The President Is Missing – James Patterson & Bill Clinton

How much is James Patterson? Pacing, wording, cadence, the beat that drives the narrative forward?

The President is Missing

The biggest obstacle in reading a book like this is trying to cipher out which author wrote what parts. There is a decidedly pointed agenda about “working across the aisle,” and the political tones, they all seem to lean in towards one party. Former President Clinton’s was a lawyer, or had lawyer training, and that’s readily apparent.

Part of the action is action, and I would be pretty sure in assuming that it was written by Patterson, although, to be quite honest, I’ve read very little of his material. Admire his body of work, just haven’t read much of his stuff.

As alluded to in a previous link, the cartoon I remember was James Patterson sitting on a park bench in New York, reading James Joyce’s Ulyssess while everyone else was reading Patterson’s books.

It is a gripping, taut read, a little slow to get into, but after a hundred pages, it got to where I couldn’t put it down. The pacing was superb, and the ending, justified, accurate, and quite plausible.

There’s the inner-workings of the Washington political system, and then, inside parts of the presidential house, all part of what makes it tick.

Rather fun read — I put my phone on silent for the last hundred pages.

Good to the last page. Satisfying, but it does have a happy ending, kind of.
