United States of Japan by Peter Tieryas
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Brilliantly powerful alt history tale that is pure brutal energy from start to finish. I loved alternate histories as a kid, but unfortunately my library carried little beyond Harry Turtledove, (no slight to the man, but as a massive young consumer of books, it got old fast.)
Fast paced, great characters, broken messed up people that even with flaws you care for. It is amazing at the total change of the world with just minor changes in history.
If you want to peer behind the curtain, this a buy for you, see what could of have been. Small warning, there are several extreme cases of violence and horrible acts in this story, so if that's a sticking point with you, consider yourself warned.
great story, will check out more from Mr. Tieyras
