A Critical Case” ’93″Murder Duet: If you are interested in “psychologically astute mysteries set in Israel” this is the book and series by Batya Gur for you.
Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Gur puts tons of stories into her kjbutz but doesn’t develop them into full sub plots, it’s like dn too much to read and not enough to read at the same time. I liked the story overall, but I felt that Ms. Sep 29, Susan added it Shelves: In both cases you should know how to switch cookies back on!
So I think the plotting was plausible just not very innovative from the point of view of the series. 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. In many ways it needed a good editor; it seemed very slow at first — the murder doesn’t even happen kibbutz the reader is almost to pages in — but then I got into the rhythm kibuyz figured that it was because of its very setting that it is slower.
Gur spent too much time both protesting that an outsider could not understand kibbutz life and then explaining the philosophy of that same life. Die Gestalten bleiben blass! This was a fascinating book because of its setting and the details about Israeli Kibbutz history. 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. I feel the only real thread is the murder and everything else is just bits of cotton lying around being too short to sew anything with.
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 had some problems with overly detailed backgrounds, and how clues were revealed in a bunch near the end of the book. Jul 18, Ilana rated it really liked it.
While I didn’t find the murder mystery terribly absorbing, I was fascinated by the details of kibbutz society.
Murder on a Kibbutz
Three is the top mark I give to mysteries. At its best, Gur’s prose is a lucid description kibuyz the “egalitarian elitism” that prevails in such enclosed communities, where the details of everyday life are given immense, overt ideological weight. Thank goodness there is so much more available today.
This book is as much about the insular society of an Israeli kibbutz as it is about Inspector Michael Ohayon solving a murder. Loved the descriptions of life on a kibbutz in Israel however.
Asesinato En El Kibbutz : Batya Gur :
This was my second foray into Batya Gur’s wonderful portraits of murder mysteries in Israel. But i found this one particularly confusing, in terms of being able to keep track of the myriad of characters woven into the story of life on the kibbutz, disrupted by murder. I wish in the end we learned what happened to the kibbutz after the murder was solved; perhaps it would be too complicated.
The close-up view of modern life in kibbutzim interested me; the sleuthing was paced nicely as the mystery grew but I found the ending flat and without interest. Like this linepeople imprison themselves in the reality they invent. Slow to warm to it, but I’m getting through it. Batya Gur passed away 19 Marchat age These days most news from Israel concern the struggle between Jews and Arabs.
And this gives a good idea why. Entertaining and instructive on Kibbutz life and history. 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.
Anche questo personaggio diventa meno che marginale nel prosieguo del racconto. 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. Want to Read saving….
