Format: Paperback
A truly lovely book that held my attention from start to finish. Tells the tale of a young Jewish man's survival during the time of the Inquisition in 15th Century Spain. Provides a great insight into the brutality and injustices of that era, whilst simultaneously telling a tender and heart-warming story.

Format: Paperback
I knew I was hooked after reading the first few pages.

One travels the long road with a young Jew, who, ever mind full of his Religion must remain constantly on his guard from over zealous Christians.

Remember "The Fugitive" with Harrison Ford, being pursued by a Police Force for a crime he did not commit? Here we have the story of a Young boy on the run from a Nation.

Prior to period of mass expulsion of all Jews from Spain they held a special relationship with the King of Spain & viewed with hostility by the Non-Jews of the common people and the rest, as they say is History.. When the opportunity arose to vent their fury on a race of people...

I've read all Gordon's books so far and haven't been disappointed. The Last Jew is excellent, again! I hope the author keeps busy writing a new book - I read this one in just two days and am hungry for more!

Format: Paperback
As a Sephardi Jew, I found the book particularly interesting, as it brought home to me how it was for my ancestors 500 years ago, in a very real sense (not that different I suspect for those Jews in Europe 60 years ago!)
The story line kept me interested throughout the book, with no "flat spots".
I was hungry for more when I finished - but unfortunately no sequal as far as I am aware (nor could I actually see one match the first book).

Having recently found out that my surname is Toledano after 74yrs &having visited Toledo last year with my family.It was confirmed
by Geneolagy back to 1592 that is where we came from.So the book was a real journey for me apart from being a great read.

This book was very easy to read and I was pleasantly surprised by the ending which was not what I really expected. I ordered this as an introduction to books by Noah Gordon and will certainly read more of them.

After reading The Physician I was prepared for The LastJew to be somewhat of a let down. Not so. After wading through the first two chapters trying to absorb the characters and their names, hard enough with English names let alone Spanish names,the book blossomed into a spellbinding journey of intrigue and excitement, of which Noah Gordon is truly the master. Having spent much time in Spain it was wonderful to recognise names and places of which I am familiar and follow a young mans journey during the terrifying time of the Spanish Inquisition. Truly a masterpiece. Come on Noah Gordon, print La Bodega in English!

It was an interesting book which I felt captured the tensions and fears of the violent end of the hundreds of years of Moorish rule in the Iberian peninsula.
