The details are great but repeated over and over. Additionally there is no continuity in timeline meaning the details do not start from point A and end at point Z.
Narration was fine and kept the interest alive. I love history. I don't need historical fiction to keep me happy, I just like order and organization I can make sense of.
The bit about the ghosts was just unnecessary silliness.
YES! Being able to hear the Presidents voice and hear him tell his own story was AMAZING!
The President said curse words! He's genuine, he has drives, motivations and emotions that we can relate to.
I just am thankful this book was out there and that he narrated it himself. It also clarified many of the falsehoods that have been spread about him in the media, especially the ones during his last presidential campaign.
This book is harsh, not for the faint of heart. The details are worse than a horror novel but they are necessary and I'm sure have many historical truths in them.
There are no happy endings here but there are stories of surviving in circumstances that are uncontrollable. I admire the strength, I follow the main character and wondered what would happen and would be shocked, amazed and saddened.
Sad does not equate to bad. I would however suggest this for adults only (I'm not a parent so what do I know,)
