In the Presence of Mine Enemies

I am currently reading Harry Turtledove’s alternate history novel, In the Presence of Mine Enemies.

In the Presence of Mine Enemies

Set in 2009 in a world in which Nazi Germany not only won the Second World War, but also won a Third World War against the United States; the novel concerns the lives of the last Jews in Berlin, who have survived despite the odds against them.

Like many of Harry Turtledove’s novels there are lots of characters who meet now and again, but generally are independent of each other in terms of storylines.

The premise is very interesting and I have enjoyed the book (nearly finished it), but it is nowhere near some of Harry’s other novels in terms of quality and I must say that I have enjoyed other similar backgrounds more, Fatherland for example.

Overall I would say if you enjoy this kind of alternate history and also enjoy Harry Turtledove novels then you will probably enjoy this book.

One thought on “In the Presence of Mine Enemies”

  1. This looks rather interesting. I have to say I’m such a newbie to reading alternate history that I’ve not actually read any Harry Turtledove novels yet. The one I just finished that got me hooked is Conspirator’s Odyssey: The Evolution of the Patron Saint by A.K. Kuykendall. He blends fact and fiction so well that I had a hard time figuring out which was which.
