Description

Maureen Dowd's incendiary takes and takedowns from 2016-the most bizarre, disruptive, and fascinating Presidential race in modern history.Trapped between two candidates with record-high unfavorables, Americans are plunged into The Year of Voting Dangerously. In this perilous and shocking campaign season, the New York Times columnist traces the psychologies and pathologies in one of the nastiest and most significant battles of the sexes ever. Dowd has covered Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton since the 90s. She was with the real estate mogul when he shyly approached his first Presidential rope line in 1999, and she won a Pulitzer prize that same year for her penetrating columns on the Clinton impeachment follies. Like her bestsellers, Bushworld and Are Men Necessary?, The Year of Voting Dangerously features Dowd's trademark cocktail of wry humor and acerbic analysis in dispatches from the political madhouse. If America is on the escalator to hell, then The Year of Voting Dangerously is the perfect guide for this surreal, insane ride.

Professional reviews

"If you haven't heard enough about the psychological, sociological, and pathological exploits associated with the two main presidential candidates this year, then this audiobook is for you. NEW YORK TIMES columnist Dowd brings her A-game to this work, using her trademark wit and cutting prose to highlight our particularly American descent into the political netherworld of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. Narrator Elisabeth Rodgers's lively voice enhances the author's words, and her sarcastic tone fits this book perfectly. While there are times when her voice becomes monotonous, especially in long passages that mute some of Dowd's pungent comments, overall, her technique of enunciating every word and using pauses for effect illuminates Dowd's fascination with power and those who seek it.
