Book Review: Trump Aftershock: The President’s Seismic Impact on Culture and Faith in America by Stephen E. Strang

Trump Aftershock: The President’s Seismic Impact on Culture and Faith in America by Stephen E. Strang

Whether you voted for Donald Trump or you didn’t, you have to admire the accomplishments he has made in his short time in office.  That is what Trump Aftershock: The President’s Seismic Impact on Culture and Faith in America by Stephen E. Strang is all about.

Strang has definitely done his research. He cites multiple surveys and studies in his new book.  The information given is amazingly detailed.

All this detail does not mean the book is boring or that you will zone out when you read it.  It is an interesting book that makes one think, “I did not know that.”

Strang had several interviews with top Christian leaders like Franklin Graham and Dr. James Dobson to try to shed some light on this phenomenon that is sweeping the nation.  That phenomenon is how a US President could make more progress in his first 500 days in office than any other president in the history of the USA and very little of it making it into the mainstream media.   That which does make it is spun in such a way as to make it look trivial or bad.

As a way of disclosure, we have to say that we did not vote for Donald Trump.  We cast our vote for Castle. I, David, actually believed that Trump was meant to do for Hillary what Ross Perot did for Bill.

This same author wrote God and Donald Trump.  We have not read that one, yet. Trump Aftershock  is very well-written, well-researched, and detailed.  It is extremely eye-opening and would make a great read no matter whether you lean blue or you lean red.
By now you have to know we give Trump Aftershock: The President’s Seismic Impact on Culture and Faith in America all five stars and know you will, too.

We were sent a complimentary copy of this book.  We are under no obligation to write any review, positive or negative.

Book Review: Annie Russo: Tenacity Born by J L Baumann

Annie Russo: Tenacity Born by J L Baumann

As all of our readers know, we don’t normally review fiction. The reason for this is that fiction can be very subjective and we often feel like we might provide spoilers.

The book Annie Russo: Tenacity Born by J L Baumann is a work of fiction and could possibly be called historical fiction since it is based around the time of the war in Vietnam.

This book is not like most of the “mind candy” fiction books that are out these days.  We live in a world of TLDR. Many young readers today will pick up a short book and say, “Too long, didn’t read.”  Well, this book is long and it isn’t mind candy. We feel that it is very much written in the style of Tolstoy.

The author uses many descriptive words to paint a word picture of events. It simply would not be the same if left to a word limit like so many of today’s authors use.

This is a book that is written in such a way as to paint a very vivid word picture that causes the reader to see, feel, and hear everything that the characters in the book do.

Baumann paints such a vivid mental picture of the scene in a fine dining establishment that has me still tasting the shrimp cocktail. Very few works today do that. I wish I had the money to buy shrimp cocktails for me and Suzanne.  The author made me hungry throughout the fine dining scene.

We do need to disclose that there are at least two incidents in the book where the characters use the Lord’s Name in vain.  Readers of our blogs expect us to tell them this and we would be shirking our duties if we did not tell them this.

This author is a craftsman that displays his craft on every page of the book.  If one can get through this book without going through every emotion that there is, they weren’t paying attention.

There is a very funny story in this book regarding a meeting with a nun and one of the professors working under her that is worth the total cost of the book just by itself.

We give Annie Russo all five stars and think any person who is a true bibliophile will love this book.  Yes, it is longer than most modern books. Just like a Mozart composition, it simply would not be the same if you cut any of it.  This will make a great Christmas present to any reader on your Christmas gift list. +
