This is an odd little book that alternates from poetry to prose from being a novel to adding autobiographic detail.

I received this book today from Amusedbythis to give away at the 2007 International Day of the Book festival in Kensington, Maryland.

I'm going to cheat. I'm pulling this book out of the "books to be given away at the festival pile" for several reasons. One is that Amos Oz is one of my favorite authors. Another is that a friend of mine was just looking for this book, and I really, really want to surprise her with it. May I, Amusedbythis? If she promises to return it to me? I might later give it away or send it out on a bookray. Either way, I'm not yet ready to release it.

Thank you so much for sending it to me!

The book is going home tonight with my friend from Catonsville, Maryland. She probably won't journal it, but I'll try to get it back at a later date and move it on to others who want to read it. Thanks, Amusedbythis!

I was right. My friend wouldn't journal this book, but did read it and said she liked it. I have another friend in mind who might like to read it. the book is now back in my possession.

I am giving this book today to my friend in Cabin John, Maryland. She liked one other Amos Oz book I gave her and wanted to read more writing by this author.

I selected this book from the Little Free Library of Twinbrook (#7720) to travel elsewhere...

Journal Entry 11 by wingSqueakyChuwing at Rockville, Maryland USA on Thursday, November 02, 2017
I read another copy of this book in 2007. This is what I wrote after I read it...

Here's a poignant story of one family, each member or acquaintance trying as hard as possible to establish control of his life. That's not always as easy to achieve as it seems. The novel describes, in both in prose and poetry, how several people try to achieve that end. The novel slips so easily from prose into poetry and vice versa, that even readers who are not particularly interested in poetry may not mind this writing technique. Although it's a melancholy story, it's also an intriguing look at how several people relate to one another and how their goals at some times in their lives tend to either attract or repel others close to them. At one point, the author himself shows up as a character! That is really an interesting occurrence and a situation not often encountered in most novels.

THE SAME SEA is not hard to read. However, because of the style in which it is written, it would lend itself to being read more than once. For sure, it deserves to be read at least a first time!
