Descrizione prodotto


From Elie Wiesel, a gripping novel of guilt, innocence, and the perilousness of judging both.

A plane en route from New York to Tel Aviv is forced down by bad weather. A nearby house provides refuge for five of its passengers: Claudia, who has left her husband and found new love; Razziel, a religious teacher who was once a political prisoner; Yoav, a terminally ill Israeli commando; George, an archivist who is hiding a Holocaust secret that could bring down a certain politician; and Bruce, a would-be priest turned philanderer.

Their host—an enigmatic and disquieting man who calls himself simply the Judge—begins to interrogate them, forcing them to face the truth and meaning of their lives. Soon he announces that one of them—the least worthy—will die.

The Judges is a powerful novel that reflects the philosophical, religious, and moral questions that are at the heart of Elie Wiesel’s work.

From the Hardcover edition.


Elie Wiesel is the author of more than forty books, including his unforgettable international best-sellers Night and
A Beggar in Jerusalem, winner of the Prix Médicis. He has been awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the United States Congressional Gold Medal, and the French Legion of Honor with the rank of Grand Cross. In 1986, he received the Nobel Peace Prize. He is Andrew W. Mellon Professor in the Humanities and University Professor at Boston University. He lives with his wife, Marion, in New York City.

This was difficult to read because it took a long time to figure out what was going on. Toward the end the main character made some important discoveries about himself and faith. I would not have finished it if my bookclub had not been reading it, but I am glad I did.

4.0 su 5 stelle Found Wanting 25 febbraio 2007
Di RCM - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina flessibile
Through numerous novels, Elie Wiesel has proven himself to be a master storyteller. He is able to intermingle the fictional world with the all too real memories of the Holocaust that haunt almost every piece of writing he produces. While "The Judges" has an intriguing premise, it is not among his better works.

When a plane en route to Tel Aviv is forced down by a snow storm, five random passengers find themselves offered refuge in a nearby house. What at first appears to be a safe haven quickly turns into a nightmare when the host, who simply refers to himself as the Judge, tells them of the 'game' at hand. All five of those present will be judged and the one who is the least worthy among them must pay the ultimate sacrifice. The five strangers have trouble believing the Judge at first, simply thinking his pronouncement a farce, but when they discover that they are locked within the room, they quickly realize the seriousness of their predicament. They must try to work together to fight their way out, or decide who should be the sacrificial lamb for the others.

"The Judges" has many characteristics that trademark a Wiesel novel. There is the shift in narrative between various characters, and between past and present times. Yet unlike his other works, the narratives here have little cohesiveness - there is no thread that ties them all together and even though the five characters are forced to spend one night together under one roof, that is all that unites them. There may be commonalities among their pasts and their reasons for wishing to remain alive, but beyond that, this story is about disconnect. The ending is far too rushed for the story that is offered and the conclusion to the host's 'game' is trite and predictable. With that being said, "The Judges" is still a fine read, thanks in large part to Wiesel's intellect and his poetic use of language.

3.0 su 5 stelle A cryptic novel that explores the value of a life. 25 agosto 2002
Di booklover10 - Pubblicato su
Formato: Copertina rigida
In Elie Wiesel's novel, "The Judges," five airline travelers are flying en route from New York to Tel Aviv. They are forced to land in Connecticut because of a severe snowstorm. An apparently hospitable individual invites them to stay in his cabin until the storm subsides. What the five passengers do not know is that their apparently kind-hearted host has a hidden agenda that is anything but benign.
The travelers, four men and a woman, have secrets and worries that plague them. One of them is terminally ill, another seeks to regain memories of his earlier life, and a third carries a letter that may have serious political ramifications. The host, who calls himself "The Judge," starts to play a malevolent game with his guests. He cruelly informs them that after they reveal the intimate details of their lives, the least worthy among them will die. Also in the cabin is the Hunchback, the Judge's servant, who is a severely deformed man that the Judge took in when no one else would care for him. The Hunchback has secret thoughts of his own that he keeps carefully hidden.
This slim novel (approximately 200 pages long) is filled with convoluted philosophical musings. The travelers engage in verbal sparring matches with one another and with the Judge. Unfortunately, none of the characters come to life, and it is unclear what the Judge, the Hunchback and the travelers are supposed to represent. What is Wiesel trying to say about the significance of an individual's life? I was unable to detect a coherent message in this novel. After having read Wiesel's touching and deeply meaningful works on the Holocaust, I was surprised by how unmoved "The Judges" left me.

Well, where do I start with this book? There is a hunchback in this book and heeeeee scares the crap outta me. And everybody is in a very bad mood the whole entire time. And SPOILER ALERT, the hunchback doesn't die. But he does have a hunched back and it kinda looks like Quazimoto but I don't know why. He just does. He has a teapot. It's like in Beauty and the Beast. It's zero degrees right now in Utah, fyi. Sunny. In an hour it'll be 18 degrees, I doubt that. I have to take out the trash at my's snowy. don't read this book and if you do only read it because of the Hunchback. That's the only good thing about life, people have hunchbacks and we can laugh at them.3B Scientific Chemistry Cocktail Set for Drink Mixing

The plot seemed so real. While reading the book, my dad had told me my aunt had once had to stay overnight at someone's home because of a simlar event like the one in the book, the book kinda hit close to home. I never had read any of Elie Wiesel's books before, but checked the book out of the library after reading the inside cover and deciding that the plot would be interesting and make a good story. However, I was disappointed. I really felt that Wiesel could have expanded a lot more on the plot. I didn't feel like I knew the charcters well enough. I didn't understand why the ending ended the way it did. It wasn't the best book I read, but it wasn't the worst.
