Author: Cutis Sittenfeld
This is my 67th read for the year
This is a fictional story about Hillary Rodham Clinton. Mixed with truth about Hillary's past and run for President is a fictional story of what would happen if she didn't marry Bill Clinton and instead won the Presidency in 2016. Spanning the years of 1971-2016, it tells a mixed fact/fictional story of Hillary and her life in the spotlight. This is the author's take on what would happen if her life had taken a differnt path and she had not become Hillary Clinton.
This book wasn't good. At all. I had high hopes for it - thought it would be a neat idea to read about a woman I admire who did actually win the Presidency. What it would have been like for her if she had not become a Clinton and stood on her own through her Senate and Presidency runs. But the book had way way way too much sex in it and made Hilary more of a wanting girl than a powerful Senator and President. I mean letting Donal Trump endorse her? Large sections of the book actually including conversations with him? REALLY?
The second half of this book is a complete mess. I could hardly finish it. I should have quit. I am a big fan of Hilary Clinton. What the author made up about her thinking his rewrite of her history would be better was way off the mark.
