    Yes we are. The main problem with this story is the amount of hi

    Yes we are. The main problem with this story is the amount of history Mr. Ball tries to cover in a very short convoluted time frame. I believe it would have been much better to cut about 30% of the historical references out and stick with a fluid story. As it is, the reader is propelled from 1600 to 2157then back to 1865 to 1941 to 2001 and back to 2157 in 30,000 words. Talk about a monumental undertaking! And that is the problem. Along with that, because one is trying to cover so much in so little time, discrepancies surfaced with some of the historical references:

    1) Joseph Goebbels was not the head of the Gestapo. That would be Heinrich Himmler. 
    2) There’s a reference to “before Denmark is completely occupied by Germany. Denmark fell in a day. I believe the author was referring to Holland. 

    Honestly, this book could easily have been, if not one, two additional works. Perhaps the appeal would have been there. 

     I recognize the time and effort Mr. Ball into this work, but as it stands, three stars.
