Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good Read This is the second book I've read of Erich Segal (Also read "Doctors" which was awesome). I thought it was very well written, although I found some the dialogue was hard to follow at times, there are many different quotes in other languages. Being a Roman Catholic, I found it to be very interesting reading about the Jewish religious ceremonies and beliefs. I found it very educational religious-wise and also very enjoyable with the character storylines. I will sure continue to read Erich Segal books.
