I’ve read all the Allon novels, as have many of you. Each year I have looked forward to the new Daniel Silva Allon novel which appears in July. I will not be doing that again.
I pre-ordered the latest which appeared on my Kindle I think July 14.
I read it. I regret ordering it, particularly since I did not look at the now-existing Amazon reviews which would have warned me about it.
Here’s the deal: Daniel Silva is now WOKE.
Spoilers, not that it matters:
The cause of all the hatred against Jews for the past two thousand years is the phrase “His blood be upon us and our children” from the Gospel of Matthew.”
All the populist politicians in Europe are crypto-Nazis; and by implication Trump.
Terrorist attacks in Germany are not made by Islamic extremists; anyone against immigration of Muslims into Europe is a crypto-Nazi; the attacks are themselves planned by a secret crypto-Nazi order of the Catholic Church to get the fictional equivalent of AfD elected to power in Germany.
Cardinals of the Catholic Church are easily bribed by the crypto-Nazi order to vote for their candidate for pope; and one of the members of the order murders the previous pope.
Paul Krugman is a “brilliant economist” whose writings on the European right are considered gospel (pun intended).

Oh, and if you’re an evangelical Christian, you’re a fool believing in the Bible. Never mind that evangelical Christians are the biggest non-Jewish supporters of Israel—maybe even including Jewish supporters.

I have never written a book anti-recommendation, but these days, unfortunately I doubt this is the last.

Thank you sir. I hate when an author decides to derail stories with idiocy of this sort.

I'll leave a review stating why I'll not be purchasing this drivel.

Good luck; they may or may not let you post a review for a book you haven’t bought. I posted a one-star review, and clicked “helpful” on all the negative reviews.

I keep a list of authors/books I've read. I see I read the first of the series in late 2018 but moved on to a different author after it. I don't remember why but apparently I wasn't all that impressed with book 1.

Not disagreeing but am a little slow and not understanding.

Seems like popular politicians tend to be fascist or crypto fascist. Not crypto Nazi. And that doesn’t seem to align with trump other than the fallacious popular belief that it doesn’t.

I’m not really following the politics here but I’m not versed on the topic which is why I find many SF threads enlightening.

In any case, if the book reads clearly as anti trump, that’s discouraging.

Thank you for the tip. Just scratched it from my wish list. Bye bye Silva. I remain unwoke.

I had read all of Silva's Gabriel Allon books up until a couple years ago when I noticed he was starting to sound more and more anti-Trump. Disappointing, as I enjoyed the Allon character.
