very finite number of his books my anxiety over this fact has warped the uestion into how will I ever have enough? It turns out it's an altogether different experience getting so attached to an author pre rather than posthumously In an interview about his work Oz apparently said his stories were about “In one word families in two sad families” I happened to read his memoir A Tale of Love and Darkness 2002 before reading both this book The Hill of Evil Counsel 1976 and My Michael 1968 so to me both books seemed to be stories about his own sad? family and a retelling of his childhood in different ways I see his mother father grandfather and himself as a child appear as characters over and over again in his books and particularly in those two Sometimes they make a subtle ambiguous appearance sometimes they're completely recognisable underneath their new personas and sometimes they even make appearances almost as themselves for example Dr Klausner in both this book and My Michael perhaps as a hint that the story has something to do with real life? Since both The Hill of Evil Counsel and My Michael were written uite a few years before the memoir I'm also inclined to think of them as sort of run ups to it Were they written before the memoir simply because Oz didn't think anyone would be interested in a memoir from him back then? Or could it be that prior to the memoir these 2 books served as a way for Amos Oz to work through and resolve some of his childhood issuesmemories before eventually writing about them openly? If so then perhaps the characters in the books could serve as clues and hints to the things that were left unsaid in the memoir perhaps out of respect for different individuals and his relationships with them? And so I'm left wondering how much of Oz's father was in the patient gentle awkward melancholy long suffering father featured in the two books And how successful this father's attempts at compensating for his beautiful wife's depression disappointment and apathy with a weary optimism might have been in making his son's life a little happier in real life? At the end of the day does it really matter how much of it is real or not? I don't know I gave both books 3 stars because they weren't my favourite Amos Oz books and I have a strong suspicion that I wouldn't have had the patience to indulge any other author's fixations in this way

    Three linked novellas all set in a Jerusalem suburb immediately after the end of World War II as the transition to the state of Israel was beginning to gather steam Boys grow up marriages continue or don't love affairs end people get sick and die all against that larger background The last story was particularly moving written as a series of letter from a dying man to the woman he loved who has left both him and Israel behind He looks back at the events that brought him from Vienna to Israel at the past of his love for this absent woman and forward to a future he won't be alive to see a future Israel that may or may not come into being

    The book takes place in Jerusalem at the time of the beginning of the state of Israel I love his writing so much This is an earlier book and not as well written in my opinion as the later ones But stillreally beautiful Each character has a slightly different way of living within this very difficult time Which one would I have been? My understanding of the history of the Middle East at this time feels so much deeper after reading this book and Oz's other books

    I greatly enjoyed these recollections of a very tense time in Israel's history the end of the British occupation mixing nostalgia with tension and compassion for those trying to live and make a difference in the 1930s and 1940s in Jerusalem At the same time I noticed a lot of recycling of stock characters stolid intellectual men flirtatious women muddled religious mystics etc Still the richness with which the period is reproduced makes this well worth a careful read

    A collection of three interconnected stories set in Israel during the formation of the state in the 1940's after WW2 Two of the stories are those of young boys growing up in turbulent times while the final one is written as a series of letters from a dying young man to the woman he loves who has left Israel for America The second Mr Levi was my favourite of the three while the first was very dark

    This has a great name but is the same story as his later memoir Panther in the Basement Personally I preferred the later book's telling of the tale which was evocative beautiful and maybe better aged

    The storyline was good It was helpful in learning about some Israeli culture and I thought the characters were interesting It's a short story so if you're in the mood for a decent coming of age story for a boy as well as a country read it

    There is no easy way to describe this book or what it will to do you should you choose to read it For me it came at exactly the right time; reminding me that literature can sometimes also offer closure

    3 long stories set around the time of the birth of Israel Beautifully written one from a child's point of view as he tries to understand what is happening soldiers searching houses etc
