Helpful Score: 2

Alternate history novel. While fiction it incorporates many real characters and (of course) real events. It is riveting! Presents thought-provoking options regarding how events could have unfolded in the America of early 1940's. There is a sense of suspense and tension as the alternative-ness of the events are presented. Do not be surprised if you come away from this novel with an emotional reaction and desire to re-read history of the period. As with most Philip Roth books there is alot of introspection regarding jewish american life.
