I sincerely hope E. Michael Jones plans a sequel or other novels depicting in a similar vein the deliberate distraction of Christian society in general and Catholic society in particular. There're needed.
The idea of course is old, a woman's allure has led many to their downfall, both in a physical and a metaphysical world.
I tend to read as many books as I can by Michael Jones. He's a brilliant scholar, and among the teeny tiny minority of people willing to reveal disturbing truths about harmful influences on our society. I highly recommend his book on Cardinal Krol. It is extremely illuminating about what has been done to the Catholic Church since the 60s. People who disagree with his views often call him harsh names such as anti-Semite. However, those same people don't and can't criticize his research. When people cannot argue with truth, they resort to name calling.
Why four stars? I don't know. 5 stars for being fascinating. 1 star for its soul sickness. I am not recommending this to be read as other than a strange artifact, but I am happy that I got this perspective, as warped as it turned out to be.
It IS funny, maybe in unintentional ways. It is interesting to hear the logic of its characters' antisemitism but at the core it is the same broad generalization and the same scapegoating that is in any bigotry. Jones appears to believe that his holy Church has been degraded by Judaism and throws in scary actual Bible quotes (1 Thessalonians 2) as support.
In the end I understand this book as the unintentional story of a Christian subculture (far right-wing Catholicism) that won't take responsibility for its own failures.
