This novel of truly epic proportion deals with the conflict and drama of an evolving post-WWII Israel. Theodore Bikel is an ideal choice for this narrative interpretation. Dealing with numerous characters, he never misses a beat, shifting easily from one accent to another. In one scene, this listener could well imagine sitting in on an impromptu conference held in David Ben-Gurion's bedroom. While military personnel make somber predictions, Mrs. Ben-Gurion frets over the health of Israel's founding father. Production and vocal quality are superb; however, this is a ponderous work, and the minds of all but Wouk's most devoted readers may wander while listening.
