What would have happened had the South won the Civil War? Harry Turtledove, a practitioner of "alternate history" who has applied his craft previously to the epoch (GUNS OF THE SOUTH), postulates an answer to this question in a novel that reads as if adapted from a TV miniseries. Here the situations are all. Those who enjoy this type of thing will not mind the awkward dialogue and simple-minded characterizations. George Guidall not only doesn't mind, he throws himself into the lengthy scenes with gusto, taking great delight in portraying Lincoln, Custer, Grant, Teddy Roosevelt, Stonewall Jackson, et al. He makes it worth the listen. Y.R. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 02]
