    One thought on “The Jerusalem Inception”

    1. I only read this for a break from all the non fiction I ve been reading, and maybe I should have researched a bit and picked a better work of historical fiction Its supposed to be about the 6 day war and the ghost of the holocaust that plagues its survivors great premise, bad writing I didn t expect a very good book and it wasn t If anybody has a better piece of fiction to help me make sense of the middle east please write to me I am not necessarily looking for reportage but narratives of ideol [...]

    2. I admire Mr Azrieli s superb writing abilities, but this book was painful to read As other reviewers have remarked, this book teaches the reader many things about Judaism and the history of Israel So, this might be a great book for a teacher to assign to his or her students as required reading or maybe it might serve as the basis for a deep and meaningful mini series on educational television However, I purchase and read so called thrillers for enjoyment and relaxation rather than for educationa [...]

    3. The Jerusalem Inception begins at the end of WWII, with a crazy love triangle where two men Abraham and Elie are both smitten with Tanya Galinski When they both lose Tanya, the story jumps forward 2 decades to 1967, going into the 6 day war When Tanya is turned down by, now Rabbi, Abraham, she then goes after Abraham s son, Lemmy Now Lemmy must decide where his loyalties lie, with his father and faith, or with the obviously alluring Tanya Meanwhile, Elie is plotting revenge and fates are shifted [...]

    4. The Jerusalem Inception is a historical fiction about the Six Days War of Israel in 1966 The main character is Lemmy short for Jerusalem He is the son of a Rabbi of an ultra conservative group of Jews living in Israel The author does a wonderful job of intertwining the story of Lemmy s father, his friends Elise and Tanya who had all be victims of the Nazi regime during WWII with the Lemmy and the time leading up to the Six Days War This is the 1st book of a trilogy I could not put down this book [...]

    5. The Jerusalem Inceptionother master piece of Avraham AzrieliThis author did it again for me, the way he writes is so captivating, even I don t like this type of histories and I get so sensitive for being connecting with friends and family that were part of that history, Mr.Azrieli took me inside each page wanting to know what is it going to happen next The way he transmit suspenses and the twist on it, its just great I recommend this book, and it is in my list of gifts for next holidays.

    6. Avraham Azrieli certainly knows how to craft an exciting read His combination of history, politics, and the human spirit make for a suspenseful page turner that will captivate readers to the end I didin t know a lot of the historical background involving the Six Day War and loved the way Azrieli was able to weave the events into a thoughtful political thriller As I read the book, the characters just came to life and I carried them with me even when I wasn t reading That s the sign of a good book [...]

    7. The novel offers strong characters in demanding circumstances, the time up to the 1967 War The political undercurrents added to the enjoyment as did the backdrop of orthodox Judaism Jerusalem Gerster reminds us of the struggles of coming of age and the hard choices to be made.

    9. Chaim Potok fans arise, this one s for you It would be difficult to create a truer history of the events leading to the 1967 war between Israel and the Arab states, using fict ional and some real people A great read and a lesson which the West doesn t want to hear.

    10. I enjoyed novel this even though at times I struggled with some details For instance, how did Jerusalem end up with a nickname Lemmy, when the nickname would only work in English I tried to make it work in Hebrew all through the novel Layimi Yimmi Limey However, I identify with the difficulty of translating Hebrew or Farsi words and Jewish cultural characteristics to an American, English speaking audience, so I give the author a pass for something that would bother very few of his American reade [...]

    24. The thread of this story, which follows the lives of three young Holocaust survivors, winds through a densely woven fabric of historical context starting with the final days of WWII Germany up to and including the Six Day War in the Middle East some 22 years later The juxtaposition of German Jews to Israeli Jews to isolated Orthodox Jews and their respective difficulties rectifying reality with spirituality makes for somewhat engrossing reading, though the story often gets bogged down in minutae [...]
