If you've never read Lionel Davidson don't start with this. Atmospheric and spiritual, it is a book for a fan, not a newcomer.
A worthwhile read but for those prone to think the Six Day War didn't relate to beetroot production, maybe a challenge too far.
This is an absolutely charming book.
If only the powers that be on both sides in the Middle East would read it
perhaps we would have some real peace over there.
It has the makings of a wonderful Disney movie.
The book was fine, and met my expectations. Faster shipping would be most welcome.
This author is one of my favorites. I have almost all his books. But this time I was sorely disappointed. Smiths Gazelle did not interest me. I could not read it. I am sorry, because I truly like L. Davidson.
Smith's Gazelle succeeds on many levels - as the story of Bedu and kibbutzim co-existing as children, fighting as adults; as the story of an endangered specie whose fragile durability is emblematic of the shared hopes of the common people in disputed land; as a story of conservation and nature. Davidson writes with genius from the points of view of a crazed Bedouin shepherd without a nose, of a nine year old Bedouin boy, of a nine year old Israeli boy. His love for his story and its people shines through, and the story moves with a briskness which is rare in something so well-written. It's a hugely good book.
It has been more than a decade since I read Lionel Davidson's Smith's Gazelle, but I remember it as a delight. Davidson, an Englishman and an Israeli, sets his story in Israel, as his protagonists collaborate with an Israeli officer in trying to locate a rare species of gazelle that they are not sure even still exists. It is hard to convey what makes this book such a delight. More economically plotted that Davidson's earlier novels (Rose of Tibet, etc.), and offering fewer "thrills" and dangers, it nevertheless may be the best of this master storyteller's works.
This is a lovely, wistful fantasy, that never fails to move me; I read it about once a year, since I first discovered it almost 20 years ago. I can only wonder who has the screen rights to this humorous, touching, book.
