    Not what I expected...in a good way.

    Normally I am a reader of Sci-Fi/Fantasy novels. I steer clear of any politically minded books as they tend to bring out my temper. But a friend of mine found a little review on the book and suggested that a few of us read it and have one of our 'book discussions'. <BR/>The writing style with it's flashbacks was intriguing. I fell in love with the character Winkie. He truly represented innocence, and the 'outsiders' view of America's obsession with terrorism. <BR/>My blood pressure did rise and I wanted to pummel some of the characters when they epitomized the all true situation of 'guilty until proven innocent'.<BR/>My only issue with the book was that Cliff's memories of his childhood were so harsh, but revealing of who he was. I don't know if I would have been that honest about my 'problems' as a child in a book I wrote.<BR/>So I will just tell you all the same thing I told my friend as I handed her the book to read: <BR/>"It's not at all what I expected...but in a good way".
