I thought this book was a 5-star read through a good portion of it, but the last quarter let me down a bit. It was too anti-climactic for me.

One issue that ran through the entire novel is the MC's emotional impact expressed in physical hyperbole. At

I don't read much non-fiction. This is probably the 4th or 5th one I've read on trump in the last 2 years and by far the best, though former acting-director of the FBI, Andrew McCabe's is a very close second.

Stirred by Nancy S.  Thompson
"Thriller. Complicated. One sitting. There’s a 16 year age difference. But not really dealt with or made an issue. Dual first person POV. Only continuity error is bags when they check in. Outstanding read. "

“All we are is who we surround ourselves with and let into our hearts.”
Nancy S. Thompson, The Mistaken

“Have you ever loved or even wanted someone so much you didn't want to live if they weren't there right next to you every minute of the day?”
Nancy S. Thompson, The Mistaken

“The lyrics,
'Tell me would you kill to save a life...would you kill to prove you're right?'
They've often made me wonder, what would make a good man do know, really awful, like kill or whatever. And well, now...I guess I have my answer don't I?”
Nancy S. Thompson, The Mistaken

“It would be too easy to say that I feel invisible. Instead, I feel painfully visible, and entirely ignored.”
David Levithan, Every Day

“Sometimes I feel so- I don’t know - lonely. The kind of helpless feeling when everything you’re used to has been ripped away. Like there’s no more gravity, and I’m left to drift in outer space with no idea where I’m going’
Like a little lost Sputnik?’
I guess so.”
Haruki Murakami, Sputnik Sweetheart

“A great fire burns within me, but no one stops to warm themselves at it, and passers-by only see a wisp of smoke”
Vincent Van Gogh
