This book really sucked me in! Kind of scary, the idea that someone like that could become president of the United States (wink nudge)...!

After a book like "The Stand" though, I was caught off guard by the shorter length of this one. That isn't really a bad thing, of course. If every book he wrote was a doorstopper I'd never get through them all.
