    1 thought on “The Judas Tree”

    1. Не знам дали не съм малко твърде критична към тази книга, може би очакването ми е вдигнало малко летвата. За първи път чета книга, в която главният герой ми е антипатичен от самото начало и до края това не се променя. Трудно е да си избереш и да си изградиш такъв протагонист, з [...]

    2. A must read. Have lent to friends. This is a fictional tale where a man keeps meaning to follow his heart but is too ambitious and comfort seeking. The main character is a weakling and fails miserably at having any real backbone or moral compass. Everything we despise about human nature (potentially to some degree within us all).Despite his flaws he still has a few chances throughout the book for something true in life Enjoyable for alot of reasons. The journey he takes is interesting and the ex [...]

    3. if you are ever in need of being horribly depressed for a period of time, read this punch-you-in-the-heart novel. it's short and well-written, and absolutely painful.

    4. Projekta "Izlasīt visu Kroninu" kārtēja grāmata. Kronina grāmatas var patikt vai nepatikt, bet vienaldzīgo nebūs. Tā arī es, lasot šo grāmatu, kaut kur pazudu emocijās. Taču, ja pēc izlasīšanas ar sievu izraisās diskusija pāris dienu garumā, tad jādomā , ka grāmta ir laba. Par Kronina stāstnieka talantu vairs neatkārtošos, valoda ir raita, sižets aizrauj jau 5. lapaspusē, lasās ļoti ātri. Grāmatas stāsts par jaunu ārstu un tā centieniem atrast dzīvē to pareizo [...]

    5. In some ways this is a decent little morality tale for grownups, but I spent the entirety of the read loathing the main character who is the worst kind of villain, the sort that imagines himself and victim and, aside from his wealth, is all too commonly found. The minor characters also come off as rather flat, awful themselves or lacking in the spark that might give them the clear sight to see Moray as he is and pick up on the red flags he drops. While I don't find any obvious faults in the writ [...]

    6. From the author of "The Citadel", this is a dark, unsettling story of love and betrayal, full of emotions and leaving the reader stupefied with its shocking ending. Cronin analyzes common human desires, juxtaposing them against the lucid world of faith, which turns the novel into a tense psychological depiction of the eternal battle between good and evil. The beauty of this work is in the way it combines a "chamber" setting, focusing entirely on the main character, with a very "epic" theme, trea [...]

    7. Прекрасна,завладяващатака завладяваща,че чак променя настроението ми за целия ден.Няма да говоря за майсторството на писателя.Когато човек я чете, няма как да се обърка,че държи нещо класно и не знам дали няма да сгреша,ако кажа класическо.В началото толкова ме грабна,че ко [...]

    8. What a sick, horrible story! It seems I was right about it reminding me of Anna Karenina, since one of the characters was reading itr the second time! I had a horrible feeling the whole time I was reading it that the main character was a sicko, selfish, pompous, weak, in body AND mind, to say the least. It turns out, I was right, but I wish I hadn't wasted my time!

    9. One of the best books I've read. Dr. Cronin's narrative is exceptionally good as is his characterization and setting descriptions. His handling of the question of personal redemption is thought provoking and intense. It is hard to come away from this superbly gripping novel unmoved.

    10. I do not know what to say about the book. I feel like I received a great blow. I'm really suffering. The story hurt me deeply. Cronin is realy very good writer. The citadel novel, another novel of the writer, had affected me intensely to. I definitely recommend it.

    11. Два раза наступить на одни и те же грабли Как правило это вызывает улыбку - но не в этом случае. Лично мне главного героя не жалко, так как им руководили не чувства, а эгоистичность. Не делайте таких ошибок! Никогда

    12. An amazing story; I felt I was reading about Trump in many cases. Beautifully written although the main character was dispicable.

    13. Дървото на Юда", Арчибалд Кронин28.01.15 18:19Автор:DennyНякои мисли по време на четенеЗапочнах я онзи ден. След всички нови, съвременни, понякога странни и "отвлечени" книги, които четох напоследък, изведнъж изпитах нужда от нещо по-старо, нещо от автор, когото съм чела преди и който [...]

    14. The story was interesting enough. A doctor makes his fortune by betraying everyone he knows and loves. He does not betray them on purpose, he just lacks the courage and will to see anything to the end. This leads him to always take the easy and comfortable option when faced with a difficult situation. No happy ending here, as indicated by the title.The writing is a little choppy at places. Suffers from the "let me tell you," instead of the "let me show you," your English teacher was always talki [...]

    15. I didn't much like this book. Very self-absorbed main character who appeared on the surface to care very much about people, but actually only cared about himself and what others thought of him. Not a likeable character in any respect. I didn't really warm to any of the characters in the book, for that matter. Also, the writing was dated.

    16. Dupa 22 de ani, am recitit una dintre cartile autorului meu preferat din anii studentiei. Mi-ar fi placut nespus ca atunci sa-mi fi notat impresiile lasate de carte, deoarece acum am fost furioasa pe personajul principal, David, pe instabilitatea lui sentimentala si pe graba cu care ia decizii care afecteaza destinul celor din jur, si din care nu invata nimic.

    17. тотално слабо произведение, идеята - хубава, изпълнението - никакво. Дейвид Мъри все едно да е малоумен, па как само се води по акъла на Фрида и на Холбрукови и накрая го загриза съвестта.Кети все едно е извадена от викторианската епоха, сегиз-тогиз му удря по едно кръстене. То [...]

    18. A. J. Cronin wrote much better novels when he dealt with young people like in "The Citadel"; "Shannon's Way"; "Beyond This Place"; "The Green Years"; "The Song of Six Pence"; "The Hatter's Castle"; and many more. But this one is simply trite to me. The copy I read I bought many a year ago but left it unread for reasons I don't know.

    19. A self-absorbed main character goes through life "with the best intentions". However, as the old adage goes "The road to Hell is paved with good intentions". The destructiveness for this fundamentally weak man is sad. His ultimate end is probably deserved but unfortunate that his estate falls into his wife's hands. Good descriptions of Switzerland, Scotland and Vienna.A very literate book.

    20. I struggled to finish itI was glad to get to the end of this book. After thoroughly enjoying The Citadel, Hatter's Castle and The Stars Look Down I felt A J Cronin was coasting when he wrote this. It is subjective I know but I felt his heart was not in it.

    21. I first read this book when I was 10, 11 years old I believe. It drew me in immediately, and it even had a hint of comedy in some paragraphs. I loved it, and it quickly became my favorite book. It's a wonderful story and I highly recommend it. :)

    22. This is the really great book. It tells about that the doctor work should not be mixed with ego.For a doctor, i think he is concerned with the patient.He does not own his life anymore like Actors or Actress,etc.

    23. I loved this contempoary fiction novel written prior to 1965. There was a flowing simplicity of expression, a good and complex plot spanning generationsd a very unusual ending, not neccessarilyhappy.

    24. Не ми хареса толкова, колкото си мислех. Може би имах твърде високи очаквания. Историята е реалистична, без романтични окраски и е показана егоистичната природа на човека. И все пак, очаквах повече

    25. A. Rattling good read. Once you pick up, and A. J. Cronin book, you can't put it down. A consummate storyteller.
