Pun apart, it has excellent reviews, so it's added on to my tbr pile, along with another dystopian/alternate-historical book known as The Man In The High Castle.

I read this one many years ago. Excellent book.

For a dystopian/alternate-historical book you could do worse than Dies the Fire by SM Stirling and there are now loads of them if you enjoy it.

Dystopian as in post nuclear warfare or epidemics that caused billions of death and left the world scarcely populated (like the zombie stories)? Just two examples.
