    1 thought on “The Ice Cream Queen of Orchard Street: A Novel

    1. I really enjoyed this book, but unfortunately it suffers from chick lit cover syndrome It s a smart, engrossing story about a brilliant and complicated woman that will most likely get overlooked due to the cheesy cover, which puts one in mind of shoes, and cupcakes, and yogurt, and tampons Ignore the cover and read it anyway

    2. You ll want to fill your freezer with your favorite ice cream before starting this book It s a rags to riches story about a Russian Jewish immigrant girl, Malka Treynovsky, who is transformed to a successful Ice Cream Queen, Lillian Dunkle.Six year old Malka and her family arrived in New York City in 1913 They found that America was nothing like what they saw in the moving pictures, and were living in poverty Three months later a horse pulling a cart of Italian ices ran over Malka and crippled h [...]

    3. If I hadn t been reading this for a book club, I d have put it away unfinished I didn t like the main character of Lillian at ALL Typically, main characters show growth, but Lillian narrates the story as a 76 year old woman She even speaks yiddish when she didn t grow up Jewish Every time she said So sue me, or Darlings, I wanted to pelt her with ice cream Her personality is a caricature Despite her tough life, however, I liked how her business smarts were always evident But darlings, I really d [...]

    4. Gilman certainly makes a grand entrance with her debut novel The Ice Cream Queen of Orchard Street With her stellar writing style, spot on characterization and well researched plush historical tarp both author and novel impress A rags to riches tale of Malka Bialystoker Lillian Dunkle, a Russian immigrant turned America s queen of the creamy confection ice cream Spanning from the early 1900 s into the 1980 s, Gilman holds no punches regarding the description of the times and hardships faced by i [...]

    5. WARNING you ll need to have ice cream easily accessible when reading this book you will crave ice cream.I m giving Susan Jane Gilman props on her first piece of fiction it s fantastic The subjects are interesting immigrants, rags to riches, ice cream , the writing is suburb, and the story is well told It all fits together to create a page turner that fascinates and educates I ve learned plenty on this reading journey the science behind ice cream, the story of an ice cream barge towed into the Pa [...]

    6. The writer s constant use of the term so sue me , and addressing the readers as Darlings , I found to be cliched and extremely annoying, and this was after reading only about 70 pages The main character of Malka Lillian became less and less likable as the story progressed The book needed a glossary for Yiddish expressions, except, of course, for the stereotypical expressions of bubeleh, kindeleh, maideleh, schmucks schlemiel, oy vey, sprinkled throughout page after page.As Lillian goes from a li [...]

    7. The most appealing aspect of this novel, for me, was the history and life of immigrants on New York s Lower East Side This early history was very reminiscent of one of my favorite classics regarding immigrant life, Bread Givers By Anzia Yezierska, and quickly filled my hopes for the remainder of this novel However, beyond this, I found the novel to be quite disappointing Told in first person, the narrator quickly became annoying and too stereotypical for my liking Malka Treynovsky, who later fas [...]

    8. My Review I picked up this book from my local library because I was interested in a rags to riches storyline and while this certainly was that kind of book it took on a different tone than I was expecting The book started out strong but my interest and the momentum of the storyline started to waver about halfway through especially as the business side of the storyline took the lead Some of the ice cream information given was interesting but I wanted detail about the characters and progression o [...]

    9. My Review Lillian Dunkle is in legal hot water but she still The Ice Cream Queen And don t you forget it, darlings Ever since my arrest at NBC, and my conviction for tax evasion, it has become open season on Lillian Dunkle Never mind that the U.S embassy was bombed in Beirut Or that President Reagan has announced he s deploying a missile shield in outer space Some weasel faced journalists have nothing important to do, it seems, than to dig up dirt about me The Ice Cream Queen of Orchard Street [...]

    10. New York, 1913 Nach einem Pogrom in ihrer russischen Heimatstadt ist die j dische Familie der kleinen Malka ausgewandert Urspr nglich sollte es nach S dafrika zu einem Onkel gehen, doch der Vater hat heimlich stattdessen Karten f r die Schiffspassage in die USA gekauft Im neuen, verhei ungsvollen Land steht die Familie jedoch ganz am Ende der Gesellschaft sie muss im Wohnzimmer eines Schneiders zur Untermiete wohnen und die Kinder m ssen sich ihren Lebensunterhalt mehr oder weniger selbst verdie [...]

    11. As a child, Malka Treynovsky immigrated to the United States with her family She dreamed of being rich and having a happy family life However, after arriving, the Treynovsky family could only find a place to live in an overcrowded tenement in the Jewish section of the lower east side in New York City The family struggled to survive, and things continued to get worse.With luck, guile, and determination Malka is able to capitalize on a series of events to achieve considerable fame and fortune, and [...]

    12. A special thank you to Grand Central Publishing and NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for an honest review THE ICE CREAM QUEEN OF ORCHARD STREET, a rags to riches historical fiction, of a Jewish immigrant, Malka Treynovsky, a determined six year old girl from a poor childhood, set in 1913 flees Russia with her family, searching for the all American dream What a ride An exciting journey and fate of one driven, complicated, determined, yet colorful and troubled protagonist encountering misfortune o [...]

