Chaim Potok

I would just like to say thank you to whoever's blog it was I was reading who recommended the book My Name is Asher Lev, its brilliant, I am now looking forward to reading the sequel. In the meantime I want to look up several of the Jewish references with which I am unfamilier. Having been for the last week in an area without internet I was unable to do this whilst reading the novel.


  1. Ohh...I'll have to check this out when I have some reading time!

  2. My name is Asher Lev - really a great book! Loved it! I already took 2 other Potok-novels at our local library and I'll read them soon:)
    Ciao from Italy

    1. Hi Helga, I have now read the sequel and it is just as good, I have also just finished The Chosen also by Potok, it had me in tears.

    2. Debbie, I took them in Italian at the library ("Il dono di Asher Lev" and "Danny l'eletto") but I think they are just the two books you are talking about:) Happy that they are just as good as the first one!!!
