At first I was disappointed that the book focused almost exclusively on historical people, because I was interested in imagining what life would be like for the common person if the South had won the Civil War. But I soon realized that the people who were made famous in our history weren't necessarily rising to fame in this alternative history. Where would Mark Twain be without a defeated South? A newspaper editor in San Francisco. Where would Lincoln be if the North hadn't defeated the South? Alive and disgraced, trying to redirect the attention of the Republican party.

Apart from the unnecessary sex scenes (who cares, anyway?), I find this to be an intriguing concept pulled off in a realistic way.
