it was ok

It took me almost four months to finish this book. FOUR MONTHS! Even then, I skipped a couple of chapters near the end to finally finish it. Don't get me wrong. This book is actually pretty good. But politics? NOT my thing. So it was a mistake just to pick it up. Besides that, Archer's storytelling is top-notch, but the slow pace of this entire-career-of-four-different-men-documenting novel really grated on my nerves. I was skipping lots of pages at times, more interested in the personal lives of the charaters than their careers, which, despite trying pretty hard, I failed to really understand.
Bottom line: If you like political sagas, then this one's for you.

Bu Politics not your thing, yet you read it... And speak negatively because you did't find it easy to follow the plot. Amazing...
