Lionel Shriver's books cover a wide variety of topics, but I think she's strongest when writing about families and relationships (Big brother, We need to talk about Kevin, the Post Birthday World) and weakest when trying to ironically address serious issues (this and Game Control) While the premise is amusing, the story drags and the end is insipid and annoying.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
Probably not. It's the least favorite of Lionel shriver"s books, for me.
What could Lionel Shriver have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Nothing. The writing is superb. The subject matter didn't interest me.
Which scene was your favorite?
The part here the main character's illsuions about his icon are shattered. Can't be too specific because I don't remember.
Could you see The New Republic being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
Sure. It would be on Showtime or HBO. I see Rupert Everett as being the star.
Any additional comments?
I like it better when Lionel Shriver's narrator is a woman.
