I’ve never read a book so quickly nor eagerly. This really confirms what most of us have suspected

A read for fun. and at the same time scary knowing that's the president of US...
Not what I was expecting it gave credit to Trump where due not a hatchet job
A good performance and we'll written book, of course when you finish it it is very hard to sleep with the thought that someone as stupid as Trump has his finger on the nuclear button.
It was a difficult listen because each day into his reign Trump became more demented..

What made the experience of listening to Fire and Fury the most enjoyable?
The narrator was perfect for this book.
What did you like best about this story?
It reads like the best episodes of "House of Cards".
This book is not a heavy weight political tome. It's a fast paced, entertaining read rather than a meticulously researched piece of journalism. However if only part of it is true, it doesn't seem to matter, Trump has made telling the truth irrelevant; the fact that he tried hard to stop it's release makes it so more believable. We've all seen the news, this book adds background and context to events we already know happened.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
It made me laugh and it made me afraid. Real people voted for this moron and those with the power to call time on his ridiculous presidency aren't doing it.

I liked the first half of the book. For me, it was entertaining notwithstanding the fact that it did not have any significant new revelations about Trump administration which had not been exposed beforehand. However, in the second half, especially toward the end of the book, Steve Bannon became the central figure, and the book was mostly concerned with his rage over his rivals. Sometimes even it seems that the book is kind of personal revenge by Bannon against Trump and his family, which could be because, in this period, the author had been accompanying the Bannon's gang. Whatever the reason was, it should be said that although there are many reasons for criticising the Trump's administration, there is no virtue in doing so from the Steve Bannon's (an alt-right politician) perspective. Furthermore, some themes like the animosity between Bannon and Trump's family, or the rivalries between different personalities and factions within the Trump administration were repeated again and again, which made those parts boring from my point of view. I would give the first half three stars but to the whole book, considering the second half, I gave two stars. Finally, it worth to write that in this book, the name of another book ("The Best and the Brightest") was mentioned. I became curious and bought that book too, and started reading it. From my point of view, the comparison between "The Best and the Brightest" and this book would demonstrate the difference between a good book ("The Best and the Brightest") and a mediocre one ("Fire and Fury").

Firstly, I enjoyed the book. I felt angry, sad, I laughed out loud so many times I lost count.
Many say it is a work of fiction, everyone will have an opinion and so they should. It is not hard to tell where a storyline has been "created to fill in gaps" and as such it is not trying to stand up as a "tell all factual guide and 100% accurate" piece. BUT!
There is so much there we DO know to be fact. So much DIRECTLY LINKED to specific people that it clearly the words of those mentioned. And so much that shows what a joke the situation is.
A great deal of the book reflects on Steve Bannon and his relationships with the Trumps, not just Don senior....VERY INTERESTING!
The writing style may not be to everyone's taste, but that is purely subjective. If you buy the audio book it is brilliantly read!
WORTH THE READ, WORTH THE MONEY, GREAT FUN, DISTURBING WHERE THE FACTS ARE EVIDENT. No matter what you think of the Orange man or the author, it is worth your time!
