Item description for El ultimo judio by Antonia Menini Pages Noah Gordon...

In the year 1492, the Inquisition has all of Spain in its grip. Yonah Toledano, the 15-year-old son of a celebrated Spanish silversmith, has seen his father and brother die during these terrible days, and though he is trapped in Spain by circumstances, he is determined to honor the memory of his family by remaining a Jew. As a lonely shepherd on a mountaintop he hurls snatches of almost forgotten Hebrew at the stars; as an apprentice armorer he learns to fight like a Christian knight. Finally, as a man living in a time and land where danger from the Inquisition is everywhere, he deals with the questions that mark his past.

Reviews - What do customers think about El ultimo judio?

I loved it  Jan 2, 2003
This book has a little bit of everything: a moving story, an interesting setting, many little misteries, a lot of historically correct information about the times of the Spanish inquisition. It is written in a friendly, easy-to-follow language, and it leaves us with many thoughts about discrimination, courage, love, and the human spirit.
 
Un repaso de historia  Apr 19, 2002
Esta novela más que la historia de Yonah Toledano y su familia, es la historia de miles de familias judias y musulmanas que tras la conquista de Granada por los Reyes Católicos se vieron forzados a abandonar sus casas y propiedades por su fe o abjurar de ellas y convertirse al catolicismo. Muy de manifiesto se ve la mano de la Santa Inquisición que tomó parte activa en esa historica expulsión tan nefasta para la España de aquel entonces y la reacción de los ciudadanos que igual delataban a los conversos y herejes como que los protegían y escondían a sabiendas de las consecuencias que el delito acarreaba. Muy buena las descripciones que el autor hace de esa España del siglo XVI, sus costumbres, formas de vida y pensamientos.
 
Todo catolico debe leerlo!  Jul 10, 2000
A manera de novela, Noah Gordon nos invita a vivir el horror que padecieron los judíos durante la inquisición. Allí uno se entera de lo que la Iglesia Católica calla. España es el escenario para conocer esa parte de la historia (que aunque en este libro fabulada y recreada con personajes que no existieron como tales) de la que los católico se averguenzan. Es una novela maravillosa, finamente escrita, atrapa la atención del lector al leer las primeras líneas y desde allí se hace dicífil cerrar el libro, hasta llegar al sorprendente final que es la esperanza misma.
 
El Ultimo Judio - Magnifica Obra de Noah Gordon  Jun 4, 2000
El autor logra capturar la atencion del lector y es dificil dejar de leer esta novela. El autor revela la aventura de este joven judio durante la España del 1500. Tiene suspenso, amor, y atencion al detalle en una narrativa facil de leer. El que ha viajado a, o vive en España, apreciara esta obra de marco historico. (Si les gusto The Name of the Rose, les gustara esta).
 
Los primeros años de vida durante la Inquisicion.  Mar 19, 2000
Este es un libro excelente, aunque es historia novelada, describe una epoca en forma perfecta. Ademas el lector esta siempre en suspenso a traves de todo el libro.Apenas tome el libro para leerlo no pude parar.Este ejemplar lo compre justo despues de un viaje a España y pude recrear todos los sitios donde habia estado.
