Reviews for Triumphal Reich
Genuine Jennifer chapter 1 . 9/14/2009
Excellent story! I too second the idea of setting the story in another country...Australia, America, or Britain. It would be more interesting that way. However, this was still great! Loved it! I am so adding it to my favorites. )
Banane chapter 1 . 6/26/2007
An excellent read. I hope you continue this, but it also stands alone nicely.
Katsuhiro chapter 1 . 7/6/2004
Well the idea is the exact same as another novel, entitled Fatherland, so the actual concept wasn't noteable for it's originality.
That said, I can't fault your descriptive writing: your opening imagery captures the innate, lurking evil of Nazism, the powerfully malevolent lure that makes them such terrific villains.
Even so, I think the concept could have been executed a bit more uniquely: why not set it in America?
Forgive my ignorance as to your nationality, but I'm functioning under the assumption that you, as with the majority of writers on this site, are American. Presenting a glorious, triumphal Nazi procession in a mimickry of the archetypical American 4th of July parades would have been a fantastic subversion of U.S patriotism, and would have been far more affecting to the audience of Fiction Press.
Still, were I to think anyone capable of doing it I'd sooner bet for you than against you. So keep it up lad, you're better than the prominent majority on this site!
PriestSnatcher chapter 1 . 6/20/2004
You know, I've always wondered what the world would be like if Dolfie had won WWII. I really, really liked this version of the "what if." My favorite part was the beginning, when you describe the rally scene. There's just something about a Nazi rally...I could really feel the power of the moment. I felt like I was there with Gorring, standing next to him on that pedestal, saluting the masses as the black-uniformed SS marched by us, the sounds of jackboots echoing throughout the streets-oh lord, I think I need to go lie down. Or watch the History channel or something. Great job.

I don't know what to say 'cept: WOW! I like it go on. -;
Rigel Morningside chapter 1 . 12/8/2002
This is very good, I've often comtemplated the possibility of WWII going the other way as well. I'm actually writing a novel about it now.

I can't wait to see more of this story. It's very well thought out and beautifully written, and, if you e-mail me, maybe we can share ideas. _
starphoenix23 chapter 1 . 12/6/2002
This story makes you think, and you write it very well. I also found the cultural information interesting (how the people can refer to Valhalla and Odin, but never seem to mention God. And how they never refer to Christmas as Christmas-instead it's called "Yuletide". It's as if religion is trying to be avoided...I once read something about how Hitler tried to replace Christian holidays with archaic Germanic ones.) This is the type of story that could have sequels...are you going to continue this? Please write more!
Serrinn chapter 1 . 12/4/2002
Very good, well researched and imaginative. Brilliantly written. You should right something longer, possibly along the same lines.
Melrick chapter 1 . 12/3/2002
Interesting, and very well written. Made me want to read more. Well done.
