Potus, the Governor from Kansas has just won the election and has been chosen to be the next president of the USA. With his wife at his side he delivers his acceptance speech. His platform he ran on included getting rid of Daylight Savings Time, and to have as little to do with the Congress as possible, if not getting rid of them all together! Also one thing becomes exceedingly clear from the beginning-he hates the Paparazzi, and thinks they should all be locked up, and maybe turning the whole state of Texas into a penitentiary to accomplish this!
From the moment he steps up to deliver his acceptance speech and reading from the wrong paper in his pocket starts reading his defeat speech, to reading his correct speech, and stating no longer Kansas will be known as the Wizard of Oz state(getting tremendous boos for this!) the whole country knows that this is what they are in for -long term- chaos! He also refers to his campaign and the main issue being to be rid of Daylight Savings time as everyone is sick and tired of being sick and tired! That and vetoing any bill that comes to him from Congress.
The story then goes on to many crazy things such as fighting over the daily lunch menu, completely offending the maid who works for the White House, driving the Secretary of Defense crazy with his ideas of what the US should do to all its enemies.
One other comical thing is that whoever writes his speeches when he has to address the press always puts "My dear fellow Americans, and he says it every time instead of realizing that he should look before he speaks! There are so many funny occurrences that I found myself laughing long after I read this book and thought back on it. Especially the part when he always refers to the office being more important than the man filling it! Also when he states:
"It's time for those who want to participate in this great country to get down to the business of doing it. We are a great nation of doers. We are action-biased. The word "CAN is the last sound you hear when someone calls our country's great name. We are Ameri-CAN's, not Ameri-CANT's." and "If you don't want to work, how about we fire your ass and you're sent home? If you don't want to work for your slice of American pie, maybe you should stay home and complain on the Internet."
These are but a few examples of the craziness of Potus in this book. Along with the Secretary of State and the Chief of Staff and their affair, and a very important member of another country being killed during the fireworks! This book is awesome you will laugh, you will shake your head at some of the things that are written but above all a little inner voice inside you may say-it sounds crazy-but is it really?
I can't wait to read more by this author. It is well written and very well edited, unlike a lot of the Indie books that are written and not edited-it makes a big difference! This book has a lot of angst of all types, and do not try to predict anything happening in this book, it is too unpredictable and will keep you guessing!
I gave this book 5***** stars and look forward to reading more by this author!
Fiction, sort of: direct plagiarism from POTUS goes to Washington by T. Pascal. You can expect more and more reveals from the daily news as this book is immediately prophetic.
POTUS is a must-read for anyone who wants to know what really goes on in the White House, who really governs the USA, how they behave and speak. I must admit that the fact the Author is still a free man and not seeking political asylum puzzles me.
Subtly interwoven in this no-holds-barred roman à clé you will find a charming love story and a happy ending.
This is the first full-length novel by an Author who has already published a collection of touching and infuriatingly good short stories as well as a large number of essays examining the human condition from all angles, including acute.
I read “POTUS” and then purchased it: enough said. Required reading.
I want more from this Author and more from this book: it could be re-written as a splendid play that would shame Molière!
T. Pascal is a storyteller. He has a knack for taking a subject, and turning it on it's head for the reader, showing us a concept or idea in a new and interesting way.
Taken as I initially read this story, in roughly 1500 word chunks; I found it delightful. I cannot wait to receive my paperback copy in a few days, and read the final polished version of the story. (EDIT: He has the Kindle version available free if you purchase the paperback via the Matchbook feature, so I will enjoy that tonight!)
He hired an actual editor folks! This isn't common indie author schlock here.
This, is indie comedy gold.
If you like political satire (Think Hunter S. Thompson, if he wrote pure fiction); you'll love this.