    13. I just finished reading The Ice Cream Queen of Orchard Street and really wishing I had ice cream As a well written book, Susan Gilman tells the story of an immigrant coming to America wanting to live the American dream as she achieves the goal of going from living in the poorest neighborhoods to living the life of the rich many life lessons and educational lessons provided as this book is definitely a page turner A wonderful read about my favorite food.

    14. I ve long been a sucker for books that cover huge swaths of American history, and this one fits the bill The story of a Russian immigrant who arrives in New York shortly before WWI, as told from her perspective in the 1980s, The Ice Cream Queen of Orchard Street tells not only of how lives change, but how the life of everyday people changed.Lillian Dunkle, who came to the country as Malka Treynovsky, is not a likable character She grew up in a poor village in Russia, then the tenements of the Lo [...]

    15. As usual, I leave plot summary to other reviewers and just share my opinion, so there may be some spoilers here I enjoyed this historical novel a lot The picture of 1910 s Lower East Side s squalor, poverty, and misery were a good antidote to the commonly written immigrant experience excellent same for descriptions of 1950 s polio epidemic and communist scare The protagonist Lillian has a unique voice, reminding me of Joan Rivers Funny, egotistical, poignant, brash I wanted to cheer her on as s [...]

    16. When she was the 6 year old Malka it was nearly a 4 star But I am very generous in stretching to a 3 star for the rest of this book Malka s trouble maker personality stays constant throughout and the writing skill is easy read Although the clich phrases of Yiddish and Italian as colloquial language inserts tended to irritate me as just too cutesy pat for the territory.I m a real, real hard audience on this one I m first generation and lived behind the store, was on the fruit wagon, opened the do [...]

    17. It s a rags to riches to well, let s not give anything away The Ice Cream Queen s story is not a new tale, but the novel is bright and clever and fresh and lots of fun to read It s probably the character of Malka Ninella Lillian who is smart, foolish, fearless, huge hearted and hard hearted that makes it spark Her love for her husband is such a sweet thing, her longing for her lost family which sometimes isn t lost enough is heartbreaking Even the stories of the Lower East Side have a new feel [...]

    18. A tale of horror, spunk and our heroine with a tongue that could cut heads off and does is fantastic Note The cover is awful, awful, awful, awful Doesn t relate to story at all.Love the tone, of a deep buoyant pathos what immigrants went through horrible A good read

    19. A fantastic debut novel I couldn t have loved it I almost passed it over because while I actually like the cover art, it confused me as to what type of book it really was But I am a sucker for a good immigrant story, and the whole ice cream twist seemed like an original idea and it was Though definitely very humorous in parts, it is a serious work than the cover suggests perfect for readers of literary and historical fiction alike.Lillian Dunkle is a terrific antihero and funny as heck Because [...]

    20. The Ice Cream Queen of Orchard StreetBy Susan Jane GilmanReleases 6 10 14Provided free through NetGalley in exchange for an honest reviewRating 5 bonesFinish Time 7 nights So good to be back to historical fiction My favorite genre by far I feel smarter And what a great story to get back into it I was a tad disappointed that the story was in fact not real It was loosely based on the Carvel Ice Cream story, according to the Q A with the author at the end A very much appreciated segment, as it answ [...]

    21. I am utterly enchanted by Susan Jane Gilman s novel This is an immigrant story the likes of which I had never read before Even the living conditions in Manhattan s Lower East Side are described better than in many novels I ve read, filled with the foul smells and ceaseless din of life, with despair and hopelessness The events in little Malka s life, the repeated losses and abandonment, the utter poverty and searing loneliness topped by becoming crippled would have broken any child Instead, the s [...]

    22. Don t fall for the chick lit cover This is a smart,sad, engrossing story about a brilliant and complicated often unlikeable woman that will most likely get overlooked due to the cheesy cover.A rags to riches historical fiction, of a Russian Jewish immigrant, Malka Treynovsky, a determined six year old girl from a VERY poor childhood, set in 1913 New York City An exciting journey and fate of one driven, complicated, determined, yet colorful and troubled protagonist encountering misfortune on her [...]

    23. The Ice Cream Queen of Orchard Street is one of the brightest and well written novels I have read in a long time Susan Jane Gilman tells the tale of Lillian Dunkle so completely and brilliantly that the reader dissolves into the pages of prose and wonderful characters There is nothing about this book that I don t simply love.The Ice Cream Queen of Orchard Street takes the reader on a journey from cover to cover A Jewish girl from Russia, Malka, and her incredibly poor family immigrate to America [...]

    24. It was brutal when I had to put this book down for nearly a week there was no way I was lugging a 500 page book with only 100 pages left to go on an airplane But all week I looked forward to getting back to Lillian Dunkle and her story Read this if you are a fan of historical fiction set in the early 20th Century If you grew up reading All of a Kind Family books, read this now I lost myself in Lillian s story Lillian the prickly and somewhat unreliable narrator and had a terrible time putting th [...]

    25. DNF at 59%While I loved the historical setting of the novel, Lillian herself didn t endear herself to me at all I did admire her business savvy and her drive but that was it.What she did view spoiler to the Dinello s after they tossed her out of the community was over the line Giving that paper from the long ago meeting to the federal agent and cooking up a lie to get rid of the competition freaking hell woman hide spoiler was the last straw.

    26. 5 starsVery good book Nice to know how one of the best ice cream places came to be Lillian Dunkle, The Ice Cream Queen of America
