Would you listen to Unbelievable again? Why?
This takes one on a day by day tour with the one network reporter who followed Donald Trump through his entire election process. Great insight into how she felt when brutalized for being a part of the press. She uses much humor and it is a delight to listen to. I hope she will do more. Thank You Katy Tur.
What other book might you compare Unbelievable to and why?
It stands on its own.
What does Katy Tur bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Tone of voice, laughter and it just felt like a friend sitting down and telling you the whole unbelieveable story. Much fun to listen to.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Any additional comments?
Please write more Katy, you have a real knack for it.

Like the campaign it chronicles, this book is difficult to describe. There's a lot happening, and it's a bit difficult to process. That's not a slam at the author - Katy Tur captures the mood of the campaign - at least as I remember it - quite accurately, in all of its outrageousness and absurdity. There's also quite a bit of interesting information about the life and process of a campaign reporter and the supporting crew, which I found fascinating. There was even some interesting background on the author herself.
I have doubts about whether the US can withstand an election more fraught than 2016's election, which means that this one is probably going to be a major chapter in our history. I have no doubt that this book will be an invaluable resource for those struggling to understand just what was going on in the winning campaign in America 2016. Be aware that if you're still reeling from the results of the election yourself, you may find this to be an unpleasant reminder of how we got here - I know that I did. But again, that is if anything to the author's credit - she painted a very vivid picture. Just be warned that looking at that picture may not be pleasant or easy for some.

Excellent listen. Binged until it had finished as I did with Hillary's book. US politics so complicated for a Brit....

An incredible, albeit shockingly depressing story told in a lite and beautifully compelling way. I hope no one is able to ever give such a close account of his time as president simply because i dont hate a human being enough to want them to spend such time around the subject of this book. Katy Tur deserves our gratitude and sympathies for enduring such a task with so much gusto its actually enjoyable to hear or read about it.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
This is an honest, candid and at times fun account of an on the ground reporter following a quite uncharacteristic electoral campain. It is true that what is detailed in her book will become historical facts; we will be able to go back to significant moments that baffled the world looking at the American elections which were supposed to be the exercise of democracy at its best. I am still trying to come to grip with the choice the American Electoral
College made chosing everything that stand against moral integrity for the White House. Manipulation is what put this man as so called 'leader of the free world' and I am looking forward to see him out. Thanks Katy and keep up your good work. I love journalists who have a strong view of their tasks as I was one of those.

No doubt that Katy Tur took the reader through the biggest events of the campaign and that she had a front row seat from which to do it.
However, her allusions to how hard her work was, and the difficulties of living on the road, were credibly repetitive and greatly detracted from the book.
