    This novel spans the period between the Chicago World's Fair of 1893 and the years just after World War I. With a worldwide disaster looming just a few years ahead, it is a time of unrestrained corporate greed, false religiosity, moronic fecklessness, and evil intent in high places. No reference to the present day is intended or should be inferred.

    "Great book and a great reader"
    Overall

    Loved this book. True it takes some work to keep all the characters and plot lines clear, but each section, each paragraph and sentance is a chance to be delighted with a precise, playful description or honestly delivered revelation of character. The reader, Dick Hill is great. His multiple voices bring a smile and help keep everyone straight. I've downloaded dozens of books from Audible: this is one of my favorites, and one of the best readers on the team.
