Just finished and have to say that this is the better of this duology(Altered States). After a hiatus from reading my beloved Deathlands series because of bad writing in my opinion, I picked these up at a local used bookstore. Even though it is the better of the two, it is still not so good. It has make me reaffirm my decision to not read any more of these titles because I cannot bear the slow disintegration of this series. The characters do not act like they should, and it makes me sad to read it. Axler must be rolling in his grave at the thought of what has become of his Deathlands series. Read(or re-read) the first of the Deathlands series if you need to have some Ryan Cawdor and frineds in your mind.
As a fan of Conan and Harry Turtledove I enjoyed this book. I felt some of Conan's early life went contrary to what i had known from reading all of the other Conan books, but it was a good read nonetheless!
This book is a great additoin to the WorldWar series. After I had finished those and the Colonization set, I had no hopes of a new book even though he kind of left the end hanging for a possible book. I was so happy when I saw this book. I highly recommend it for anyne who is a Turtledove fan or has read the other books in this set.
An interesting account of what life might be like for Jewish people caught in a world where the Nazis actually won World War II. Not a pretty picture, but it is a very rich account of people who persevere.
I enjoyed this book. Having a brother in law who served in the Gulf War I was hopefully able to see a bit of what his life was like in this time of history. Was an entertaining read, better than the movies as most books are.
I plowed my way through this one even though it was sub par. It is the first of the Altered States Duo(I hope it is only two, I don't want to read abother after these two!) The second is better than this one, but still bad. Characters do not act like they should, its kind of like the author read a synopsis of the timeline then tried to write a book without getting afeel for the principle characters in this book. Also needs to read a ballistics manual before attempting to write another book with firearms in it. Don't bother with this one.
