    A very beautifully written book about the deterioration of love between two people punctuated with insight into the relationships of both of them from the past to the present The death of a 17 year old is the catalyst that makes them realize once the differences between them and if they still want to work and manage them so they can be together I enjoyed the imagery and the setting of the story feels very real the characters are believable I'm uite surprised with how much I still like Amos Oz I read the first book of his about 8 years ago and I'm happy I came back to him

    I am hooked on Amos Oz There is something about every book of his that I have read that leads me to read every word to the end and to enjoy it greatly without any sense of a rush to the finish I think that Mr Oz portrays very finely the long term heterosexual relationship The relationship might be marriage or might not but it is always like marriage in its exclusivity That is the couples are monogamous and live together Their relationships are complex and so are the individuals Nonetheless their lives are uiet and lived in backwaters Just look at My Michael or the mysteries of To Know a Woman I love themMr Oz also portrays the Israeli scene very finely or at least I believe he does it well never having been in Israel In any event he convincingly shows a land where people are still a type of pioneer I find this portrayal of humanity to be an excellent antidote to the typical dreary news article about events in the Middle East I am glad to receive from Mr Oz' pen the sense that we are dealing with humans on both sides of The Wall

    Israel's consensus writer and thinker Amos Oz could only hold this honorable position in Israel Not because he lacks talent; because his writing despite how lush it may get is still strange dark and uietly satirical Complexities of virtually any kind and color feel at home in Israel and therefore it makes sense that the country's leading man of letters isn't very cliché fueled He is ambiguous uestions are left unanswered in most of his books Don’t Call it Night is a bit plot less Yes there is a key event and a general storyline; but in a way that reflects the discreet motions of the desert Oz's fictional small town occupies the book moves very slowly and mysteriously I think the film Paris Texas and the book Fat City might come to mind when reading this Look elsewhere if suspense and action is your cup of teaBeautiful uiet cryptic and with a feel of eruption lurking permanently; Don’t Call it Night is a weird yet honest tourist guide to the Negev the south region of Israel

    Boring I do not know if this is because I cannot find the perfect book for me or this is because it was really boring Yes I admit that there were moments when I felt something It is a book about having to deal with everything and still remaining alive still loving the other still moving forward But the reading was hard without perspectives I did not even want to find out how the book ended I just wanted it to end and never come back to it

    Two voices an aging unsentimental brilliant man and his younger dynamic passionate wife A young student of hers over doses and his father asks her to found a re hab center This project tests and deepens the couple's relationships Amos oz always brings a strong taste of Israel into his books

    I had a hard time with it The chapters are alternately told in first person from the perspective of Noa and that of Theo with the odd chapter thrown in told in omniscient third person perspective Don’t Call it Night is definitely my least favorite of his works but I will certainly pick up of Amos Oz’ books

    For such a short book it took a while for me to get absorbed in it But it is beautifully written and beautifully felt This is the first book I've read by Oz and I will certainly read

    Don't Call It Night by Amos Oz has in common with a musical score than it does the novel form but it's written as a novel and it's a fine one despite a certain pointed pointlessness In short it's a book full of themes and motifs rich with repetitions that completes a circuit of stillness resolving nothing but ending with a certain hopeful fullness its principal characters still independently dependent upon one anotherNoa is a schoolteacher in a town in the Negev desert Theo is her companionlover fifteen years older a free lance development advisor They met in Venezuela each of them pursuing a flight from Israel and have returned to coexist in a simple way in a simple place that is complicated by a student's death by drugs suicide an accidental fall we are not entirely sureTel Kedar is the place or less planned or less lifeless as desert towns tend to be The dead boy's father on assignment in Nigeria returns and asks Noa to help him establish a kind of memorial to his son; his idea is a residential drug rehab center for addicted youthNoa wants to take this project on although Theo is better euipped to execute something this ambitious especially in the face of a community that does not want Tel Aviv's drug addicts imported to Tel KedarThus begins a very slow motion but carefully described series of pushes and pulls tracing the rhythm of Noa and Theo's commitment to one another and the larger pulsing of Israel's geography history and peoplesIronically so little happens in Tel Kedar and in the novel that Oz is able to be very precise and clear about his characters their situation and the setting In a dead little town in the Negev people have to generate constant ceremonies having tea having coffee listening to music the BBC the wind the thunder a lover's breathing and these are the almost musical passages in this textI have been in many dead little towns where nothing much happens and don't like them I'd rather be in the woods or a city But I found this novel interesting and enjoyable I particularly liked Oz varying the style of his chapters so that some are narrated by Theo some by Noa and some in the third person but from one or the other's perspective This generates a kind of intimacy and frees Oz to take care of the backstory how they both ended up in Venezuela and returned to Israel together rather neatlySo here you have not great events and a great conclusion but a prose experience sensitively rendered It is not uite tender but it is not harsh either There is something endearing about Oz's own affection for dead little towns where nothing much happens especially in the maelstrom of the Middle East which is referred to obliuely somewhat like the occasional peals of thunder with neither apologies or explanations

    One evening he said poetry is a kind of spark trapped in a piece of glass because words are pieces of glass And the other shrieks back at her you tampon you don't you dare call me filthyI recalled him during one of our first trips in Venezuela in a jeep on a dirt track running along a winding mist filled valley as he suddenly exclaimed that even if what was happening to us turned out to be love he hoped we could go on being friends And where are we meant to be shining and by whom is our shining reuired?But all she could imagine was at most a feeling of cold and silence in darkness sensations and sensations are life after all So this too has vanished Plunging to its own seabed The old woman remarked sadly Love They don't eat They don't drink Phoo and the brains go out And very often they're not even friends they don't even know each other they just get hooked on each other and the rest of the world can go jump At the ultimate limit of hearing the blind man listens to the rustling of the night because he feels that behind the layer of silence and beneath the grating of the cricket the howls of the dead a stirring faint and heartrending like mist moving through mist
