According to Eli, his book is the last remaining copy of the Bible, as all other copies were intentionally destroyed following the nuclear war thirty years ago.
He says that he was led to the book by a voice in his head, which then directed him to travel westward to a place where it would be safe. The voice assured him that he would be protected and guided on his journey. Eventually, Eli and Solara find an isolated house.
They fall into a trap, but they manage to allay the suspicions of the residents, George and Martha, who invite them in for tea. When Eli realizes that the couple are cannibals , they attempt to leave just as Carnegie and his henchmen arrive.
In the ensuing shootout, George, Martha, and many of Carnegie's men are killed, and Eli and Solara are captured. Carnegie threatens to kill Solara unless Eli surrenders the Bible.
With the Bible now in his possession, Carnegie shoots Eli and leaves him for dead.
Solara escapes by strangling the driver of the truck that she was in and throwing a hand grenade under another truck. She then drives back towards the house to find Eli.
Rather than chase her, Carnegie returns to the town because his sole remaining vehicle is running low on fuel. Solara finds Eli, and they drive until they reach the Golden Gate Bridge.
They then row to Alcatraz Island , where they find a group intent on preserving what remains of literature and music. Eli tells the guards that he has a copy of the Bible. Once inside, Eli, revealed to be blind, begins to dictate the New King James Version of the Bible from memory to Lombardi, the leader of the group. She pretends that she cannot remember how to read it, telling Carnegie that his leg wound has become infected , and due to limited enforcers, the people have begun to run amok.
At the sanctuary, Eli has died, but not before he finished reciting the entire book. The printing press at Alcatraz begins producing copies of the Bible, and Lombardi places one on a bookshelf between the Torah and Tanakh on one side and the Quran on the other.
Solara, though offered sanctuary, chooses to return home, taking with her Eli's machete and other possessions.
Rubin pays due attention to the immense organisational and technical problems associated with building entire city districts from prefabricated materials — some of them specific to the managed economy of the GDR, others, such as the lack of durability of the materials, generic p.
Despite acknowledging the many difficulties of modernist housing projects, Rubin in many respects draws a more upbeat picture of life on these estates than is customary, as he readily acknowledges himself.
As chapter three makes clear, many Berliners positively longed to escape from the cramped living conditions of the decaying inner cities or the rural backwardness of their villages.
They very much looked forward to moving into bright new flats in functionalist housing estates such as the Marzahn complex. In a fascinating section, Rubin draws attention to the way in which the new urban environment was experienced and appropriated by children, illustrating the extent to which concrete and children seemed to be two sides of the same productivist ethos that characterised the GDR.
More broadly, the section is a fascinating reminder of the importance of the individual life cycle for the ways in which environments, spaces and social relations are experienced. Rubin substantiates this claim on two levels. He demonstrates that the rational layouts and normed interiors of the new housing estate provided ideal environments for state surveillance, and indeed were partially designed with that objective in mind.
More broadly, Rubin also demonstrates that the very sense of community that developed on these estates, revolving around such seemingly mundane things as beautification initiatives and festivities, cannot be divorced from the structures of power pervading the society of the GDR.
These are fascinating and highly original points and insights. The study also demonstrates the advantages of theoretically informed reasoning that is equally at home in critical geography as in in urban studies and the study of everyday life.
Rubin himself readily concedes that erasure was an aspiration of Socialist city planners rather than a reality that they managed to achieve, with traces of recent and earlier pasts emerging as the excavators set to work on the building site chapter two.
But my caveats go beyond the obvious point that there was no truly virgin land to be found on the outskirts of Berlin, or for that matter, anywhere in a densely populated central European country such as East Germany. While people do not sleep in monuments, they do not spend their entire lives on the new estates either. One may assume that even Marzahners did, on occasion, venture back into the centre of Berlin, where they would be confronted with reminders of the recent and more distant pasts, not least of all their own.
One may further assume that they also maintained filial and friendship relations with people who continued to live elsewhere.
