With many eerie similarities to the terrorism situation the U.S. is now facing, reviewing this book after Sept. 11 was definitely a challenge. To do a fair review, I found I had to rely on my own training as a journalist to remove myself from the emotions I experienced in the reading to an objective narration of the story.
"The Journalist" is a captivating book that had me reading quickly to follow the developments as they occurred. The story progresses well with extremely believable characters. Reading a fictional accounting of a war on terrorism by a president with an agenda was both upsetting and thought provoking for me, but I must conclude the writing is very well executed to stir up so much in the reading.
