    Northern Neighbour Perspective

    I believe most of my fellow Canadians would agree that American politics are far more interesting than our own. And being caught up in the overwhelming coverage of Clinton and his White House antics near the end of the millenium, I couldn't help but buy this book as I was browsing through biographies last year. Hilary Clinton truly is an exceptiuonal woman. Whether you are an admirer or a critic of Hilary's, Sheehy's book gives you insight into the true driving force behind Bill's success as a politician. Of course, we've heard the jokes about who really wears the pants in the Clinton family, and we all smirked when we we caught wind of the 'two-for-one' deal Americans would get when they elected Clinton as President. But while reading Hilary's Choice, you realize how close the jesting is to reality. I can't imagine how Bill would have done it if he had not had his wife at his side... Keeping that in mind, by applying the same energy, determination and cunning she displayed throughout her husband's political career to her own endeavors, Hilary will do just fine on her own. The book itself is a good solid read, and I couldn't put it down-- although the last quarter or so seemed to lag. Overall, I would recommend this book to anyone, whether you like politics, Hilary, or a good book you can sink in to. (I'm usually a fiction buff, this book was a welcome break.)

    Fascinating Reading

    I have always been intrigued by Hillary, but did not know much about her until reading this book. I think it is a balanced, well-written and insightful presentation of her and her relationship with Bill. After reading the book, I found I liked Gail Sheehy more and Hillary and Bill less.

    I understand her better now!

    And I like her! I hope to see her break out of the quaqmire in which she has been mired with Slick Willy and have a life of her own. This was a fascinating read.
