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.
Loved this book. Lots of twists and turns in this book. I didn't know much about European politics and history but Ben Elton made the subject interesting and what could happen if we could undo history. A very good read.
Elton has addressed the eternal question, what would you change if you could go back in time. As usual his story is well thought out and makes you question your own thoughts. I was highly entertained and loved the plot twists and revelations. Ben Elton's books are getting better and better.
Mr Elton I have not liked everything you have written. But I loved this. There are some moments in this one, where having studied history, you sucked me right in and there were no time travel logic misses like Back to the Future.
Wow, what an interesting concept! I loved reading the story and am still recalling parts to discuss and argue about. As always, Ben Elton writes a great story and includes many twists to make his stories hard to put down right until the end! You've got to read this one.
Loved this book and was fascinated with all the historical references. Very amusing and the characters were very likeable. Loved the quirky story line and the constant twists and turns. Would definitely recommend.
