This review is from: A Favorite Son (Kindle Edition)I am not a writer, I am a reader, and I know what captivates me. A Favorite Son is far more than an updated version of a well known Biblical story of Jacob and Esau and their supposedly inimitable mother, Rebecca.
Written- by Uvi Poznansky (Apart From Love, Home) an original and brilliant author whose work will simply mesmerize and create a depth of thought long after the reader has reluctantly left the final page.
Ms. Poznansky's ability to create characters that are quite relatable and emotional and that encompass the range of human emotions- fear, rage, insecurity, love, desire, hatred, and the all-consuming need for acceptance from a parent, is unparalleled.
Her ability to reconfigure one of the most indomitable tales is simply genius.
Written with a mild hand, but with a punch to the gut simultaneously-is intense, and will provide discussion and thought long after the close of the final page.
