    1. To say that Doctor Benjamin Franklin s Dream America is an inventive work of fiction is like calling the ocean a tad salty Damien Lincoln Ober s debut novel, published by Equus Press, takes the shape of a series of 56 vignettes about every single one of the men who signed the Declaration of Independence, at the moment of his death That in and of itself would be an impressive level of literary gimmickry for a work of historical fiction However, the last words of the men who for all intents and pu [...]

    6. An alternative history of the birth of the United States where the Internet exists and everyone is connected to the Cloud This Book Is Bonkers Witches Curses Aliens Sea Monsters Vampires Thomas Jefferson And that s just the gist READ THIS.

    7. After an interesting beginning, this turned into a well written alternative history by numbers in which the signatories of the Declaration of Independence are eliminated one by one via computer generated alterations in reality I enjoyed the writing, but, almost by necessity, the plotting became predictable and mechanical A strange book, with an interesting premise the conflation of 21st century technologies with the American Revolution but ultimately unsatisfying.
