This was a wonderful book about two Jewish boys during the time of WW II. It shows the struggles of a young man trying to come to terms with his own goals and desires and the expectations of his family, while emphasizing the value of friendship and the ability to overcome differences in beliefs.

Excellent book. At points a emotional rollercoaster -- cried, angry at the father's way, etc. Opened a door to a world I am not familar with. Some of the dialog lost me, not knowing Yiddish or Hebrew. Most of the time it was explained but not always. Definitely worth the time to read.

I just re-read this book and loved it again. I first read it in 1968 - Yikes! Anyway it is still a really interesting peek into a life style that many of us know little about. And if you think its dated just drive through the Mintwood section of Brooklyn!
