    Like much of Amos Oz s work, Black Box is not about the story Indeed, the book is built around the premise that unresolved childhood trauma brings disaster to all the people around when the child grows up, but in truth the book is all about people dysfunctional people who hit, scream, beg, and blackmail, get divorced or separated, and still try to reunite with each other As sides, the epistolary style of the book engages the reader in mind games will I turn the pages and see who wrote this will [...]

    God, CAN this man write or what Think about it, here you ve got a novel about a divorced couple and their arguments, a husband and white trying to decide on the fate of their child while working on making their lives miserable, all written in a form of letters A novel composed of letters, I dare say I didn t believe it could work in this century Certainly not for this theme Certainly not as a way of telling a story For there is a story, with a beginning, middle and an end It is not just monologu [...]

    Amos Oz transports us to a land full of sorrows, consequence of a failed marriage In this place, created in his brilliantly written epistolary style, we face bitterness, disappointments, humiliations and even some cruelty engendered by words In this apparently dry landscape, however, the author also presents us with understanding, compassion, and, above all, some remaining love, even after the painful divorce, even after whatever life has brought An amazing piece of work of Amos Oz highly recomm [...]

    I picked up this book with little enthusiasm Based on the summary, I was convinced that I would not care for it The GoodReads summary was as follows, examines the lives of a contemporary Israeli couple whose marriage has ended in disaster My initial reaction was that sounds boring and depressing Boy, was I wrong about the boring part, it is not exactly uplifting I loved this book The Black Box is an epistolary novel told through a series of letters, memos, notes between a formerly married couple [...]

    Before starting to read this book, I read some very few comments on it Most of them talked about a love story and about humor Maybe it s me, but I didn t find anything funny in this book And I would hardly call it a love story I would rather say it s a book about death and violence A sad book about death and violence It only gets 3 stars from me because I found the beginning tiresome and naive, full of clich s and superficial I found the end quite exquisite, though boring sometimes As an overall [...]

    Even if my rating is not very high, I think it was a book worth reading.Written as an array of letters offering different perspectives on the events, it slowly unfolds its layers of plot and reveals the nature of the characters.

    A heartcrushing family drama unfolds through letters This book makes me want to buy a set of waterman stationery, and start a correspondence with friends, enemies and ex lovers.

  11. Ana Mamic

    I rank it as one of the best books I ve read An epistolary novel, it explores the relationships between four people a woman, her ex husband, their son, and the woman s current husband The letters exchanged by the ex spouses reveal a psychopathological relationship of passion and lust twisted into abuse, manipulation, and betrayal.It s a book about pain, but there are also moments of humor, tenderness, and beauty It offers a deep, detailed analysis of a relationship between a man and a woman and [...]

    Sometimes events do have a way of coinciding at the same time When I was reading Black Box there was a huge fracas about the divorce bill being passed in parliament and whether or not if it was going to go through despite the fact that 52% of the Maltese population wanted it there was a referendum in May 2012 Black Box touches upon the subject of divorce, and this being Amos Oz, much .It s a simple story Through various letters and telegrams and estranged wife is asking for her husband for funds [...]

    E stata una gran bella lettura questo romanzo epistolare di Amos Oz.L epistolario fra Alec e Ilana dopo 7 anni di assoluto silenzio in seguito a un divorzio conflittuale, rileva una forte ambivalenza di sentimenti, un intreccio di a e odio, di passioni non del tutto assopite E un gioco di specchi, un caleidoscopio di vissuto, di realt e individuali Non c mai del resto una verit sola e assoluta, ma diversi punti di vista della stessa.La scatola nera anche uno sguardo acuto sul conflitto israelian [...]

    This is the third time I read Black box One of the best novels, full of warmth, passion, human strengths and weaknesses It shows the full complexity of our emotions and relationships Connects love and jelaousy, friendships and love, family relations and passion, and it only goes to show how things are never black and white The fact that I like most about it is that all of them Illana and her ex husband, and her current husband, and their children, ex husband and his lawyer, form kind of emotiona [...]

    How thin is this line between love and hate And how things and feelings can change over the years depending on new situations in our everyday life At least for me this was the main idea and wondering about these things while reading this novel by Amos Oz A unique text written entirely in epistolary form Letters exchanged mostly between an ex married couple, a lawyer of the man, a new husband of the woman and their son Sounds confusing Perhaps it does but it s not, very soon someone gets easily u [...]

    Nekad mi je ak malo nelagodno govoriti koliko je Amos Oz izvanredan Ne znam to bih mogla re i, a da ve nisam rekla, nakon svake njegove pro itane knjige Takva mudrost, talent, lako a izra avanja, duhovitost Crna kutija je epistolarni roman, predivna, sna na pri a, kakvu samo pravi majstori znaju stvoriti itava povijest jedne obitelji u manje od 300 stranica, pri e s kojima se manje ili vi e svatko mo e poistovjetiti ak i ako ka e da nije tako, oh, posebno tada , a na kraju kao ja ostane samo sje [...]

    Having been in some kind of weird state of mind lately, I haven t been reading much This is the first normal book I ve read in a while, and it took awhile, with gaps of time in between An epistolary novel, it first took me some time get into it, and then, once I did get involved, it just seemed to get so intense mind you this was partly my state of mind But this is a complex work The variety of issues within Israel it brings in the fanatical and irreverent views on religious and their political [...]

    This is a novel in letters, a firm which, when well written, allows for multiple points of view to be presented And multiple points of,view are helpful when you are dealing with a woman, married to her second husband, who begins a correspondence with her first, from whom she has been estranged since their messy divorce The story line, and the characters, though, are a little overwritten, and some of the letters would have required 40 or 50 handwritten pages, but it is all saved by Oz masterful w [...]

    Unforgettable and intenseA powerful book with unforgettable remarkable characters that are very well built in their flaws as much as in their strength It is amazing how the author makes such a gripping a book in which we only get to know the relationship between the characters through letters they write to each other We see love, hatred, passion, good deeds, evilness, hope, despair and there are no villains or good guys A touching and involving story written by an exceptionally talented writer t [...]
