One of the best of late. The detail is rich and the unfolding of the mysteries of the Jewish Haggadah are many, multi-layered and nuanced. Hanna's skill in repairing the book, the other characters from its history are fascinating. The discovery of who Hanna's father was and the cold, difficult relationship with her mother did not add anything to the story, they felt unnecessary other than to point to why Hanna is so fiercely independent. Excellent, sedately paced read. Would recommend for book groups. ( )

I really enjoyed this book. Listening to it really brought the story and characters to life. ( )

Los guardianes del libro tiene lugar después de la guerra de Bosnia, cuando Hanna, una joven bibliófila, se traslada a Sarajevo para restaurar un tesoro perdido. Ya en Bosnia comenzará a trabajar en la restauración de la Haggadah de Sarajevo -un libro de oraciones judío- para tratar de descubrir sus secretos y reconstruir la historia de su milagrosa supervivencia. Pero el viaje también pondrá en movimiento una serie de acontecimientos que amenazan con quebrar la ordenada vida de Hanna, incluyendo su encuentro con Ozren Karamen, el joven bibliotecario que arriesgó su vida para salvar el libro.

Can you really like a book where you really take a dislike to the main character/narrator? A qualified yes, but it does hurt. The parts that do not involve her were actually very well done. The parts with the main character, less so. And it's not just a matter of disliking her, the text there is often awkward. The sex scenes in particular were nearly cringeworthy and seemed to be included just to tick a box on the "includes spicy stuff" checklist. And that's not to say all main characters have to be sympathetic, they don't. But this one is just... I don't know, unpleasant in a different way.

The plot, though, is interesting and gives a little bit of insight into book conservation and does a reasonable job of it. Granted, that was my main interest in reading it, and I found all the relationship drama between Hanna and her mother (and father, for that matter) was superfluous. The drama of the forgery was a good plot mechanism to hold it together, but the main draw for me at least was the short stories that explain the little bits and bobs found in the binding. ( )

This was a very valuable read as it enlightened me to history that I either did not know or had forgotten. It was beautifully written and I appreciated the sections of different people or places where the important book was from or created. I liked the personal story of Hannah, who always knew herself but doubted her strength, passion and meaningfullness. I empathized with her when she feel into self-doubt about her work, as I have been there myself. I was at a flea market this past weekend and couldn't get away from the old books--they seemed to call me to them to discover how they became. Good story!

After reading so many reviews by friends, I just had to give this one a go! I am learning that I don't know much about European history though, which is embarassing. I am enjoying it so far! Like a mystery across the ages, all from a really old book. ( )

While peering through a microscope at a rime of salt crystals on the manuscript of the Haggadah, Hanna reflects that “the gold beaters, the stone grinders, the scribes, the binders” are “the people I feel most comfortable with. Sometimes in the quiet these people speak to me.” Though the reader’s sense of Hanna’s relationship with the Haggadah rarely deepens to such a level, Geraldine Brooks’s certainly has.
 
Brooks' novel meticulously, lovingly amalgamates mystery and history with the personal story of its heroine, rare-book expert and conservator Hanna Heath.
 
If Brooks becomes the new patron saint of booksellers, she deserves it. The stories of the Sarajevo Haggadah, both factual and fictional, are stirring testaments to the people of many faiths who risked all to save this priceless work.

The words stuck to his tongue like...the ashes that had fallen in a warm rain after the last book burning.
I wanted to give a sense of the people of the book, the different hands that had made it, used it, protected it.  I wanted it to be a gripping narrative, even suspenseful.

Descripció del llibre
Sarajevo, 1996. La conservadora de llibres Hanna Heath s'instal·la en una ciutat arrasada per les bombes per examinar l'estat en què es troba l'anomenat «Haggadà de Sarajevo», un valuosíssim còdex hebreu salvat miraculosament durant la guerra dels Balcans. Fascinada per la importància de la troballa, la Hanna decideix seguir la pista d'aquest tresor de la cultura jueva fins a esbrinar els veritables motius pels quals va ser creat, a Sevilla, a finals del segle XV.
