Best. Alternate. History. Novel. Ever.
Seriously: Best. Alternate. History. Novel. Ever. Period. End Sentence.
I love alternate history novels. I like a window in to worlds where established history traveled down a different road from our own. I love visions of the myriad different ways the modern world could have turned out. I adore the questions of identity arise when you see how people could have turned out differently had they lived through altered circumstances.
