مكثت متأخراً في انتظار بيتر ليأتي إلى نافذتي لعدة أشهر ، لكنه لم يأت أبدًا. ربما سيأتي عندما يكون لدي أطفال مني؟ الموسيقية ، الفيلم وما إلى ذلك لها سحرها ولكن في النهاية لا تقترب من الكتاب. Neverneverland ليست بعض يوتوبيا مثالية ، إنها مخيفة بقدر ما هي مثيرة. إذا فاتك هذا واحد كطفل يستلم السلعة.
I always love Sophie Kinsella's books but this tended to drag on a bit in the end for me. Otherwise very readable.
Hitchens' tome has two noticeable flaws, both tied into the book's brevity: one is that he takes for granted, at times, a familiarity with names and dates and things that are no longer really a part of the cultural landscape; second, he takes it a bit easy on the right, practically painting them as upstanding men of morals engaged in an honest campaign against Clinton. But this isn't meant to be a long, evenhanded reading of the Clinton years; rather, it's a scathing one-sided rant against the former president and his retinue (including his now presidentially aspirant wife), dispelling any notions of a "right-wing conspiracy". I was a bit young during the Clinton years, my politics then unformed, but I've heard rumblings since about his betrayal of the left. Hitchens lays it all out, the bombings, the "welfare reform", etc., ultimately making a convincing argument that Clinton's sexual escapades, an indication of his character, are all wrapped up in his perfidious policy. It's an enlightening read, and Hitchens writes with a characteristically coruscating wit and style. It's too bad he's no longer on our side.
