This book added to my understanding of what is happening to America, like Todo pulling back the curtain in the Wizard of Oz, but it also organized and expressed many of the thoughts that have been dancing around at the back of my head about our political system in a irreverent, witty, and coherent fashion. Thank you, Mr. Taibbi for saying f***k you, when I can not.
The reader sounded like he was drunk or about to fall asleep. Maybe he was. Maybe he did. That would explain why there are big pieces of the story missing. Purhaps he just woke up, opened the book, and started reading where the empty Jack Daniels bottle had propped the pages open. It doesn't really matter. Frail Ashley, the main character, was so maddeningly passive and ineffective at every turn of the plot that I came to loathe him. He did everything but have the vapors. There were times when the book came quite close to seeming like an expression of internalized homophobia and gay stereotypes. It is unfortunate that while there are a lot of good gay mystery and suspense books written, somehow Here and Audible offered this to us. By the way, what does the word trilogy in the title refer to?
