In a narrative rich in humor and uproarious dialogue, Off the Reservation explores modern presidential politics and whether honesty can find a place within it.
Congressman Evan Gorgoni of Bloomington, IN, has served eight terms in a dysfunctional Congress and reached his limits of frustration. A medical event brings on the epiphany that there is no point in continuing to serve. But his frank expression on Meet the Press of his rationale for ending his political career is met with the unbidden call that he seek the White House - an unlikely destination for a vegan congressman with a disdain for political posturing. If he's going to do it, he's going to do it as no one has done it before....

A Democratic Trump-A Political Comedy for Everyone
The narrator has a clear, lively voice that matches the story perfectly. His delivery is witty. The story is brilliantly funny. It captures today's political frustration with Washington politics. The story makes penetrating political observations while remaining light-hearted.
It is totally hilarious and incredibly entertaining. I was laughing so much that my husband came into the kitchen from to join me in listening. This story is like a much smarter version of the movie "Bulworth."
The television interview where Congressman Gorgoni commits political suicide. Or the conversation between the liberal Congressman and the Republican boy dating his daughter. That was hilarious.
The main character Evan Gorgoni is pretty memorable. He is a politician that is tired of politics. He is a man that wants to be true to himself despite the political cost, and he finds himself forced to run for president. The Republican kid is also a memorable minor character, and I liked the dog named Filibuster.
I received this book free in exchange for an honest review. It is awesome. Try it, you'll love it.
