And that said, I don’t see what all the buzz is about. The story is an alternate history and it’s got an intriguing premise. But I just had a hard time getting into or caring about the story or characters for any sustained period of time. There were flashes where the book was bordering on brilliance, but there was a lot in between that just never grabbed me.
A disappointment. Maybe I had my expectations up so far that no book could ever live up to them.
