Book Review: American Wife

American WifeAmerican 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.
