really liked it
Read from February 01 to 15, 2012

I had heard about this book on NPR and the author seemed like a nice guy with interesting stories to tell. I thought there would be a bit more about different presidents and how they handled mail from the public but there was only a couple paragraphs on that. Instead it gave a personal look at 10 different citizens in the U.S who had become steamed enough to write the president, never thinking the president would actually read their letter. The book is easy to read and I enjoyed getting to know each person. I knew I lived in my own bubble but reading about each person's life and how different it was from mine made me a little sad. A nice thing about the book is that there is an epilogue that gives you an idea of what happened to each person. I wish I knew how all of them were doing now. I wavered on giving this book 5 stars but I think I was so bummed at how difficult some peoples live were that I settled on 4.
