Explores Female Roles

by Joani on Nov 12, 2009

I had to keep reminding myself that this was not a biography of Laura Bush. It is a fictional account of a First Lady of the United States. With that said, I felt it was a very compelling look at gender roles for a particular generation.

This one started out as an entertaining read for me but has kind of fizzled ou and I'm only around page 160. At this point I really have no desire to read further and I can't figure out why. It could be that I'm somewhat aware of how the story will continue (no mystery), or that it's starting to show a modicum of dullness, or that I'm finding it a little bit disrespectful. (Probably a combo of all three) At any rate, I'm going to abandon it. I'm not willing to take this ride for 500+ pages.
