Forbidden Love

This is a wonder novel about a passion forbidden by both religion and law. The author really makes the characters come alive. I recommend it highly.

Recuing mankind within

Indeed this is a 5 star audiobook.

'The Slave' is an utmost interesting reading. Mr. Singer's accounts of the bondage created in adverse times by this 'unorthodox couple' sheds lights on modern day relationships as well. His picture of the state of life in Poland 300 years ago is a revelation. The lessons in 'The Slave' are applicable to everyone - rescuing the mankind within, struggling to keep the faith while those considered 'faithful' do not present us good reasons to do so and finding human goodness despite everything.

The narrators are almost impeccable - wish they had narrated other audiobooks.

Engrossing but oppressive.

What a heavy and claustrophobic construction of ideas they lived within! Nothing could be simple in that world.
