Description

Best-selling master of alternate history Harry Turtledove offers a new vision of America after World War I. In 1920, as veterans question the very nation they fought for, socialist Upton Sinclair challenges Teddy Roosevelt for the presidency. And in the defeated Confederacy, a fiery racist whips his followers into a frenzy.

Well written & thought provoking

I have read the whole series, although the first book in the series is, unfortunately, not available through Audible (but all the rest are). Very well written, researched, believable, complex and thought provoking. If you are a history buff, or, for that matter, a science fiction reader, this will really scratch a whole bunch of itches all at the same time. Guidall is, as usual, excellent.

Alternate History????

Initially, I thought that the idea of 'Alternate History's' was kind of crazy. But, after listening to this book, I have found the genre very interesting. The narrator is top-notch and the story line is captivating. I have found myself actually searching for more audios of this type.

Genius!

The correlation between post war CSA and post war Germany after WW1 is genius. This entire epic from “How Few Remain” till now is Turtledove’s way of showing that any civilization can plunge into Hate, Depravity, and Genocide. I furthermore think it’s important to know that with all the right factors the capacity for evil is in all of us despite our lofty notions.

Once is never enough.

Where does American Empire rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I get lost in these extremely well crafted stories.

What was one of the most memorable moments of American Empire?

To think that Latter-day Saints could fight so well gives this LDS reader (listener) pride.

Which character – as performed by George Guidall – was your favorite?

There is a private from Utah that kept me laughing all during his inquiry.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

If you have 3 days to sit listening to anything I hope you have nothing else going on.

Any additional comments?

I enjoy this author's works very much.

Started Hopeful, Ended Disappointed

I bought this audiobook with the hope of really getting into the Alternate History genre. Instead, it was too many uninteresting characters and not enough history. The final 7 hours I finished only because I'm obsessive complusive. If you're a fan of Turtledove, you might like. If not a fan, try something else.

Dull

I wish the Great War series was available, as it seems the best part of the story was there. This is a slow moving, dull book, I did not finish. Well-developed characters, but dull. Large, complex story, but a dull book. Does not keep the listener's interest, nothing to grab on to and look forward to.

What???? Really???

I really enjoy historical fiction but this story is ridiculous! I couldn't even finish half of it. The story is so unbelievable; you can't just change the parts of history that you want to willy nilly. It has to be reasonable in how it flows. Don't know if the author has alternative motivations but this story was definitely NOT worth any amount of time or money. I have said in reviews before that I thought George Guidall could save any story BUT in this case EVEN HE couldn't save this one.

Rubbish

After more than 200 audiobooks this is the first one I didn't finish. This attempt at alternative history ended up with very uninteresting characters veiled racism in the name of the 'story' and a generally boring plotline.

Don't start with the xth book

I have read the series that starts with How Few Remain a few years ago and wanted to listen to it now. For that, it would have been nice to start with the first book in the series. Turtledoves Alternate Histories are usually not stand alone books, so I had to think hard to remember what the former doings of the characters were. The reader distinguishes very well between the huge cast of thousands with different accents without becoming ridicilous.
