    " I found this book to jump around too much for my taste. This is the first of Turtledove's books that I have read, but I felt so disconnected from all of the stories. "

    " On it goes. In Harry Turtledove's alternate world, some of the things that happened in Europe between the world wars happen in the United States and Confederate States instead; interesting to think about how people here would have felt and acted in those circumstances. "

    " The end of a trilogy that deals more with politics than war, which I find much more interesting. Characters that we've known for books are dying, replaced by their children who were newborns in previous titles. Turtledove's imagination is without limits. "

    " Great set up for the coming showdown between the USA and CSA. The one gripe is using the Holocaust as an entertainment component of the novel. "

About the Narrator

George Guidall, winner of eighty AudioFile Erphones Awards, has twice won the prestigious Audie Award for Excellence in Audiobook Narration. In 2014 the Audio Publishers Association presented him with the Special Achievement Award for an audiobook narrator of exceptional stature and accomplishment. During his thirty-year recording career he has recorded over 1,100 audiobooks, won multiple awards, been a mentor to many narrators, and shown by example the potential of fine storytelling. Among Guidall’s narration achievements are Crime and Punishment, The Iliad, and John Irving’s A Widow for One Year, which earned him an Audie Award for best unabridged narration of a novel, an honor he captured again for his rendition of Wally Lamb’s I Know This Much Is True. Guidall’s forty-year acting career includes starring roles on Broadway, an Obie Award for best performance off Broadway, and frequent television appearances.
