really liked it

I'll admit it... I'm a history nerd. I love reading books about wars and presidents and such. My friends often see me in class with my nose stuck in a history novel, encyclopedia, dictionary, and such. And about 80% of the time, it's about Lincoln and the Civil War.
This one was very different though. After I finished reading this book, I wondered how the world would have turned out if everything in that book actually happened. Of course, one should not analyze what could have happened too much; much of the material in the book is considered fictional and unlikely to have happened.
Some critics loathe this book, but I delighted in reading it just because it was a fantastical mixture of fiction and history combined in the perfect increments to create a sort of thriller story. For those that love history, read this book and see what you think.
