Excellent story - I couldn't get enough. Stayed up 'til 3:30am to finish. I'll look for more books by Cliff Ball.
The book is full of clichees about liberal conspiracies to destroy America, and for me that ruined the suspension of disbelief. One can entertain (and more than that, find stimulating) speculative ideas like time travel, faster than light travel, certain alternate histories, but some aspects of this book strain credulity too far. Having a super-hero president like McBride is inconceivable in a country where presidential campaigns cost billions. Just like the other flat characters, McBride doesn’t undergo significant character development. As far as the strawmen presented as antagonists, the less said the better.
I do think it is good for people to exercise their creative imagination, and there is a certain consistency in this book’s universe. I would probably have given it more stars were I a young teen with little knowledge of the historical context. Last time I wrote any sci-fi fiction was in a creative writing class in high school, and though I got an A for it, and it was objectively worse than this.
So I would give it 2 stars for the effort and imagination, and making the story interesting enough and suspenseful enough for me to read to the end even though politically I am at the opposite end of the spectrum from the author.
I didn't like it all that much but I did read the whole thing so in my rating system the earns it a minimum of two stars.
I noticed a fair number of writing errors and I find that annoying.
Much of the science presented as science fiction doesn't cut it for me, just not especially believable.

Worst narration I've ever heard. The amateurish individual constantly mispronounced names (Piotr was mangled into Pie-otor.) Pathetic. Read morePublished on April 22, 2014 by Len Futterman
