The story is incredible. The multi-protagonist approach is absolutely the best way to tell alternate history. The varying perspectives give an incredibly holistic view of the universe Harry Turtledove has created. The narrator could have done more to distinguish these characters with more differing voices, although he already does a great job doing so.

This is the only audiobook I've ever given up on. I had to stop about six hours in. I love sci-fi, history, and alternate history, but this one just didn't do it for me. The problem: way too many point of view characters. I'm pretty sure it never went back to the same character within the first six hours, making it too hard to care about what was going on. I needed a character to grab onto and follow, but there were none. It's too bad, because I've heard a lot of good things about Turtledove. I won't be trying any more books of his.
