Finally finished my first book of 2018 (actually finished it last week, slow getting this post out). This one took me longer to read than I anticipated. With a page total of 380, it was not terribly long. However, his writing style is a bit different from what I normally like. At times I found myself disinterested in the novel and at other times fully engaged in the story.
I will be honest it was a bit of a tough read for me at times. I almost cast this one aside to move onto another book. In the end, I am glad I stayed the course and read it in its entirety.
It made me think, it challenged my reading and comprehension and I ended up enjoying the story.
Set during modern-day American politics, the story follows the Golden family from their roots to their move to America. It draws a few parallels with our current US president.
In the end, I would recommend this book. It is challenging in some places but the book has a lot of underlying messages and the storyline is interesting and engaging.
Published in 2017, it is a modern day novel of the trying times we now live in.
Please note this is my own personal take on this book. I do not receive compensation. This is simply a space I use to share books I have read. Reading is such a big part of my life and I wanted to include it on my blog.
