by Katy Tur
You won't believe how it ends!
This was a good book to read to basically go back and re-live the presidential campaign from a "road warrior" point of view. It's been just under a year since some Americans voted Trump into office. I was hoping Trump would have quit by now. After the shock of election night, I gave him four months. There's no way he'd last any longer. I'm still waiting.
I read the ebook version of this one. There were two word choice errors that I found - use of "pore" rather than "pour" and I can't even remember the other one, it was so benign.
Tur's writing style is easy to read and comprehend but I do wish she'd have kept the political stuff in chronological order instead of jumping back and forth to election night. That jumping back and forth seemed more like a writing gimmick than a necessity for the sake of the narrative.
I was able to recognize most of the public situations covered in the book because I've basically been an NBC/MSNBC junkie for the past year and a half or so. I'm one of those people who - if I ever run into Katy Tur, I would expect her to know who I am - as if she could see me through the television watching all of her (and her colleagues) coverage.
If you follow MSNBC or NBC news outlets and/or followed Katy Tur's reporting during the campaign, you'll probably enjoy this memoir of such a short time ago. If you've never heard of Katy Tur (where have you been??) but like politics and current events, I recommend this book. For me, it was a windup for "What Happened" by Hillary Clinton.
