Book Review: Unorthodox


by Deborah Feldman

Review by Claude

Undoubtedly one of the best books I’ve read all year, and for viewers of the acclaimed Netflix series, this is a compulsory read! Feldman crafts an enthralling and captivating story with her lyrical writing. Unorthodox is a fascinating looking-glass into religion and its impact on those that don’t conform. It is also a story of hope and perseverance, something that we all need now more than ever. This raw, authentic portrayal of sacrifice and freedom is almost unbelievable. It’s relevance and poignancy hasn’t waned more than a decade on.
