    Not since Thomas L. Friedman's groundbreaking From Beirut to Jerusalem has a book captured the essence and the beating heart of the Middle East as keenly and dynamically as My Promised Land. Facing unprecedented internal and external pressures, Israel today is at a moment of existential crisis. Ari Shavit draws on interviews, historical documents, private diaries, and letters, as well as his own family's story, illuminating the pivotal moments of the Zionist century to tell a riveting narrative that is larger than the sum of its parts.

    Chaim says: "Important book; unfortunate narration"
    "Excellent book well narrated"

    Would you listen to My Promised Land again? Why?

    In terms of content the short historical chapters work well for driving. If you like audiobooks and like a very ingightful


    What did you like best about this story?

    The use of historical points told from the point of view of various characters. He does a great job getting out of the 2014 paradigm and showing the 19th and early 20th century mental frames


    What about Paul Boehmer’s performance did you like?

    Narrator does a nice job sounding like you imagine Ari Shavit to sound. Even a slight Israeli accent that isn't obtrusive but gives you the feel. His dramatic read is effective


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. This book is 21 hrs long.
