Extra Book - Rodham

 Book: Rodham

Author: Cutis Sittenfeld

Pages: 432

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.
