Opinion

From Library Staff

Alternative history at its most chilling: Charles Lindbergh defeats FDR in the 1940 presidential election and seeks accommodation with Hitler, even as the Roth family (and millions of other American Jews) watch anxiously from the sidelines.

Interesting parallels between what might have happened under Lindburg & what DID happen under Roosevelt.

At times I couldn't tell where this book was going and kept waiting for the other shoe to drop. Despite that feeling, I enjoyed the sidewinding nature of the descriptions of life of the main character. After finishing the book, I realized I'm thinking about it more now than I did when it was in my hands. It left me with a lingering eerie feeling, which is a good thing.

I mentioned this book as part of an ongoing review series called "Literary Counterparts."
