Tender by Shai Amit

A captivating and original novel that pulls you into the world of nightlife in Amsterdam, New York and Tel Aviv. A world of fascination, dizziness, and deception, brought to light from the point of view of the spectacle’s leading figures. A sidelong view from the central position. The book provides a frank, true, and unique reading experience about a story of introspection, with climbs and crashes, with success and emptiness, and with a desperate search for understanding and love until self-destructiveness is itself destroyed. 

"Shai Amit is a refreshing new voice in the Hebrew literature. His novels glide between illusion, reality, imagination and experience" 

Tender (the Hebrew title) was published in Israel 2011 and became a best-seller. 
This is the first English translation of Hebrew author Shai Amit.

My Thoughts:

This was an excellent read. The author developed the characters extremely well, and it was easy to relate to them. There is discussion of a variety of subjects, including sex, and drug use, so it is more for the mature mindset.

This book is translated from Hebrew to English, and it was done so, flawlessly. I have read translations in the past, that left a lot to be desired, but Tender is great.

From the streets of Tel Aviv, to Amsterdam, this book has ups and downs that will leave you wanting more. I could not put it down, and I appreciated the love story that spread through the pages. If you are looking for a good afternoon read, I would suggest picking up a copy of Tender, I am sure you will enjoy it.
