“I'm only 100 pages into it, but I dont' know when I've spent so much time rolling my eyes. Not a page goes by but that she mentions her patriotism, her love of Alaska, how --insert here-- inspired her in later life, the thrill of reciting the pledge of allegiance at age five, her faith, it goes on and on and on. Every single flipping page! And the writing is so poor. You'd really think they could have found a decent writer to be her ghost. One of my favorites is when someone suggested she run for city council, she was so disconnected from local politics that she wasn't even sure how to pronounce the mayor's name. John Stein. Oh yes, that one is a brain teaser. Perhaps her ghost is a democrat. My nephew gave me this book for Christmas as a joke, but I figured I might as well read it. Wish I hadn't started, now I feel like I'm commited to watching the accident on the side of the road.
