American Wife (Curtis Sittenfield)

I really, really liked this book. There were parts of it I didn't love - it was none too subtle and the Laura Bush doppelganger was consistent almost to a fault. But overall, it was a great read.

I have to admit to being curious about what parts of it were made up and which were true. Am especially interested in her relationship with the Bush clan and how the family really feels about W.

I liked Prep as well, so I am not suprised I dug this author. I am surprised that I actually felt MORE positive about W after reading it and that I have now become interested enough in Lora Bush to actually read a biography of her now...

Overall rating: 3.5
