To think that the Clintons are capable of the misdeeds alluded to in this essay is horrifying. If only a fraction is true it should send chills throughout ones being. I'm confident Hitchens has not mislead the reader.
This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
A more intelligent Hitchens admirer.
What was most disappointing about Christopher Hitchens and Douglas Brinkley (foreword) ’s story?
Too many strands and convoluted phraseology; a dissertation that was far too wordy and full of references to enjoy as an actual read... Didn't enjoy the little I heard at all. A few years ago I listened to most of his collected essays book but by the end I felt they sunk into word play and I lost the substance. There was obviously a lot of heartfelt angst about how Clinton had achieved so much but with so few ethics but I found Hitchens overwrought sentences sucked the life out of the meaning. I think I need to have a much higher IQ to 'enjoy' some of his writing.
Bill Clinton continues to be one of the USA's most popular Presidents. However, Hitchens suggests that behind the facade Clinton was a sexual predator who was prepared to use air-strikes on innocent targets in order to deflect attention from his sexual and financial scandals. This is a well-argued, well-evidenced book that strips away the handsome Rhode scholar image and allows the reader to see the rancid underbelly of a manipulative, bullying, self-fixated individual.

Would you listen to No One Left to Lie To again? Why?
Yes, because I would need to hear the details again in order to understand the argument.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Which scene did you most enjoy?
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
I found some aspects of these events made me angry, and sorry that justice was probably never done. Also it made me re-appraise my views on BOTH the Clintons, and their entourage.
