4.0 étoiles sur 5 The Rabbi says 'Good Bye' 20 juillet 2008
Par Jeanne Tassotto - Publié sur
This is the final book in the Rabbi Small series closely following the events of THE DAY THE RABBI RESIGNED. As the novel opens Rabbi Small has taken a position teaching at nearby Windemere College. He is now Rabbi Emeritus of the Barnard's Crossing congregation, a position that both he and the new Rabbi find awkward. In order to ease the situation the Smalls have sublet an apartment near the campus for the winter but by Thanksgiving it becomes apparent that Barnard's Crossing needs the special talents of Rabbi Small to maintain order in their town.

Like most cozy mysteries the appeal to this series has always been in the characters more than the mysteries. Kemelman takes that premise to an extreme in this one, the murder doesn't even occur until well into the second half of the book and the solution seems rushed, as if it is just a detail rather than the climax of the story. Still fans of the series will want to see how their old friends are coping with the passing years and will definitely not want to miss the Rabbi bring his own style of investigation to bear on this crime. Those looking for a challenging puzzler have probably long ago learned to give this series a miss. Cozy fans new to this series could enjoy this one but would probably do better to begin at the beginning.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 This Rabbi Draws No Small Audience! 13 janvier 2001
Par Billy J. Hobbs - Publié sur
Format: Broché
Harry Kemelman's Rabbi David Small is once again gainfully employed! Following his earlier resignation in "The Day the Rabbi Resigned," Small is now teaching at Windermere College--a good, if not proper for him, academic setting. In "That Day the Rabbi Left Town," it seems, having run out of days of the week (remember, this series started with "Friday the Rabbi Slept Late," Kemelman has been creative with working in other diurnal references in his title. That aside, of course, the series has been a fun read. In this one, the death of an elderly colleague gets Rabbi Small into the heart of the action, as it were. Of course, in his new setting he quickly stumbles into all kinds of academic and campus politics, grudges, and jealousies, to say the least. This episode seems a bit different, however, as Kemelman goes didactic and spends a good third of the book giving us perhaps more background, history, and practices of his religion. Readers may find this a struggle, particularly if they are in a hurry to get into the real case! Once that occurs, however, Kemelman cruises.(

5.0 étoiles sur 5 For pilpul and the last of Rabbi David Small, 5 stars! 31 mai 2012
Par Hui Shen ben Israel - Publié sur
Format: Broché
THAT DAY THE RABBI LEFT TOWN (1996) by Harry Kemelman is clearly a sequel to the last Rabbi Small mystery, THE DAY THE RABBI RESIGNED (see my review, but at present it isn't available here). 53-year-old Rabbi David Small, Talmudist and occasional sleuth-by-chance, is preparing to leave Barnard's Crossing, Mass. He will be heading up the newly created Department of Judaic Philosophy at the little nearby college, and is preparing to move to Brookline. This picks up right where Kemelman left off last time.

This time, amidst the stress of whether to just move or commute seasonally, Rabbi Small has to juggle the establishment of his first college class, a new rabbi in B.C., and of course the death of a pain-in-the-rear professor. Kemelman wastes a lot of space here, as he did in the last novel, with the congregation trying to choose a replacement rabbi - I was over it after about 500 words but it went on and on .... They finally pick a studly young jock-type rabbi. He seems like a dim bulb compared to ANY rabbi, but ....

As usual, a lot of the novel is Kemelman's exposé of college professors' everyday-life things and details, which is the kind of writing I also find so interesting in the HARRY POTTER novels. As I said before, Kemelman clearly likes writing about college life. Here he gives the reader an excellent overview of today's professor as contrasted with professors at the beginning of the 20th century - all true and well written. With these excellent details, Kemelman, for once, doesn't kill the freshness of his story.

What I couldn't really fathom was the lengthy backstory of the old professor who is murdered. So he was an old fraud, big deal. It didn't hurt anyone, and even the president was nonchalant about the old professor's total lack of any college education. This is Kemelman's most compelling set of details: the essential fraud that is college education and teaching. I loved it. As usual, the murder is incidental, as is Rabbi Small's involvement. He solves it in approximately 35 words' worth of writing.

This novel, like the last novel, is a bit shorter than most. Kemelman also once again borrows from his own litany of ideas, word for word. That is OK, because they are good words. It does get tiresome, as at certain moments I actually thought I was accidentally reading a Rabbi Small novel I had already read. This novel, unlike Kemelman's canon til now, has a few strange ideas in it. However, one thing I liked was Rabbi Small's brief explanation of Talmudic scholarly hairsplitting, "pilpul", which we are told is Hebrew for "pepper".

I am genuinely saddened that this is the final Rabbi Small mystery. My feeling is Kemelman (who passed away only a few years ago) wanted to continue writing Rabbi Small mysteries-n-Judaica, set at the college since he loves writing about all that. It would have been difficult, and no doubt Kemelman never got around to doing another mystery. So I urge readers to get this one and read it; it stands all by itself, as do most of Kemelman's mysteries. And it is the end of the era of Rabbi David Small.

I wonder what happened to him.
2.0 étoiles sur 5 Pleasant but plodding rabbi mystery -- there are better choices 27 juin 2009
Par talkaboutquality - Publié sur
I suppose the "Rabbi mysteries" are popular and well-known, so I thought I'd try another. I'm even from Massachusetts, so it's pleasant to recognize the places (both real and made-up). But Kemelman just takes too long to set all the pieces in place, with the only spice being some beginner-level explanations of Judaism. The ending is clever and unpredictable -- I'll give him that. But if you've got a few hours to spend on murder mystery, and want something up-to-date, skip the Rabbi and go for Monk.

Save yourself the misery! Don't even think about reading this
book if you're looking for a good mystery! Don't even read it
if you're willing to settle for a so-so mystery! I read to
page 144 and then I finally gave it up. It was a real lesson
in boredom! No one had even died yet! And the book is only
245 pages long! I've concluded that publishers are willing to
print any kind of junk as long as it is written by a well
known author.Well, they fooled me this time--I bought the
book--figured that a guy with that many bestsellers could
write. Live and learn I guess. I won't be picking up any more
Kemelman titles!
