Frighteningly realistic<br />

What would have happened if NAZI Germany had won WW2? Harry Turtledove weaves a frighteningly realistic tale of German Jews secretly living in Berlin in the 21st century. How they passed on the knowledge of their heratiage. This storyline, without the efforts of our Greatest Generation might have been. But thankfully it is not. Thank you Harry.

One of his best works

Turtledove still has more alternate history ideas, and this proves it. A take on what occurred in the USSR, but with humanized Nazi's, and a strong ending, one that means hope still lives for Jews. Hope he keeps up the work as long as he can in the years to come.

Meh

A novel of odd choices narrated by a man who makes equally odd choices. It’s a pastiche of historical episodes painted nazi and told half by Brits and half by pirates. Both author and narrator have done better. Much.

Good book. A bit slow, but it is a great story.

This was a great book. Admittedly, it is a bit slow. It’s focus is on a small group of regular people rather than being focused on huge events throughout. That being said, the story is very good, and it makes you care about the characters. This is probably the most believable historical fiction I have read.

The narrator is pretty good as well. Initially I thought some of the voices were a bit overdone, but after a while either the voices start to fit the characters or I just stopped noticing it.

Jews in Serbia

for starters, serbian chetnicks handed over 14 thausand jews and made sure everyone of them was properly registered with Gestapo.
only place in balkans to offer sanctuary was Albania, 0 jews were captured in Albania.
i understand this is an alternative history sci-fi, but showing serbs as saviour of jews will just insult the victims in any alternative univers.
i gave up listening after 1 hour.
