"New York Times best-selling author Douglas Brunt's 'savage' prose creates an incisive portrait of ambition, power, and what it takes to win in the ruthless world of politics today." (Publishers Weekly)
The last sentence surprised me as I never saw it coming.
In this book time sometimes jumped ahead which to me left small gaps. Overall the story was well constructed. I think it only fair to mention that I am a fan of Megan Kelly and bought the book because of her interview with her husband. It was a good choice.
Retired former magazine editor who is working harder than ever as Mr. Dad to his 13-year-old daughter.
I thought this was a pretty good story but would have preferred that one narrator be used. The writing was somewhat disjointed and the use of multi narrators didn't help. Also I did not like the author's technique of jumping ahead of important milestones in the story and reflecting back on them. I gave the book three stars because it revealed some behind-the-scenes looks into politics and journalism. I'm also a fan of Megan Kelly and heard she did some first edits. A solid three stars.
Everything! I had hoped it would be an interesting story about politics!
Get Real and try to make a realistic story!
Can't remember any.
Sexual suggestions and comments about politicians should not be the main part of this sleazy story!
