A look at the US political system

I do not think this is one of Leon Uris' best books. I found it dragged in the middle and Uris could have reduced the four hundred pages considerably without detracting anything from the story. It is the life story of a presidential candidate in the 2008 election. Hi...
I do not think this is one of Leon Uris' best books. I found it dragged in the middle and Uris could have reduced the four hundred pages considerably without detracting anything from the story. It is the life story of a presidential candidate in the 2008 election. His opposite number is already in the White House trying for a second term. We have a more concise version of his life. Quinn Patrick O'Connell, the candidate, is a man with high principles who makes enemies among supporters of the gun lobby and the racist segments of American society. O'Connell, is leading on points when the book opens but he has discovered a secret which could cause him to lose the race.

    Worth your time

    This is a thought provoking and emotionally satisfying novel. It is a bit scattered, but all in all, an excellent read.

    It's About Time

    Leon Uris has outdone himself. The author has written a powerful novel which speaks to the immediate issues facing America today, issues which, if not dealt with, will one day destroy us. He speaks the truth about political corruption, racism, terrorism, the Second Amendment, violence, and hate groups which will stop at nothing to uphold their particular brand of terrorism. Quinn O'Connell embodies all that is honorable and trustworthy, courageous and bold; so much so that we can only hope he could be real. But I did find hope here. I want so much to believe that there really is a person of such integrity who could lead our beloved nation out of its present climate of dirty politics, hatred, racism, and violence. I wish that everyone would read this book; and I am grateful to Leon Uris for planting seeds of hope in my heart.

    author definitely gets his point across

    Leon Uris is getting older. That is clear in terms of his writing. However what he has to say far outweighs his writing style. His message of gun control,our fixation with the Internet, anti-semitism, etc.apparantly made his mark since you get his message. This was his goal. It has been well established that he is a wonderful writer. He didn't have to prove this again. It was his message that was important to him. He knew he had an audience and hoped that this audience would listen and act. Let's pray that it will be heard and that there will be some changes made.
