    Confused

    We read this because Le Clezio had won the Nobel Prize. What a disappointment. The premise is promising - the relationship between an Israeli and an Arab.....but there's nothing there. There's no relationship. The story just rambles, the writing's not great, and the characters aren't real. It was unanimous in our book club - we just didn't get it.

    Novel on struggles and hopes of refugees

    The 'wandering stars' are two young girls, each trying to escape from an oppressive, threatening condition. Esther is a Jewish girl who escapes from Nazi-occupied Europe to Israel. Nejma lives in a Palestinian refugee camp. The two girls' lives are not intertwined physically, but rather spiritually in how they both deal with similar feelings of fear, helplessness, and desire for a better life. Le Clezio, a French author of 20 novels, goes beyond politics, cultural differences, and historical moments to cast light on the universal feelings in experiences of suffering and the struggles, desires, and dreams growing out of such experiences.
