I Am the Clay

Still wading through a collection of books given to me by a friend and lapsed bookcrosser, some of them registered.
I have loved other novels written by Asher Lev, so I hope to read this before release.

I have to confess I have not read anything by Chaim Potok until this book, my loss. This is a masterpiece. Using his lyrical poetic prose, Potok describes the horror and hardship of war. The first half of the story is slightly reminiscent of 'The Road' by Cormac McCarthy (although very dark, it is a favourite of mine) which describes the aftermath of the purely fictional apocalypse, Potok's is based on reality. I couldn't help but feel that what Potok was describing was something that millions of unfortunate people have felt and endured for thousands of years in all the wars that mankind has waged. This is truly one of the most extraordinary books I've ever read.
