Book Review: American Wife
American Wife by Curtis Sittenfeld
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This book gave me a strange, latent sympathy for George W. (I know, right?)
It also gave me the squicks from all the sex scenes.
The book is a fictionalized biography of a first lady – even if you don’t read the ‘source info’ page at the end, it’s pretty easy to figure out that it’s Laura Bush.
I enjoyed the book, and like the main characters a lot more than I thought I would. Well, except for the Karl Rove character – he didn’t play a huge part in the book, but I feel like it confirmed that he may be evil incarnate.
