    reader ✓ Back Channel Back ChannelIncredibly far fetched Now I usually don't mind that and I am happily willing to go along with it when it is substantiated by events and character actions This story missed those opportunities It was like living on that little island in Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs Your strolling along and suddenly a big ole meatball fall

    reader ✓ Back Channel Back ChannelWhether reading Stephen L Carter’s THE EMPEROR OF OCEAN PARK and the novels that follow that genre to his historical novel THE IMPEACHMENT OF ABRAHAM LINCOLN I have always felt very satisfied and contented when completing one of his books After reading his latest effort at altering American history by recreating a fictional account of the Cuban Missile Crisis in BACK CHANNEL I did not complete my reading with the same feeling To his credit Mr Carter has complete command of the events that led up to the 1962 crisis the diplomatic machinations between the Soviet Union and the United States as well as the domestic pressure that was exerted within each government In a useful afterword Carter explains the differences between his version of events and those that actually occurred allowing the reader to compare the two and hopefully emerge

    reader ✓ Back Channel Back ChannelThis was recommended by a friend of a friend These revisionist historical fiction novels are not my bag of oats; that said the premise was sort of interesting so i forced myself to finish itI wish there'd been better character development early on It didn't really happen at all except for some odd observations that seem to be catered towards an evening TV show treatment than a novel even at the end of the book i couldn't find myself caring about any of the characters and i just wanted it to be overIf you're big on the
