Like Dreamers, by Yossi Klein Halevi, is described in the subtitle as “The story of the Israeli paratroopers who reunited Jerusalem and divided a nation.”
When I finished the book, I remarked to my husband that “this is one of the greatest books I have ever read.”
If you are going to read one book about the State of Israel – her founding, wars, citizens, the inherent turbulence of the State, the passions and emotions of her countrymen and politicians, the divide between the Religious Zionist Settlers and Secular Socialist Kibbutzniks – this is the book to read.
Riveting, emotional, passionate, and painful, meticulously researched and masterfully written, Like Dreamers draws readers in from the first word, to the very last.
“Like Dreamers is quite simply the best book about modern Israel I have ever read” [Jonathan Rosen, author of Joy Comes In The Morning, as quoted on the back flap].
