This is great historical fiction. It is a story based on facts, with the artistic freedom to bring to life the characters of the past. The story takes place in New York in 1888 as George Westinghouse battles with Thomas Edison over the patent of who invented the lightbulb and is ultimately responsible for changing the world. Though some complain that there is too much fiction in the story, I found it entertaining and compelling. It is a time in history that I know little about and probably something I never would have gotten to without this book. One of my friends often said that I just want to be entertained. If I can be entertained and learn something at the same time, that feels like a huge win. One thing I loved about this book was the final chapter where the author went through the story and identified specifically what was fact, what was fiction, and why he chose to write it that way. Very enlightening and fun.
