Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
I would recommend this to fans of the 1634 universe. This book has a lot of story lines revolving around women, so women may appreciate a look into history and it's alternate path in this series. Virginia is well versed in history, but sometimes the history lessons slow down the story. One of the charms of this universe is the many characters and plot-lines that make it closer to real life and not like a heroic adventure where all revolves around one key character. However, if you get tired of tracking a lot of characters, you may get frustrated trying to follow the many plots in this book. Overall, I liked it, but needed to listen in bigger chunks of time than I usually do to follow more easily.
If you’ve listened to books by Eric Flint and Virginia DeMarce before, how does this one compare?
This is much better than the Ram Rebellion
What does George Guidall bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Guidall's French pronunciation sounds good. His accents for the Austro-Hungarians did not sound different than the Americans.
Did 1634 inspire you to do anything?
buy 1635: The Eastern Front
Any additional comments?
I loved how they gave an Austrian princess a much happier ending in the book than she got in real life.

so long and boring until about 1/2 way. the second half is okay. George the narrator knocks ot out of the park. but it is still hard to listen to.
