The first nine months of Donald Trump's term were stormy, outrageous - and absolutely mesmerising. Now, thanks to his deep access to the West Wing, best-selling author Michael Wolff tells the riveting story of how Trump launched a tenure as volatile and fiery as the man himself. In this explosive audiobook, Wolff provides a wealth of new details about the chaos in the Oval Office.

I found it very interesting, although she’s suffered many losses in her life, I’m impressed by her determination and her obvious love for her 6 children. I didn’t think it was my type if book but actually I really enjoyed it

I didn’t know much about James Comey before I listened to this book-apart from the fact that he got sacked as the head of the FBI. I found it reverting and extremely interesting. He comes across as a lovely, principled, honest & family man. I would highly recommend this book

What made the experience of listening to Russian Roulette the most enjoyable?

What a riveting read-couldn’t put it down. Actually stories contained within this book have recently surfaced and are in the news right now. It makes you see that there is so much evidence that the 2016 elections were compromised. It was Putins way of getting back at Hillary Clinton for what he termed as her interference in the Russian 2012 elections,& he vowed to make her pay. All she did was point out there were corruption & inconsistentcies in his election campaign, and that was it,he wanted revenge!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Not Applicable

Have you listened to any of Peter Ganim’s other performances? How does this one compare?

No

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The evidence of Trump’s Russian interaction and his inconsistencies about his contact with the Russians

Any additional comments?

Compulsive reading for anyone interested in politics and the 2016 election. Highly recommend it

For the first time, Hillary Rodham Clinton reveals what she was thinking and feeling during one of the most controversial and unpredictable presidential elections in history. Now free from the constraints of running, Hillary takes you inside the intense personal experience of becoming the first woman nominated for president by a major party in an election marked by rage, sexism, exhilarating highs and infuriating lows, stranger-than-fiction twists, Russian interference, and an opponent who broke all the rules. This is her most personal memoir yet.
