Anyone else read it?

Just finished and really enjoyed it, although it is meant to be fiction it relies alot on Bush's presidency and his wifes biography, interesting reading.

I saw this in Waterstones and was tempted but then I wondered if it would be too ponderous so picked up ffffion's biog of Lloyd George's women and the new Anita Shreve!

I liked it, not exactly riveting but a nice book

I have just started on the new Anita Shreve, which is just ok so far smile

I am reading it now!

Have only just started it though but think it will be interesting;

Was worried it would be a hard read but doesn't seem to be so far.

[Quick hijack but has anyone read "Home"? If so please could you explain what it's about and why all the reviewers have gone nuts about it? Nothing, absolutely nothing has happened]
