    2 thoughts on “Thump

    1. Prepare your hearts, ladies and gentlemen, for they're about to thump and buzz with the utmost thrill! Prepare your hearts for Thump!Thump - whose real name is T. M. Jefferson - is a young African American man who seems to have it all - looks, a well-paying job, and a loving girlfriend. But things are not always as they seem. Henrietta Kingman, one of his white, much older, bosses, was the one who hired him and took him under her wing, and she sure can be the one to make certain he's fired. Wh [...]

    2. Azrieli departs from his past collection of novels, leaving religion and politics by the wayside. Thurgood Marshall "Thump" Jefferson is an up and coming analyst, trying to climb the corporate ladder. Part of his allure to the rich, widowed clientele is his sexual prowess and willingness to close a deal by any means necessary. When he tries to steer away from his illicit type of activity to marry the woman of his dreams, it backfires and he is left out of work and scorned. When he takes his old [...]

    3. ‘Thump’ is a thought-provoking and entertaining novel about gender and racial stereotyping and prejudice. Thump, an Afro-American working in a predominately white business, thumps his female boss and any female client his boss sends his way. In return, she supports his career. When Thump asks his girlfriend to marry him, she asks him for a vow of exclusivity and he agrees, but when he says ‘no’ and ‘not any more’ to his boss, things start to unravel.The more I reflect on it, the more [...]

    4. "Thump" by Avraham Azrieli is another captivating novel, this time covering issues which sometimes are hidden away behind closed doors or are flaring up like the festering sores that they are. The main character, Thurgood Marshal Jefferson, 'Thump', naively gets into a situation fresh out of Grad school that for a young upwardly mobile man seems great, but takes years and a lot of pain and anguish to finally get out of. KKG, a gleaming bastion of American Capitalism has had a deep dark secret hi [...]

    5. Another great novel by Azrieli. Fast paced, short enough to read in one day and exciting enough to leave you breathless at the end. Thump is racier than his other novels and explores the dirty little secrets of a prestigious, all white investment firm that hires a black associate under the guise of improving diversity. "Mentored" by the older female partner, Thump becomes a sex toy for her and her wealthy female friends that she brings to the firm. Thump reaps the rewards of his "services" in th [...]

    6. Thump is an overall absolutely awesome book from start to finish. It wasn't long until I found myself hooked right into Thump, and that didn't subside until the very end of the story. I must admit, at first I was expecting a thriller that was archetypal and generic like all of the others I come across these days Instead, I pleasantly stumbled upon by far one of the most top quality books that I have come across all year. There's something about the writing style that drags you deep right into th [...]

    7. This read is all around a great addition to my reading list. This is my second by this author and although far different from Christmas for Joshua, it has the same heart-warming truth be told storyline. It is both heart wrenching, funny, naught, and serious at times it needs to be. The antagonist of the book is downright amusing, Kingsman is by far the most amazing character I've come accross in a while.Get prepared to have a courtroom twister. Brings in indecision and worldy views about the eve [...]

    8. I had the pleasure of reading Thump very recently. I don't often read fiction so try to be choosey in my selection. In a nutshell it's about, "A young and handsome African American, his white female boss, and an explosive sexual harassment trial that threatens to destroy the richest investment firm in Baltimore." Sounds intriguing enough as is, but it's not what you expect it to be. The plot twists, roles are reversed, the future of the characters and big business hangs in the balance. Love, rac [...]

    9. Thump is about a young black man trying to work his way up in a predominantly white company where his employment is tied to his willingness to trade sex for favors with his female boss as well as her prospective clients. It's a plot line that has been written over and over about women but rarely about a man, especially a man that would appear to be strong and powerful. The ensuing court drama that results when he refuses to continue sleeping with the boss highlight the anguish and embarrassment [...]

