4.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating portrait of opulence, 12 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found the descriptions of the lifestyle that the author and her family lived fascinating. The pictures she paints make it all seem so real The sheer grandeur of it all is way beyond most people's comprehension. Then she talks of Jews and others having to leave Egypt with absolutely nothing. She says that, although her parents could take goods, they weren't allowed to take any of their vast fortune of money with them. However, there always seems to be money for renting large houses and for foreign holidays. I feel that her idea of "nothing" is rather at odds with mine. For all that I found it a very entertaining book from the historical point of view.

If this was a novel then it would be rather unbelievable. However, it is a true story about a web of lies and deceipt in a huge family, all seemingly terrified of the matriarch, and the ultimate reuniting of two sisters.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not like the originals, 24 Jan. 2014

These may look the same as the one we used to buy in the supermarkets but they are definately not. They are thin, puny bendy, easily broken rubbish. I am totally dissappointed.

Not at all what I expected, I thought it would be more about animals than it is. Quite interesting, though, for all that.
