Book 4 РThe Plot Against America by Philip Roth 

A very timely, pertinent read. Written in 2004, and describing an alternative history where populist right wingers plot to usurp American democracy during the Second World War, the plot contains some scarily prescient parallels with current events (dateline February 2017)

I don’t usually like novels which interpret the grown up world through the voice of a child narrator, but Roth writes so beautifully and intelligently, that it works.

I generally enjoy alternate history novels and this one is very well done. Found all the I Ching stuff a bit weird, though.
