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.
