    One thought on “Sulha”

    1. Sulha is a gorgeous story which gives the reader a detailed personal experience in the day in the life of a Bedouin family. Sulha is a powerful word meaning"forgiveness" both in Hebrew and in Arabic. Sulha is also a ritual or a method of resolving disputes which is still being used in many countries in the Middle East. The Sulha ritual allows clan-based disputes reach a reconciliation between the extended families where the legal system or law cannot resolve. I was moved by this book and enjoyed [...]

    2. This is fascinating look into the lives of Bedouins. It is told through the voice of a young Jewish woman who has lost her love and who is brought to htese people . It is a hard book to find but so interesting and so beautifully written.

    3. I feel a little bad about this, but I do not feel as positive about this book as many other readers. Although I learned a lot from reading Sulha, it was not an entirely enjoyable read. The book was often repetitive and far too detailed and wordy. The author over-examined many things, and because of that, I grasped and absorbed the difficult and lengthy content, but it also made it more of a task than a pleasure to read. I really loved learning about the traditional lives of the Bedouin people th [...]

    4. It is often proposed that if one could just be in the others' shoes for the briefest moment all conflict may cease to exist. We see empathy conquer discord in personal relationships; we see apathy energized into action by an infusion of passionate desire, to understand a different perspective. Each of these things leads to a new way. a new view a new approach a new heart, full of compassion. Malka Marom has achieved all of the above, in her remarkable debut novel, "Sulha". Marom traveled across [...]

    5. One of the best novels I have read in many years. A big story of loss, and redemption, from a writer that is part of the "Israeli Diaspora". There are many insights into the cultures of arabs and jews, placed in the years just before the Egypt-Israel Camp David peace agreement. Malka's writing has a "magical realism" quality, as the setting in the Sinai dessert among Bedouins, is exotic and gritty at the same time. You can feel the blowing sand in your face, and the parched thirst in your throat [...]

    6. Very interesting novel about the traditional lives of the Bedouin in the Sinai peninsula, caught in the Arab-Israeli conflict, and told from the point of view of an Israeli war widow who goes to live with them. I wish I knew how much of the traditions and attitudes she describes is accurate. Still very well worth reading and beautifully written.
