This is one of the best books I have ever read. It can be enjoyed in so many ways: as a mystery based on the theft of a work of art, as a family saga, as an examination of the meaning and purpose of our lives, on the nature and sources of art. And yet Horn's novel has a unique integrity of its own. A great read and a meaningful gift!

There are times when I find a book that has taken me to a world I'm happy to be in and this was one of them.

Dara Horn is to be thanked for a truly outstanding work. 'THE WORLD TO COME' is a reflection of remarkable insight ... moving, inspiring as well as informative. A book that is as imagiinative and revealing as a painting by Marc Chagall (one of its real-life characters).

I learned so much about Marc Chagall's art, Yiddish literature and life in Stalinist Russia from this book. All this, while thoroughly enjoying Dara Horn's imaginitive prose, colorful and quirky (but realistic) characters and suspenseful plot. For those who would be disappointed by the ending, remember Der Nister's words on p. 38, 'How is that not a 'real ending'? There are no real endings in life, either. Since when do things end?'

Wow, this is the best book I¿ve read in months! The writing is masterful and so imaginative. The plot revolves around a piece of art, a¿sketch¿ for the well known Chagall painting, Over Vitebsk, and how it was an integral part of the history of the Ziskind family. How they came to own it, how it was ultimately stolen from them and how present day Ben Ziskind, remembering the painting, steals it from the museum. There are stories within stories but the author is so skillful it all fits together in a patchwork of a family¿s history, loves and losses. The characters are unique and well drawn. Glimpses of the artist Chagall as well as a legendary Yiddish author bring more interest to the story. The brutality of the Russia soldiers in the early 1920¿s and an inside look at a bleak orphanage enlighten as well as shock the reader. A definite 5, great for any lover of literature.
