    This is a nice book with a pleasant story I know that sounds like faint praise and it kind of is The transitions between voices are abrupt and sometimes took me a page to realize that the perspective had changed sometimes the changes were even on the same page without any formatting division at least on the kindle There are a lot of books out there that give the story of generations of Jewish immigrants becoming Americans and while this tells a good story it is not one of the best While this is a work of fiction I felt that some of the history in the book was a little different than experiences I have heard from Jewish and American families It would make a good support book for someone interested in the process of immigrants.

    One American Dream by Bernard Beck is yet another book on its way to becoming a bestseller about the futile pursuit of living the American dream This time the protagonists are neither African Americans nor Latin Americans, but second and third generations of Jews coming from Poland and struggling to find success and happiness What bothers me the most about this book is the style It is so poorly written There are multiple voices in the novel, each chapter being told from the perspective of a different character, but in fact there is no real difference between the perspectives Hence, what the readers perceive is not the story being told from multiple perspectives, but one narrator struggling to create the impression of multiplicity Overall, this book is an unsuccessful struggle to portray the American dream and it reminded me of another struggle, a little mundane and actual Make America great again or, better yet, make America Great Britain again To read my full review, please feel free to access my blog,

    The story is average, writing style not too bad but I liked some really deep ideas thoughts sentences that will stay with me for a long long time.I like having a character to root for in books and this one didn t have any but nevertheless I liked this book and recommended to my friend Also learned a lot of tidbits about Judaism as a bonus.

    I loved this book It is so thoughtful, and emotionally engaging I loved this unique perspective on Jewish culture and the historical aspect of coming to America in the 1890 s and living through to the 1930 s The story follows this family as they learn to communicate and relate to one another based on generational differences and cultural influences It is full of heart and I loved every page

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book, especially since it brought back memories of growing up in a second generation immigrant family Today, when there is so much anti immigrant sentiment around, this book provides an accurate depiction of the highs and lows of the process of immigrant assimilation into the greater American society There is a universality about the entire complex adaptation process, from learning the language, establishing boundaries within families, the difficulties in finding employment, developing interpersonal and romantic relationships, etc The Jewish backdrop with its the tensions between the different forms of Judaism provides a graphic illustration of the forces and contradictions that the Rubin s face The characters of Rosie, Mr Rubin and Ruthie are especially nicely developed and some of the smaller vignettes the interaction with Judge Heimlich, the meeting with Harry s parents, Ruthie s struggles to be an author, etc are also nicely placed and structured Looking forward to from this author.
