A thought provoking "what if..." novel
Reviewed in Australia on 27 March 2015
I loved the concept of this story and wasn't disappointed by Ben Elton's story telling skills having read several of his novels in the past. Without giving away any of the plot, I must say that I wasn't surprised by the ending - hence 4-stars and not 5. That said, the novel was engaging and thought provoking in the "what if..." vain. If you are keen on historical fiction with a bit of a twist, then this is the book for you.
