    Overall

    I've lived in the setting all my life, more than 60 years - and the author has it comically wrong, sadly wrong, and that is but a forerunner to the poor research applied to creating this story. Actually, it is not much of a story - more of a political diatribe masquerading as entertainment. An interesting, but again poorly researched, venture into France should have produced an opportunity for character development - nope - shallow, but "heartfelt," explorations into soap opera situations only produced lame dialog, transparent motivation, and boredom. The disjointed, childish, and uninteresting plot didn't save the shallow characters. I would have given this a minus number but that was not an option. We all waste some credits at some time - this was mine.

    "waste"
    Overall

    A shallow, boring, Bush/Blair-bashing fantasy. Save the credit.
