Because I'm pretty much a sucker for alternate-world fiction, when I saw this book available at a flea market for a bargain price, I snapped it up. As my rating suggests, I wasn't disappointed --though I was rounding up; if I could give half stars in Goodreads rating system, I'd probably have awarded it three and a half.
