** spoiler alert ** I found this book "ok." I like history and live on the History Channel, so the fact that the first 60% of the book was an alt-history lesson was okay.

But kind of turned me off was the characters didn't seem to have any emotion, didn't seem real. For example, 99% of the people of Earth get killed and the survivors don't seem to have any remorse, no survivors guilt, no depression, nothing. "Oh we'll get that bad guys..." anger, but come on. Everyone on the planet gets killed and it would have a HUGE emotional impact. Also the characters seemed one dimensional, didn't seem to have any depth.

The plot was interesting and I thought kind of cool though...
