    The original book is very good, good way to mix fiction with reality. The summary is excellent too, recommend you to read both before and after the book. This is a comprehensive and rich history about many "what if"

    By SaveYourVote
    I really like when the novels with fictional stories take place in a real historical moment, they really account for the imagination of how tragedies occur. And this book as an analysis is very informative, it doesn't ignores the background and makes it a good summary
