How the media's neive attitutes can weaken a country in crisis
Interesting concept: Drury has two endings--each a full-length novel--conclusion to his Advise and Consent series. The other, The Promise Of Joy, takes exactly the same set up, at the end of Preserve And Protect; A Novel--a bomb explosion at the rally for a unity presidential ticket--and runs out the possibility that the soft, liberal candidate survives. Judging by the title and the tone of Drury's writing, you don't have to read the book to know how it turns out.It was okay.
OK, OK, I understand that all of you who know me as a liberal guy are always left scratching your heads at my love for ultraconservative political novels. Yep, I adore Ayn Rand, and Alan Drury's books are thought-provoking and ultra-intelligent. He demonstrates good research and an obvious understanding of the (unfortunate) way that things really work. Is there such a thing as a liberal political novel with espionage, backstabbing, corruption, and ruthless power games? I definitely invite everyo [...]
Gruesome dark sense of life depicted in this novel. The parallels between the fictional President Jason and the current real President Obama are so eerily and precisely drawn, notwithstanding that the story was written almost 40 years ago. The greatest flaw in the plot is that Drury gave too much credit to the power of evil as manifested in the Soviet empire. At least the fictional president in this depiction took the honorable way out for his egregiously failed presidency.
A scary scenario of the damage the ascent of an extremist political agenda can do to a nation like the United States, whose people tend to put too much trust in the beneficence of their leaders, and whose leaders tend to believe in getting along.
This is another installation in Drury's Advise and Consent series and believe it or not's a horror story, of sorts. It sure scared the daylights out of me. For my full review visit underthemaples/2010/08
I learned that paranoia has no bounds and self-righteous conservative cant is destination of choice.
Ending one to 'Preserve and Protect'
Last (one of two) ending to the "Advise and Consent" series.
