Realism at it's finest

I was truly surprised when I finished reading this. It was very realistic and heartwrenching stories. There is a true tone to each and every story. You could see yourself in the stories and they were easy to relate to. Young adults would be able to relate to the characters and the situations that they find themselves in. Each problem that the characters go through could happen everyday in society. It was refreshing to read a book for young adults that models appropriate behavior. Great book.


I thought the book, Zebra: And Other Stories was very interesting. The 6 different stories each were told very well. I recommend this book to anyone.


I've read nearly everything written by Chaim Potok and continue to be amazed as his rare insight into interpersonal relationships and spiritual growth. Yes, these stories center on the coming of age struggles of teenage protagonists, but make no mistakes this is not a children's book. The stories are full-strength celebrations of self-discovery. If you buy ONE book today . . . make it this one!

This is one of the best books I have ever read!!!

I read a lot, but very few of the books I have read have touched me the way this one did. The varied stories kept the book interesting because the subjects kept changing. Some of them I felt I could relate to and others I couldn't, but I know people who it does relate to and it helps me understand more about them. This is definatly one of the best books I have read.

Wow, what an introduction to Potok!

I am an education student for middle childhood education currently taking a concepts class in reading. Because of this class I find myself buying young adult literature. I had never read anything by Potok before this, but will be sure to after this. Each story is short and easy to read, yet at the same time very thought provoking. A must read for todays youth as well as their parents. I don't wish to reveal any details, read for yourself.
