The overall story is engaging and full of juicy and gossipy details of interest to a Clinton loathing Republican like myself. But perhaps it's just as well that Mr. Klein has found other narrators for his subsequent books. I am an aspiring voiceover artist and hope to be able to narrate audiobooks myself someday. Mr. Klein doesn't appear to have good performance control. His constant inhalations of breath and audibly swallowing into the microphone are an unwelcome distraction to what is otherwise a gripping story.
Edward Kline's book was a disappointment. Just as the Swift Boats was a hack job on John Kerry so is this toward Hilary Clinton. I was always under the impression that Kline was an objective investigative reporter.. Well, that's certainly not the case here. The book, like, Unfit for Command (Swift Boats) is filled with anonymous sources, poorly researched and simply vindictive from start to finish. I was expecting more from Edward Kline, perhaps next time.
Don't waste your time. Brought to you by the same folks that will stoop to anything to derail any Democrat who doesn't agree 100% with our current President. If you think the DaVinci Code is non-fiction, you'll believe this is a biography!
This book is nothing but a long rant by someone who really hates Hillary. Yes she is ambitious, yes she is a politician, this is news how? How many people in Washington are not ambitious politicians? Instead of wasting your money on this garbage why don't you read a book about how Dubya's adminsitration is destroying our country and taking away our hard earned civil rights?
Did you know that Hillary Clinton is the Antichrist? Well according to this book she is portrayed as such. The author claims to know the truth about Hillary, but this is nothing but a hate Hillary book. Within the first 2 chapters you will find out that Hillary is a lesbian, that she had an affair with one of her male empolyees and that she was the reason why he committed suicide. I listened to the first disc only, and threw the rest into the garbage. " If you can?t dazzle them with your brilliance, baffle them with your BS! ".
This is absolutely shameful. I gave this a one only because it's not possible to give zero stars (or perhaps more appropriately, negative stars). It's not so much that this book is poorly researched as it's not researched at all. There are so many outright lies in this thing, it would take a tome the length of "Gone With the Wind" to cover them all. Klein couldn't come up with enough new lies, so he rehashed old ones that were long-ago refuted (e.g., delays at LAX due to the infamous haircut - never happened; the misuse of FBI files - never happened). His lies about Moynahan not being able to bring himself to say her name in an introduction during her Senate campaign are easily refuted simply by viewing a tape of the event. Moynahan used both "Hilary" and "Mrs. Clinton" in his introduction, but in sentences conveniently omitted by Klein. He also conveniently omitted any ellipsis when quoting Moynahan, to indicate omissions. He isn't even consistent in his slander, suggesting that she is simultaneously sexually frigid, a raging lesbian, and engaged in extra-marital affairs with men. So which is it? Klein didn't even bother to check the spelling of names - and thus misspelled them. It just goes on and on. Don't waste your money, time, or brain cells on this trash. Life is too short.
Here's what Peggy Noonan, writing at WSJ.com had to say about this book:
"In terms of political impact it is not a takedown but a buildup. Dick Morris says its sensational charges will only "embolden" her. They will certainly tend to inoculate her against future and legitimate criticism and revelations. The book is poorly written, poorly thought, poorly sourced and full of the kind of loaded language that is appropriate to a polemic but not an investigative work."
