Year 3, Book 74

74. American Wife by Curtis Sittenfeld
This book is supposedly inspired by Laura Bush’s life. Like all fiction books that are based on someone’s life I wonder how much is really true and how much is completely made up. There are obvious differences between the main characters in the book and the Bushes, but other stuff really seems like stuff that Laura Bush might feel about her life. I guess there’s no way to know, particularly about her inner thoughts and feelings. At any rate I really liked this book. I started reading it on the plane on the way down to the wedding and then I didn’t get a chance to pick it up again for almost a week, and I was really disappointed that I had to wait so long because it was one of those books that you just don’t want to put down, at least for me. I give it a 9 out of 10.
