Comments The Five Books of Moses Lapinsky

  1. I ll compare this book to a 3 D puzzle The author tells the current situation then adds some background information which helps explain the current situation She does it several times and I thought it led to a interesting read The novel is a biography of a family, primarily during the first half of the twentieth century beginning with the flight to Canada in 1913 by Yakov Lapinsky following a progrom in Russia He meets up with a cousin in Toronto and they become peddlers Yakov marries and he an [...]



  2. The Five Books of Moses Lapinsky is no Bible It is rather a family saga in the likes of Howard Fast or Mario Puzo This is the story of the Lapinsky family The five books and an epilogue each contain an introduction by the narrator, one Moses Lapinsky, a learned historian, who wishes to record the tale of his father, Sonny, a world famous Jewish Canadian boxer This highly entertaining novel traces the remarkable fortunes and misfortunes of four generations of the Lapinsky family Most of our story [...]


  3. Awesome awesome awesome I ve read her columns in Xtra West, and only recently found out from a co worker that she s a novelist, too I saw this sitting in the recommended reads section at the library, and the librarians did not let me down.The storyline centers around a Jewish boxer living in Toronto during the second world war I m not Jewish, I don t know anything about boxing, and I m a west coast girl that s not into war, yet this book and the family it s about drew me in so much I ended up fi [...]


  4. Absolutely fascinating, Ms Tulchinsky must have done years of research on the History of Toronto, the Christie Pit riots I live about a 5 minute walk from there the warmly woven history of a Jewish family in the turn of the century Toronto, the struggles to fit into this Anglo Saxon society, that Italians and Jews often stuck together as the outcasts The Prize fighter who learned how to survive by any means, unfortunately his personal relationships did not work out too well.Lest I give the whole [...]


  5. I wasn t into this book until I sat down with it for hours and got into the middle part The characters were well developed and the action sequences were seamless The story seemed to go on forever, though, and I was interested and invested in the minor characters I recommend it to people because of my attachment to one of the characters, not because of the book as a whole, if that makes sense.


  6. This book got me stoked on reading novels again I want to recommend it to all of my friends It is an excellent way to learn about the Christie Pitts riots in Toronto and about some world war II stuff without having to sit through a really dry boring war novel SUCH A GREAT BOOK


  7. I had never heard of this book, and actually bought it at a thrift store for a buck Well worth the money I loved the historical references to the war, and even the simple day to day life of the characters I couldn t put it down, once I got into it which didn t take too long.


  8. This book is completely unlike her other works, which I have enjoyed Truly evokes a time, place and era Her descriptions of the men, their emotional limits and frustrations were especially thought provoking.



  9. If I could give it than 5 I would Probably best book I ve ever read Spans 3 generations of immigrants struggling with racism, violence and the depression.



  10. This book is brilliant The story lines are compelling and I fell in love with every character Amazing Everyone should read this book.


  11. I m glad I took the time to read this book This book was really touching It had a lot of heart and soul.Sonny Lapinsky is my new favorite anti hero.
