Description

New York Times best-selling author Eric Flint has received glowing critical praise for his Ring of Fire alternate history series. In this first installment, a West Virginia town is transported from the year 2000 to 1631 Germany at the height of the Thirty Years’ War. Thrust into conflict, the town residents must also contend with moral issues, such as who should be considered a citizen.

Great book

A bit optimistic and beyond American centric there is a lot of fun and food for thought. Narrator is wonderful as well.

Good premise bad execution

The book is inconsistent with some of it's facts and the lacks any tension. After the first battle you can see how every battle will go after that. Even the final battle the enemy is stupid and doesn't bring torch's to their mission to destroy a mostly wooden town. The pro American slant was fine at first but got on my nerves and everyone not agreeing and bowing to the main characters reason and logic is a bad guy. A german women that has only a few months of training at most with a pistol begins sharpshooting with a pistol in a moving vehicle barely ever missing.

Overall I like the premise but things are far to easy for the characters for their to be any tension and the state building is shallow at best mostly focusing on how great American politics is again with everything being made as easy as possible.

Another great history blender from Eric Flint.


The reader is masterful, top drawer!
This is a big adventure with big characters and big ambitions. If you share the opinions of the few scathing reviewers concerning superhuman capacities and contrived circumstances, the main characters really are masterful and over-achieving after the "ring of fire" changes their personal equations. And that's OK. If the premise of the novel does not clue you in concerning the less than factual (totally imaginary) nature of the story, that is not the author's problem. It features time travel for goodness sake! If it is seen as pro-American, the author is American, as is the intended audience
This is a rollicking yarn and it's a good one. It is an unfettered thought experiment concerning the destabilizing power of new technologies and rapid social reorganization. Good fun! Beware though, there are plenty more books in this 1632 universe and David Weber co-wrote the next one in the series.

Comes off as fanfiction/harem romance.

Very weak on the human factor. The Authors should research before writing on subjects. The characters seem to just get along with no sense of panic or wonder in their new situation where it came off as a romance novel which destroyed the actual flow of the story.

Another unforgivable sin this novel commits is the troupe of the natural born sniper prodigy where at one point the writer is trying the build out a character as the next god of sniping but it comes off as extremely forced and contrived. In a force of 800 only one person is shooting... that was the point I gave up on the novel.

Empire

An ode to the American Empire. An overheated romance and feminist tome.
Utterly dreadful, but a good reader.
