    PDF Naomi Alderman  PDF Disobedience eBook × Â cravenjobs.co.uk disobedience kindle, Disobedience eBookFirst I am a horrible person I bought this book because the idea of Rachel McAdams and Rachel Weisz romance shorted my brain That said this managed to hit all of the predictable boxes of a mainstream ueer narrative circa 1995 forbidden love religious pressure even hubby is a prominent religious figure in the community oh noes while also being an utter cop out on lesbianism Ronit spends a lot of the book even the final page with a dude Esti stays with her religious hubby because of a pregnancy we can see coming from Proxima Centauri but it's okay because he totally supports her in telling everyone in the community that she's a lesbian She just can't act on it Whoakay then Meanwhile we get rambling monologues from Ronit that sound totally like that hipCatherine Zeta Jones character in The Haunting who drop

    PDF Naomi Alderman  PDF Disobedience eBook × Â cravenjobs.co.uk disobedience kindle, Disobedience eBookSometimes a book comes along that you just click with Sometimes you can't even fully explain why Its strange for me to favourite a book that I don't resonate with in some way but this book is just so well written has such a soft warm essence and is such a pleasure to sink into Disobedience is an unexpected yet delightful new friend I took my time with it and relished every page

    PDF Naomi Alderman  PDF Disobedience eBook × Â cravenjobs.co.uk disobedience kindle, Disobedience eBookThe only force that pushed me to read this book was the trailer of its film adaptation starring the two Rachels Weisz and McAdams Only having a vague idea that this included lesbianism one of my favourite topics in the Orthodox Jewish community—deducing from the nicely made trailer—I was surprised with how this came across as lesbophobic Sadly while I found the religious aspect strong and educational even going at length to detail some Orthodox Jewish practices and beliefs and how these could be stifling and limiting to women; so when one's identitysexuality is repressed it fell short as a good lesbian representation It focused mostly on men and religious politics particularly Dovid and even when it talked about the nature of Esti and Ronit's relationship these women were still concerned about a certain man Talk about Bechdel fail One of the women's intention was also murky and ambiguous it was hard to believe how her character did a 360 degree

    PDF Naomi Alderman  PDF Disobedience eBook × Â cravenjobs.co.uk disobedience kindle, Disobedience eBookFor the most part I enjoyed reading Disobedience but it's one of those books that's somehow greater than the sum of its parts I was having a hard time putting my finger on what exactly was working for me about this because when I started to pick it apart I realized there wasn't a whole lot to praise It wasn't the writing certainly which I found rather sophomoric on that in a minute; it wasn't the plot which was uite paint by numbers; and it wasn't the characters who were pretty flat archetyp

    PDF Naomi Alderman  PDF Disobedience eBook × Â cravenjobs.co.uk disobedience kindle, Disobedience eBookInteresting and some of the parts are certainly thought provoking but overall Alderman's writing just doesn't agree with me I loved the exploration of some of the customs in that particular conservative Jewish community that the story is set in I loved the juxtaposition of Ronit's thoughts on her own life which is messy but in which she is herself and Ronit's former life which seemed to be dominated by conformity and submission It’s difficult to work out the meaning of life in Hendon I mean it’s difficult to work it out for yourself rather than allowing other people to tell you Because in Hendon there are plenty of people just dying to explain the meaning of life to you I guess that’s true in New York too but in New York everyone seems to disagree with everyone else ab

    PDF Naomi Alderman  PDF Disobedience eBook × Â cravenjobs.co.uk disobedience kindle, Disobedience eBookWhat a stunning book I've been wanting to read it since I saw the film version earlier this year which I liked uite a lot Books about religion and the struggle with it are of particular interest to me since it's a subject in my own writing And this book is definitely one of the best of the few out there that really dive into the topicPerhaps it's not a surprise that it's a book about a community of orthodox Jews as there's much of a literary tradition around Jewish life than most other religions in the Western world But what Alderman does here is really amazing particularly with a first novel Structurally and emotionally it's very powerful Alderman walks the fine tightrope that I always want in this kind of book but so rarely get she manages to examine and respect both belief and non belief She is able to see clearly the ways in which a heavily patriarchal community can damage women while not throwing the entire thing out
