Part historical fiction, part legal thriller with a hint of romance. This is a fictionalized account of the War of Currents that occurred between powerhouses Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse. I loved the short chapters, the well-developed characters, and I learned a lot about a subject that I knew almost nothing about. Bonus: The author's notes at the end that explain what was fact and where he took some liberties.
An engaging, well-written story. After reading it, I enjoyed Moore's comments at the end about how he worked with the actual history to create the story he told so well.
Wonderful historical fiction. I couldn't put it down.
A compelling telling of the infamous legal battles between Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse over the design of the light bulb. Told from the perspective of the young attorney who acts as George Westinghouse’s legal counsel, this book is a must-read for those who love science-themed historical fiction.
Great book.....I learned a lot....
Tesla, Westinghouse, and Edison are all well-known names, but until I read this novel about the lawsuits between Edison and Westinghouse, did I come to realize what a self-serving person Edison was. Told from the perspective of the young lawyer hired by Westinghouse, the characters come to life as we learn how General Electric came to be. Historical fiction writing at its best. The author has provided depth to all three famous men.
A beautiful reconstruction of the struggle between Tesla and Edison. I felt I was there
