5 Stars - KAPOW!
I’ve read a number of books where guys in various walks of life struggle to come out – the ramifications being too dire to face. But a politician , especially a Republican, probably takes the cake. And I genuinely felt for Cormac – who may be the most closeted character I have ever read. I am not American and therefore I read the political side of the book without any strong feelings that American readers may feel. Is it believable? Maybe not completely. But that’s why I read fiction – it is an escape into a world where things pan out and play out better than they might in real life. In saying that ... I thought the handling of the subsequent fall out was very well done. True to life IMO
I bought this book largely based on the title, which cracked me up, but also because I loved the other books I have read by this author. This addition to her list of books didn’t disappoint. It was totally different to what I expected – which was maybe a spoof of the mummy porn series alluded to throughout the book, but it was so much more. A really good multi-layered story that, as I said before, I could not put down. My kinda “mum/my porn” Go ... BuyTheBook!!
