The Organ Builder
The Organ Builder
by Robert Cohen
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, deep, novel about - the organ and lawyers and life, 16 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Organ Builder (Hardcover)
I have been an organist for 12 years and found this book very exciting.

Wonderful book. It starts out with lawyers in New York, comes around to family background, building of nuclear bombs in New Mexico, personal misery and love stories. The organ builder part is left as a climax towards the end of the book. This part is so surprising and deep it is really worth reading the whole 288 pages. I learned a lot about pipe organs reading this novel, even though they are only briefly mentioned.

What is a home? Public space? A happy marriage? A poor man? How can we relate to each other if we separate in each our home? Great answers to these questions and many others.

The Alexander Principle should be far more known. It is great. And this book is a great introduction. Now I will turn off my computer and start using my body in a better way!

This book explains deep meanings of letters in the Hebrew Alphabet. It is an eye-opener for me who knew little about the subject. Its structure is very clear, and the author has interesting personal comments in each section.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book, 28 Jan. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is about society in the 1930s, but it is as valid today as ever. Orwell (=Eric Blair) has many sharp observations about poverty and life. Plus his writing is enjoyable and sadly bitter-sweet, for example when he describes how he simply has to shoot an elefant, despite his desire not to... highly recommended book.
