Review: The Jerusalem Inception
The Jerusalem Inception by Avraham Azrieli
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
The Jerusalem Inception by Avraham Azrieli is a engaging book that takes place just before the Six Day War in Israel where several Arab countries were defeated by Israel. The book combines a number of facts and historical references combined with flawless historical fiction that engrosses the reader into a thoughtful, thrilling plot.
The story takes place between a number of important figures in the story. Tanya is a woman who was a Jewish girl in the midst of atrocities in World War II who had a Nazi lover. Due to circumstances during the war, she met two young men, Abraham and Elie. They saved her, but then thought she was killed in the forest by wolves. Years later, Tanya is alive and well serving in the Mossad. Elie is also working for the government. Abraham, however, is the leader of the ultra-Orthodox sect. He son, Jerusalem, is following in his footsteps, but once he meets Tanya, he is shown a world outside of his religious upbringing.
All of the main characters end up playing a vital role in the events of 1967 to free the country and provide room for its rebirth. There are many readers who would love this story, including those that read historical fiction.
