The magic of sagas is that you get to know the characters very well. This novel is too short for such narrative. The characters, are lovely, and interesting.

This is an amazing compilation which gives us insight into the mind of two ambitious men who are striving towards a goal no-one thought possible. The editors have included a short introduction before each section, which puts the correspondence within a certain context. This is important; for me it made all the difference and the book worthwhile and much more understandable….
The stories are very interesting, Mr. Katz has picked a handful of people he considered Jewish heroes (at least one is not Jewish though) and gives us some short details about their lives, what made them heroes and drawing a line between them and the biblical Jewish heroes as well as their spirit.
