The Quotable Rogue {book review} & how to get free books!

27 Jun

The Quotable Rogue – The Ideals of Sarah Palin in Her Own Words (edited and with a Foreword by Matt Lewis) was an enjoyable read. It was easy to pick up and put down due to the nature of the book and I think I learned quite a bit about Sarah Palin along the way. Lewis has the chapters laid out by subject and then provides actual quotes from Sarah Palin about each topic that she is talking about. He lists where the quote comes from as well as the context so you have an idea what is going on.

Lewis describes how Palin was fairly unheard of back in 2008 when she became John McCain’s running mate and since then she has made quite a name for herself.  It seems like Palin became a household name overnight and although I’m not huge into following all the intricacies of politics, even I was familiar with Sarah Palin and I knew all about her family and the drama that the tabloids covered.

“She was beloved by conservatives, disdained by liberals, carefully studied by centrist independents, and dissected relentlessly by an insatiable media machine”.

Overall I would give this book a check plus.  I especially agree with a quote describing the book – “Matt Lewis has gathered some of Palin’s most memorable remarks, reminding us that whether you consider her a rogue or a patriot, her words reveal a genuine love for America.”

And in the end, isn’t that what matters?
