Read this book before seeing the movie.
on August 9, 2013
It's not a story book in the traditional sense. But it does offer important information on Eugene Allen the White House butler the movie is based on. It also offers important information on the movie.
These negative reviews reflect that the reviewer expected one thing and got another. That is not reason enough to not read the book.
As I write this it's still a week before the movie is released. Get the book. Read the book. Look at the pictures. (Did I mention it's got lots of glossy pictures.) Then go see the movie. I have a feeling the movie is going to be critically acclaimed and well received by the viewing public. The fantastic cast is also detailed in the book.
