review 1: LOVE a good 'doom and gloom' book! I really liked this book, though hated the character Vanessa, especially after what I am calling 'the Pickles incident'. It almost made me want to quit reading the book - but I know that is what some people would do in that situation though. M...

review 1: I've always enjoyed Harry Turtledove's alternative history novels. This time he's turned his attention to WWII. If you are familiar with alternative history works, you know the routine of changing some important aspect of "real" history and then write about how this changes the...

review 1: A sequel to HITLER'S WAR, continues the alternate history in which WW2 began a year early. Turtledove is a good writer but the book doesn't end, at least one major event happens off-stage. I'd like to see a few pages in the corridors of power among major players like Hitler, St...

review 1: After finishing this one, I have to scratch my head in wonder at the numerous backlash and overwhelming hatred it seems to garner. I'm not saying this is an amazing novel (it isn't), but at the same time, I'm not saying that it's as flat-out awful as a lot of readers would have y...

review 1: I think this was the best book of the series. An interesting alternate treatment to how slavery was ended. What would have happened if John Brown's raid on Harper's Ferry had been successful? What would have happened if the southern stated hadn't of suceded? No war of succession....

review 1: Straightforward retelling of Battle of Teutoburg Forest, A.D. 9. Very easy reading, level of writing--a YA novel. He gave backstory -- why Varus was chosen as governor, Roman legionary life, Arminius' plans for ambush -- then the actual battle, (description of which was very e...

review 1: This book was the worst Harry Turtledove I have read so far - which really isn't saying that much. I don't know how this book got to be published. My three-year old brother could have written a better novel. Turtledove's writing is so flawed. He repeats himself ENDLESSLY, and spe...

review 1: This is a great collection. Turtledove's Atlantis is a what-if world... what if the eastern seaboard broke away from the mainland in geologic time? Different evolutionary history, plants and animals, and... naturally, once discovered by Europeans, a different human history as wel...
