Great writing, vivid scenarios, and thoughtful commentary ... the stories will linger after the last page is turned. -- Publisher's Weekly, on Captive Dreams

Google Ngrams give the frequency with which specific words or phrases occur in their database of 5.2 million texts in the Google Books Library.  It is interesting how well this tracks the opinions of certain historians dating the end of the Modern Ages to the Late 19th/Early 20th Century, with the 20th century standing to the Modern Ages as the 15th century stood to the Middle Ages.
