    New Twist on the War on Terrorism

    Zubrin does a fine job of blending the satire and sci-fi genres into one cohesive novel with Holy Land. I'm sure most of you are wondering what this reads like, well thinking something along the lines of Swift meets Bradbury... The tongue-in-cheek satire is definitely there throughout the whole story with a huge amount of sci-fi action/drama. The plot involves the struggle between the United States Government (Arabs) and the Minervans (Jews) fighting for Kennewick, Washington (Israel). The Western Galactic Empire (USA) is forced to intervene and all kinds of crazy hell break loose... There are many crazy twists that will make you laugh, and many parts that will cause you to cringe. Overall, Holy Land takes a fairly liberal view at the War on Terrorism and shows how hypocritical the all of the participants have been and continue to be. With that said, the first 100 pages are a little tedious (not very much action). After that the novel picks up pace and becomes very fluid. Buy it, you wont be sorry!
