New York Times bestselling author Harry Turtledove has intrigued readers with such thought-provoking "what if..." scenarios as a conquered Elizabethan England in Ruled Britannia and a Japanese occupation of Hawaii in Days of Infamy and End of the Beginning. Now, in the first of a brand-new trilogy, he rewrites the history of the world with the existence of an eighth continent. Atlantis lies between Europe and the East Coast of Terranova. For many years, this land of opportunity lured dreamers from around the globe with its natural resources, offering a new beginning for those willing to brave the wonders of the unexplored land.

    " I expected a lot more from this book. The premise really had me intrigued. I wish the author had picked a character and fully developed him instead of going back and forth. I wanted to enjoy the whole story, but I wound only enjoying parts of it. I'll give it another try later. "

    " It started off interesting, but as it moved forward through generations my interest started to wane. And once war broke out, it devolved into battle descriptions, which I don't care about for real or fantasy. "

    " I just couldn't get into this one. Quit part-way through. "

    " Turtledove is a well-known author of speculative fiction, and particularly alternative histories, though I've never read any of his books. So, I spotted this at the library and thought it would be a good place to start. Hopefully, for the sake of his other books, it wasn't. Essentially, the alternative in this history, is that the American Eastern seaboard is seperated from the rest of America by about two hundred miles and thus sitting in the Atlantic much closer to Europe. This leads to an alternate history of discovery and colonization. The real problem with this book is that this is just not an interesting premise. Turtledove is obviously a proficient writer, and there were several scenes in the book that were very entertaining, but by and large, the novel's overriding idea was so bland that I just could not wait to move on.
