I really enjoyed Unorthodox and was excited to see Ms. Feldman's new book out. I enjoyed Exodus but it didn't tell the same interesting story that Unorthodox did. In Unorthodox, the reader was exposed to a world most are unfamiliar with and we cheered Ms. Feldman on when she broke free from the Satmars. In Exodus, while very well written, it wasn't nearly as interesting to read about Ms. Feldman's dealings with the outside world. I enjoyed how she described changing her clothes before class in Unorthodox to try to fit in - I was hoping for more stories like that, highlighting the world she was leaving and the one she was choosing to enter. She is haunted by anyone and anything German and is obsessed with the Nazis and the evil they did - while totally understandable, the way it is written gets old. I think Ms. Feldman is a wonderful writer and I am in awe of the suffering she has had in her life and how she has turned it into such a positive. I will look forward to the next piece she writes.

Deborah Feldman is a truly engaging author. I read Unorthodox and found it truly eye-opening. Now in her follow up Deborah takes us along on her journey of self-discovery. The writing is emotional and engaging. Deborah takes us on a cross country journey in which she searches for identity. It is a truly great book.

I am having a hard time staying engaged with this book. It is a very slow read and I don't feel that the true essence of the book is being captured.
