What Ready Player One is to 80's pop culture, this book is to 1950's politics. Lots of name dropping (Hey look it's a Kennedy!) and references that show Tapper really is into the history. The only problem I had was that the story is so slow. I made it 25% of the way in and so far, nothing has really happened, and I'm not really sure what is going to happen.

Maybe it picks up in the last half, but for me, not enough motivation to continue. ( )

Intense! Extremely thought provoking, and made me interested in the history of the 1950's. This title had me looking up stuff as I read it, which is why it took a while to read, but it was definitely worth the time. I won this book through Goodreads Giveaway and got one heck of a hard to put down and memorable title. I hope there might be plans for a film adaption at some point. It might actually be a title worth turning into a graphic novel at some point. I highly recommend this title. ( )

Rather shallow and fanciful. I do not doubt that the behaviors portrayed and the unethical devices used were and are real in our capital. Right now we are reminded daily of the travesty that is our government. A fictional book based on this is not appropriate to me. Journalists, authors, and pundits should be spending their time focused on and spreading the truth - not wrapping it is a package meant to entertain. ( )

Not bad for a debut suspense novel, and I enjoyed hearing Jake Tapper read it. I was not surprised that there were many erudite references and marvelous vocabulary. Look forward to a follow up! ( )

If the author wasn't well-known, I don't think this book would have found a publisher. The setting and historical facts are quite interesting, but it lacks in the story quality. If you are a big fan of political thrillers or the McCarthy era, give it a go. If not, you'll probably want to read something else. ( )
