I read an advance copy of this one to prepare for the interview I had with Jason Heller for my podcast Machine Readable. Taft 2012 is a welcome jump in quality from publisher Quirk Books, publisher of books like Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. Mr. Heller manages to balance a great light satirical tone throughout the novel while dropping historical facts that don't bog the narrative down. Taft comes off as quite the likeable guy because Mr. Heller decides to focus on character rather than the politics or science fiction elements of the story. A highly enjoyable read from a debut author, I look forward to his rumored YA series and steampunk novel!
