    Daniel Quinn takes on Harry Turtledove

    Alternate history books are hard to construct in ways that allow both realistic characters and inventive plot lines. The problem is that normally everyone knows what the real history is. Or do you? This Quinn book was a predictable offshoot of a sub-plotline in Ishmael dealing with whether we would know that history was fictional if there was no one left alive who knew what the real history was. I think it's a good direction for him to be going. Beyond Civilization was very preachy and he does better with novels. My main criticism is one I have of all Quinn books - that they are under developed. His books should be twice as long and devote more genuine attention to character development. Instead he rushes through the necessary literary constructions in order to present his philosophical views expeditiously.

    Highly Recommended

    This book is outstanding, in that it helps you realize that possibly everything you have learned is based more on faith than on fact. After all, its the winners who write history. It brings to focus how sad our educational system is and how willing we are to abide by it. Read this book if you not only love a good, incredibly surprising story, but also enjoy melting the conventions around you. Those who won't enjoy this book are those who are secure and pleased with all the intentions of those around them, and don't care to know any other way.
