Enfold Me is also not a classic psychological or political thriller that races from scene to scene until the bad guys lose. Yes, the latter third of the book is a page turner with shocking scenes and an ending that will surprise. But this book is mostly a gut-wrenching tale of a man whose all-too-familiar family and professional life is upended by the combination of a natural disaster and the insanity of fanatic politics. When his world goes insane, he struggles to survive, to cope and ultimately to decide what is moral, when all sense of morality had disappeared.
This is a well-written, powerful, and disturbing novel, uncomfortably close to reality. It’s the kind of story that will stay with you long after you’ve finished.
"Israel is no more"...
I can imagine talking to Judith Stitzel or Enid Portnoy on the WVU campus...both professors and my friends. What could I say to them? I realize nothing--but I could hug them...and hold them as we cried...
So I would have also if I had met Daniel Blum, the main character. He, too, was an American, but he had relocated to Israel when he married. He was there during The Fall...
By the time you read this novel, and I hope that you do, you will not be able to tell whether the destruction you will read about was done by the earthquake, or by the military actions that immediately took place... by neighboring countries of what was once called...Israel...
Daniel Blum knew only that he could be thankful that his home still stood, even though there were no working utilities. Daniel was the type of guy that had puttered around at home and he had installed solar panels from which earlier he had even sold electricity he did not use. Now, he used it secretly, at odd times, so that "they" would not realize that he had access to his computer. He had finally gotten email back up to go out at least, so he spent time writing to his children and his wife who had gone to America until they could come back--if they ever could.
He had been on his own for about a year now, but was helping with the resistance, routinely providing reports after watching...
[Let me stop here a minute to share that I read the ebook version of this novel. Sometimes this makes it harder to fully pick up on what is happening, since there is usually no blurb of the contents provided. And since you can not easily go back and find a certain part to better understand...So I will say that I had a little confusion when flashbacks started...I beg you to work to pick up what is somehow diluted when ebook formats limit effective, easy exploration of a novel.]
It was a familiar face, therefore, that appeared at Daniel's door one day. Nobody had knocked since before...The Fall...
George Farrah and Daniel Blum had been involved in a horrible event on the college campus where they both attended.George was a man of action, of controlling a situation. Daniel cared, but was not quite as prepared... During a race-related incident, a young girl had been killed. George had been involved in calming the situation but Daniel had also--George had accused Daniel of causing the death...
Now he was here, explaining to Daniel that he represented the group who would make all arrangements to get him to the United States. Daniel was having a hard time even trusting George, and certainly didn't want to travel with him!
Readers should be prepared to experience the devastation, the fear, the anger of war, especially when those who have invaded act brutal, having no limits in what they are willing to do. Even the gangs which had been active in Israel, now were leaders in acting freely and openly to rob and kill their former neighbors--all with the help of the Egyptian government representatives who had claimed they had come into the country to help... of course, expecting to be paid for their efforts.
Witness those who come to claim the materials brought by UN workers and must fight each other in order to keep from starving...
Now George wanted Daniel to come with him, through all the dangers of escaping without being killed or captured. But, Daniel kept questioning, not completely trusting anybody...
The stunning ending will show why...
This complex life story must be absorbed in toto. Daniel had experienced much early in his life that led to his eventual PTSD-like nightmares and other symptoms. Flashbacks to the harsh realities of dealing with white supremacists had never left him. When it extends beyond into something far worse, then is when you will finally come to know Daniel Blum. The psychological suspense is slow and prodding, so be prepared to meet Daniel on his terms, in his life, as he understood it...
An amazing story, if you dare read it...
