the right stuff in the wrong place

the majority of this book is the author's attempt to present herself as completely Without Blame and highly talented and desirable at very many vocations. given how highly she portrays herself it seems almost impossible to imagine that she did not recognize in Trump what has been patently obvious to most of the rest of the world. her description of Trump's mental deterioration validates what has been said in other quarters. this is an easy read with almost no new information. it is a shame if she is as good as she says she is that she didn't apply herself in a direction for the good of all concerned rather than just self-interest.

with each obstacle she faced she became stronger and more determined! This Woman's life was filled with challenge and drama. She managed to turn each chapter of her life into an adventure which strengthened her and delighted her friends. the book is so well written I could hardly put it down. She dazzles with wordplay and metaphor building while telling an incredible story.

this is an action packed suspenseful deliciously written novel. it incorporates some of the best of political intrigue, present day conspiracies and global competition for wealth and power. ultimately, however, it gives us a view of how our national leader might inspire our nation in a Direction which actually nurtures and protects the citizens.

this book was both ribbiting and suspenseful. At one point I had to stop listening because I became so anxious on behalf of the main character. Once I resumed listening I found it to be very thought-provoking, incredibly creative and left me aware I still have personal work to do.

as a retired psychotherapist I overly identified with the main character and became very anxious as one after another challenge presented itself for him. this was very well written and highly suspenseful with a very creative closure.

this was a suspense filled delightful story. however it was almost nothing like any Follett book I have read in the past to the degree that I would not have thought he wrote it.

This book, beautifully written and performed, provides an amazing amount of historical information on the final days of Lincoln and those immediately surrounding him. The information is provided in utterly readable storybook fashion. I was particularly interested in the depiction of Mary Lincoln's grief compared to other purported historical accounts. As well, the incredible self-deception of Booth and his eventual capture was quite interesting.

This fantasy deals rather creatively with concepts of parallel universes or dimensions, archaic and advanced concepts of deities, and learning through diversity. The dynamic interplay of sexuality and violence weaves itself throughout the story line. As well, the repercussions of fear and attraction relative to evil in a land of sweetness and light are interestingly addressed. That which might otherwise be termed as manifestation of consciousness is neatly packaged as magic. This will likely appeal more to younger readers.
