A solid piece of historical fiction, full of edifying asides, although nothing to write home about. ( )

Sweeping epic historical novel tracing several families in New York from 1664 to 2009. The author did a great job of highlighting various parts of history and how New Yorkers adapted to events. This novel followed these families through highs and lows, wars and peace, joy and sorrow. The novel examined poverty and wealth and some race issues, but didn’t delve into them deeply.
It was a great novel which also shared a lot of history. Putting those events in a novel made them come alive.
Very enjoyable.

This book tells the history of New York from the 1660s (before it was called New York) through to – almost – the present day. The last chapter is set in 2009.

It mainly follows the fictional Master family through several generations, but other families also appear throughout, with actual real life events as the backdrop. Not always a backdrop actually – the American Civil War and the War of Independence are both huge storylines which affect the main characters greatly.

The novel is over 1000 pages long, but thankfully very readable and not at all dry. If you were interested in learning the history of New York, then this would be an excellent book to read, and by inserting fictional characters who a reader can invest in, it is so much more than just a history lesson. If like me, you just love New York, then I think you would find plenty to enjoy about this book.

I thoroughly enjoyed it, although I would have liked to have had something about World War II and the Vietnam War in there, but it would be impossible to include everything, and this is very much a history of New York rather than America.

It’s very clear that Edward Rutherfurd has researched his subject extensively and as a result the reader is rewarded with a vibrant and colourful history and love letter to one of the most exciting cities on earth. Highly recommended. ( )

I read this while on a vacation in New York as a way of learning more about the city. For that purpose, it was great - it gave me a much better understanding this amazing place and provided many curious anecdotes that enhanced the trip. However, as a story it fails completely. The plot and characters are predictable and boring, which made it difficult to finish the book. ( )

Listened to it on Audible Audio. This was really a great listen. Very interesting. Spanned several generations of New York families. Great history lesson on the beginning of New York to present day told as a fictional depiction through a generational family. There was a point towards the end that started to be very depressing. Then the anticipation of the worse events for New York. I actually had to turn it off and regroup emotionally before completing the book. The only negative I have is that jumping into the next generation of family members, I felt like I wasn't ready for the end of the characters. The ending tied up and united the original families interesting enough to say I loved the book and will read another by this author. ( )

Rutherfurd's habit of also making up many of his characters makes this sweeping tale a much more fun read than anyone would suspect. This is history, but with a very readable story line.

"New York: The Novel" is the first foray into America for the British author, who as in previous works never hesitates to pause the narrative to explain to readers, in an easily understood way, the historical context of the time in which the action is unfolding. The result is a book as accessible to the casual reader as it is to the history buff.
