9780316954419: The Hope: A Novel

Like no other novelist at work today, Herman Wouk has managed to capture the sweep of history in novels rich in character and alive with drama. In The Hope, which opens in 1948 and culminates in the miraculous triumph of 1967s Six-Day War, Wouk plunges the reader into the story of a nation struggling for its birth and then its survival. As the tale resumes in The Glory, Wouk portrays the young nation once again pushed to the brink of annihilationand sets the stage for todays ongoing struggle for peace. Taking us from the Sinai to the Jerusalem, from dust-choking battles to the Entebbe raid, from Camp David to the inner lives of such historical figures as Golda Meir, Moshe Dayan, and Anwar Sadat, these extraordinary novels have the authenticity and authority of Wouks finest fictionand together strike a resounding chord of hope for all humanity. The first trade paperback editions of The Winds of War and War and Remembrance, Wouks epic novels of World War II, were recently released by Back Bay Books.

From AudioFile:

This novel of truly epic proportion deals with the conflict and drama of an evolving post-WWII Israel. Theodore Bikel is an ideal choice for this narrative interpretation. Dealing with numerous characters, he never misses a beat, shifting easily from one accent to another. In one scene, this listener could well imagine sitting in on an impromptu conference held in David Ben-Gurion's bedroom. While military personnel make somber predictions, Mrs. Ben-Gurion frets over the health of Israel's founding father. Production and vocal quality are superb; however, this is a ponderous work, and the minds of all but Wouk's most devoted readers may wander while listening. D.R.T. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
