This is actually a really well written book but it's too heavy for me to read right now. I will return and finish at a later time. ( )

People of the Book is a wonderfully written book of historical fiction in which the author relates many events of the dark and unhappy history of the Jewish people while presenting an engaging account about a possible history of a noted artifact. The research is thorough and deep, yet Brooks presents it so well that the reader is drawn to the story line much more that to the incredible quality of the research.
I have read other books where the author loses sight of the idea that, above all, he must tell an interesting story and falls instead into impressing the reader with the depth of the author's research. Brooks avoids this pitfall and presents what amounts to a collection of short stories that tell of major events in world history. By creating characters as they face those events, Brooks presents human stories told in historical contexts and creates a wonderful novel. ( )

This book was well-written and is interesting, but I am having a hard time finishing it because the violence is a little much for me - torture, rape, etc. I can't say I like it although if it weren't for those graphic parts, it would be very good. I am sure it is accurate in what was happening during that time, but I was unaware this was the period she was describing or I wouldn't have picked it up.

Finished it - it was pretty good except those parts mentioned above. All in all perhaps I should give it a 3 start rating, because I liked most of it. ( )

For my tastes in story structure, Geraldine Brooks made the classic mistake of derailing the reader's attachment developing with the main character (Hanna) and what the first 40 or so pages of the book indicate is the primary story. While the interleaved accounts in alternating chapters developed the Haggadah's backstory, these stand alone narrative excursions interfered with the tension of the ongoing story, and were extreme flights of speculation. Had these sections been condensed with the novel, keeping a focus on the codex's conservation, the potential backstory of the Sarajevo Haggadah would have been more effective.

Amid the politics between museums, the narrative floundered around telling why the Sarajevo Haggadah acquired a reputation as a groundbreaking codex due to it being illustrated etc. etc. So why wouldn't the story open with this aspect as a theme and tell the reader about the earlier travels and mysteries of the codex? Then the main 'present-day' tale could move forward seamlessly as part of the historical back story of the people who possessed the book through time (but more condensed with the the narrative of Hanna and her involvement)?

While Brooks apparently had a different agenda for her story, the published work came across as a meandering mishmash, with no real connections flowing between the changing story focus. The final letdown was the last six years of Hanna's life condensed out of the blue and then she's snatched back into the drama around the Haggadah in the final chapters. This last section was like reading a totally different book, especially since I was left with a sense of a rushed but fizzled completion. ( )

Excellent!

While peering through a microscope at a rime of salt crystals on the manuscript of the Haggadah, Hanna reflects that “the gold beaters, the stone grinders, the scribes, the binders” are “the people I feel most comfortable with. Sometimes in the quiet these people speak to me.” Though the reader’s sense of Hanna’s relationship with the Haggadah rarely deepens to such a level, Geraldine Brooks’s certainly has.
 
Brooks' novel meticulously, lovingly amalgamates mystery and history with the personal story of its heroine, rare-book expert and conservator Hanna Heath.
 
If Brooks becomes the new patron saint of booksellers, she deserves it. The stories of the Sarajevo Haggadah, both factual and fictional, are stirring testaments to the people of many faiths who risked all to save this priceless work.

The words stuck to his tongue like...the ashes that had fallen in a warm rain after the last book burning.
I wanted to give a sense of the people of the book, the different hands that had made it, used it, protected it.  I wanted it to be a gripping narrative, even suspenseful.
