Landslide: The Final Days of the Trump Presidency Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
New York Times best-selling author of Fire and Fury and Siege completes the trilogy on the epic presidency of Donald J. Trump.
With Fire and Fury, Wolff defined the first phase of the Trump administration; in Siege, he wrote an explosive account of a presidency under fire. In Landslide, Wolff closes the story of Trump's four years in office and his tumultuous last months at the helm of the country, based on Wolff's extraordinary access to White House aides and to the former president himself, yielding a wealth of new information and insights about what really happened inside the highest office in the land, and the world.

As a non American, I quite accept the fact that I will not get all references and have to do some personal research, for example Wolf’s reference to “ K Street “ in relation to billionaire Koch brothers. But unnecessary personal details such as Ike Perlmutter who was a neighbour AND a Mar-a-Largo neighbour AND a show biz billionaire who sold bankrupt Marvel comics for $4 billion is just too much detail for a guy who is mentioned once- even if in a six line, single sentence paragraph.
The book never had a chance to build to it’s exciting climax because I was always being pulled back by the style of writing. This maybe a great retelling for those familiar with the people and events but it did not live up to my expectations for a readable explanation of an amazing time.
The universe dodged a bullet; this is the story of that bullet.

Try this p167 (just to prove I have read that far.) 'But curiously,the very fact that the Trump gambit was not going to succeed, that the election challenge had failed to advance and that all the checks against it had become only more formidable - and now, with the second-most-important person in the Republican partry and the most powerful Republican on the Hill standing against it - only made it easier to support.'
Woolff's style is so in need of a good editor. The above sentence is typical of the book, and grates. There are insights but it could have been so much more readable. Reads as though when a sentence wasn't coming together he stuck in some punctuation, rather than revise. This book was about making money for author and publisher - not about enlightenment. Rushed to get in the market early, and it shows.
...that exemplifies the sort of style this book is written in....irritating.
