    This is an interesting what if world, which really didn t work out for me because the narrator main character was just so prone to making stupid decisions Here is some good advice, I will proceed to ignore it Oh, look, things went wrong Well, oops It really felt on that level The main thing the story had going for it was the flipping round of colonialism, and the fact that it didn t do that too exactly Silverberg seems to have thought through the implications of the changes he made to world hist [...]

    A what if novel What if the Black Death had wiped out 3 4 of Europe and the Turks were victorious This is the story of a young man from England in the late 20th century who travels to the New World for adventure and fortune Very entertaining.

    A great book with swashbuckling narration It s a shame a followup was never written to this shortlived journey.

    The book that really turned me on to SF.

    Interesting world, and it would be interesting to see it explored in detail.The story is only there to showcase the world, and the only thing driving the story forward is the sheer idiocy of the main character.

    Interesting alternative universe story following the fortunes of a young man looking for adventure and fortune in Mexico, in a world in which the Turks colonised the world instead of Europe.

    Entertaining, quick read, not his best work, but he did a lot of research and made it interesting.

    Robert Silverberg est pour moi l un de ces auteurs dont j ai entendu parler sans vraiment tre capable de lui associer un r cit en particulier J ai lu quelques unes de ses nouvelles et de ses anthologies Aucune de ses oeuvres n a laiss de traces dans ma m moire.Le roman uchronique La porte des mondes se situe aussi ce niveau bien crit et oubliable.Si la narration nous entra ne en avant, la pu rilit du personnage principal un jeune anglais de 17 ans qui cherche l aventure et la fortune tout prix s [...]

    This was first published in 1967, and it shows It gets some historical stuff totally wrong, namely that the Aztecs only fell to the Spanish because they thought the Spanish were Gods, which didn t happen at all It is also ignorant of the disease and depopulation of the Americas Hence this alternative history has the divergence start when the Spanish are delayed a few decades before reaching the new world, allowing a less gullible Aztec emporer to rise and not fall for their tricks Hence the Amer [...]

    Alternate history novel where the major world powers are the Russians, the Turks, the Aztecs, the Incas, and the Japanese.

    I really liked the idea of gate of the worlds and about alternative worlds.but still this book was not that exciting as i expected.

    I really dig alternate reality stories especially ones where the Americas were never conquered and while this one had a lot going for it, I wasn t as engaged as I could have been.
