While the story is well written and the premise is an interesting one, I had real difficulty relating with the protagonists, as I found a number of their decisions and actions to be rather abhorrent. I can appreciate the literary skill of the author, but I don't know that I will read anything else by him.

One John was a complete dickhead at the beginning and ended up maturing into a better man.

Another John was a naive farmboy who grew into a very smart and capable man.

Both stories are a side of a multisided coin and it is quite the coin!

The world-building premise of this book (multiple iterations of the universe as a result of following different paths at various decision points throughout history) is one I find fascinating, and I found the book to be well written. I wanted to like this book. Unfortunately, I found the protagonists to be rather unlikable and one-dimensional, and that made it incredibly difficult to get invested in the story.

Lots of build up and back story, but a rapid closing that felt more like a summary than a story.
