The Candidates: Based on a True Country, by Matthew S. Hiley

If you think the current presidential campaign couldn’t get any worse, you really need to read this book. I thought that way and I now know it could get much worse! If you enjoy humor like that in the Pink Panther movies and other comedies of the mid- to late-20th century, you’ll like this book. It’s very visual and very action-packed. Just when you think nothing more could go wrong, it does.

The Candidates is the story of the presidential candidates apparent and their campaign managers. The body count rises as the candidates and staff try to kill each other off. It’s one misstep after another, as well as one explosion after another.

I did find that some of the humor comes so fast that it was a bit overwhelming. I should also warn that there are adult themes that are pretty obvious, so you probably don’t want to share with the younger or more sensitive members of your family. (That’s right – I didn’t share this with my mom.)

Greenleaf Book group published The Candidates on May 10, 2016 and provided a digital copy for my review. 3 stars out of 5.
