Publisher's Summary

Following Blood and Iron and The Center Cannot Hold, The Victorious Opposition triumphantly concludes Harry Turtledove's American Empire trilogy - a masterful saga of alternate history. War is brewing yet again as the U.S.A. struggles to occupy Canada, and the C.S.A. begins forcing blacks into concentration camps.

    "Does not finish the story"
    What disappointed you about American Empire?

    This book does not finish the story and the next series of books is not available on audio. I listened to hundreds of hours of a story that I will not hear the end of. Do not buy this book nor any of the other books in the alternative civil war series if you like knowing how the story ends.

    I have. Just as good as his other ones.

    "Don't buy this if its your first Turtledove"

    This was my first Turtledove and I chose it because it was described as a conclusion of the series but its just the end of the prequel. Still, they could have added a synopsis to explain some of the terribly boring sub plots like Lucien in Quebec that had no payoff and didn't add anything to the main storyline, which was pretty good.

    "What a surprise after 24 hrs of listening"
    What disappointed you about American Empire?

    The story does not have an ending.


    What could Harry Turtledove have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Not string me along for 24 hours.


    What didn’t you like about George Guidall’s performance?

    His performance was OK.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    None what so ever.


    Any additional comments?

    It was like listening to a story about Hitler up to the invasion of Poland - only the names and places were different.
