So I've finally just finished reading the Book of Negroes by Laurence Hill and I must say, I am very impressed with his writing. Overall the story was very moving and enlightening. I promise I'll write a better review on the book some time soon!
I've moved on to read "Game Change" by journalists John Heilemann and Mark Halperin. I received this book from my parents who had read a review in the Financial Times. From what I've heard, this book has the "juiciest revelations" and insightful observations by Heilemann and Halperin, who accompanied many of these political figures during the 2008 campaign trail. It features John McCain, Barack Obama, Hilary and Bill Clinton, John Edwards and of course who could forget about America's favorite Alaskan Sarah Palin! It's a mix of politics and journalism..or should I say political gossip! I have a feeling "Game Change" is going to cause quite a stir in America in the next couple of weeks.
You better order a copy online if your interested in this book because from what I heard it has been flying off the shelves at Indigo.
