I am English so that may colour how I see this, but I thought the material could have been dealt with in a more measured way and less sensational. Surely the facts of this presidency and how it came about speak loudly enough? I found the reader to be very bombsstic and I would’ve appreciated a more subtle, and analytical approach. I get that The book will sell for its summary of deeply worrying, bordering on outrageous actions and decisions of this White House and the apparently inside experience of the author as he watched some of this in person but dialling it back 30% would have made it more palatable to listen to.

We in Europe feel strongly about American presidencies, perhaps because of their habit of declaring themselves the leaders of the free world. “Not of us!” we often want to cry. Obama was called the best American president Europe ever had; and conversely many of us heard about the election of DJT with horrified dismay. I wanted “Fire and Fury” to untangle the events of 2016 & 2017 and show some kind of comprehensible narrative arc. In the first few chapters, and the epilogue it has done that to some extent, so well done. The trouble is the context, the weather, the hollow-centred battering randomness of Trump’s White House. Not Michael Wolff’s fault obviously, but it’s frustrating. And then there’s trust: what’s Wolff’s agenda? One or two important questions go unanswered. Despite all that I would heartily recommend this book, it’s full of surprising, interesting,significant, sometimes funny revelations.

Couldn’t stop until finished. Great audio. Can’t beat this shit for sure. Highly recommended. It’s really an amazing account of the Trumpworld.

I’ve never read a book so quickly nor eagerly. This really confirms what most of us have suspected
