I was extremely curious about this book when I requested it. I haven’t read anything about Hillary Clinton but find the subject matter interesting. I had high hopes for this work.
I tried multiple times to read this book over a three month span. I finally gave up and put it on my DNF/try again bookshelf. I hope to come back to this work and give it another go but I couldn’t get into the book on the first attempt. There were too many names mentioned and not enough of a story to follow. Categorizing the names kept my mind off the events being told and I couldn’t concentrate.
I think this is a book you have to be in the mood to read. I was reading other novels at the time and I believe HRC needs full attention to get hooked. If you’re more of a politico you might enjoy reading this more than I did.
