Fiddler on the Roof

Sit down and revisit an old classic! Follow Tevye, the Jewish father of five girls, three of whom are determined to change old tradition through marriage. Tzeitel starts the chain reaction by refusing an arranged marriage to Lazar the butcher, saying she wants to marry for love. Her sister Hodel then follows by marrying her true love, a pauper and a man leaving the country before they even get the chance to marry. Chava is last, declaring she needs no permission, just her father's blessing, which he is unwilling to give when he decides to marry a man not of Jewish faith . I'm the end, not only is Tevye's world shaken by his daughter's forward ways, but by the world itself, and the wars it's destined to start. Strangely I've never seen this play/musical. But I usually like to read a book before watching it in motion anywAy, so I am happy to have read this .. It was a very quick but delightful read. I always enjoy reading the traditions of other cultures. This is a classic everyone should indulge in. I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review .
