This is a fairly quick read, but still not worth it. The premise is very interesting--the Axis power win and split the United State in half. There are so many possibilities that could be explored. Instead, the authors goes into incoherent storylines related to "I Ching" and alternate realities. The story doesn't really end, it just runs out of steam. It will frustrate you more than entertain you, by the time you get to the final few pages. I wanted to like this book, but it wasn't meant to be.
