The sequel to 1632 — a story of a town of American hillbillies getting transported to 1632 Germany — reads very much like the prequel, except it wastes more time on boring characters rather than concentrating on the alternate history. Menawhile, the obvious American supremacism gets even harder to stomach.
It’s a competent book, but I felt as though I was retreading the same old ground and I wasn’t getting much from the whole read.
|Fascinating concept of trying to adapt to a different era of history||Feels more like a string of random set-pieces rather than a full-fledged story|
|Enlightening on medieval politics and culture||Some action scenes are suspect to the suspension of disbelief|
|The strong vibe of American nationalism might rub some people the wrong way|
