Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Eric Flint’s 1632 presented listeners with a fascinating alternate history of the Thirty Years’ War, through the eyes of a West Virginia community tossed back in time to 17th-century Germany. Here, Flint teams up with acclaimed science fiction author David Weber to continue his epic tale. In 1633, the West Virginians attempt to use their modern-day knowledge to build a resistance against the forces of France, Spain, and England.

    "plodding"

    Plot plods along, reading like an authors back story. Minimal social interaction. Hopefully the next book is better.

    "Fun"

    A well read, fun continuation of 1632 not unlike the Safehold series. If you like the first one, listen to this one.

    "Good Follow up to 1632"

    this is a strong sequel to 1632. while it loses a bit of the magic the first novel brings, in part because we know understand what happened and in part because certain previously key characters barely are involved, the novel still advances the story and lives of our favorite transposed West Virginians. this string of novels is basically a What If modern man interrupted the 30 years war.

    Story
    "A very detailed story"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I was very thrilled about the first book in the series but as I struggled to listen to this one, I found my self often getting quite bored of endless details of everything. However it is a good entertainment if you have the time and focus to remember all those characters in the stories and their day to day life leading up to some excitement. The story is interesting and explores endless possibilities which may have had used some editing.


    What could Eric Flint and David Weber have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Long conversations could sometimes been explained briefly to get on with the story.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    I suppose so. He did what he could reading a never ending story.


    Do you think 1633 needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Why not if the demand is there.


    Any additional comments?

    Thanks for the effort. Although I might not be ecstatic over this one, I do appreciate alternative history and 1633 is by far NOT the worst on the market and by editing it slightly it could be great.

    "Great sequel!"

    Just as good as the 1st. A few more history lessons in this one, but a great listen.

    "Great series"

    Combo of real history and science fiction is a winner. Characters are consistent and believable although the authors' political bias is ---obvious--- to put it mildly. Getting /Spinoza in there was very clever. Looking forward to rest of the series.

    "A Team Worthy of Greatness"

    If 1632 was great 1633 is better in every way. David Webber is a master writer and Eric Flint is a master idea man and historian. The two work together skillfully and cover each others weakness very well.

    "definitely better than the first!"

    like the first it is readable but the characters are less frustrating, the politics better, and and pace more comfortable.
