The New Men is a pretty great historical fiction. I was not only impressed by how much effort Enfield obviously put into the history side of the tale (and he does outline some of his research in the Historical Note) but how well the story read as a whole. The characters were real and the plot was interesting.
Thanks, No More Grumpy Bookseller! (And thanks for not changing your name to an unpronounceable symbol, which would’ve made writing this blog entry much more complicated.)