    10. Avraham Azrieli writes another successful novel. The dialogue between the characters is tight and moving. "Thump" captures the essence of a strong man, beautiful women, and an entertaining yet intense story. It starts with a well-built African American pressing heavy weight dumbbells while his beautiful girlfriend is exercising beside him and cheering him on. The story builds up as tensions rise in a mix of business and sexual conflicts. The trial, which is at the heart of the novel, is compelli [...]

    11. I’ve read a bunch of Avraham Azrieli’s novels, and have enjoyed them all. Recently my husband and I both finished Thump. My husband is an atty so I had him read it too thinking he’d enjoy the legal tale that I’d enjoyed so much. He agreed with my thoughts on the book. All of Azrieli’s novels have characters that are very well developed, Thump is no exception. This book touches on so many issues; it really has something for everyone. This is the perfect twist on the theme of sexual hara [...]

    12. Legal thriller about high finance, sexual harassment and racism (not necessarily in that order).The main character, Thump, is a handsome and ambitious black man working his way up in an exclusive, lily-white investment firm. But much of his ladder-climbing is the result of his ability to play the stud to his boss prospective clients to rich widows. The raunchy opening, however, widens into a realistic and absorbing character study after he brings a sexual harassment suit following his sudden fir [...]

    13. This is definitely the sauciest of Avrieli’s novels. It’s a whirlwind tale of sex, race, racism, the law, infidelity and the workplace. This book takes a very different tone from his other writing and sheds an interesting light on sexual harassment when the tables are turned. The sordid tale makes you wonder what kind of corruption is going in offices across the country. I highly recommend this book.

    14. Great novel!“Thump” is a great novel with so many interesting themes that will definitely not leave you indifferent: there is a lot of drama, emotion, suspense, inequality, abuse and many other themes that make the story interesting.The book is well written great to read - It has great plot, great characters and very captivating story with interesting twists. Overall, it is a great read, I really enjoyed reading that book and I am sure that you will enjoy it too. I recommend it!

    15. An intriguing thought provoking story that causes the reader to examine the roles that race, socioeconomic class, and gender play as a young black man working as a financial adviser is involved in a number of unethical situations in the workplace with older white women. While the topic and characters were very different from Azrieli’s other novels, this is written in the same captivating manner. Each character is incredibly well developed, and you learn the history that has shaped them.

    16. Great novel, I enjoyed it from start to finish! The plot is easy to follow and entertaining. Some of the material is probably R-rated, so it is definitely not a children's read, but from around 15 and up, a great and worthwhile read! It is obvious that there was some definite research involved, and thus makes the read that much more enjoyable. Thanks!

    17. This book kept me going from chapter two until the end. You will feel for every character in the book by the end. I think this book is great because it explores an largely ignored topic--sexual abuse from the man's point of view. It's to say what I like about this book without becoming a spoiler, but I must say that ANYONE who enjoys drama will enjoy this book. I'd recommend it to young adults.

    18. From the moment I picked up this book I couldn’t put it down. The story was captivating and intense, as was the dialogue between characters. That being said the characters were strong and seemly perpetuated themselves. The plot was fantastic and flowed along without any dull parts at all. I loved it!

    19. GREAT book. I love this writer!!Im a fan of Mr. Avraham Azrieli, I believe this book is well done, good pace, it keeps my attention beginning to ending. I have read all his books and what I like the most is that this one is also unique, the way he tells the story is entertained and wise. THUMP is a excellent option for any kind of readers.

    20. I really enjoyed this book – great read. Super suspenseful and hard to put down. I became really intrigued with the characters very quickly and never lost interest. Very provocative and well written. Highly recommend!

    21. Avraham Azrieli does it again with the addition of "Thump" to his pantheon of literary works. This book is exciting and keeps you interested from start to finish. Azrieli always creates unique characters and epic plot twists. This book is a must read. I highly recommend it.

    22. This book was a delight. I love the way the author created characters that were as interesting as the controversial topics of racism and sexual harrassment.
