5.0 out of 5 stars Appointments by David Carmell March 1, 2013

APPOINTMENTS - A Novel of Life in Our Nation's Capital

As one who has been active at the local state and national levels of politics, I find the novel rings true.

The book shows how the full range of human activities enter into government proceedings, high-mindedness, personal feeling, pettiness, vindictiveness, stupidity, CYA, and scapegoating disrupt, distort and help our government function.

The author shows his mastery of both the beauty and precision of properly used English.

It is a good read.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a read!!! March 1, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Once I started reading "Appointments", it was impossible to put it down. The author takes you into the intricate, real life workings of the confirmation process and how it can affect the lives of everyone involved. You get a real insight into the characters as they struggle to deal with the politics and personal issues that engulf them. This is a terrific read.

I red this book very carefully. It is very easy to follow the plot and understand the complex relationships. Mr Carmell's use of the English language is very enjoyable and the book was great fun to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book November 25, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Appointments was an excellent book that kept me engaged throughout It starts out with small indiscretions that evolve into larger problems as the characters try to cover them up, until the whole thing starts to spin out of control. Like the plot, the book starts out slow and detailed, but speeds up as the plot moves on, which effectively creates the sense of the parties panicking to keep control of the situation.

The author has a wonderful way with words, a subtle sense of humor, an in depth knowledge of government, and a clever plot that combines a cynical view of Washington with a keen understanding of human nature. It creates a credible and intriguing story of DC politics going wrong.

The love scenes seemed a little stilted, but that’s not what the book is about. I highly recommend this book to anyone who gets a kick out of politics, or anyone who just wants a good thriller with interesting characters and with a lot of plot twists.

It was clearly written by a Washington insider.

5.0 out of 5 stars A page turner March 10, 2013
By jerry
Format:Kindle Edition
One of the best "Washington" books in a decade. A wonderful page turner, "Appointments" combines politics, sex, the three branches of government and intrigue and melds the plot into a highly credible account of life in the Nation's Capital. I strongly recommend the book for those already familiar with how Washington works, as well as those who would like a crash course. The result is pure entertainment.
