At the time the brutality of such conflicts seemed to me secondary to the fact that the ancient grievances fueling them had been handed down from generation to generation by word of mouth alone; I thought this a place where I might be at least marginally sure that the human behavior around me was not being manipulated by the unseen hands of those.

This was an interesting novel that took some odd twists and turns at points. I do enjoy Mr. Carr`s writing style and story telling. This was not my favorite of his books, but it was still a very unique, original story. It is set in a grim future where a group of technologically advanced geniuses is going about preforming mischief. They are a little like half-assed super villains (that makes the book sound more amusing than it is). The main character, Gideon, really doesn`t seem to fit in with this group. I never fully understood why he was recruited other than he was apparently a good looking psychologist with skeptical view of American history. Like I said, it was an interesting book and if you like Mr. Carr`s writing style, you may like this. If you are looking for another Alienist, this is not it.

Caleb Carr is a strong writer. His prose is very engaging and, even here, in a book I did not really care for, his writing has the ability to pull you along. That made this book an easy read; however, this simply is not a high quality story--certainly no where near the excellence of The Alienist or even The Angel of Darkness.
Perhaps I read too much science fiction in my younger days but Carr seems a little out of his league here. As I read this book I thought of something I'd read by a science fiction author/critic awhile back (I can't remember who--maybe Lester del Rey or Orson Scott Card?) who said that a science fiction writer was allowed one "impossible" thing when imagining the future--for example, faster than light travel--and everything else had to center around that. Otherwise the reader wouldn't be able to suspend his disbelief. The story would contain too much information to absorb.
That seems to be the trap into which Carr has fallen. There are so many things that are possible that Carr has created--computer-altered assasinations, anti-gravity ships, genetically-altered superhumans, etc.--but all together in one story it is too difficult to take it all. It seems a mismash of possible futures rather that one well-developed possible future.
And then he finishes with the unforgivable sin of a world changed by time-travel--and he doesn't even tell us what was changed and how it could have created this new world--and he tops it with making that new world a better one. True, Carr gives us a lot of interesting things to think about but I guess I don't like my dystopian futures topped with a happy ending.

Little Devil
This book was fun as its near future draws some possible conclusions that bring on lots of possible discussion. It also is a good at helping the reader question what they view in the media and how easy it could be to pass on non factual data to be accepted in the mass population as fact.
The protagonist was too informed, too all knowing as a psychologist who has to question morality as well as choices of the other characters.
The ending was disappointing as so many are with the 'fell swoop' to tie up all loose ends, and not satisfying in that way when you are told it is all just a dream, an alternate reality.
Still this book does linger and I hope the author continues to improve on this alternative future genre. A tighter editing could have helped the ending perhaps or encouraged more questions.

On of my three favorite books by Mr. Carr and on a personal favorite top twenty of all time for me.

This was my first Caleb Carr novel; the writing and concept were very reminiscent of Jules Verne and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, and certainly grabbed my attention. But, as the booked unfolded, I was disappoinmted in the development of the characters, the delivery of the plot, and the abrupt and anti-climactic ending.
It seemed that the book was written too quickly to make an arbitraty publishing date, rather than crafted carefully for the readers' delight. All-in-all a disappointing first foray with Mr. Carr.

Doesn't measure up with his other books.

Great read. Love Caleb Carr.

4stars for a story very different than any I ha e previously read. It is a bit dark a d with the emphasis on information overload it really tracks my thoughts on this subject.
