Going Rouge: An American Life ~ by Sarah Palin

I am currently reading Going Rouge by Sarah Palin. First, I have a disclaimer. I am not a political person! I am not reading this because I was 'into' the presidential campaign either. The only reason I picked up this book was because of everything I've heard from her regarding her take on her children & family. I wanted to see for myself what she had to say.

I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised. She's funny and down to earth. She writes in a way, as if to say, she has nothing to hide. She gives her side of the accusations thrown around during the presidential campaign, but never comes after her accusers. Because I am not into politics I have a very hard time following them. Her style of writing makes it bearable to read and easier to understand.

The downfall.....If you're expecting to pick this up and read it in a weekend you might want to think again. It's not a short book. But then again, have you ever read an autobiography that was? I haven't. There is an upside to it though. The chapters are broken down so you can read for 15 minutes a day and not be lost when you pick it back up (which I like).

Whether you're a fan of Sarah Palin or just a fan of someone who would drop everything to put their family first you might want to put this on your 'things I want to read' list. If you're not a fan of hers, but willing to listen to what she has to say, you might be open to learning more about her and actually enjoy the book too.

All in all, I would recommend this book. If you don't want to spend the money on a hardcover book you can always rent it from the library (that's what I did). There's always eBay too. And when you're done you can resell it and get your money back :)

Thanks for the review. I was wondering what folks thought of her book. I think she's pretty cool in the fact that she is willing to put herself out there. The Mr. might want to read it - he loves politics.
