    Just Revenge Offers Controversy for Those who Like to Debate and Easy Reading for Those Looking for Thought-Provoking Novel

    Just Revenge has great potential as a Book Club selection as the events of the novel offer much fodder for conversation. Dershowitz's casual writing style allows the reader to choose whether to debate the weighty topics of how the US should handle allegations of Holocaust crimes, the US legal system, and antisemitism, or to simply enjoy the book a novel. Just Revenge is that rare work of fiction that can either be a beach read or the starting point for a philosophical debate.

    The plot is artfully constructed in the early chapters; however, in what appears to be haste to close the novel and to find resolution, the concluding chapters feel contrived. Nonetheless, I thoroughly enjoyed the book.

    Great Story!

    Although I've never appreciated Alan M. Dershowitz for his lack of understanding of the law. I admire his ability to write a sensational story such as this. With riveting scenes and situations Alan M. Dershowtiz leads readers to see the horrible effects after the Holocust.

    Touching story, mediocre writing

    Every once in a while I read a book and I just know that it is a story which I will carry with me always. This is one such book. It brought to life the horrific atrocities that happened to Jews--atrocities that until now I had only heard of through flat history books which do not do much to make the victims of the holocaust very real. Just Revenge makes the holocaust victims and survivors all too real and has touched me a lot more than I had anticipated. That being said,however, the book critic in me comes out and I really must say that the actual writing (not content) of the book was not very good. Am I the only one who was offended when Max was telling the extremely emotional story of his friend who committed suicide in Germany after the holocaust, and Emma's first question was 'What did he look like?' I would think (or at least hope)that this dialog is unrealistic and unfortunately it happens a lot in this book. Aside from this, the book was wonderful and I'd recommend it to anyone.
