This book opens with the question "Does the normal average American want to kill *this* President of the United States." It then goes to great length to explain that the answer is yes.

A series of coincidences has tied together many books, but a once in a lifetime coincidence every two pages absolutely massacres any suspension of disbelief. The book is riddled with grammatical errors, changes in tense, and odd phrasing, but somehow it is never a challenge to understand what the author is trying to say.

Ceaselessly throughout the story, to the point of comedy, the author reassures himself that his violent dream is reasonable. The madman is described as normal dozens, perhaps hundreds of times! Yet the protagonist seems pretty weird, oddly focused on himself, and oddly unconcerned with pivotal moments (though the book usually does not grasp which of its moments are pivotal). The protagonist's narcissism begins as annoying, evolves into amusing, and matures into disturbing. That the protagonist comes across as a vehicle for the author's desires offers a macabre moment or two, but that evaporates quickly due to the writing quality. Mr NormalMcTotallyNormal is lifted high as a genius commando, superspy hero, witty and suave. and there isn't any attempt to reconcile the amazing meme with this normal meme. My interpretation: the author's conscious message is how the idea of killing President Bush is awesome and worth pursuit, and the author's subconscious goal is to reassure himself that his insane idea is normal.

That the author is disturbed is not the reason to avoid this book. I've read many books that I disagree with, or even argue for things I abhor, simply because I seek to understand. Strangeness can be fascinating and highly entertaining.

I gave it a three. Partial because it was fictional. That was disappointing. Partially because I didn't have enough money to buy it. Couldn't afford it , on Welfare, being a Communist, Socialist, Libertarian, welfare queen from a blue state. (That too was fictional, but will make our far Right readers gleeful.)
No, the question about killing a president is reprehensible. But we are talking about "W". Voted most likely to get America nuked. And frankly, after seeing his paintings, who could blame them?
