4.0 out of 5 stars Unknown World, Jacob Needleman, 12 Nov 2012

A thoughtful and unusual perspective on the probably only effective way we need to relate to the planet for us to have any effect on its current desperate situation.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Boy and the Cloth of Dreams, 12 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book would have been better titled by the publisher "Introduction to Funds", as the current title which includes the term "Fund Administration" lead's the reader to believe there the this book actually covers the business process of a fund administrator, which this book definitely does not....

The first surprise, is that a half the book is actually just a dictionary of various financial terms which are better looked up on [...] It is beyond me why anyone atually bothers to publish such information,

The rest of the the book simply talks about what funds are, what the difference between a mutual fund and a hedge fund is (that sort of thing... )

The one star rating I gave is for Chapter (6) which is only 10 pages long and which actually talks about the what a Fund Administrator actually does.

the information is hardly worth the $75 I paid for this book.

This review is from: The Wilderness (Hardcover)
What an original, perceptive, compassionate writer. Original in her writing style. Perceptive of her characters. 'I could not put it down', as they say and for once it was true.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 27 Nov 2011

This review is from: The Prague Cemetery (Hardcover)
Very disapointing, dull writing, too long, rather pseud, over-egged, no heart, all head. Clever of course. Somehow expected better from him.

4.0 out of 5 stars unusual coming of age, 14 Nov 2010

This review is from: The Zig Zag Kid (Paperback)
This early book by the great Israeli writer, David Grossmann, is a delightful original fun book about a host of wild adventures planned for 'the zig zag kid' as a rite of passage just before his bar-mitzvah but beneath the story line a warm enlightening picture of family relationships, love and understanding and tolerance and acceptance.
