its a problem that the percentage of worthwhile jewish books on the market is MAYBE 10%.
For every "aleph-shin" and "every man a slave", there are 9 other books that need serious medical attention.

With that said, if one is looking for books that contain next to no graphic violence and sexual material, look no further that Artemis Fowl and Ranger's Apprentice. I find that SOME young adult books are written way better than grown-up stuff. Also, the objectionable material in nigh non-existent.

I agree but even every man a slave was weird, its not a realistic work of historical fiction, the style of writing was not to my liking, I did not like how he paints the events and dialogues

Read this years ago and really like it

http://www.amazon.com/Every-Spy-Prince-Intelligence-Community/dp/0395471028

I think it was these true books that paved the way for the spy trash taht flooded the jewis world later.  Mossad books were poppular in yeshiva and accepted, also Shea Hecht's book
