Democracy: Mistitled but solid.
i thought this book was constructed very choppy, and sort of hard to follow. But the premise ends up making sense to the reader. The story is a sorted tale of a U.S. Senator's wife and her family and 'friends'. She is the center of public attention and a lush at all the social functions. There is a hidden clue that Inez, the wife, has a taste for painters in her life and is the rumor weed in the New York high life. I had to read this for a Government class, but i found no Democracy in it at all as the title would prove false. The story is loosely based on the Vietnam war ending but has no direct link to the war or it's happenings. I thought novel as a whole was crafty in title to attract readers and kept them with the love story that was witty and scandelous.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
