It's a fun idea to consider and handled very well and enjoyably by the author, I had no trouble grasping his concept and running with it. The characters are fun and interesting (I especially liked Brian) and there's very, very little that I would even consider criticizing. Get it, read it, enjoy.
One caveat/warning, if you're of the conservative political persuasion, as I am, please forgoe reading the author's forward. He plainly has a thing for George Bush, and the forward makes it clear he though GW administration was tantamount/comparable to the rise of fascism in Europe. So, do yourself a favor, and skip the forward, just enjoy the novel. It is very good.
Some of the characters could have been fleshed out a bit more, hence the 4 stars instead of 5. The story has a decent flow (I mostly listened to it, using text-to-speech), and I would read it again. I read mostly mysteries and science fiction, so this was a nice departure from my usual.
The initial premise is very limited in its scope, and the only defense that it could have is that anything is possible.
