An Israeli friend of mine first recommended Uris--particularly his The Haj, about Arab/Israeli relations, and I remember liking that novel. Maybe it's that my tastes have changed, or just that this was one of Uris' first novels, but my impression of this one is that it had the materials to be a grip...
Too much war and politics for my reading taste. And it's a bit one-sided, holy moly. Jews good, Arabs bad. Jews good, British bad. Jews good, everyone else bad. Puh-leeeeeeze. There's good and bad in EVERYone. Glad to be finally finished with this one. Self-important books are not my thing...
Even though I was caught up in the book when I first read it, I had to leave it halfway through... and when I went back to it some years later, after learning more about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict (not the American-Israeli fiction, but real history), I felt I couldn't read it, it was so nausea...
Another influential book on my youth.
