הדבר היה ככה Ha davar haja kacha review ☆ 109 ☆ ➛ [KINDLE] ❅ הדבר היה ככה Ha davar haja kacha By Meir Shalev ➥ – Dogsalonbristol.co.uk סיפור מצחיק ומעציב אמיתי אך לא ייאמן שתחילתו ריב אחים ואחריתו ליל אהביםשהתרחשריב אחים ואחריתו ליל אהביםשהתרחש באוקראינה ובפלשתינהבאר?. I enjoyed 'My Russian Grandmother and Her American Vacuum Clear' a great deal It does tend to meander a little Sometimes the meandering just enriches the main story; sometimes I think it is actually material for a different book Meir Shalev's grandmother is the star of this book Grandmother Tonya was a character She was born in Russia and immigrated to Palestine The author has told of Tonya’s character goals likes and dislikes through many humorous stories most of which are in some way or another connected with the vacuum cleaner made by General ElectricTonya had certain phrases that she used often that became her trademark like starting a family story with ‘This is how it was” What enchanted me the most about this book is that even though she had an entirely different background from my grandmother there were some stunning similarities Both came from farming families Both had spouses who would just take off at times Both refused to be idle Both hated dirt violently Both used the porch for snapping green beans and plucking chicken feathers off of the future star of the chicken soup Both demanded that we do not enter through the front door but a different one Both had their grandchildren be very economical in their trips inside and out Tonya asked that the trash be taken out by the grandchild; my grandmother asked that the slop for the pigs be taken out Coming back in the grandchild both asked the grandchild to bring eggs backBut what about the American Vacuum Cleaner It was a gift to her out of spite for her husband from Uncle Yeshayahu aka Uncle Sam who lived in Los Angeles There is a long involved story connected to why this gift was made You will need to read why was it kept locked up What after she died what became of it Several stories that explain that or maybe don’t explain what happened to the vacuum cleanerMeir Shalev weaves the family stories about the main events in his grandmother’s life As he mentions there are exaggerations as time goes on But the stories will make you laugh out loud and set you to thinking One of my favorites is the author wearing read nail polish on his feet why this happened and the significance of this actMeir Shalev is a superb storyteller I believed that he learned this from his grandmother and his many relatives Storytelling enriches and explains the familyDon’t miss this book if you love family storiesI received this book from the Vine program but that in no way influenced my review

?ות הברית ובישראלעל שואב האבק של סבתא שליומעט גם עליה עצמה. I expected this book to be a somewhat lighthearted remembrance of a grandmother and her adjustment problems to the advent of modern technology Instead this book told the story of a dirt obsessed woman who would not let people use the bathroom or other rooms in her house because they would dirty them Literally people had to shower outside and wash in a trough She wouldn't use her vacuum cleaner once she realized that the dirt went inside and by her lights would therefor have to be totally disassembled and cleaned every day Although I did finish the book and there were some good moments overall it was very depressing A women who escaped the progroms so obsessed by dirt that she could not appreciate her good fortune

הדבר היה ככה Ha davar haja kachaסיפור מצחיק ומעציב אמיתי אך לא ייאמן שתחילתו ככה Ha PDFEPUB #229. This is a charming and fun book though it felt a bit too long at times We get to know Shalev's family not only the titular grandmother Tonia As the story meandered along on it's good hud way it became clear that Shalev the writer in the family is just one in a long line of story tellers in every sense of the word The family lived on and got through the best and worst of times through storytelling If stories were embroidered and everyone's version of an event was different and caused friction well that was just fodder for stories In between and through the stories about Tonia and her sweeper I learned something about the killing work demanded of the early Jewish settlers in Palestine and the different ideologies that they lived by and at times divided them But all this is told through humorous anecdotes Nothing heavy and ponderous here I'm still smiling about one story Shalev tells towards the end of the book about bringing a girlfriend to his grandmother's house The book is worth reading for that story alone
