I got hooked on the John Edwards story in Game Change. For my money, all other political scandals pale in comparison.
But wait! Should you get this much pleasure out of the misfortunes of flawed mortals? Definitely not. But if you're going to do it anyway, this book is good!
First - Cassandra Campbell's narration is flawless. She found the perfect tone and did an amazing job with it.
Also - The writing's great.Easy prose. Story has good pace and flow. It tells you everything you want to know and not much you don't (I'm not a huge fan of the "How childbirth changed my life" narrative, but it passes).
If you read, "The Politician", this is a fascinatingly different perspective on the same events. It gave me a total Rashomon buzz.
As to who to believe, I'm going with Rielle. Here's why: She is SPECTACULARLY shameless. Her lack of guilt about that whole adultery thing is just jaw dropping. Not so much as a tickle of remorse. So, why would she lie? About what?
Which brings me to my final point: If there's not enough speaking ill of the dead going on in your life, you can fill up here. Not a lot of (any) sympathy for Elizabeth, but crazy, screaming shrew stories galore.
