El último judío
Bama rated it did not like it Oct 30, Life was very local back then. Instead, Yonah has good fortune wherever he goes and he generally fails to thank God for keeping an eye on him.
Book ratings by Goodreads. Noah Gordon is an American novelist.
I was also pleased by the Christians he encountered who were opposed to the Inquisition and its intolerance because they remembered a Spain that was very different. Roma rated it did not like it Apr 10, Yonah’s intelligence and resourcefulness are very admirable. An entertaining book, nice setting in the Inquisition Spain, but quite predictable, it made me think that I have read too many historical novels and now nothing surprises me GRRM destroyed our “plot twist” expectancies too.
Not only is the historical piece interesting, the character himself, Yonah, is interesting, forced to try his hand at whatever gainful opportunity presents itself.

Learned a lot about a time period I don’t know much about plus can’t see that much has changed from the 15th and 21st Centuries I’d like to read this book on Kindle Don’t have a Kindle? Ernesto rated it it was ok Sep 30, Ich konnte keinen richtigen Bezug zu ihm aufbauen, kam er mir doch immer nur wie ein Abenteurer vor, nicht aber wie ein Verfolgter durch die katholische Kirche.
May 09, Michal rated it liked it Shelves: This is very appropriate if the expulsion gofdon the Jews from Spain is to be regarded as metaphorically similar to being swallowed by a whale.
The year is and the royal decree has gone out that all Jews in Spain must be out in three months. For example, the only actions the mother of Ines, a young women in whom of course! It is written in a friendly, easy-to-follow language, and it leaves us with many noag about discrimination, courage, love, and the human spirit.
This is one of the best books I’ve read in a while.
Although it is interesting to plunge into the daily life of Jews who were expelled from Spain in the 15th century, the adventures of the protagonist are far too predictable. Even if it got a little pat in plac I read The Physician by this same author years ago and bits and pieces have come back at odd times jydio haunt me.
